Greetings Sister and Brothers,
During our April 13th meeting we will be initiating Alexia Weaterly. Granddaughter of our Conductress, Judy, and Associate Patron, Don Kinney. We are sure that will be a wonderful evening for them.
We also have another petition to ballot on that evening. If the petition is accepted, we will initiate her in May. How wonderful to be receiving two new members to our Chapter.
Please remember to add your volunteer hours up and report them on the “sign-in-sheet” which is located next to the Registration book on the table.
Our Chapter will also have a Silent-Pie Auction in May. A basket will be placed in the dining room for your donation.
Pat Williams and I have been busy cutting coupons to send to our Service Troops. The coupons are separated into four categories: food items, nonfood items, pet items, and baby items, and add the value of the coupons to get a dollar amount. We also figure the dollar amount for current ad expired coupons. The coupons are used in the commissaries both in the US and overseas. To date we have sent $16,085.75.
Please also remember that June will involve the Election of Officers. Hopefully, Hancock County will be healthier and we can have a more normal meeting to elect our 2021-2022 officers.
It is important to note The Most Worthy Grand Matron and Most Worthy Grand Patron have cancelled the General Grand Chapter scheduled for October 28th
The Charities Extravaganza has been cancelled this year due to COVID. The Charities is partnering with the Grand Chapter Service Dogs Committee to raise money for the project. The Service Dogs Video is up and running on the OES Website under News or the Ohio OES You Tube Channel. It is Definitely worth your time to view it. On the 26th, we will be doing a Walk-with Dogs, asking members to donate a few dollars for the event. If anyone is interested in joining me on the walk, I would be happy for the company.
As your Charities Director, I ask you to continue saving your F dollars for Freedom and D for Dogs. All donations are to be turned in, in June.
Please keep all our members in your prayers, many are suffering from health issues.
As more meetings are now opening thanks to the COVID vaccine, I hope you will feel comfortable in coming to Chapter. Most importantly our prayer is that each of you remain safe and well. God Bless you 'til we meet again.
Charlotte Ballard, Worthy Matron
Steve Tong, Worthy Patron
