Autumn is like a second spring. Where every leaf falls, it is a beautiful flower…until you have to rake them up!
I want to thank Past State President, Sharon Helber, for chairing Leadership on Saturday, September 17th. You did an awesome job! The idea of the Past State Presidents to enter a “Sunbonnet” contest to raise money for my State Charity, Sara’s Garden, was a success. Talk about being creative; they raised $372. Matt from Sara’s Garden was in attendance and explained services that they provide. State Membership Chairman, Sandy Graham, led the District Leaders on the challenges. She suggested that at the payoff in June they have a gift to present to District Leaders to take back to their Districts to raffle off. The decorations were spectacular…. ”Thank You” Connie Arnold and Linda Stine. The State Trustees were the entertainment: Denise was the MC with the other Trustees, Pam, Pat, Mary Ann, and Kathy as backup singers (The Pollinator’s). If you missed this, they will be performing again at ECR. Maybe they will even make it to “America’s Got Talent”. The charity chairmen were busy selling items for their charities before the meeting. The Mad Hatter raised $193 for Sara’s Garden. Again a “Big Thank You” to all my Eagle Sisters who attended.
On October 5th I will be traveling to Brunswick #3505 to help them celebrate their Anniversary.
