WGM's STAMPLESS STAMP PROJECT: The Worthy Grand Matron is asking our members to make donations to the WGM Stamp Project as they have in the past but there will be no stamps. There is a cost to have the stamps printed and by not having the actual stamps, all monies donated will go directly to the Benevolences. Please send your donation to your Chapter Secretary and make a note in the memo section that states that it is for the WGM stamp project by January 1, 2021.

To all our members celebrating their Birthdays in September and October..
We wish all of you a very happy birthday and hope you enjoy your day, even under the unusual circumstances in which we find ourselves.

IN MEMORY OF: Ruth E. Young (initiated on November 5, 1974, called home on August 16, 2020)
