What a ride! I have been traveling with our WGM along with other grand officers over the past week visiting Ulysses, Wichita, Clearwater, Liberty, and Greensburg! I have never been in that part of state and found it absolutely beautiful! I was fascinated by the miles of wheat fields, and grain elevators along with the number of semi-trucks. I had to stop in Dodge City to take pictures of the huge cattle lots while reading about the weight and number of cattle butchered daily. Today, I visited Weir, Kansas. It was really nice sharing a meal with all of the members, celebrating their 50-year member, along with honoring their District Aide.
I have arrived home for the evening and will be working to download and begin the editing process of hundreds of pictures. HOWEVER, it is open for members! Yes, the Kansas map showing the location of the Traveling Gavels! OK, the little bouncy things are not gavels - however, I promise when I have a little more time - I will design some "gavels" for the map! Members are having fun with the Traveling Gavels. While in Weir today, Pittsburg brought six visiting members and left with the yellow gavel!
