It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Eddie Daves. He was a member of MS Q. Eddie passed away over the weekend. He had been a valued member of our team for many years before retiring a few years back. Eddie will be missed by all. Please keep Eddie's family in your thoughts as they go through this difficult time.

Thanks,

PLEASE SHARE THIS WITH YOUR DISTRICT OFFICERS AND CHAPTER OFFICERS - WE CAN'T LET THIS HAPPEN!

All,

TN District Treasurer forwarded me the below email. These scams are going around again and they are just that, a scam. Don't ever transfer money from an email! I will NEVER ask you for funds from your District. If you and your Treasurer are not close, confirm any email confirmation with a phone call before taking action. Somehow they are phishing and getting the Director's name and the Treasurer or in this case the President and the District Treasurer. It is 100% scam, PLEASE do not fall for this. If you are in receipt of an email like this, report it. Again, Home Office, GWRRA nor me will ever ask you for something like this. If it doesn't feel right, trust your instinct, it probably isn't. If you have any questions please get in touch with me.

Thanks,

Anita

Pat Harbison is the better half of Gregg and Patricia Harbison, former Directors of GWRRA Mississippi District. Let's see if we can help her in recovering this precious jewel; heck, let's put it on our FaceBook page and see if we can make this go viral!!!

Last weekend we were able to attend the Florida District Rally. Bill Smith and his wife Cheryl were great hosts. Their Staff was making it look easy. There was so many things going on, that you weren't going to be bored. While at the Florida Rally we came across some new ideas to add to our rally. We had 6 of our staff there and handed out over 300 rally flyers. Terry and I were asked to judge the Mascot display. It really felt good to be involved in the processes again. I have spoken to a number of members over the years and some expressed that they were getting bored with rallies. My answer has always been for them to get involved in the process of putting on the rally. There are many volunteers, working at making their rally the best, who give of their time and efforts to execute the plans to make the rallies a success. If you haven't experienced that part of the rally I suggest that you lion us this year.

Next up is the Louisiana Rally. The Tennessee Rally is the same weekend and Gene/Georgene and Ken/Betty are attending that one. Terry and I, as well as a number of the Staff will be at the Louisiana Rally. Since we knew Eugene and this year's Louisiana Rally in a memorial for Eugene Terry and I needed to attend. We hope that may of the members attend one or the other of these rallies. One big part of GWRRA is the fellowship that comes from spending time in the company of fellow Wingers. This weekend is Easter weekend. I wish all would have the time to spend it with families. The message of peace thru sacrifice is universal. Take care of each other.

KZ and Terry.
