2017 Summer Newsletter
Greetings Honored Ladies and Sir Knights!
We hope that you are enjoying summer.
We have been very busy since the start of summer. We began the month of June in Tracy with our Northern AIM meeting. A Grand Trustee meeting preceded our instructional meeting that focused on Opening and Escort. After our instructional we enjoyed a delicious luncheon and fellowship.
We were very pleased that our Grand Line Officers and so many other members could attend the 2017 Grand Bethel Session for the Job’s Daughters International of California held in Visalia. The Grand Royal Matron and Grand Royal Patron were invited to bring greetings to the members and guests present. Our Grand Royal Matron was also asked to be one of the judges to select Miss California Job’s Daughter 2017-2018. HL Susan said that this was a most difficult task as all the contestants were more than qualified to fill the position.
Wow! What a showing CA had at Supreme Assembly! CA had over 35 members in attendance at the 120th Annual Assembly of the Supreme Council, Order of the Amaranth, Inc. in Tulsa, Oklahoma. How proud we were of our very own HL Carolyn Manry, Supreme Truth of Palo Alto Court. Great job HL Carolyn!!!
A double treat for us at Supreme Assembly was to watch the installation of our SK Ernesto Sayo, PGRP of Black Diamond Court, as Supreme Prelate and HL Jeannie Willits, PGRM of Arizona and a member of Mission Bell Court, as Supreme Wisdom. Best wishes and safe travels to both of you during your year as a Supreme Appointed Floor Officer.
July 1st was our AIM meeting in the South at Rosemead. Our instructional focused on Opening and Escort. It was followed by the “Round-up for Diabetes” fund raiser. Thank you to all those who donated food items and baskets, cooked the burgers and hot dogs, helped in the dining room, sold items at tables, and participated in the event. Everyone had a great time enjoying the delicious food, visiting with friends, and listening to the music. There was even some line dancing and people doing the “chicken dance”. The cake walk was enjoyed by all and participants went home with some mouth watering desserts to enjoy!!!
Our Official Visits (“OV”) and Grand Officer Receptions (“GOR”) have begun. Beehive-Sacramento, Serenity, and Golden Crown Courts had their Grand Royal Matron/Grand Royal Patron OVs/GORs in July and Loyalty Court had their GOR at their annual BBQ/Pool Party. All OVs and GORs have had clever themes, been well attended, and as always great food has been enjoyed by all in attendance.
August 5th will be a full day of Amaranth activities in Tracy. The day will begin with an AIM meeting in the morning, followed by the “Round-up for Diabetes” luncheon fund raiser in the North, and then the Queen Christina Mystery Dinner and Gala that evening. Who will be the “chosen one” to accompany HL Leslie Routt on her journey to the Grand Throne? Can you solve this mystery? Be sure to attend these events–you won’t want to miss the excitement.
August 11th is the Grand Officer Reception at Mission Bell Court. August 23rd is the Grand Royal Matron/Grand Royal Patron Official Visit and Grand Officer Reception at Eureka Court. We hope that if you are in these areas, you make every effort to attend these events.
We wish you all a fun, relaxing summer with family and friends, safe travels, and happy memories.
Lab Love and Bear Hugs,
