August 2021                     

Dear Sisters,

Our luncheon was delightful. Our thanks to Cathy Reasor who made the arrangements with the Country Club. Teri decorated with red roses, yellow daisies and white baby’s breath. The four arrangements and their cute little buckets went to four members with the right numbers. Someone did not take theirs so yours truly is still enjoying it at home. The Yakima chapter yearbook was reviewed by members present and all felt that their short format would serve us well. Denise Perkins and Betty Carrick will work with me to input our data in the format the Yakima president, Mary Rennie, a computer expert, has developed.  Sherry won the raffle…some dessert plates. Ken Kohnhorst was our guest and surprised us with wonderful news. He and Charlotte’s children wish to endow a yearly $2,000 scholarship to a deserving young woman desiring to become an educator! He and Kriss Crilly, our scholarship chairman, will work on the application and qualifications. This scholarship will continue as long as he is able to endow it.

Your executive board will meet at my home, 1421 Copper Loop in East Wenatchee on August 10…time will be determined by the weather forecast. If it is cool enough we will be meeting outside as with the new masking mandates, I know we would all feel more comfortable outdoors. With that in mind, we will have our September 14 meeting at 4:00 in Washington Park. So far, we have permission to meet in the church - masked if you are not vaccinated, without if you are vaccinated and choose to go with a “naked face”! Outside for the early fall would make most of us more comfortable though I think. And unfortunately should the new delta variant become more prevalent and serious, we may be back to online Zoom meetings though I hope not.

There is a possibility that our area may be split with us joining the Yakima valley group and Coulee Dam joining the Spokane group. As a result, we are not planning the area workshop that we postponed in 2020. I will have news of our planned calendar for 2021-2022 and other decisions from the board meeting in our September newsletter.

Hoping that our heat lets up and smoke blows away…hard to spend a summer inside after all the time we have done that in the last year. Enjoy!

Rosa Eilert, President








Since we won’t be seeing each until September, I wanted to share these 6 sun safety
habits that I found in the Consumer Reports-On Health Publication.

 The sunscreen expert at Consumer Reports tells us that it is a common myth that if you’ve
 already spent several decades in the sun (yes, decades), there’s no benefit to shielding your
skin from the effects of its harmful ultraviolet rays now.  But the truth is, it’s never too late to take care of your skin.  Practicing good sun safety habits every day at any age can help prevent additional damage, making you less likely to develop skin cancer……and wrinkles.  
She suggests following these tips for a healthier time outdoors…this summer
and throughout the year.


Wishing you a wonderful August and looking forward to seeing you at our first
Delta Kappa Gamma meeting, September 14.
