The last inspection for the district was held May 21 in Bowling Green with Deputy Grand Matron Kathy Baltz, North Baltimore, serving as inspecting officer.
Worthy Matron Denise Zephier opened with Lakota theme information on the sacred pipe. Distinguished guests were greeted with quotes.
Courtney Boswell, Bowling Green, received the degrees of the order during the initiation ceremony.
Zephier closed the meeting with a quote from the book "Iyeska," written by Charles Trimble, uncle of her deceased husband. It told of his 1972 vision quest that took place just prior to his serving as executive director of the National Congress of American Indians in Washington, D.C.
Following tradition at the last inspection, Baltz was "roasted" by the district worthy matrons.
The evening concluded with a reception served by the district men's Century Club to 51 members and guests. The dining room tables were decorated with wicker baskets filled with flowers, greenery, feathers, and Indian pictures.
The next stated meeting will be June 4.
