We have some busy days coming up in March, with Grand Officer’s Night on March 2 and our meeting, P.I.E. Day, and Roller Skating on March 9. Be sure to check the calendar carefully so that you won’t miss out on any of the fun! Here are the news and updates from our March Communication.
Birthdays: Happy Birthday to Kat (3/16) and Dani (3/31)!
Dues: 2013 dues of $10 are now past due. Dues must be paid to attend and visit meetings, vote, hold an office, and avoid suspension.
Dry Cleaning: Zoots in Concord has generously donated ten $25 gift certificates for you to use to get your white gowns cleaned. See Mom Kenny if you need one.
Sponsors and Boosters: See Mom Kenny by March 16 to have your name listed in the Grand Assembly program book. Boosters are $2 and sponsors are $5.
Initiation: We are scheduling another initiation on April 6 so you will have the chance to do your current parts again. Please study the parts of your ritual that needed work at the last meeting. We can rehearse at the March meetings. Step up will be on May 4 – Officers will move up one station for initiation.
