On Saturday night, March 28, 2020 several Palestine members and friends got together for a virtual meeting. We used internet video technology to spend some time chatting, and even played an OES trivia game. Are you interested in joining in on the next session? Fill out the form below and we will contact you.
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.
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.
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
