Phi Beta Psi March Meeting

Phi Beta Psi Sorority, Theta Omega Chapter, recently conducted a combination business and March Madness social meeting at the Community Foundation of Jackson County in Seymour.

President Joan Trimpe presided over the business meeting. Spirit club points were given to those wearing attire with sports emblems or spring fashions. The red team had 794 points, while the white team had 748.

Profits from the February Hooray for Hollywood dinner and dance in the amount of $13,450 will be sent to the sorority’s national project.

Trimpe will take care of the scholarship, offered by the sorority, with the county schools after spring break. The Indiana state project, supported by dues and donations, is a scholarship for a student of medical technology.

Signup sheets were passed for the April 29 and 30 Hen and Chicks food booth, a new project.

Members also signed up for door prizes, Chinese auction gifts and kitchen duty at the spring bingo, featuring Longaberger baskets, pottery, gift cards and Thirty-One bags, to be conducted April 19 at the American Legion Annex.

Tickets are $15 with doors opening at 6 p.m. and bingo starting at 7 p.m. Taco salads, sandwiches, cookies and drinks will be available. Proceeds will go to cancer research, the sorority’s national project. Tickets are available from all members. You must be 18 to participate.

The next business meeting will be April 18 at the American Legion Annex for the bingo setup and election of officers. The officers nomination committee is Dana Byrkett and Taryn Rockey.

Homemade ham salad and chicken salad sandwiches, chips, dips, veggies and ice cream sundaes were furnished by hostesses Beckie Anderson and Stephanee Roberts. Door prizes were won by Janet Cooper, Kristy Gabbard and Mary Reynolds.

Jackie Hill served as the auctioneer for the annual spirit club auction among members. The proceeds help defray expenses for the June party losing team.

Prospective names were voted on and will be invited guests at the early April social hosted by Rachel Rust and Kathleen Johnson.
