New Grand Representative

Saturday, October 14th at the Grand Martha reception, I was honored to present the commission of Grand Representative of Texas in Washington to Dorothy Lockett, of Southgate Chapter, in Burien.
At the end of the introduction of the Grand Representatives, I told the Worthy Matron that I thought we had a reluctant Grand Representative who had not stood up for introduction.  I instructed the Conductress to go about the room and find the reluctant Grand Representative and have them stand for introduction. When she got to where Dorothy was seated, she asked her to stand and I asked everyone to greet the new Grand Representative of Texas in Washington.
There was a loud and happy applause by all in the room. Homer Lockett, was as proud as could be - and almost lost the buttons from his jacket he was so happy for his wife.

New Grand Representative

On Monday, October 2, 2017, I had the pleasure and honor of announcing a Grand Representative Appointment.
            I chose a few not very helpful clues as to the jurisdiction of this commission, I did not want everyone to correctly guess immediately, however after the 4th or 5th clue the Chapter unanimously yelled out "Montana". 
            Brother Wally Foulkes was escorted to the East, presented with his pin and commission as the Grand Representative of Montana in Washington.  Brother Wally knows the state well since it takes him two days every year to go through it.  The Chapter was very pleased for Brother Wally.  Pictures were taken after the meeting with the current and former Grand Representatives present:  Sisters Irene Jacobs, Gini Dryer Dow, Nancy Shine, Eloise Boyer, Patricia DeMuth, Donna Kirby, Karen Karnes, Donna Benson and Deanna Johnson,
            Brother Wally is listed in the current Blue Book under Faith Chapter as Associate Patron.   
            Congratulations, Wally
Patricia DeMuth, Grand Adah
