Message From President Carol Sheyer

July 23, 2018

Dear Sisters,

Thank you for the confidence you have placed in me to serve as your National President of this great order for the next two years.  It is such an honor and a privilege.

Before we left Louisville I had asked Past National President Maureen Shelton to chair the 125th Anniversary Event in 2019.  After much thought I have decided to combine the Interim Board Meeting and our 125th Anniversary Event and make it a long weekend celebration.  I feel so honored to be able to hold the Testimonial and the 125th Anniversary celebration at the same time.

The date for 125th Anniversary Celebration will begin on Thursday, October 10, 2019 to the dinner on Saturday, October 12, 2019.  The location for the Celebration will be the Dearborn Inn, 20301 Oakwood, Dearborn, MI 48124.  The Interim Board Meeting will be scheduled for Saturday, October 12, 2019.

Currently committees are working on tours and many other fun events.   More details will follow as the plans go forward.  Please mark your calendar so you will be able to join in the celebration.

All members on the National Board are aware there is a communication problem between the National Board and our sisters throughout the States.  One of my goals is to have an electronic newletter with contributions from the National Board and all the States.  Hopefully this will be a way the States will be able to share ideas.

Shortly you will be receiving material concerning the National Board’s fundraiser.  I ask for your assistance in making the fundraiser a success.

I want to thank Pat O’Connell and her Board for their two years of dedication and congratulations to the newly elected AOH and LAOH officers.

Thank you to the Kentucky Convention Committee for all their hard work and dedication in planning a successful Convention.

Also want to thank my Ohio sisters, the sisters of my Division (Margaret Judge Division #1 of Summit County) and the Kentucky sisters for all their encouragement, support and help.  And a big thank you to the Ohio Degree Team for helping with the installation on Saturday evening.

Yours in Friendship, Unity and Christian Charity,

Carol Sheyer National President
