Meeting Notes!
It was a cold, rainy evening, and chili and potato soup hit the spot, along with good ham salad and peanut butter sandwiches.  We enjoyed salad, and then brownies and pineapple upside down cake!  You missed a good meal if you weren't there!  Many thanks to Jeanette Roberts and Nancy Instine.  It was exciting to see our Deputy Grand Matron, Marie Brunner, from London, arrive for our meeting!  She brought Cathie Littleton, London's Worthy Matron with her.  The Star Points were glad to have her go over their signs and passes prior to the meeting.  We also welcomed Bonnie and George Spurling, Mary Chapter, who served as our Pro Tem candidates.  Sherri BretlandOlivet, District Treasurer, served as our Ruth.  We had 20 members and 5 visitors present. 

Our Secretary, Jeanette Roberts, reminded us that Dimes for Dogs are due on May 31st.  We continue to collect "C" dollars for cancer patients and heard from three of those we have recently supported.  We finalized plans for the Masonic Inspection Dinner on Friday, February 22nd.  Our Worthy Matron announced that we will continue to collect items for the Home Star Box, with September being our month to provide them.   

Jeanne Godden read the Resolutions of Respect for Paul Bates.  The Warder and Sentinel were presented and honored as Guardian Angels, because they keep us safe from intrusion and interruption, and keep watch over the Chapter Room. Several members shared angel sightings and we enjoyed hearing each of theses.  Our DGM also announced the EOP, with Star Point signs, passes and gestures, and Protocol being the focus, on February 17 at London at 2:00, and closed with a delightful story of God's wife, certainly an angel in disguise!!

Happy Valentine's Day!
