If you may or may not have heard I sent out an Email thru the Supreme as Grand Commander to ALL Grand Commanders throughout the Supreme to “Pass the Hat around”, Well I’m happy to inform the Grand so far the GRAND of VIRGINA has sent $500.00 the Oregon Department Headquarters. Cheryl Campos is setting up a spreadsheet to track ALL funds the are coming from otherPuptents and Grands. AgainI ask that each Puptent in THIS Grand to do at a Min. $25.00 if your puptent can swing it more ia ALWAYS welcomed. I was at puptent #6 (Carry Ons)  Yesterday and I know that they are going to be higher than the requested $25.00….  I will send you the email that was sent by the Virgina Grand Commander, VERY nice and I was told that the Challenge from the Grand of Virgina to the Eastern States was to “Match or Beat US” what HELL of a FAMILY WE HAVE…        Hold you Elections before the C of A See YOU in McMinnville    L.O.T.C.S.      Dan ” Ricochet” Ackerman  Grand Commander
