Robyn Moellenberg and Larry Smith were installed as the presiding officers of Greenwood Chapter Order of Eastern Star for 2014 during a Nov. 12 open installation ceremony.
Serving as the installing officer was Karen Schwab, a past matron of Greenwood.  Assisting were Marsha Kujawa, worthy matron of Lillian Chapter, Montpelier; Karen Ruscoe, worthy matron of Triune Chapter, Waterville; and Mark Murphy, a past patron of Yondota Chapter, Toledo.
The antique gold gowns worn by the women had scalloped necklines and intricate beadwork at the waist. The men wore tuxedo attire with antique gold bow ties.
The theme for the year is “Your Key to the Great American Road Trip”; colors are red, yellow, and green representing traffic lights; flower is the wildflowers growing along roadsides, and the scripture is I Corinthians 13:7.
The podium was decorated with fabric depicting sights one sees while driving along Route 66, and the OES Bible given to Moellenberg’s grandmother when she became an Eastern Star.
The chapter presented floral arrangements to the 2013 worthy matron, Denise Zephier, as she went out of office and to Moellenberg as she was installed. Zephier and William Mandlebaum, 2013 worthy patron, received monetary chapter gifts for their year of service.
Throughout the year Moellenberg said she would have the chapter visiting all 50 states. The road trip began with some history of Bowling Green.
The reception was served by the men’s Century Club to 44 members and visitors. Food items were provided by the officers to represent various states such as New York cheesecake, Georgia pecan pie, Texas sheet cake, Hawaiian pineapple, Ohio buckeyes, and more. Each dining table held a road map topped with a strip of black ribbon representing our roadways.  Each ribbon held one or two automobiles and trees were scattered across the map.
