Welcome Toledo Chapter

We are glad to welcome our sisters and brothers from Toledo Chapter as they merged with us. We held a lovely ceremony for them on February 20 with PGP Ron Keller presiding. We know it is a change for them and wasn’t an easy decision, but we hope they feel welcomed and jump right in and take part.

Consideration of Accepting a Merging Chapter

Sisters and brothers, we have received notification that an OES chapter would like to merge with ours. Please plan to attend our December 5 meeting to learn more and vote on this matter. Chapter members must be present to vote.

Kids Book Drive

Our book drive will continue through December 5. Bring a new or gently used book suitable for an elementary-aged child to our chapter meeting that night. These books will be donated to Springfield Local School libraries. Reach Out and Read says that reading aloud to children:

  • Builds motivation, curiosity and memory
  • Helps children cope during times of stress or anxiety
  • Take children to places and times they have never been – enlarging and enhancing their worlds
  • Creates a positive association with books and reading

Thank you for your participation!
