GREAT DAY OF FELLOWSHIP, FUN, AND RAISING MONEY FOR OUR LITTLE RED SCHOOLHOUSE. We raised $2,400. Thanks to Leslie Reeves for his leadership and Grenada Chapter for their donation of our paper products. We sincerely thank those who made chili, donated food and auction items and those who came to help support our Little Red Schoolhouse.
The Grand Officers were privileged to initiate two new members into our Order at Brandon Chapter No. 269. What a joy to have 55 of our members present to witness this ceremony. It was indeed an honor to have Brother Don Bryant, Most Worship Grand Master and our Past Grand Master, Brother Charles "Fuzzy" Cox in attendance.
Our Grand Treasurer, Sister Shirley F. Self, GGCCM was honored at the Official Visit of the Worthy Grand Matron and Worthy Grand Patron at the 6th District hosted by Acacia Chapter No. 56, Vicksburg.
There must have been a feud between the Pilgrims and the Indians at the Official Visit of the Worthy Grand Matron and Worthy Grand Patron to the 8th District. From the pictures you can't tell who won in this feud but you can sure tell there was some "heavy instructions" being given.
The 4th District Official Visit, Honor Day and 100th Birthday of Yazoo Chapter No 44 was held on November 4 in Yazoo City. Honored were Melinda Ryan, Grand Marshal and Edna Moore, Grand Martha. A Proclamation was presented by the Worthy Grand Matron and Worthy Grand Patron to Yazoo Chapter in recognition of the historical event. Other presentations and gifts were presented.
