Just Between Us Deers
I am honored to represent the Deers and will continue with spirit of what the Deers represent – Kindness, Charity, Sympathy and the Desire to do Good. I will strive to be the best President possible and with the help of my Officers and Committee Chairmen I know this will be a successful, fun year!
The New Officers were installed on Wednesday, April 1st for the 2015/16 year. The room was decorated in an Easter theme. There were several Deers and their guests in attendance. A delicious ham luncheon with all the trimmings was served. Thanks to the many Deers who provided the meal.
I would like to take this time to thank Joan Grimsley for coordinating the 2015-16 Installation. There are a lot of details that have to be worked out and she did a wonderful job. I’d also like to thank my friend Robin Urbanovit for agreeing to be my Mistress of Ceremonies. I heard she said a lot of great things about me. . I do not know what I would do without her. In addition, thanks to Bill Woodall, Linda Lee and Sal Quijano for acting as Installing Officers. I’d like to especially thank Bill Woodall and Linda Lee as they filled in at the last minute. Two of my installing officers were not able to attend because of illnesses. I cannot forget to mention the Deer Marshalls, Melody Sprague and Ruben Gomez. They kept it moving!
Our past President was not able to attend our installation because she was in the hospital. We also did not have a Secretary to install. With this in mind, Deer Ladies please consider taking this position. It is a lot of fun and very easy. Our (dear) Deer Judy Serrato is filling in for a month or so and I know that she is unable to do this full time.
Our May 6th luncheon will be Cinco de Mayo themed so I imagine the colors and decorations will be festive and beautiful. The meeting starts at Noon. In addition, we will be celebrating all the May birthdays: Bill Bailey, Evelyn Arnold, Edie Elfmont and Jan Smart.
There are plans for the annual Elks Mother’s Day Luncheon to be held on Mother’s Day, May 10th. Grady Sain has asked that the Deers help with the food, etc.
In addition, there is a trip being planned for Laughlin. More information to follow via Mary Gesquiere.
I am looking forward to the monthly meetings and being with my Deer family.
Marsha Meistrell-Duarte, Deers President
