...the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens in giving it on all occasions their effectual support. Geo. Washington Feb. 22, 1732


Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.
Robert Kennedy, South Africa 1966.

Eastern Star Installation


Laura Chapter No. 115, Order of the Eastern Star held Installation of Officers tonight. It was a relaxed, warm atmosphere and we all had a good time. Deb is going to have a good year. You can see that she has a good group of officers. I think Worthy Patron Brian was about to do a Scottish Dance.

The Installing Officers with Deb and Brian.
When we were cleaning the back room we found some silver that was stuffed in a cardboard box. It has now been secured with the other silver for safekeeping.

Congratulations Deb and Officers, I know you will have a great year.

P.S.  I figured out that it costs me 3 cents a day to belong to Laura Chapter.  A real bargain.
