 Greetings to all my Sisters and Brothers:

            I want to thank the chapter for the Get Well card I received when I had my foot surgery.   I really have been under the weather not only because of the surgery but because I fell the Saturday before my surgery, Aug 28th.  After x-rays, the doctor told me that I had a bad contusion under my left knee cap and would need to wear a knee brace for up to 2 months.  The only problem with trying to rest that leg is that I needed it to get around with after my surgery.   So it hasn’t healed as quickly as I had hoped it would. 

            I am so very proud of our chapter for hosting and participating in the School of Instruction held at the Cayce Lodge on August 27th.  The food was delicious and decorations added a special touch to the meal.

            Thanks to everyone who participated in our annual garage sale.   I apologize to the chapter for not making the set-up on Friday and the garage sale on Saturday, Sept. 11th.    However, it proved, once again how strong our chapter is and how everyone pulls together to see activities through when a crisis comes up.  Again, thank you so much to the faithful group that put together and carried off a very successful garage sale!

            One project I wanted us to think about supporting during my year was the “Dang-It Dolls.”   Our chapter once again came through and voted to send a very generous amount to this project.   It is a cause that touches a great many of us personally and I hope that we will also support them by coming and helping out on the 2nd Saturday of each month.

         We have decided to re-start our social gatherings.  Our first one for the year will be on September 23 at Longhorn’s over on Harbison Blvd. at 7:00.  Every member, the officers and their traveling partners are invited to the social. 


Chapter dues are $20.00/Year and are due and payable on or before April 1st of each chapter year. This is your official notice.

Jane is now receiving dues for the year 2010-2011.

Please bring to a chapter meeting (preferable) or send to:

                        School of Instruction

                Cayce Chapter 260 Order of the Eastern Star held District 22’s annual School of Instruction on August 27, 2010.  A big thank you goes out to the members of District 22 who help set up and clean up.

                A delicious meal of chicken strips, green beans, potato salad, a roll, and a fruit cup was served.  We, also, want to thank the West Columbia Assembly #36 International Order of the Rainbow for Girls for serving the meal.  They did an excellent job!

                Last of all, a big thank you goes to our members who participated in the meeting and initiation.                  We really appreciate all those that attended as District 22 had one of the largest groups represented at the school.


Reminder:  Initiation Sept. 21
