MOTHERS AND DAUGHTERS OF CATHOLIC DAUGHTERS. Court Our Lady of Fatima, #1518 Orient-Polo’s four delegates attending the April 19-21, 2013 state convention in Brookings April 19-21, were joined by two other former Polo daughters. The mother-daughter sextet included, inset, Cheryl Schaefers and daughter Mo, Polo; left to right above, JoAnn Schaefers, 60-year member, Polo, and daughter Camille Dunnick, Sioux Falls; National CDA Regent, Anne Nelson, Linthicum, Md.; Laree Giovannettone, Sioux Falls, and Marietta Wieseler, 45-year member, Polo.
