Chapter Preceptor Gamma Theta met at the home of Sharon Baker, with Barbara Porter as co-hostess for its April 10 meeting. It was announced that the state convention will be held October 5-7 at the Country Club Plaza Marriott in Kansas City. The theme this year will be World Travel.
Our chapter had gone to see the play “Robin Hood in OZ” at the Excelsior Springs Community Theatre. The play certainly was different than what was expected. That evening, the program given was by Licha Kelley-King who works for Access II. Access II assists disabled individuals in finding homes and providing them the resources to stay and maintain their home. Some of the things Access II provides are informational referrals, accessible buildings, assistive technology and peer counseling. Ms. King also explained that Section Q is to ask who is living in a nursing home if they want to return home every 90 days. The program was most interesting.
Our April 19 meeting was our annual Founder’s Day Dinner at The 19th Hole. The dinner was delicious, and the program was put on by Carolyn Miller along with “Nostalgia Vintage Apparel” from Sedalia. Ms. Miller used mannequins to display her clothing and accessories from the 1800’s through the 1970’s. She was so much fun to listen to and she wears these fashions to church and other events. At this dinner we announced that Gamma Theta Chapter’s Girl of the Year was Sharea Kirk. Beta Sigma Phi City Council also announced that the recipient of Beta Sigma Phi’s Scholarship was Kyle Cox.
Our first meeting in May was held at the home of Genelle Kiser, with Glenda Owen as the co-hostess. We had installation of officers: Nancy Coleman, president; Sandra Williams, vice president; Jeanna Schmidt, recording secretary; Sharon Baker, treasurer; Doris Claypole, corresponding secretary; Barbara Porter, extension officer; and Sharea Kirk, city council representative.
Our final meeting before summer was held at the home of Sandra Williams, with Sharon Baker and Margie Bowman as co-hostess. We celebrated our Chapter Anniversary with a delicious barbeque of hamburgers and all of the trimmings.
Michelle Zwiers, a community outreach specialist from Missouri Valley Community Action Agency, requested a donation for school supplies. Our chapter donated $25 for this purpose.
It was reported that Beta Sigma Phi’s City Council met and elected Pat Letzig as president; Jackie Zilliox as secretary and Sharea Kirk as treasurer.
Our program was a quiz on our own chapter as well as Beta Sigma Phi in general. It sure was a lot of fun recalling old memories.
We all look forward to a wonderful summer and to meeting back again in August. We hope you all have a wonderful summer. too.
