Dear Zeta Wonder Women
IT'S APPLE BLOSSOM TIME IN OUR VALLEY. What a beautiful sight!
The May 8 mixer will be an opinion poll seeking information to help with
2017-2018 DKG planning. Participate in the raffle--potted flowers. Look
through a scrapbook or two. A volunteer to maintain the scrapbook would
be appreciated. If you could use a paper bag or some bling to add to
your "ME" bag, please feel welcome to take some supplies. These (with a
small gift inside that is important to you) will be used at our June
luncheon at 11:30 at the Wenatchee Country Club on Saturday, June 9.
RSVP with payment to Zeta for early bird $15 by June 1; otherwise $20.
We will keep a list of early bird commitments--so payment can be paid on
Didn’t we have a wonderful time learning about and actually doing flower
arranging! I learned how to make my arrangements look so much better.
Teri has done such a wonderful job with interesting programs.
SLIDE SHOW OF MEETING HERE
The Aplha State Convention was very good. Our International guest
speaker was Eija Litsa Sokka-Meaney, a Finnish educator. Hopefully more
will put state meetings on their “To Do” list.
It was so gratifying to see all the items that you brought for the
purses for the homeless and/or abused women Purse Project. We filled
eight purses and took two to the State Convention and six to our own
Haven of Hope. Thank you for being so generous. The receipent group in
Olympia gave a wonderful report on what they are doing in the South

Roberts at the Celebration of Life
Business included the raising of the state portion of our dues by $18.00
for active members and $1.50 for reserve members. (This is just $1.50 a
month—less than a cup of coffee.) This will help keep our state
organization solvent. State dues have not been raised since 1995.
We received Certificates of Recognition for our Effective Newsletter, a
DKG Certified Chapter Website, and for increased 2017 membership.
Scholarship winners have been determined. I’ll let the Scholarship
Committee make their announcement.
Remember General Mills product coupons are still being collected at each
Eighteen supported the casino project in April. Next one is May 19 (not
12—Manson parade day and Mothers Day on Sunday).
We will be voting on new members (yeah). They will be initiated in
September for the new year.
Dinner will be a nod to the Mexican holiday, Cinque De Mayo. It is still
at the low cost of $10. Thank you Food Committee.
We are lucky to have Wonder Woman Darci Christoferson, Blossom Festival
Administrator, and the Royal Court at our May 8 meeting, The Royal Court
which includes Wonder Women, Queen Gretta Wiersma, Princess Sophie
Castillo, and Princess Jessica Murray will talk about all that goes into
being selected and then serving as the 2018 Wenatchee Valley
Ambassadors. Darci will share the behind the scenes "stuff" in preparing
and putting on the biggest festival in the state of Washington. Wonder

one thing at a time, therefore Parliamentary procedure is that business
is taken up one item at a time."
