The group was blessed with nice weather in its clean up of the cemetery. The rain came after teh group finished and met at the community center near the apartment of Janet Florence.
As it was Cinco de Mayo day and chapter members were served taco salad and other delicious refreshments provided by Tonia Edwards, Andrea Schneider and Alice Teeters.
The opening ceremony was led by Regent Hannah Rach followed by the president general’s message and the National Defense Message. Other business items were officer and committee reports and information about a training in the Southwest Territory on July 14. Some members expressed interest in attending.
