Dear Sisters and Brothers,

 

With summer approaching we have many great opportunities to thank our everyday heroes and serve or special Olympians.  Host a picnic, take summer treats to the stations, enter a float or car in your local 4th of July parade with your Masonic groups and let the community know you are there!   If your chapter goes dark during the months of July and August, get a group together and visit a Chapter in your area.  There are many Chapters that are suspending their meetings during the January – March time frame and meeting during the summer.   Consider holding a picnic with the other groups that meet at your Masonic center, or volunteer as a group and tackle a project for your community (don’t forget to wear your OES emblem proudly!)

 

Plans are well underway for our “Every Mile a Memory” session in Battle Creek.  Please take the time to go over the registration materials and plan on joining us for an exciting week of celebrating OES in Michigan, as well as taking care of the business of our Michigan Grand Chapter. 

 

The Strickland-Abbey Grand Family will be out and about over the summer months as well, so be sure to check the WGM itinerary and make plans to join us at one of the many receptions and district meetings that are planned. 

 

See you on the road!

Lori L. Strickland,                                                                         Raymond N. Abbey,

Worthy Grand Matron                                                                  Worthy Grand Patron

AN INVITATION TO SERVE AS A SESSION NURSE

At the

“EVERY MILE A MEMORY” SESSION

OF THE GRAND CHAPTER

ORDER OF THE EASTERN STAR OF MICHIGAN

OCTOBER 11-12-13, 2016

 

TO ALL REGISTERED NURSES, LICENSED PRACTICAL NURSES AND MEDICAL ASSISTANTS

 

You are NEEDED to serve during our Convention in October.

 

We need to have you within the Grand Chapter room, to assist our members when the need arises, as you have so capably done in the past.  “The more hands, the lighter the load” is certainly true in this case – the more volunteers we have the fewer the hours any one person will need to work.

 

Nurses will be needed from Monday, October 10th through Installation Thursday, October 13th, 2016 during those times that there are Sessions or rehearsals in progress.  We want everyone to be assured that whenever any of our members are seated in the Auditorium someone is there if help is needed.

 

Please fill out the form below and send it to the First Aid Chairman as soon as possible.

 

Thank you for this very important contribution of Service to the members of our Order and to our visitors.

Dear Brothers,

Our Worthy Grand Matron, Sister Lori Strickland, has given me the responsibility for scheduling “East Ushers” for the “Every Mile a Memory” Session of Grand Chapter in October 2016.  The dates are October 11 through 13, 2016.

I, or a designated lead, will meet with the East Ushers on Tuesday morning 10/11/16 at noon behind the Grand Organist and each morning one half hour prior to the daily session beginning.  I will send schedules to all prior to the session, but will have additional copies available at that time.

East Ushers are brothers who assist our members up the incline when going to the East for introductions and reports.  They work in teams of four (4) for approximately 1 ½ hours during the Session.  Preferable dress is a Tux or dark suit and tie.

Please fill out the bottom portion of this letter and return it to me at the above address, if you are interested in participating.  You may also phone your response to me at 586-405-3903 or e-mail me at: djfowler9650@comcast.net.

A timely response would be appreciated.

Fraternally,

 

C. David Fowler
