2005 Worthy Grand Matron
Jo-Ann E. Lauderman
My Sisters and Brothers:
It is hard to believe that our Magical year went so fast. We shared so many Precious Memories and I feel so proud and happy that I was privileged to serve as your Worthy Grand Matron. What an extraordinary year we have just completed in the history of Grand Chapter. Brother Harry, the entire Grand Family and I thank you for being a special part.
Many of you participated in the events at the “Dreams of a Child” Session and others shared in our Precious Memories as we tried to show you what the world would be like if we could see it “Through the eyes of a Child.” Our Session Committee did an outstanding job making a Grand Chapter Session we will all remember. I wished upon a star and it was everything I hoped and dreamed it would be, perfect in every way. If I live to be 100 years old I will never be able to show my appreciation enough to all of you for making my dream come true.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the love and support you shared with us throughout the year and I will forever be grateful to you. I look forward to our continued friendships and joining the ranks as a proud Past Grand Matron.
God Bless you my friends. May all your dreams come true and may you always keep the child in each of you alive.
