Aleli Parlor Installs 2010-11 Officers

On August 12, 2010, Aleli Parlor installed their 2010-2011 corps of officers. President Lucy Cornelius chose the colors red, yellow, and white for her theme. The installation was also a formal event with all the officers looking lovely in their formal dresses.

The installation was conducted by members of San Juan Bautista Parlor No. 179. Judy Cain, NDGW Organist of the Order and member of San Juan Bautista Parlor, provided the musical accompaniment. Many of the members' family and friends were in attendance. It was a beautiful way to start our new year.
