Deputy with Worthy Matrons in their Grand Chapter Dresses


The “USO Starshine Salute to the Troops” was a wonderful and time.  The cast and crew did a great job with the sets, costumes, and skits, but just as importantly, we had a lot of fun volunteering for a worthy cause.  The event earned over $800 for our charities.  We also sent five care packages to soldiers in Afghanistan for the holidays.  All of them were family or friends of our OES statewide family.




Worthy Matron, Pat Stiltner, Inspecting Officer, Grand Conductress, Sue Simpson, Past Grand Matron, Wroena Dusthimer, and District #12 Deputy, Jan Cosby.


Worthy Patron, Steve Meryo P.P., New Members, Carolyn Carmen, Brenda Harden, Larry Harden and Worthy Matron, Pat Stiltner
