TO:  All OES Members who are attending the Louisiana/Mississippi Exchange in Ferriday, LA
 
At the LA/MS Exchange on Saturday, June 17, Brother John J. and I are asking all Mississippi Members to wear "RED" tops, shirts or t-shirts; blue jeans or slacks to this event.
They do not have to be solid red, just predominately "RED" in color.  According to the WGM in Louisiana, the dress is casual for this event and we want to identify our
Mississippi Members in the color red this year.  Thanks for your support. 
 
If you have not sent in your registration form, please do so as we expect to have a "BLAST" at the LA/MS Exchange.
 
If you have questions, kindly contact me.
 
With love always,

ShirtHello OES Sisters & Brothers,

 

On Saturday, August 26, we will celebrate Dr. Rob Morris' birthday at the Little Red Schoolhouse.  This year we will have added guest.  We will have guest from the states of Alabama; Arkansas; and Louisiana (some are traveling by bus).  In addition, our Most Worthy Grand Matron and Most Worthy Grand Patron are expected to be there.  It's an exciting time for our MS Grand Chapter and we want to welcome all our special guest in a big way.  So please make plans to attend.  Let's rally together Mississippi members and support our LRSH picnic!

The Grand Family and District Deputy Grand Matrons will be wearing Red T-Shirts with a special design on the back which reads...Team WGM & WGM and the OES emblem on the front pocket area. We are making this T-Shirt available to all OES Members who might like to purchase one for this event.   The cost is $12.00 each shirt.

Due to bad weather caused by Tropical Storm Cindy and the excessive flooding on the coast related to this storm, the above Initiation and both Schools of Instruction have been CANCELED.  All three events will be rescheduled for other dates. This information will be posted soon. 
 
We always want our members to be safe and at this time considering all the factors...good judgement must prevail.  So I repeat...the Grand Family Initiation and both Schools of Instruction scheduled for this weekend are canceled.
 
Our thoughts and prayers are with the coast area.  Be safe...
