President's Message

Hi Sisters,

Greetings and Happy New Years! Best wishes for our chapter and each of our members for a fantastic 2016!

The snow flakes poured down on Sunday in Blairsville. It was a nice surprise and of course my son was so excited! He was imaging making snow men, sledding down our road and snowball fights. There is nothing like the first snow of the season.

I am also excited thinking of the "first times" we will experience as a chapter. Maybe we will initiate first time members. Maybe this Spring will be our first of many high school scholarship awards. Maybe it will be the first time you serve our chapter at the district or chapter level. With the state convention so close in Athens, maybe it will be your first time attending a state level event. There are so many good things ahead...join me....let's go!!!

Time to put those unwanted gifts to a good cause. Instead of "re-gifting" bring your items to the Jan Alpha Delta Kappa meeting. Members can bid to buy your item for a discounted price and all proceeds will go to the scholarship fund. It's a get to declutter, your sister gets what she has always wanted at a discounted price and Beta Upsilon increases their scholarship funds. Let the bidding begin.....

This is a state-wide focus that purposes to volunteer our time instead of our checkbooks only.
