I want to express my appreciation to our officers for the last four years that have served with me. You are all so wonderful and exemplified our work so beautifully. Your calls informing me that you would not be able to be at a meeting were always greatly appreciated as they allowed me to give a protem advance notice. Thank you so very much!
Enjoy the Fall, with all of its beautiful colors. Perhaps you might even attend one of the many festivals available at this time of year. Do enjoy celebrating Thanksgiving in November with your family and friends.
When you talk with a Mason, remind him that Eastern Star is the only fraternal organization that both he and his wife can attend together. Let's work on increasing our membership in the next year.
Please remember to keep all our members in your prayers.
Charlotte Ballard, Worthy Matron
Steve Tong, Worthy Patron
