Regional Education Day Was a Great Success

It was a great Day.  We had 6 different Temples represented and 38 registered for the all-day event. PSQ, Vesta Marshall, Vice-Chairman of the Supreme Membership and PR Committee lead the day.  Assisting her were PQ Marlene MacKay, a member of the Supreme Membership and PR Committee and Yvonne Parker, the Membership Chairman at Omar Temple #111.  Our own members, Carol Estell and Donna Kopp received certification as Mentors that day.  I believe that everyone left the day feeling ready to keep our spark and love for Daughters of the Nile going and growing.  Our Buck-I-Nutz Unit performed a skit about setting off the “Fireworks” and being enthusiastic about being a member of Daughters of the Nile, making “Fight Song” as our song…as the song lyrics say,

“…I might only have one match

But I can make an explosion

This is my fight song

Take back my life song

Prove I’m all right song

My power’s turned on…”

I wish to sincerely thank my Committee – Pr. Tirzah, Vicky Kutschbach; Pr. Chaplain, Donna Kopp; Pr. Nydia, Carol Estell – for all their help planning and working to bring this day to reality.  The day couldn’t have happened without them.


Sparkles of Nile Love,

First, I would like to congratulate everyone for Thebes being the number one in the nation in donations of fleece blankets!! Thanks all for your hard work. So far this year we have donated over 300 items. 110 being the fleece blankets. Over 700 hours of time and over $1,000.00 in donations. Please keep up the great work. Mary Jo has purchased over 90 yards of fleece for August 5th Sewing Session. I could use some help with lunch that day. Thanks again and have a great summer!

Hello Ladies,

I am hoping that you are enjoying the beginning of summertime fun. There are so many things to do in Ohio and in our beautiful America. Your vacation time gives you the rest and relaxation we all need. I also hope that you will be looking forward to the fun times that our Daughters of the Nile offers in the fall season.

We have a Games Party planned for the third week in November 2015. Normally, it would be held the second week in November but our Supreme Queen visits us the second week in November. Games Party date is November 18 – 10:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M. Lunch will be served, card games, baskets for our Silent Auction. Be thinking of what you would like to use as your Theme Basket. Bake Sale with lots of yummy goodies and fellowship too. SAVE THE DATE!

More news to come in our next Newsletter. Have a wonderful, relaxing summer!!

Summer News from Queen Pat

Our summer is finally underway. I hope it is a fun and safe time for all of you.

We had Ceremonial on June 3rd and welcomed four new Princesses to Thebes Temple: Marilyn Heine, Kathy Suchey, Susan Aldridge, and Carol Bell. Please make them welcome when you see them next.

We had an exciting and fun time in Albuquerque at the Soaring on Wings of Friendship Supreme Session. Princess Tirzah – Vicky, Princess Zora – Marcia, Past Queen – Janet, Past Queen – Terry, and brothers Cal and Bill traveled with us.

The Memorial Service was an emotional time for us all. I placed a rose for Past Queen Agnes Wolfe.

Sunday evening was installation for the new Supreme Officers. Supreme Queen Sharon, in a beautiful pink gown, was piped in by the Shrine Bagpipers. She is a fun and energetic lady and we know she will have a busy year.

We received the new password. Come to session, so you can hear it also.

The 2015 – 2016 queens are Roses of Sharon and our emblem is the Hummingbird. We will welcome Supreme Queen Sharon on Tuesday, November 10th when she visits Thebes Temple at 2 p.m. with a reception following.

We are selling subs again this year. Deadline for orders is September 20th. We will make them Tuesday, October 6th. Session will be October 7th. They are still $5.00. Call Pat at 614-581-1961 or Vicky at 216-973-6676 to place your order.

Please, do not forget Friday, July 31st is our Chicken Noodle Dinner. Tickets are included and are also available at the door.

Have a safe summer and remember, “Trust in The Lord, but lock your car.”

Nile Love,

Queen Pat
