Diamond Rebekah Lodge (Install Officers - 14 March 1973)

Miss Mayme Hallingstad of Whitehall, district deputy of the Rebekah Lodge, installed officers of Diamond Rebekah Lodge No. 64 at the March 14 meeting. Miss Hallingstad was assisted in the installation by three Whitehall Lodge members who accompanied her to Neillsville.

Elected officers installed are as follows: Mildred Rodman, vice grand; Elsie Scherer, financial secretary; Margaret Milton, recording secretary; Ruth Maegdefessel, treasurer; Agnes Cummings, warden.

Appointed officers include the following: Elsie Gress, chaplain; Ruth Maegdefessel, musician; Ruth Kline, right supporter of the noble grand; Beulah Fischer right supporter of the vice grand; Nettie Philpott, inner guardian.

Mrs. Fischer acted as pro tem in the absence of the noble grand. Since a number of members were not present, Mrs. Cummings was deputized to install those officers not able to attend the Wednesday evening meeting, as well as any officers to be appointed or elected at a later date.

A lunch was served following the meeting. The lodge’s next meeting is to be held March 28.
