On Feb. 12, 1913, the Victoria Chapter of the Order of Eastern Star was instituted. On Feb. 12 of this year, we reached a great milestone of 100 years of service in the Town of Stettler and community.

At our January meeting, a brother and sister were installed as our top officers, Gwen Lee as Worthy Matron and William Kirtley as Worthy Patron, along with other officers. Ethel Williams, our 70-year member, remains very active. She was again installed in an office.

We are celebrating our 100th anniversary on April 28 at the Stettler Community Hall.

We will be welcoming members from many of our sister chapters in Alberta, beginning at 1 p.m. with entertainment, followed by a banquet at 5 p.m.

Tickets are $20 and can be purchased from Lillian Kirtley at 403-742-4037 or Clarice Schulz at 403-341-4351, or any member.

Come and help us celebrate.
