January 2019 Letter from the CAPA President

Happy new year! I look forward to 2019 full of enthusiasm and optimism for our alumnae Panhellenic association. Delegates will reunite on Tuesday, January 8 to plan the second half of the year’s social and charity events. Following is a summary of upcoming CAPA’s events and ways you can participate to support our Panhellenic association.

  Grab a sister and join us on Wednesday, January 16 from 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm for the annual all-sorority happy hour at Shula’s II in Independence. ALL sorority women are invited to attend this event to shake off the cold and reunite with friends. For more information about the social and to RSVP and pay ($10) – go to: http://clevelandpanhellenic.org/event/2019-all-sorority-winter-happy-hour/

  The Ways and Means committee are kicking off the new year with a Super Bowl squares fundraiser. Squares can be purchased for $10 each at both January events. There are four chances to win at the end of each quarter with half of the proceeds paid to the winners. Not able to attend the delegate meeting or social but still want your chance to win? Don’t miss out, just send in $10 with your delegate to buy a square for you!

  The 2019 scholarship application is now OPEN. Applications are due on February 28, 2019. Thank you to Sarah Wojciechowski and her committee for working hard to achieve an early release. Help spread the word to your sorority members, neighbors and friends to apply for this scholarship.

  Speaking of the scholarship, have you reserved your seat for the ‘Wild About So’ROAR’ities’ scholarship luncheon on Saturday, May 18, 2019? Don’t miss out on early-bird discount and register today by mailing in the flyer or online via link: http://clevelandpanhellenic.org/event/capa-scholarship-luncheon/

  The scholarship luncheon is a time to reconnect with friends, honor our scholarship winners and strengthen our association as we raise money to support CAPA and CAPEF for future scholarships. There will be a basket raffle, 50/50, and silent auction items including local sports and Cleveland orchestra tickets. Barb Stacy, Kappa Delta National Vice President of Collegians, who oversees 166 collegiate chapters will speak and provide insight into today’s collegiate experience and how we can best support our collegians now and in the future as new alumnae. Enjoy FREE parking, FREE shuttle service to the event site AND FREE zoo admission after the luncheon. Make it a daylong event at the zoo with friends and family while supporting CAPA! 

  I invite you to participate in as many events as possible to keep the panhellenic spirit alive and well in the new year and beyond.

All the best,
Gretchen Swasey
CAPA President
