Dear Zeta Sisters
Change is in the air. I like this comment that I read
"Without change there would be no butterflies."
I don’t think we have been caterpillars, but we are spreading our wings
to be beautiful butterflies. It is graduation time. Geneva is
graduating to Zeta Past President. Installation of new officers will
bring new energy to our precious Zeta Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma—key
Our end-of year luncheon is Saturday,
June 9, at 11:30 at
the East Wenatchee newly remodeled Golf and Country Club (1600
Country Club Drive). We are offered a special menu of three choices.
Each option is $15.
(1) French dip sandwich with a small salad.
(2) Cesar salad with chicken strips on top.
(3) Cobb sandwich with a small salad.
All drink choices except water are cash at the table. Our
two scholarship recipients will be our guests.
Remember to bring your “Me” decorated bag with a small
gift inside. They will be used as table decorations as well as a fun
way of “getting” to know more about you. We will celebrate five June
birthdays. This is the year that we will honor a member with the
Margaret Weed Outreach Award.
State dues went up so our new dues will be $94 for Active
and $48 for Reserve. To change to Reserve requires inability to attend
most meetings and a vote by the Chapter.
Your Board is having a transition meeting on June
transfer materials and share ideas. Let us know if you have questions
or suggestions for the good of the chapter. There will be an Opinion
Survey at our meeting. Please fill it out and leave it so we can have
THANK YOU for being so supportive of me as your president
the past four years. It has been a pleasure working with you. You are
amazing "Wonder Women."

FROM YOUR EDITOR:
As a Rotarian here in Leavenworth I recently received a newsletter from
Wenatchee Rotary. They featured a celebration for the 90th
Birthday of your sister Carmen Bossenbrock. To view and enjoy

More from the Wenatchee Rotary:
award presented to Carmen Bossenbrock in her 90th birthday month!
In 1953 when Wenatchee Rotary member Carmen Bossenbrock began working as
a physical therapist with polio patients in Wenatchee, being the
recipient of the first-ever Rotary District 5060 "Polio Achievement
Award" decades later was never on her mind.
During last week’s meeting, just days shy of her 90th birthday, Rotary
5060 District Governor Bill Jenkin surprised Carmen with the award,
explaining that she had been nominated for other service recognitions,
but her lifetime dedication deserved special distinction. Bill traveled
from Prosser, WA, just for this purpose.
The large audience, many guests attending just to honor her (including
her care-giver and her brother) learned that in 1987, she was only the
second female inducted into the Wenatchee Rotary Club, but the club had
previously helped support her at Stanford University, where she attended
graduate school before returning to Wenatchee at the height of the polio
crisis. At one time, she was the only physical therapist in the North
Central Washington region, Jenkin said. She was then presented with a
large birthday cake, and received a standing ovation accompanied by
singing of 'Happy Birthday'.
