Missouri VFW “Cooties” Homecoming – 2014

    Jefferson City Truman Hotel was infested with Cooties from October 10-12, 2014. Military Order of the Cootie members from throughout the state met for fellowship, business, membership initiation, and just plain fun!! Our Friday golf tour was rudely interrupted by rain all day…so we just warmed up for the evening and following morning activities!! On Saturday, MO Grand Scratch was held with all MO Pup Tents represented. (Pup Tent 1, 5, 9, 12, 14, 15, 17 and 56). Pup Tent 12 members were on hand to do their degree work – 25 new cooties were welcomed into the Grand during these degree activities including an exciting wreck for our new species pediculi…..The weekend ended with the Cootie Grand Commander and Grand President Homecoming banquet and toasts….really good food and roasting activities were enjoyed by most – except perhaps the Grand Commander, Olin Parks, or the Grand President, Diana Ahearn. Plans are being made for our April Cootie Convention in Jefferson City – hope to see all our friends there!!
