A message from our Supreme Inspector

Dear Girls and Advisors,

As I write this I am anticipating a 16 day cruise across the Atlantic and then stopping in 6 places in Europe. I will miss being with you during this time but this is a once in a lifetime adventure for my sister and I. Therefore, this is being written two weeks earlier than usual.

The Read and Game a thon which was held this weekend was a success thanks to each and every one of you who came, donated, or sponsored our girls. Thank you. I know I had a great time sitting on the couch, reading, and staying out of trouble. Well, maybe not out of trouble, but I tried!!! I did manage to read one line of my book but I sure got a lot of talking and listening done. I hope you all had a good time as well while being with your Rainbow Sisters.

Mom Hefler and I will be attending Maine Grand Assembly over Memorial Day weekend. I haven't heard of many others than the two of us and Andrea who are planning on attending. Found out on Saturday that one more advisor and two girls are planning on going. Remember that May 1st is the deadline for reservations. Then June 1st will be the deadline for Massachusetts and New Hampshire so get your reservations in.

Have you registered with Mom Hefler for the Ritual Competition? Now is your chance to show everyone what you can do!!! Call her TODAY! See you all at Grand Representatives' Day, if not before.

Keeping your Rainbow in my heart,

Mom Lynn
