PORTAGE COUNTY Eastern Star chapters host silent auction, card party

Laura Nethken Published:

More and 100 members and guests of area Eastern Star chapters gathered at the Ravenna Masonic Temple April 5 for a silent auction of more than 40 theme baskets. Lunch was followed by an afternoon of card and board games with Attack Uno being one of the most popular. Special guests included Past Worthy Grand Matron Carolyn McCahon, her husband, Tom, and three of their grandchildren; Associate Grand Patron Robert Palmer and his wife, Iris, a grand representative; Iva Johnson, Lucille Fisher, and Fran McGonigal, also grand representatives, and Sarah Paxson, deputy grand matron of the District Two chapters. The bidding began at 3 p.m. with two of the baskets going for $100 and more. The event was sponsored by the District 2 Go Committee and hosted by Ravenna Chapter No. 46, Order of the Eastern Star. More than $1,900 was raised with the proceeds from the event being used to assist Associate Grand Matron Sandy Edinston of District 22 and Associate Grand Patron Robert Palmer of District 2 with travel expenses as they proceed through the chairs to the Grand East in September when the Grand Chapter of Ohio will convene in Columbus.
