It’s been an interesting start to my Queen year, that’s for sure. But according to my motto, you must “smile at the obstacle, for it is a bridge.” Ladies, I’ve been trying to smile my way through this quarantine and uncertain time.
My installation was held virtually via Zoom on Saturday, March 28, 2020, at 3 p.m. Tina Dobbs, PQ, installed me as Queen, PQ Karla Goff as Princess Royal, and Princess Kathy Stewart as Princess Tirzah. Princess Judy Schultz was installed by me on Sunday, March 29, 2020, at 4 p.m. as Princess Badoura.
Since the installation, I’ve still been working and staying at home and spending time with my 4-year-old son, Cooper; my husband, Cole Wonders; my 2 dogs (Finn and Shadow); and my cat, Jack. I have been working on cleaning out our house and organizing it (then not being able to find anything after I organize!). Of course, I’m practicing my part and working on my Stated Session agenda for when we meet again. Hopefully, we can meet again in May when Hadi re-opens, as this is current plan of action. As always, things are subject to change, and I will get that information out as soon as I know anything.
I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to Supreme Queen Dale Obernolte’s family and Sharon Temple No. 92 on the passing of Supreme Queen Dale. She will be greatly missed. May she sparkle on forever in our memories.
Congratulations to Heather Krastins-Lambert on becoming our new Supreme Queen. Heather was virtually installed on April 7, 2020.
A few upcoming dates for your calendars: our May Stated Session will be held on May 4. Hopefully, we’ll be able to squeeze in a Nile 101 for new members going to Supreme Session this year in St. Paul, MN. Our Supreme Queen Official Visit will be held at the Masonic Temple on July 14, 2020, at 7 p.m. The banquet will be beforehand at 5:30 p.m. Our practice will be held Sunday, July 12, 2020, in the afternoon for all units and officers. The time hasn’t been fully set at this time.
Casey Wonders, Queen
