Aleli Parlor Installs 2011-12 Officers

On August 11, 2011, Aleli Parlor installed their 2011-2012 corps of officers. President Barbara Thomas chose the theme "Over the Rainbow" with the colors of the rainbow rounding out her theme.  President Barbara reminded all of us, "Life is really beautiful and it depends on our outlook and how we shape it up to make things better for ourselves and the people around us."

Over the next year, the Parlor will be working toward implementing Grand President Marilynn Rodrigues' special project for the year--donations toward an education grant for returning veterans. 

The installation was conducted by members of Gilroy Parlor No. 312. Aleli Parlor member Bonnie Rasmussen served as Chairman.  Jean Koehl, PGP, Gilroy Parlor No. 312 served as Installing Officer.  Our Marshal was Grand Marshal Sharon Logan, San Jose Parlor No. 81.  Judy Cain, NDGW Organist of the Order and member of San Juan Bautista Parlor, provided the musical accompaniment.  The following members were installed:
  • Barbara Thomas, President

and the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true."
