28 members gathered at Marilyn Galle’s home for delicious strawberry dessert made by Kay Hoffman!
There were many Cares and Concerns and we need to keep all of our sisters in our thoughts and prayers as they face difficult times!
The yearbook is going to press so look forward to receiving your copy soon.
Jeanne reported Reciprocity will be held April 9, 2016 at the Four Points by Sheraton. Our Chapter is in charge and so the committee welcomes any and all ideas.
Sharon took us on a journey of the 113th Kansas State Convention held this past week-end in Wichita. Sisters enjoyed a pictorial visit of the convention and all it’s happenings. Carol Warden also attended as part of the Leadership Team and they both were excited to have been a part of this wonderful week-end.
The new theme by President Jan Keeley, TEAM, P.E.O., will take us on an exciting journey for the next year.
(If you were unable to attend the meeting, Sharon’s pictorial tour of the convention will be on the blog page under 2015 Convention. Check it out!)
PLEASE REMEMBER our social coming up….
DE sisters be prepared for a wonderful evening Tuesday June 23rd at the Lazy-T-Ranch on 2103 Zeandale Road. Our ranch hosts will be Ron and Chris Willson. Below, please find all the answers to your questions about this evening. If not and you have other queries, please give Carolyn McKain a call.
COST: The cost is $25 per person and includes tax and entertainment. Please note all checks should be made out to Lazy T Ranch (NOT to Chapter DE). Members may bring their checks to the June 9th meeting or send them to Carolyn McKain before June 18th.
RESERVATIONS: The Wilsons would appreciate reservations by Thursday, June 18. But they assured the committee that late reservations would be accommodated.
TIME: 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
WHERE: This event will be inside in air conditioning. We will be in the Cowboy Cafe unless the group is larger than 40 – then we’ll move to the Tallgrass Arena.
MEAL: The buffet meal will include beef, turkey, 3 side dishes, roll, dessert and drinks.
ENTERTAINMENT: Ron usually shares a poem about the group in addition to sharing other cowboy poetry.
HAYRACK RIDE: There will be a hayrack ride viewing the Flint Hills. The plan is to have the dinner, cowboy poetry and then the hayrack ride last so that those who choose not to go can depart. Also, they will provide a ramp or assistance onto the hayrack or a van ride to see the Flint Hills and go to the top of Sugarloaf Hill, which has a nice view over the Kansas River Valley.
DIRECTIONS: The Lazy-T-Ranch is located 2 miles east of Highway 177 on Highway 18 (Zeandale Road). They are on the south side of the road. The turn to the Lazy T is on the last curve as the road straightens out to go on to Zeandale. Turn right – There’s an overhead sign that says Lazy T Ranch. Drive straight back about 1/3 mile. Park on the gravel area around Cowboy Cafe and Tallgrass Arena (2 red metal buildings on your left).
What a fun evening this promises to be. Ron and Chris are looking forward to having Chapter DE as their guests.
