From the Desk of the Worthy Grand Matron:


I am very humbled and honored to have the privilege of serving as your Worthy Grand Matron. You have made a dream come true. Brother Rocky and I are thankful for the opportunity to serve this Grand Jurisdiction. We thank you for your confidence and trust in us as we begin our year. We pledge to do our best and we look forward to our travels ahead.


Thank you to each of you that made our Installation beautiful. Brother Rocky and I, along with the Grand Officers, will have memories that we will forever cherish.


Sister Pamela Gill, PGM, and Brother George Wilkinson, PGP, have completed their year. We wish them the best as they continue to serve our Order as Past Grand Matron and Past Grand Patron.


The month of April will be very busy for our District Deputy Grand Matrons as they begin their Official Visits. I know you will support them by welcoming them and extending courtesies to them. It will be a time to learn and be reminded of our ritualistic work.


Information Study: Can a stated meeting be postponed? Constitution Page 47, Section 2 (f)

There is no such thing as postponed stated meeting.


As the Easter Season approaches, let us rejoice that we serve a living God. Faith is not believing that God can – it is knowing that He will.


With The Stars in the Sky and Star love,



Kathy Warmack,

Worthy Grand Matron
