June 2018


Dear Zeta Sisters

Change is in the air. I like this comment that I read recently —
"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 women educators.

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 12 to 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 your ideas.

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."

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 photos of the day click on this link:


More from the Wenatchee Rotary:
Surprise 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'.
