First and foremost I would like to say THANK YOU to the women that stepped up in April and said they would be willing to run for office for the upcoming year. Also to the women that showed up at the last meeting and helped us not only with getting everything ready for the children’s Easter Party. Also for agreeing to serve as our election committee. Words cannot express how grateful to you. I am writing this letter because of the timeline of the election, which is being held after this is submitted. Election results will be announced and the installation of the officers for the 2019—2020 year will be installed prior to the May 6th meeting at 5 :30 pm. Come out and join in welcoming these ladies. I would like to thank Sara Techmeier and Kristi Feger for their service to the Chapter the last couple of years. They have been a great asset to the board and the chapter and I hope they will continue to help us out which I am sure they will. Great Ladies!!! By the time you read this we will have had another great $10.00 raffle along with the bake sale, lottery tree and auction. Thank you all who helped by donating, working or buying treats or chances to support the Lodge or Chap-ter. In the next month or so there are many activities coming up and we need your help. The Lodge is serving a burger bar on May 18th and August 22nd we are also serving a tenderloin tips and mashed potato dinner May 29th for Cabela’s fishing tournament. We also need people to help clean fish on May 30th & 31st. There will be sign up sheets on the bulletin board so please help, these are great money makers for our Lodge. Don’t forget about the memorial ceremony on May 26th for the men and women from our Lodge and Chapter that have passed this past year. Their bricks have been ordered and I hope to see a lot of people there. The campground will be open by the time you read this and the many activities will have just begun. A pancake and porkie breakfast with live music afterwards will be held May 25th at the Lodge to kick off the holiday weekend, which John Quick tells me is packed full. So I wish everyone has a great Memorial Day weekend and are looking forward to the summer. Keep in mind, the women, will shortly be asking for donations for the family picnic paddle wheel. Always a good time at the Lodge. And finally, as this is my last letter, I would love to thank all the women that I have served with the past eight years. I really enjoyed it and may be back sometime in the future, but for this year I am going to sit back as Jr. Graduate Regent and help when it is needed, but not have to be the main focus of the meetings. Thank you for the three Musketeers that have always been at the meetings for me. You know who you are. Your assistance these past years goes without saying. I don’t know what I would have done without you. Thank you sincerely.
Cindy Deschaine Sr. Regent
