By Sakura O., Grand Treasurer, Honorary Drill Leader & Representative to ME and MA
Hey California Rainbow! I’m Sakura, your Grand Treasurer, Honorary Drill Leader and Representative to Maine and Massachusetts! I’m here to tell you a little bit about what I do throughout the year!
As Treasurer, I have the honor to work with our wonderful GEC Treasurer, Mrs. Stern! Like the Treasurers of our local assemblies, I am entrusted with the duty of writing out receipts for the checks turned in! I prepare the receipt book for the corps by writing out the names, amounts, and dates on a receipt. Phew, my hand was tired after that! I am also honored to present the amount that we raised for the Grand Service Project at Grand Assembly! It’s such a pleasure to see the results of all the hard work that we’ve done as a state throughout the year.
As Honorary Drill Leader, I have the honor to plan our informal walk-in with the lovely Grand Drill Leader and the amazing Grand Directors. We pick the music and plan the formations and march for not only the Grand Officers, but the Choir, Observer Helpers, and Pages as well. We also plan the march for the Cavalcade of Flags at Grand Assembly, which is super fun! I also help the Grand Drill Leader out with escort!
It’s such a delight to represent the stunning states of Maine and Massachusetts! I had the opportunity to visit both Maine and Massachusetts Grand Assemblies, and it was a lovely experience. Much like our Communication Connection, Massachusetts Rainbow sends out a monthly newsletter to keep everyone up-to-date on current events, available to sign up for on their website! It’s a super amazing way to stay connected, since their Editor keeps things looking well organized and easy to read, and includes cute graphics! Maine Rainbow does an amazing job of helping those in need, participating in an annual bike-a-thon, and assisting those with MS.
Thanks so much for learning a little bit about my office and the jurisdictions I get to communicate with!
