On Friday, June 24, 2016 our Chapter hosted our Worthy Grand Matron Susan McGinnis and Worthy Grand Patron Francis “Pete” Peterson for an Official Visit. After a delicious and plentiful BBQ picnic dinner, all in attendance retired to the chapter room for the big event. We honored those due their milestone membership years (none were in attendance). WGP read their Star history and accolades rendered.
The event was very well attended with the full compliment of Grand Chapter officers, escorts, committee members, and Past Grands. In spite of a very toasty chapter room, fans being fashioned and flipped from the most imaginative sources, no one seemed worse for the wear.
Friday, May 27th was Grand Appointments night at Byington Chapter No. 177 in Leavenworth. Grand Appointments throughout District #2 attended. This was the next to last Grand Appointments in the district except for Adda Chapter, which has their Grand Appointments night on June 8th. WM opened in Long Form. Associate Matron thanked all members that brought something to share on the snack table.
At our June 10th meeting, WM and WP will be honoring fathers and preparing for the Official Visit.
At our June 24th meeting, Byington Chapter will be hosting the Worthy Grand Matron and Worthy Grand Patron. Pins and pictures, then the Official Visit. All local Byington members able to negotiate the stairs are requested to attend.
