July, already! Well, my journey began at a time no one would have ever dreamed of. So, we move on and still make it great.
My Membership Chairman, Anita Kennedy (my right arm) and myself went to Nebraska for the incoming State Presidents meeting. Things went well, a lot of information and meeting great Eagle Brothers and Sisters from 25 different states.
I thought to myself what would I write about, since I couldn’t do any visiting. Then, things opened up and we were at least allowed to have the State Officers Installation. The Saturday before the Installation, June 20th, my day started out not so well. Then, my family surprised me with a Pre-Hollywood Party. They worked three weeks making props and decorations. They did an awesome job. Boy, did they surprise me. I always know what my family is up to, well this time they got me. I’ll never forget how they made me feel that day and I will treasure the memory forever.
The Installation for the State Auxiliary Officers was June 27th. It really seemed strange not having it at our usual convention. Zanesville was so gracious enough to host it for us. We were limited on guests and I’m sorry everyone couldn’t attend. Norma and Ron Brookover, Anita Kennedy, Donna Dubins and Bill Rucker did an outstanding job of making everything perfect.
My Installing team was Patricia Rawlins, Norma Brookover, Chloris Vance, Harriet Luke and Sue Fisher. They did a fabulous job and I thank them so much for doing it for me. My Escort Team wearing their beautiful outfits were my daughter Brittney, my son’s girlfriend Kathy Mullins, Anita Kennedy and Linda Gigilo from London Auxiliary #950. They too did a fantastic job of escorting us.
After the installation, I announced my Parents, Grandparents, Sister and Brother of the year. Mother: Norma Brookover - Birthday Sept 30th - Father: Ron Brookover – Birthday Sept. 25th – Anniversary is Dec 26th.
Grandmother: Judy Love – Birthday Nov 3rd - Grandfather: Tom King – Birthday Sept 21st
Sister: Kathy Kirkman – Birthday March 31st - Brother: Jack Fulton – Birthday July 1st
I want to thank London #950, Forest Rose #2120, Zanesville #302, Central Zone, and those throughout the state for supporting me all these years. It is because of all your support, your friendship and having faith in me, I am able to represent you in this great state of OHIO. I will continue to do my very best to make you proud. I want to congratulate all the State Officers and welcome the new State Officers. I know you all will do your very best to represent our fraternity with dignity and pride and I hope we will have the year we all deserve.
To Lenny and Chuck, it may not have ended the way you wanted, but you both did a great job and the memories of what you did will always be there for you to look back on and reflect on what you did accomplish. Congratulations to Sara Favorite, for coming in as our East Central Regional President. I wish you the very best.
Be safe and stay well, until we are together again. Leisa
