Greeting Sisters and Brothers!

Happy New Year! In the Eastern Star World that is!

JPGM Sharon and JPGP Mike have moved on - but not away. The sun has set on the Heart of the Golden West and is now spreading its rays on the Gems of Nevada. Thank you, Sharon and Mike, for the service you gave and the smiles you brought!

Bob and I tried a couple of different things at Grand Chapter this year. We gave the 2015-16 Grand Officers the opportunity to announce the incoming Grand Officers. It was fun and well received! We also appointed two “Grand Chapter Sweethearts”, Valerie Yturiaga and Babe Rogers. What fun it was to surprise these two delightful people!

The season of installations has already begun! Check your calendar (they are available for purchase through Patty Loewenkamp, President of the Grand Representatives Association. I’ve asked chapters to list their installation dates on the Grand Chapter Facebook page also.

I hope you’re planning to attend the School of Instruction in Tonopah on December 3, and the Grand Officer reception which will be held afterwards! It will be done Tonopah style- casual and fun!

Please do your best to support your chapter and others in your vicinity. We must fix what is broken if we ever expect to grow!

Remember, YOU are the Gems of Nevada!

Star Love
