Sisters and Brothers,
Dear Sisters and Brothers, this has certainly been a year of changes. The Coronavirus pandemic has prevented our meetings and required many scheduled changes by our Most Worthy Grand Matron and our Worthy Grand Matron. One change will be the "setup" of our Chapter Room. Some officers will have to sit on the sidelines and only stand to do their speaking parts. There can be no singing as the MWGM feels there is an increased risk of spreading virus germs even while wearing the masks.
Both the MWGM and WGM have emphasized that members should not feel obligated to attend a Star Meeting if they fear their health might be jeopardized.
We did hold a very short meeting for election of
officers and gave the Committee Reports on
June 23rd. Officers include:
Worthy Matron Elect, Charlotte Ballard
Worthy Patron Elect, Steve Tong
Associate Matron, Roberta Flinn
Associate Patron, Don Kinney
Secretary, Barbara Pace
Treasurer, Jean Beck
Conductress, Judy Kinney
Associate Conductress, Janet Blanchard
In order to keep all our members well and safe, the picnic that had been planned for July will not take place.
Shelbie Flegal, K9 Handler-Black Swamp Search and Rescue, Firefighter/Paramedic will be at our August meeting with K9, Darwin, Land/Water/Disaster Human Remains Detection, and K9, Atlas Live Find-Area Search dogs. This will be a very interesting and informative program for all.
At this time Grand Chapter is still scheduled to take place in September, with many changes being adopted to maintain complete health safety through safe distancing and other helpful requirements. Your Worthy Patron, Scott, and I wish you a secure and safe summer.
Charlotte Ballard, Worthy Matron
Scott Nelson Barrett, Worthy Patron
