Cedaredge Elberta #106 had a busy day April 23, beginning with a visit to Olathe #99 for their visit from state president Sharon Sells. That evening Elberta #106 hosted a roast beef dinner for the state officers.
The club meeting started promptly at 7:30 p.m. with opening and special introductions. The meeting was then recessed for a special program which featured the Del-Rose Chorus. They sang some of the president's songs as well as a number of other songs. President Sharon and her officers got to stand among the singers for the last two songs, which was a special experience for them.
Next, Grace Farmer was honored with the presentation of the Rebekah merit jewel for her service to Rebekahs. Her family was there to witness President Sharon pin the jewel on Grace. Everyone did a good job at keeping the surprise from Grace, so when she was escorted onto the floor she was truly surprised and very grateful.
Other members receiving jewels were Ruth C. Dawson, a new 15-year jewel; Joan Rhodes, a 25-year update to her jewel; Pat Dwyier, a new 15-year jewel; and Norma Norton, a 25-year update to her jewel. President Sharon pinned each sister with her jewel.
President Sharon spoke about her projects and vision for the order. She hopes everyone will try to attend Grand Lodge in October. It will be held in Longmont this year, and for the first time it will be held over a weekend.
We discussed the yard/bake/breakfast burrito sale to be held April 27 and 28.
Thirty-one were present for the evening. A new member will be initiated in May. As a group we will go to church to celebrate church day. We will attend United Methodist Church in Cedaredge this year. We will also decorate the graves of our departed sisters and brothers for Memorial Day. June finds us getting ready for our Father's Day biscuit and gravy breakfast. Everyone enjoys this day. We thank President Sharon for the special evening. We meet on the second and fourth Mondays and we welcome visitors.
