Our chapter is having a zoom meeting tonight. Mostly to pay bills, nothing out of the ritual.

Kentucky has just started open up a few things this month. Just a few things every week to see how it goes.

Our Chapters have all been closed since February and our Grand Chapter is supposed to meet in September. Don't know how things will be by then. Only time will tell.

PA update, according to a post on Facebook from our Grand Worthy Matron, We will not be having our Grand Chapter this year in PA because of Corova Virus and our chapter officers will remain for the next year. I just went back to work on Tuesday, after being laid off for 3 weeks and 1 day. I work at a car dealership in the service department.

The state of PA is in trouble this year. we have no candidate for Associate Grand Conductress and Grand Chapter hopefully will be in June. My local chapter has 2 open star positions, and no associate matron. That's where I started my line 10 years ago, and now the Conductress and Assoc. Conductress are not moving up. We hope to celebrate 110 years as a chapter in 2023 and we have had several chapters already go dark and transfer en masse to our chapter. But that happens with chapters and the membership gets older. We need younger members.

I live 200 miles from my chapter and I had in the past visited the local chapter, but they disbanded years back going to nearby cities some 45 miles away and I don't drive but once a year for my daughter when she attends a wine festival at her job.

I haven't been going to Chapter for a few months due to health problems. Mostly, my eyesight. I think that is a problem with most chapters now as we are getting fewer and fewer young people and the rest of us are getting older.

In reply to Vahina-
I do check in weekly in response to the Sunday's team "digest" e-mail. I still get newsletters from my Chapter twice a year but they are 200 miles from me, I seldom get down there now that Mom & Dad passed and, locally there is no chapter. So I stay on the team for sentimental reasons and to feel I am still somewhat in touch with OES as it has always been a part of my life since Mom joined back in '57. I joined in '72 so in a few years I'll have met Mom's goal of me being a 50-year Member (I have her 50 year pin). She dearly wanted to see that.

Wilma, I was wondering if anyone even looked at this group any more. I quit posting a while back because no one responded.

I hope some are still around and look in now and then.

Today marks the first day of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and itís a good time to take pause and remember why we do all the work weíre doing to be part of the solution to end sexual assault.
".....It's on Us......Itís on us to create an environment in which sexual assault is unacceptable and survivors are supported."

What are you doing, or what do you think should be done this month?

Check out "It's on us."

That is happening all over. It is a shame but the younger people just don't join anymore. I don't think as many young people go to church either.

Our Beauceant is going to Lunch Bunch for Friday 28th. Red Robin looks like a reasonable menu. I am surprised at the high prices of lunches at so many restaurants. I have to check menus on net before I pick a place.

Any suggestions?

We lost a Past Grand Patron last week. A member of our chapter and our treasurer. His wife is our secretary and also Grand Secretary of the state. He was only 64. He had some health problems recently but was feeling better so it was a surprise when he passed.

Got home from Grand Chapter on Thursday the 23rd. What an experience. If you ever have a chance to be a state officer, do it. We met so many people-- officers from Florida, as the Most Worthy Grand Matron is from(Helen Westmoreland), the MWGrand Patron of course is from PA, and he was honored on Tuesday night. Met the Assoc. Grand Conductress from OK, and a Past Worthy Grand Matron from WY. It was so much fun. Now to maybe loose a pound or do and just get back to normal!! Destination wedding in November in Jamaica for my youngest son.

Wilma, it used to be that we had new dresses every year. Now, it is mostly black skirts and a white top. The WM elect usually chooses a scarf or other small thing such as an angel pin or another item with meaning to them to change things up. Sometimes a new top in a store that is not very expensive. Talk to the ones who will be officers and see what they have to say. Sometimes, they like what you like and agree. Sometimes, they will offer other ideas. As more and more of us are getting older and on fixed incomes, it is not always possible to buy expensive items.

Help! I have guilt. Next year I'm going to be Worthy Matron, and the wife of my Worthy Patron is very experienced and she is helping me find my outfits. We usually just wear fancy tops and long skirts, it keeps the cost down. My guilt comes from the tops my friend is picking out are very nice but I think are expensive.one not as bad as the other. I really like one of them but the cost is bothering me. What should I do?

Had installation of new officers last evening. Great job by all--I was installed as organist again. Many appointed grand chapter committee chairmen were there, as well as other chapter Worthy Matrons & Patrons. Being the Grand Organist for the PA Grand Chapter of OES I was escorted.

All of this after a big weekend honoring our Worthy Grand Matron at her home chapter. We all received honorary memberships. This is the one that I will cherish the most, as my mother is a 60 year plus member there.

That is too bad. It's getting harder to find people who have time to help these days. Our members are getting up there in age, and the younger ones just have so much going on. Tonight is our practice for our first meeting with the new officers. learning a new march is kinda like herding cats. It doesn't seem like it will ever come together. This year i'm the Associate Matron and I have so much to memorize, I hope I can do it.

January is a tough time for our chapter. We did our last spaghetti supper fundraiser tonight. We had a committee of 5 core members. 2 are incapacitated. 1 is working. Too much for 2. We have customers who will miss it.

Yesterday afternoon was the merging of another Chapter into ours. We had a very nice crowd for this event. All of the Grand Officers were there and many from other Chapters. It has been about 10 years since we had a merger in this district. The WG Patron did a very nice job with the ceremony.

Attended the Installation of the new officers for the Triennial in Pittsburgh last night. The installation started at 6/6:30pm and was over at approx. 10:30. The music was fabulous-he was a PGP from Cal-Don Snyder. Excellent job. The gowns were all totally different for each state. As a PA Appointed Grand Officer we were represented well. Congratulations to Sr. Helen Westmoreland from FL, and Br Robert Penoyer from PA as the newest officers as a Right Worshipful Worthy Matron and Patron for the next 3 years. The next Triennial will take place in Orlando, FL in October 2018.

Last night was our Installation of new officers. The installing officer was our new WGM and assisting was the Gr Sentinel. The WGM is our new Worthy Patron's mother-in-law. She has just been in office for less than 2 weeks. Did a pretty good job for her first effort. Her daughter is a dual member in our Chapter. Our regular meeting is the 20th of October.

Does anyone else in this group do the "team bonus points"? I got 50 Thursday and 10 today. This helps the total for the team in the "non-profit teams" rankings. It is located on your start page. You can spin for up to 5 teams daily.

Everybody should have their say. I hope if you merge that doesn't happen. At the first sign I hope someone should bring that up at the meetings. I have heard of some people thinking they are always more privileged than others, but luckily I haven't experienced it very often.

Our Friendship night and party for the deputies is over. Another Chapter has asked to merge with us. We will be voting at our next meeting along with election of officers.

I have been in a chapter that merged with another. It was all great until after it was over. Then they expected us to do all the work and do it their way, our way was always wrong.

I hope this one will be better as several of us were in the chapter that merged and we will let our feelings been known.

Our initation went very well. The other night our Assoc. Matron called me and asked who I was going to have as my assoc. Patron and I completely forgot about that. I thought I had a year to think about it. Well I wanted a newer member because it is the same old people and I thought it would be nice to get some new blood involved. I am really having a hard time with this so I will ask someone who will probably do it reluctantly.I don't know who to ask.

The inspection is over and seems it went well. EXCEPT, the A/C wasn't working and as hot as it has been, it was very uncomfortable. They learned early enough to bring a couple of fans but could have used a few more. Last month at our meeting, we didn't have any water in the building. Seems the problems always happen on OUR meeting night.

You have a busy time coming up. Inspection is such a serious word, but usually it's pretty easy to get through.Parties are always well attended and fun. Have fun.

Today is our annual picnic at the Masonic Home. It is a lot of fun for everybody, The Chapter supplies the chicken and rolls, and the members bring two dishes. The residents enjoy this too.

Twice a year our chapter does a brunch. It's OK, but I want to suggest something new to get some energy. The Job's do a spaghetti dinner so I don't want to do that.

It's too bad that it's always the same people who volunteer. They get tired after awhile. Maybe you could make it a taco bar to get more attendance. We are thinking about doing that. We can't decide it it would cost more than it's worth it.

Our chapter does a spaghetti supper once a month, but attendance is way down. And there are only 4 workers and 1 money taker. That has been our monthly rent activity. We stopped calling the regulars and getting it into the paper as a reminder. Laziness begets not much response.

Our Chapter has an annual fashion show. It does pretty well. Local businesses loan us clothes to model I usually end up buying mine. We also have the children and Grandchildren model. We also have an annual soup supper for the public. That does really well. The last couple of years we have partnered with the Masons in doing a spaghetti supper. That really has a big turnout. This month we are having a bakeless bake sale, Most people are very generous with their donations. It helps that they don't have to spend time in the kitchen. What are some of your fundraisers?

What are some fundraisers that your chapters have done. I'm in charge of fundraising this year. I have some ideas but I would love to hear about what's worked for others.

Well, now that I've had our April Meeting and Grand Chapter appointments are now made, I can say that I have been Appointed Grand Organist for the 2015-2016 for the Grand Chapter of PA. Installation will be in June2015 in York, PA. It has been tough not telling anyone until now. We were announced at a banquet in Harrisburg, PA the last weekend of March.

Tonight is our past Matrons and Patrons dinner. I'm coming early to help. The Associate Matron said it's getting harder to find people who aren't pasts. It will give me a good lesson for next year when i'mm Associate Matron. We do have young people but they work late, and we are in a bedroom community, so alotof time is spent driving.
