President's Message

January 2018

Dear Sisters of Tent 22,

It is an honor that you have placed confidence in me to lead you this year.   Thanks go to Carmen for a successful year.  Yours will be hard footsteps to follow!

I know that several applications have been handed out, we look forward to growth in 2018.

The best way to stay involved in any organization is to stay informed.  Ours is no different.  Monthly we publish our tent's Bugle - on the weekend prior to the 3rd Saturday.  The minutes of each tent meeting also contain up to date information. General Orders are published three times a year on both the National and Department (State) level.  The Department just came out; the National should come out in February.  Our Tent 22 and National both have Facebook pages for updates.  New Tent officers have been updated on this website.  Department officers can be found in the GO #2 that just came out.

This year the tent will continue to work on a historical location to mark.  A lot of research and planning goes into deciding where to place a marker.  We look forward to participating in activities at Wilson's Creek.  Several members will go to Department convention in Macon, Missouri on June 2.  Details on ordering T-shirts for the convention will be in GO #3.  It appears to be another fun year!

In Fraternity, Charity, and Loyalty,

Kitty Crider, President
