Got That Wrong!!

Your Chapter blogger got it wrong.  The District Aide was not even in the same time zone as the rest of us.  It was Grand Appointment Night and although the  number of members present was affected by the Abdallah Shrine Rodeo in Tonganoxie, we had six visitors , most of whom cheerfully filled chairs and helped us make a go of the evening.

On behalf of the WM and other Byington officers, many thanks to our wonderful guests who filled the chairs with willingness, our ears with beautiful sound, and our Chapter room with bountiful friendship.

Now, about that District Aide:  Has anyone seen our gal around town?
