Hello Brothers and Sisters!
I hope this message finds you doing well and enjoying the fall temperatures.
I am having a wonderful time traveling with our WGM Wanda Ryan along with members of the Grand Family. I have been visiting different parts of Kansas and discovering so many things. I have also had the privilege of meeting so many Star members and making new friends.
I recently had the opportunity to travel with Wanda to Coats, Kansas (population 83). This is where our WGM presented Mildred Eubank with her 75 year pin on October 14, 2017. Wanda and I followed Robert Ott, PGP to Mildred's home where family and friends were waiting for our arrival.
Mildred was nervous about a visit from the Worthy Grand Matron! She had been reading her ritual, "just in case" she was asked any questions prior to the pin presentation! She was absolutely adorable!
After Wanda presented the 75 year pin, Mildred asked that her sister (also a PGM) pin her. (Her sister will receive her 75 year pin - next year)
Then Mildred preceded to tell everyone how she was still involved in the farming operation, introducing her two grandsons who actually do the planting and harvesting. And yes, they do plant cotton! She then visited with members of her grand family and shared some of her Eastern Star adventures.
There are no words to describe how meaningful this afternoon was for everyone who attended. Mildred is absolutely adorable and full of spunk.
I am so blessed to be traveling with Wanda, taking pictures of the Grand Family. However, my most special pictures are of the members who share their kindness and love. Just like Mildred. Thank you for the memories.
Star Love to all of you.
