Happy New Year delegates! With the end of one year and the beginning of another comes a time to reflect on what we’ve accomplished, and look ahead towards what is still to come.
This past fall we were able to raise $$$ dollars for through our Mixed Bags to benefit our organization. The delegates and their alumnae chapters did a great job spreading the word about this fundraiser. We officially raised more money than last year.
At the November meeting, we collected items for Next Step. We filled a van full of donations and collected additional gift-cards and money to benefit this organization. I am so proud to be associated with such philanthropic and kind-hearted women.
On the horizon in 2017, we have a lot of exciting events to look forward to. We have our Panhellenic Happy Hour coming up at the end of January. I encourage you to spread the word and bring a sister who hasn’t yet had the chance to experience a Panhellenic event.
In February, we the opportunity to volunteer together as a united sisterhood at the Greater Cleveland Food Bank. I encourage you to spread the word and register today. By coming together to give back, we can maximize the impact on those in need around us.
When spring rolls around, look forward to the annual Scholarship Luncheon. The May date will bring collegiate and alumnae together to enjoy good food, fun, and conversation. Look for more exciting details to come.
I hope you have had a great start to your new year and I wish you the best as 2017 continues.
I look forward to seeing you at our upcoming events.
