Laureate Nu Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi
Laureate Nu Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi met Jan. 14, at the home of Anna Boudreaux with 16 members present.
The chapter welcomed guest Jackie Moix. Communication shared included a thank you note from member Carolyn Jones and an invitation to the city-wide Valentine Dinner. Treasurer Susan Childers reported receiving the Toad Suck Daze application for the chapter’s yearly chocolate-covered frozen banana booth and that she would take care of the reservation. The service committee reported on delivering items donated to residents of the Salem Place Nursing/Rehab Center. The chapter had purchased clothing and other needed items for five residents, and members had donated toiletries, snacks, socks, and other incidentals.
Members were asked to bring empty shoe boxes to donate to the center for a Valentine project. Plans were made to entertain sister chapter Laureate Alpha Delta on March 11. Suzanne Webb shared news of the adoption of a new grandchild. Before refreshments were served by Mrs. Boudreaux and co-hostesses Debbie Creswell and Jolinda Bryant, Nancy Penny updated members on changes in the availability, purchase, and use of light bulbs in conjunction with new governmental regulations.
The chapter also met on Jan. 28, at the home of Gena Bishop. Updates on planning to entertain Laureate Alpha Delta were shared by the committee, and the service committee collected shoeboxes to deliver to Salem Place. The second February meeting was changed from Lynn Tiner’s home to the home of Janie Carpenter with co-hostesses to remain Susan Salter and Sandra Schrekenhofer. After refreshments were served by Mrs. Bishop and co-hostesses Janie Carpenter and Barbara Money, a book exchange was held as the program. Members had been asked to bring two "gently-read" books from their personal libraries to exchange for two "new-to-them" books. Members played the "right-left" game with the story of a chapter meeting to complete the exchange. The next meeting will be the city-wide Valentine Dinner, which has been postponed until Feb. 18. The event to be catered by Pasta Grill will be held in the Wesley United Methodist Church fellowship hall beginning at 6:30 p.m. Instead of door prizes, chapters will be bringing donations to the Conway Animal Shelter.
