Hey Mississippi Units!!
Got pictures of your installation?
Please send by e-mail or mail to Angela
Kilcrease, Dept. Historian, at
firstname.lastname@example.org or to 720
Tyler Avenue, Tylertown, MS 39667. You
could see your photo here, too!
One of the perks of any Mississippi
installation is good food. Past State
Commander Lynn Rodgers of Calhoun
City shows off the scrumptious cake!
Another perk of any Mississippi
installation is meeting up with fellow
members for fun and fellowship. Betty
Tolar and PDP Phyllis Moran visit at
Post/Unit 139 in Bay St. Louis.
