Letter from Chapter President.
Pioneers from Minnesota, Iowa, and South Dakota I would like to
introduce myself. My name is Pat Jeukens.
In the past I have been a Metro Council president and a Chapter

food. Maybe we can help further.
The Beeping Easter Egg Hunt is being canceled at
this time and we will let you know if it changes.
Beep Baseball also is on hold until further notice,
updates to everyone once I know more.
I look forward to trying to meet as many of you as
I can at your gatherings if I can do so safely.
Please know I hope we all can stay safe and healthy during this time of
Please reach out to me if you have any questions or projects we can
support in 2020.
A big thank you to Kathy Hanson for her service as our president the
last couple of years.
I hope you can have a good year and stay healthy.
Thank you to all who are serving as officers in
chapter and council this year.
