It has been quite an interesting spring and summer of 2020. I want to thank you for your continued support during this time. I would not make it through this year without all of you wonderful ladies!
The May Zoom meeting had a great turnout of around 50 members. Ladies, that is amazing! While I did miss seeing you all in person, it was nice sitting there in my PJs for our meeting. Our May fundraiser, the virtual bake sale, brought in $665.00! Thank you!!!
Supreme Queen Heather’s visit to Isis Temple No. 41 was a non-traditional visit, but she loved Evansville and all the history behind it. We did an obligation-only initiation via Zoom for our two new Princesses, Princess Shannon “Sheay” Russelburg and Princess Melissa Turpin. Welcome to our wonderful order, and I cannot wait to meet you both in person! The turnout for our Zoom meeting with SQ Heather was also wonderful! She enjoyed speaking with you all that evening.
I want to thank my officers. Ladies, during our one practice this year, you knocked it out of the park with your memory work! I’m so proud and honored to have you as my officers this year! To my ceremonial assistants, thank you for everything…and I mean everything!
I want to congratulate our Supreme Appointees for 2020. Past Supreme Queen Sue Layman, Chairman of the Supreme Temple Bylaws of the Subordinate Temples Committee and member of the Supreme Temple Finance Committee; Past Queen Penny McDonald, Supreme Action Team; Past Queen Linda Trible, Bylaws of Subordinate Temples Committee; Past Queen Krista Williams, Supreme Temple Website Committee; Past Queen Tiffany Ball, Supreme Goodwill Ambassador to the Central Area; and Past Queen Nancy Markham, Supreme Canadian Flag Escort. Congratulations on your appointments, ladies! We are so proud of you!
Just a note about future events. We will have a Nile picnic in 2020, but I have decided to move it to the end of September or beginning of October. I thought it would be nice to see each other since the Fall Festival has been canceled for the year and maybe the weather will be a little cooler. Also, I am working on scheduling a space for our dinner honoring our Supreme Appointees in August. I have it on the calendar for August 19; however, that is subject to change since school now starts on the same day. It might be changed to the week after the 26th if the restaurant banquet area is open.
Ladies, I will see you in September for our meeting at Hadi Temple. We did change it to Monday, September 14, at 7:00 p.m. We will take all precautions and continue to follow the CDC guidelines as well. I hope to see you all!
Casey Wonders, Queen
