Deputy Matron Visits Chapter

The official visit of Laura Ball Smith, district deputy grand matron, to Fallen Leaf Chapter No. 90, O.E.S., at the chapter’s recent meeting, was of special interest since she is a past worthy matron of the chapter.

There was a potluck supper in the banquet room of the Masonic Hall, which had been specially decorated and the visitor was formally welcomed at the chapter meeting which followed.

She was presented with a gift from the chapter by Gladys Veerkamp, worthy matron, who was assisted in the presentation by a choral group …

Following the meeting, dessert was served. Visitors were in attendance from distant points and from other chapters in this district.

The committee on arrangements had Inez Veerkamp as chairman, with Helen Pierroz, Ethel Harper, Francis Romberg, Mae Veerkamp, Bert Pierroz and Frank K. Romberg.
