Grand Chief Daughter Babs Van Acker installs Karen Pizzolato as Chief Daughter of Pride of Scotland Lodge #265.
On June 30, 15 new sisters were initiated into the newly formed Pride of Scotland Lodge Lodge #265 by Grand Chief Daughter Barbara Van Acker. The 15 new sisters are joined by 5 transfer sisters for a total of 20 members. PCD Pam Green was appointed Grand Deputy to the new lodge. 16 Grand Lodge Officers and Past Grand Chief Daughters joined GCD Babs to perform the Institution Ritual and celebrate the new lodge. Sisters also came from Ellen Douglas #8, Lady MacAlpine #70, Lady Craig Roy #211, Lady MacRae #218, Lady Lindsay #242, and Desert Thistle #260 to join the festivities. The entertainment was truly a family event. Trustee Nancy Strolle is very active in the Chicago Scottish Community and told us stories of her younger days with the sisters of Lady Edith Scott Lodge #121. Nancy is also a Past President of the Illinois St Andrews Society, so she gave us history of that organization and the Scottish Home, which is where the new lodge will meet. We were treated to a performance by three dancers from the Thistle and Heather Highland Dancers, who were daughters of CD Karen Pizzolato, Conductor Jamie McGregor Earls and Trustee Nancy Strolle. Brian Green, husband of GD/Secretary Pam, piped for the officer installation and also played a set for us after dinner.
