Preceptor Pi Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi closed out this sorority year with a luncheon at 3 Sisters Victorian Tea Room in Canton. After a delicious meal, Cindy Meitler and Susan Coulson received the Torchbearer degree during a special ritual. The officers for Sorority Year 2023-2024, President Janis Link, Vice President Susan Brown, Treasurer Karen Reif and Secretary Brenda Black, were installed. On the way back to Great Bend there was a stop in McPherson to enjoy some shopping.

Preceptor Pi’s Ways and Means projects (serving at four receptions as the “Reception Sisters”) have allowed members to be generous in multiple service projects. Some of those projects include: donations to the First Christian Church Youth Group, the Farmer’s Bank & Trust Christmas Angel Tree, personal hygiene products for Great Bend Middle School and continuing donations of fruit twice monthly for the USD 428 Fruit Filler Backpack Project. Chapter members also prepared holiday gift bags for the residents of River Bend and Brookdale and prepared a meal for Core Community.  

At every meeting a member offered a program. Through this past year, members learned about a variety of things, from personality types to paper dolls; from the Hutchinson Correctional Facility to the history of Great Bend to hidden fire hazards; from weather trivia to George Washington.

Several of the women in the Chapter have been Beta Sigma Phi members for over 50 years and many have been together in the Chapter for over 25 years. So, of course, there is time for friendship, food and fun at meetings and socials. Members traveled to Lyons for breakfast, enjoyed a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, a Christmas dinner catered by Delgado’s and Pie Day at Perkins.
