Cootie Christmas was extra special as we participated in the grand opening of the MOC/MOCA House. Chaplain Alan Perkins blessed the home and PSC Don Lynch. Supreme President Lee Ann Lam and I each had the honor to speak. The ceremony was followed by a tour of the home, which is occupied by a mother and her son. Then it was off to the Christmas party for the children and a festive lunch provided by the Grand of Florida.
As we proceed further into the year I encourage each Grand Commander to reach out to their Pup Tents providing support and guidance in their efforts to have a successful year. When the Pup Tents do well so does the Grand and our organization. So “Reach Out” and make a difference.
Please monitor the program reports on the LOTCS website. Do not wait until the end of the year. Supreme provides this information to assist the Grands and Pup Tents in tracking their progress. If there appears to be a difference in what you reviewed and what you feel you submitted, please contact the program chairman to resolve issues.
Soon Supreme will be reviewing requests for Supreme Representatives to attend your conventions. Once the assignments have been completed each Grand who submitted their request will be notified who represent Supreme at their convention. Assignments take into consideration of who the Grand requested and who is available.
Should you need any assistance from Supreme please contact our Supreme Headquarters who will ensure it is coordinated with the correct officer.
Thank you for what you continue to do for the Military Order of the Cootie and the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States.
