Had a great day at Shriner Children’s – Texas as Foundation President Herbie Kay Skinner Lundquist and Vickie Tabor Hill presented a check for equipment. We were honored to witness a cornerstone laying by the Grand Lodge of Texas.

Thank you for your service….

On April 23-26, 2024  we held our quarterly Board meeting of the Daughters of the Nile Foundation.  It was good to come together to share ideas and plans, and we had a very productive few days. 

At the close of our meeting, we bid a warm farewell to three ladies who have served our Foundation with dignity and passion for our mission.  

Herbie Kay Lundquist, President, Carolyn Dobbs, Past President, and Barbara Adkins, Executive Officer and Chairman of the My Gift Program.  We extend our most sincere thanks for the dedication and talent these ladies brought to our Board.  We wish you well as you move on to ‘the next chapter’.
