January 2016

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

I bring you greetings and wishes for a grand 2016!

May the New Sun
of the New Year
bring lots of happiness
and joy to you and
your loved ones!

THIS IS THE DAY! Let us rejoice and be glad in it!

As we begin 2016, may each of us commit to do our very best as we serve our Chapter's and the Grand Chapter of Ohio! May we have pride in the work we do and appreciation for each other and our many blessings!

Have you made your New Year's Resolutions? If so, I hope they include "GETTING JUST ONE!" That's right, commit to bringing an inactive member back to Chapter. Commit to bringing in a petition! It is UP TO US to make our Order GROW! No one else can do it!

I encourage you to commit to participate in the CHAPTER EXCELLENCE PROGRAM. Every Chapter can participate. The program areas and activities encourage participation, fellowship, service, charity, promotion and excellence in Ritual work. Be a TEAM and reap the benefits of working together to achieve excellence! Remember, Together Everyone Achieves More!

Your Deputy Grand Matron is preparing for your District's EOP #3. See the Master Schedule or the Calendar on this website. Put the date on your calendar and plan to PARTICIPATE!

As you plan for your upcoming meetings, consider contacting someone on the Speakers Bureau to bring a program to you!

Use the OHIOOES website to promote your Chapter and our Order! There are many items of interest on the website!

Thank you for the donations made to the RED and GREEN "barns" for our District Charities during the Installation season. This project is ongoing. Who will be the EGG on June 4 at the Charities "Egg-stravaganza"?

I encourage you to make donations to the iN2L Project for the new neighborhoods at our OES Home. Help us raise $25,000 for the "It's Never Too Late" technology.

Most importantly, know that YOU ARE AN ESSENTIAL PIECE TO THE OH-IO-ES TEAM!


Charity and Service

Throughout the year, the Charities Directors will help the WGM and WGP sow their seeds and at the Charities Egg-stravaganza it will be time to harvest them.

iN2L – It's NEVER 2 Late        


These computer systems will allow our elders at the OES Home to be engaged, active and to PARTICIPATE in Connection with Family and Friends, Entertainment (games, puzzles and read to name a few of the things it offers), Therapy and Fitness, Mental Stimulation and Spiritual Support.


Our goal is to raise a minimum of $25,000. This will allow for the purchase of four systems, one for each of the 4 new neighborhoods. The more money raised, the more options that can be added to the system and programs; allowing for more opportunities for our elders at the home.
