When Grandma Became President of the Rebekahs

Today is the day of my grandmother Beatrice Mary Victoria Jordan’s birth in Quebec City. In wanting to mark the day I also realized it is also the 60th anniversary (one day late) of her becoming the International President of the Rebekahs at their Annual Session in Miami, Florida.

Beatrice had worked hard in the organization serving in the past as president of the Quebec Assembly and later as the Treasurer and the Vice President of the International branch.

Her year as President had her traveling all over Canada, the States, to Denmark and Cuba. From the looks of things, it was a busy year.
