On January 24, 2013, Wilkes – Barre Assembly No. 45 held their official visit, welcoming Sis. Nikki Schafer, Grand Worthy Advisor, and Mrs. Helen Snedden, Supreme Deputy, into their Assembly. Other grand officers present included Nichole Rambus, Grand Standard Bearer to the Rainbow Flag; Erin O’Day, Grand Representative to Maine; and Devyn Pulliam, Grand Representative to Texas. Other visitors included Andrew Prescott, International Master Councilor of the Order of DeMolay, and Alex Temple, State Junior Councilor of Pennsylvania DeMolay. Representatives from the sponsoring OES chapter were also there to support the girls in Wilkes-Barre Assembly No. 45
The theme of the Official Visit was a “social tea.” There were lawn games played in the Assembly room, such as bean bag toss, bocce ball, darts, and croquet. The croquet ball were tapped through Rainbow colored wickets starting at red (Love) through to violet (Service.) Prizes were won and a good time was had by all. The refreshments included tea sandwiches, tea cookies, tea cakes and all kinds of tea (in fancy cups and saucers.) In total, about 35 people were present for this excellent event. Keep up the great work!
