Another month has just flown by. March is in the books….let the Grand Scratches begin! The next two and a half months will be really hectic for the Supreme Staff as we have representatives spread around to the various Grands as well as completing the program reports and preparing for the Supreme Scratch in Louisville. I was just in Michigan again last weekend for the annual Easter Treat sponsored by the Grand of Ohio. This was another great event put on by a group of dedicated MOC and MOCA members. My thanks to all of them and the staff at the National Home for helping with a wonderful weekend. I did get out on the roller skates (I believe there are pictures) and made my compulsory three laps around the rink. For the safety of the children (and myself) I stopped after that … seems the insurance for the rink may not cover a kid-squashing…
More great news from the seams of the Grands….More new Pup Tents….Iowa, West Virginia, and Oregon (within the next couple of weeks) have all instituted new Pup Tents. This year continues to surprise me. My hat’s off to the Cooties in these locations for recruiting and helping to strengthen our organization. A few more Pup Tents are waiting in the seams from what I understand as well. Please keep the cards and letters coming.
The next Cootie Courier will be coming out soon. Please make sure to read and review the recommended By-Law amendments at one of your scratches before the Supreme Scratch. We need you to come informed and ready to review, discuss and make decisions on these items. Speaking of the Supreme Scratch, we intend to have some fun this year in Louisville. This should be a time for camaraderie and recognition for jobs well done by our fellow Cooties. Let’s all come together in the true spirit of Comradeship and remember we are Closer Than A Brother.
Yours in L.O.T.C.S.,
