Preceptor Pi Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi started the new sorority year in September by selecting community service projects and making plans for Reception Sisters.
The chapter’s Reception Sisters assist with receptions for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays and other celebrations to raise funds for the chapter’s various service projects. Anyone wishing more information about this project may contact ways and means chair Judy Krebaum, 620-793-6836.
Susan Coulson reported that Preceptor Pi donated $339 to the Makinna Ann Hope Foundation and $173 to Kans for Kids at the end of the 2015-16 sorority season in June. This year, the chapter will donate to the Makinna Ann Hope Foundation and the Dream Center.
The chapter will continue donating bags of apples and oranges for the First United Methodist Church’s Weekend Backpack Project providing fruit to elementary school students. Coinciding with Veterans Day in November, the chapter will make a donation to the Quilts of Valor project.
The chapter’s social events have included a trip to the Hillsboro Craft Fair on Sept. 1,7 and a Weekend Movie Matinee on Oct. 2. Plans are being made for the chapter’s Thanksgiving Dinner set for Nov. 19.
Programs so far this year have been “This Month in History and Cultural Diversity” in September, including holidays and holy days of various faith traditions; Credit/Debit Card Theft; a tour of the Kansas Oil and Gas Museum; and “Halloween Fun Facts.”
