was in the organization from 1963-1999 then DF,in January 5th 2000. I was DF in absentia as I refused to be raked over the coals as I have seen the way many committees have treated others. And I know they are not always nice and some are down right rude. Some think they are gods. So I wasn't going to be drilled and grilled by a bunch of men so they could gossip to their wives or anyone else for that matter. my ex husband did a fine job in giving his version of why I left. Of course it was my fault. According to him anyway. I did pioneer in Bradford, Ontario and Montreal.
