For years marketing experts have placed us into neat categories of age, education, career, life-style, housing, marital status, number of children, geo- graphic location, and on and on. The purpose of these demographic studies is not only to help companies in the packaging and promotion of products, it also goes deeper to influencing manage- ment in the direction of research and the development of most products that we use.
Directors of non-profit organizations have the results of surveys at their disposal that tell them at which age, level of career and/or marriage, etc., women will donate their time and efforts. We know that the increase of women in the work force has had a definite effect upon volunteerism. While Iiaud the work of the researchers, and I believe they make a real contribu- tion, I have some thoughts of my own about volunteers, particularly AOO alumnae.
There's no doubt that more and more of our collegians are graduating with a broader range of skills and more advanced degrees than ever before. The opportunities for career advancement and positions at management levels

Perspectives
increase yearly. Yes, one would con- clude that this woman because of her professional duties would have less time to give to the volunteer field. True, but at the same time, from my own exper- ience, when I was a "bottom of the ladder" medical researcher, I didn't dare suggest that I take time off to do volunteer projects. Today, companies recognize employees who are active volunteers, and when a woman becomes a part of management, typically she is expected to be familiar with the altruistic community. The alumna with both home and career to manage some- times feels that she is on a treadmill; she finds it difficult to see how AOO" service can enrich her life or how she can even fit it in!
Regardless of whether our main re- sponsibilities are inside or outside the home (or a combination), and no matter what age level or marital status, we all need diverse interests in our lives. We also need the reward of satisfaction in knowing that we are giving a little back to Alpha Omicron Pi for the opportuni- ties of friendships and development that have been afforded us. The phrase, "We always find time to do what we want to do," is old and worn, but it's true.
I'd like to expand my definition of a volunteer. It doesn't always happen that upon moving into a community, an alumna finds an active alumnae chapter that meets on a night convenient to her schedule and that is comprised of women in her age and societal stage. So to me, an AOFI volunteer on the local level is not only one who participates in alumnae chapter activities or is an adviser to a collegiate chapter, but she
can also be one who takes the time to contact other AOIls in her area and arrange for them to get together.
There are basically two sets of circumstances. One is that there is no AOn organization, so the alumna volunteer must check her TO DRAGMA directory (published in every fall issue) for a Key Alum listing the contact person for those in the com- munity. If none is named, then she looks up the Regional Extension Officer to whom she writes for a list of alums living there. The REO will also send her information about contacting and organizing.
The other possibility is that the alumnae chapter meets at a time impossible for either the career woman or the family oriented one. The volun- teer should make contact with the Alumnae President (TO DRAGMA directory again), join the group, and work with their geographic printout to locate those who might wish a different format for getting together, such as breakfast or lunch meetings for the business crowd, daytimes while children are in school for some, or Sunday brunches for others. A splinter group like this can join the official alumnae chapter for its opening fall meeting, celebrate Founders' Day together, and attend the end of the season spring bash.
My thoughts about volunteerism have no base in scientific fact, but there's something really special about doing things with your AOII sisters, and I'm not at all convinced that you need to be in any certain category. Youreally could start making contacts today.

Welcome to AOII, Elon College!
The crowded room actually shook from the enthusiastic cheers coming from within. The 45 new AOII colony members at Elon College are excited, and plan to let the entire campus know about it!
Located near Greensboro, N.C., Elon College is a private institution of about 3,000 students. With a tremendous increase of students interested in a strong Greek system, Elon College requested AOII to join their already exemplary system.
Colonization festivities were hosted Oct. 8-9 in the Student Center, the main gathering place for students. An informational meeting was held Wednesday evening from 7:00-9:00 p.m., with a turnout of over 75 students. AOII Vice President/Development Melanie Doyle, Chapter Consultant Colleen Emery, Regional Director Sandy Reeder, Colony Adviser Jane Vondy and Public Relations Coordi- nator Debbie Miller spoke on the various aspects of AOII and the future plans for the Elon College colony. A rush team from the University of T ennessee did an outstanding job on their rush skit, and lead all in AOII songs. Following the presentation, rushees, the UT rush team and AOII regional and international officers enjoyed refreshments.
The next day was filled with individual conferences with each rushee. Assisting in interviews were Bobbe Chilcote & Deborah Grimm, two AOII alumnae from U. of Cal/San Diego. Late that afternoon, David Atkins, Elon Greek Advisor and Rexanne Ayers, Elon Pan- hellenic President, issued bids to 45 happy future colony members.
Thursday evening a colony ceremony was conducted by Melanie Doyle, Vice President/Development, followed by a catered reception. AOIls from Duke University assisted as sponsors for the new colony members.
Among the new colony's advisers include Colony Adviser Jane Vondy, Rush Adviser Susan Hopkins, Chapter Relations Adviser Elizabeth W alker- Parker, Financial Adviser Janet Donahue, and Scholarship Adviser Jennifer Smith. The new Corporation Board President is Ann Cornwall and the Elon Faculty Adviser is Karen Thompson.

Rho Beta Installed atV.C.U
by Genevieve E. Russell
Alpha Omicron Pi has been firmly planted at Virginia Commonwealth University. On September 27th, the 35 members of Rho Beta placed their signa- tures on their charter. Located in Rich- mond, Virginia Commonwealth University, an urban campus, has a rapidly growing Greek system. A0I1 is the third national sorority at V.C.U.
The long awaited weekend began with a Rose Inspiration on Friday at Westminster Cantebury, the home of Alice Turner who had just celebrated her 60th year as an A0II. Ms. Turner's granddaughter, Robinnette, is a member of Rho Beta. Many of the all important alumnae attended as well as several members of Chi Beta at the University of Virginia. A rain storm delayed International President Peg Crawford at a Chicago airport but she arrived and excited us all about our weekend and about AOIT.
On Saturday morning, initiation began at Holy Comforter Episcopal Church. Rho Beta members were honored to have Peg Crawford initiate them. Mrs. Crawford was assisted by alumnae from various chapters and members of Chi Beta.
After initiation, Mrs. Crawford proceeded with the installation of the chapter, the officers and the pledging of their 13 member Alpha member pledge class.
Charter members and pledges proudly wore their new pins as they, their parents and friends attended the

After dinner, Rho Beta President Tracy Shields opened presents to the chapter. Tracy also received her presi- dent's ring from Peg Crawford. Then the chapter sang a few AOI1 songs for family and friends.
Rho Beta was colonized on October
11, 1985. It has been guided by Ruth Shorter, colony advisor and the Richmond alumnae.
Already this year, Rho Beta's members have participated in V.C.U.'s first annual Greek W eek, and ha ve had a successful Rush. Rho Beta's members wish to thank everyone involved in their special weekend. Rho Beta members and pledges work hard everyday to make AOO the most respected sorority on V.C.U.'s campus.

Excitement was in the air at West Virginia University when members of the soon-to-be installed Sigma Alpha chapter of Alpha Omicron Pi met AOII International President Peg Crawford at the Morgantown Airport on Friday afternoon, August 22, 1986.
Tomorrow would be a big day but Friday night was set aside for quiet thinking and reflecting on what sister-1 hood really is. It had been a hectic past year meeting requirements for installa- tion but it was time, and the Mountain- eers were ready for Roses!
Peg Crawford officiated Saturday afternoon at the installation of the 10th sorority on the campus of WVU and was assisted by Nancy Bowers, regional vice president, and Jan Slagowski, regional director.
But the ceremonies would not have been complete without a Rose Banquet held at a downtown restaurant. Sigma Alpha chapter was presented with an assortment of gifts and Sigma Alpha Chapter President Vicki Berger was presented with her president's ring and gavel.
The newly installed Sigma Alpha chapter has much to thank Maria Hall, chapter adviser and Lisa Bragg, alumnae adviser, for their guidance over the past year and their preparation for this special weekend.
During the past year the Greek system at WVU felt the presence of AOII on campus. AOII tied for 1st place in the Sigma Chi Derby Days and took 2nd place in the campus Air Band Competition. Robert Palmer's video "Addicted to Love" never looked so good! The sisters pulled off The Great Panda Pay-off, the first successful philanthropy fund-raiser, by kidnapping and ransoming the

AOII Achieves Another First!
Sue Lewis
AOfl Executive Director
Shelly Johns
Shelley Johns, a member of Kappa Alpha chapter at Indiana State Univer- sity, has recently received several scholastic awards and academic honors.
At the annual ISU Honor's Day, Shelley received a $1,000 Pulliam Scholarship through the Department of Journalism. This is the highest award for Journalism majors at the university who are actively engaged in newspaper journalism and show promise of becoming outstanding journalists.
Shelley also received two other scholarships this semester—one through Student Life and Panhellenic at ISU and one through Kappa Alpha chapter— the Nola E. Williams Scholarship.
After being named to Who's Who Among Students in American Univer- sities and Colleges, Shelley also received recognition as one of ISU's eleven Outstanding Juniors.
But Shelley does more than just study. She has also held several leader- ship roles in various campus activities and in Alpha Omicron Pi. Currently she is Chapter Relations Chairperson in charge of Programming, Sisterhood and Morale and will serve as a Rush Counselor this fall.
by Debbie Miller, Public Relations Coordinator
AOn is the only National Panhellenic Conference group whose Executive Director has earned the prestigious Certified Association Executive desig- nation.
Sue Lewis is one of only 35 association executives nationwide this year to achieve this certification, and one of only eight ever in the State of Tennessee. She is also now classified in the top 4% of association chief executive officers in the nation, out of 12,000. This impres- sive accomplishment is due to her ser- vice and talents in the areas of associa- tion management, community service and leadership.
A rigorous 8 hour, 55 page exam is mandatory to gain the certification. This exam is given by the American Society of Association Executives, and covers 15 areas pertaining to associa- tion management. These include: convention planning, budget/finance, membership recruitment and retention, legal aspects, long range planning, public relations, accreditation and cer- tification.
To even qualify to take the test there are strict requirements and prerequisites. Each applicant must submit a Personal Data Form, which documents his/her background in national, regional and state leadership and community service. Another requirement is that each appli- cant has at least five years experience in association management.
Sue proved herself eligible to take the exam because of her outstanding achieve- ments and community involvement. Aside from AOII, she has always taken numerous leadership roles in other worthwhile endeavors.
When asked why this goal was so important to her, Sue mentions A O n with her reason. "This was anothergoal I had for AOII to demonstrate our leader- ship in association professionalism," she said.
Congratulations from all AOLIs every- where should go out to our own Execu- tive Director. Roses to you, Sue Lewis, CAE!
Lisa Hull, Sigma Phi, California State University-Northridge, was crowned Miss Panorama City-Sepulveda for 1986-87 by her big sister, Lisa Dunn.

Scholarship Winner Thanks Foundation
Dear Barbara:
Two years ago, the Philanthropic Foundation awarded me a special scholarship (in honor of Mary Dee Drummond) to help me attain my Master's Degree in Gerontology. Now that I have this degree, I wanted to thank those people who have helped me attain this goal. Since I do not have the addresses of the members of the Philanthropic Committee, would you please pass my words and thanks to these women.
Let me briefly tell you what I will be doing now that I have my degree. First, I am taking a much needed break and traveling throughout Great Britain and France. Once I return to California, I will resettle in San Francisco where I will look for a position working with or on the behalf of older adults. Ideally, I would like to teach Gerontology courses at one of the nearby Universities. My long term goals at this point are vague, but I may continue my education and work towards a Ph.D in an age related field.
The past 2 years have been an in- credible learning experience for me. Gerontology is a new and exciting field and I feel so fortunate to be an active participant in making it a worthwhile and legitimate field. There is so much that is needed for older men and es- pecially women (e.g., legislation con- cerning Medicare and Social Security). I can not thank you and the entire committee enough for helping me to become a Gerontologist.
If there is anything Ican do to help the Foundation in the future, please feel free to contact me at the above address.
Thank you again for your support. Fraternally,
Carol J. Whitlatch
The AOn Foundation would like to talk with you.

Mary Lee Drummond Grant Recipient Receives Degree
In Gerontology
Carol J. Whitlatch recently received her Master's Degree in Gerontology at use.
Being able to attain her degree was due to a Grant from the AOn Founda- tion with funds contributed in the memory of Mary Lee Drummond, past International President.
After traveling throughout Great Britain and France, Carol will return to California and settle in San Francisco. She will teach Gerontology courses at a local University and seek a position working with or on behalf of older adults.
Boston Alumnae Chapter Hosts Reception to Honor AOI1 Research Grant Recipient: Dr.Paula S. Hochman
On October 19, 1986 the Boston Alumnae Chapter and Delta colony, Tufts, University, held a reception to honor the 1986 AOII Research Grant recipient, Dr. Paula S. Hochman at the Tufts University Medford Campus.
Mrs. Connie C. Blanchard announced that all area AOFI alumnae, college faculty, and Delta colony members were in attendance for the afternoon reception.
Dr. Hochman is currently researching the cellular and molecular mechanisms by which such cell populations synergize to carry out the selective recognition process. The results will be useful in manipulating the immune system when faulty recognition events occur, as in rheumatoid arthritis.

Peggy Noe, Kappa Omega, U. of Kentucky has been elected President of U.K.'s Greek Activities Steering Com- mittee. She is in charge of all fraterni- ties and sororities on campus. She is the first woman elected to this position.
Babette Bonson, Kappa Alpha, Indiana State U., was featured in the 1986-87 Sweethearts of Sigma Chi Calendar.
Shaping Tomorrow's Leaders
Angie Collier, Kappa Omega, Univer- sity of Kentucky senior, is a leader with promise. This was proven by her suc- cessful completion of the pilot program of The LeaderShape Institute, an inten- sive six-day educational experience sponsored by the Alpha Tau Omega Foundation.
Alpha Tau Omega is a men's National Fraternity dedicated to the development of our nation's leaders. The Leader- Shape Institute is ATIl's creative re- sponse to society's demand for change and is A Til's fulfillment of its promise to young people and their personal development.
The purpose of the Institute is to sig- nificantly improve a young person's knowledge of, and ability to demonstrate, basic leadership skills in daily life.
The program, designed by prominent education and leadership consultants was structured around a non-traditional process which deals with self-awareness and self-assessment, interpersonal communication, group dynamics and decision-making, ethics and power, social awareness, and responsible service.
This program —two week-long sessions —was the first of many to be offered by the ATfl LeaderShape Institute. The pilot programs were held at the University of Illinois Conference Center near Champaign, 111., and attended by 98 young students from colleges and universities nationwide.

LeaderShape Institute attendees included men selected from ATfl chapter nominations and one woman from each of 26 National Sororities. All attendees have demonstrated campus and/or community leadership, a desire to reach higher levels of personal achievement, and a willingness to help others do the same.
Participants enhanced their leader- ship skills through cluster group activi- ties, awareness and interpersonal skill modules, and case presentations. In addition, a guest panel of leaders in a variety of professions shared their leadership experiences and counseled with the young people.
Angie is past treasurer of Kappa Omega, and currently serves as philan- thropic chairman.

Local Convention Chairmen, Judy Bourassa and Pincy Polese.
Director's Credits
Local Convention Chairmen Judy
Bourassa (Mrs. Cliff) and Pincy (Rita) Polese (Mrs. Jim) made thier debut at New York's Wagner College. During this period, Judy portrayed Theta Pi's Treasurer, while Pincy was correspond- ing secretary.
After graduation, Judy and Pincy joined different road companies. Judy went on to become a portfolio analysis on Wall Street. Later in her career she moved to Phoenix where she landed a major role as Economic Research Coordinator for a local investment firm. Tiring of her long running engagement, Judy retired to travel and to devote time to the scouts, the PTA and the Phoenix Alumnae Chapter. Judy's directorial talents were honed while President of the Phoenix Alum Chapter. She brought that company into the spotlight at previous Conventions when it won outstanding Alum Chapter awards. Standing in the wings at this production, cheering her on, are her biggest fans, children Matthew (13) and Megan (2). Judy also finds time to work as Secretary/Treasurer in husband Cliff's computer consulting business.
Fate also brought Pincy to Phoenix. Here she took a number of bit parts while husband, Jim, attended law school. Retiring early to devote time to children Jenni, 12 and Dan, 9, Pincy became active in local Alpha Omicron Pi theater. Portraying historian, secretary, vice president and president, she renewed her Alpha Omicron Pi ties and learned the Alum ropes. While throwing herself wholeheartedly into the 1987 Production, Pincy is grateful the presentation is not a musical one because after two years of piano lessons she has not gotten rave reviews at the keyboard. When not working the circuit, Pincy stays in shape walking and pumping iron. Leisure time is spent traveling, reading and painting.

In the past, the more inexpensive the items were, the more likely they were to be sold. Items that have sold well at past conventions are pencils, buttons, note- pads, stickers, magnets, balloons, rose candy, etc., that have AOII cleverly displayed on them. Perhaps your chapter will create a new best-seller to add to the list.
To enter your chapter's items for sale in The Sultan's Bazaar:
L Send a sample of your boutique item (limit of two, preferably one) to Boutique Chairperson.
2. Tag the sample with its selling price, your chapter's name and location. Indicate how many of these items you plan to sell. Please have only one price for each item. (No special rates, such as "1 for 50c/2 for 75c")
3. Send TWO self-addressed, stamped envelopes with the sample. One will be returned to acknowledge the ac- ceptance or rejection of your sam-

The summer had more than just fun and sun in store for the Alpha Deltas at the University of Alabama!
All of our hard work paid offduring rush. We pledged quota once again—59 wonderful pledges! Thanks, Katy Weldon, rush chairman, for doing such a terrific job!
Fall at the University of Alabama could only mean one thing—football! And whatbetterwaytoraisemoneyfor the Arthritis Foundation than with a football tournament? Fraternities and other organizations around campus were invited to enter. Philanthropy chairperson Lisa Phifer did a great job— the participants as well as the spectators enjoyed the annual AOII Football Tournament!
The remainder of the semester was filled with activities for the Alpha Deltas! The pledges had their pledge retreat and Big Sis-Little Sis match-up. Everyone has already started thinking of prospects for the crush party and formal, reported Sandra Chung.
ALPHA GAMMA Washington State U.
The Alpha Gamma chapter exper- ienced a very successful fall rush this year. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs greeted rushees on first party day, then invited them in to chat with the rest of the girls, who were dressed in Mickey and Minnie Mouse outfits. A peppy collection of songs set to Disney tunes served as a very entertaining day for everyone involved. "The Wonderful World of AOII" brought us fantastic returns and resulted in a pledge class of 32 great girls.
Alpha Gamma continued to shine at TKS Waterfollies on Sept. 20. Tina Blau, a sophomore, passed down her crown as reigning TK2 Waterfollies Queen after a year of fun times. Our basketball and volleyball teams took first place and the Alpha Gammas walked away with the : trophy for first place overall.
After an exciting homecoming with Sigma Chi,we are looking forward to Greek Week in January. Teamed up with Phi Kappa Tau,we should be able to make this all-Greek philanthropy a great success, reported Jodi Newton.
ALPHA SIGMA U. of Oregon
Alpha Sigma chapter tied for third place with Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority in University of Oregon's Greek Week competitions. Sara Bancroft's song, "Thirteen", which she wrote about the chapter, won the musical award in the variety show. AOII then teamed up with Chi Psi fraternity and Alpha Delta Pi sorority to build the Bloom County canoe float that won second place.
In addition, the chapter hosted a Fashion Show and Brunch. This fund- raiser for the Arthritis Foundation in- cluded Alpha Sigmas modeling the latest fashions and performing the song, "Big Spender".
In September we enjoyed a relaxing rush retreat at the beach. Upon returning, we held two weeks of strenuous rush practice. This insured us of a successful rush, reported Shari Silverman.
BETA LAMBDA Ilinois W esleyan U .
Beta Lambda chapter had a great summer and is off to a very successful
year! Last June, we hosted the Region Y Leadership conference. We were proud to show other AOIIs our beautiful home and campus.Atthesametime,alotwas achieved at business meetings and great get-togethers with sisters from all over the Midwest. In August, we had a ter- rific time at our Annual Dad's Day Cleanup. W e renovated our library, painted some rooms, and yes, even had fun! We were back to school in Septem- : ber for a busy but wonderful Pre-Rush week led by our Rush Chairman, Regina Romic. We were pleased to find that a Chapter Consultant, Lynne McMullin, would be joining us for this very special week of hard work and sisterhood.
Our hard work paid off in our four wonderful Rush parties held from September 19 to 26. One of our most memorable parties was our Tour Party themed "It's An AOII World." Rushees were greeted by Beta Lambdasdressed in Mickey Mouse shirts, red walking shorts, and yes, to top it off, Mickey Mouse ears.Eachroominthehouse was decorated to resemble an amusement ride from Disney World—it was truly a pleasure to show off our wonderful Chapter House in this memorable way! After our three other parties, we finally saw that our hard work had paid off. Bid Day gave us wonderful pledges that we were so proud to call our sisters. That evening, in fact, Beta Lambda was the hit of the campus as we proudly serenaded the fraternities and' intro- duced our newest AOIIs.
After a long but successful Formal Rush, we're now getting back into the swing of things and getting ready for upcoming events on campus. It's Beta Lambda's 30th birthday^and soon, all of Illinois W esleyan will know about it! We also geared up for our annual fall informal, Pineapple Party, that our pledges along with Pledge Trainer, Bonnie Waldorf,and Party Chair, Angie Glascock, organized and hosted. O n campus, we hosted Chapel services and participated in the Student Senate carnival with the notorious "AOII-a- gram" booth.

The Beta Phi chapter had a busy and exciting fall with football games,


serenade practices and greek exchanges. We initiated our formal pledge class of 28, and took eight super new pledges through open rush. We are so enthusiastic about them and how they already love and feel comfortable here
with us.
Rush is one event all Beta Phis looked
forward to participatingin this year. We revamped our parties and skits for formal rush. Our themes included Mickey Mouse and his friends, Gilligan's island, and a night in Paris. Each party committee worked hard to make this rush Beta Phi's best yet.
This year is off to a wonderful start and should stay that way for the Beta Phis, reported Betty Cunningham.
CHI ALPHA
U. of California Davis
The Chi Alpha highlight of the summer was the Rush Retreat. High points of the retreat were receiving rush clothes, perfecting rush songs, learning a skit donated by Iota Sigma chapter, making paper roses, and a late night dip in the pool. When the weekend was over, the retreat seemed much too short, and everyone looked forward to Pre-Rush week.
Soon- summer was over and it was time for Pre-Rush. Everyday was spent reviewing lawn coordination and brushing up on conversation skills. By the time the week was over, a very strong chapter bond had developed in the house.
Rush week began with house tours. The next day was AOII rates day, which featured a game letting rushees learn many facts about AOII. The following day was AOIIs on Safari. This day featured a skit and a slide show. The fourth day was new, Up Up and Away with AOII. The fifth and last day was Preference. The ceremony was beautiful.
For the fall we planned pledge presents, a pledge surprise, the pledge retreat, and a pledge social, a semi- formal dance. Other events planned were a raf ting exchange, a Halloween exchange, and Derby Days.
All these activities and others give us a chance to do things together as sisters, and help us to keep the chapter bond found during Pre-Rush strong, all year long, reported Brenda Erwin.
CHI BETA
U. of Virginia
ThebignewsfromChiBetaisthatwe finally have a house of our very own! After a long, intense search, we pur-
chased a house that is just perf ect for us. It was completely renovated over the summer and was ready for us to move into this September. Needless to say, this was the highlight of Chi Beta's semester. Besides obtaining a house, we also initiated a full pledge class of 30 girls after a fun-filled Inspiration Week. The spring semester for the AOIIs at U.V.A. was filled with mixers, cookouts, and an always fun formal. This was a great semester for Chi Beta, but next semester will be even better in our new house, reported Mary Schroeder.

The fall 1986 pledge class of Chi Delta has got it!! The collegians surprised them on a cold and cloudy fall day by traveling to Left Hand Canyon outside of Boulder for an all day barbeque. We then followed with formal pledging on September 13. We introduced our new sisters to the social scene at CU through our first date party in September. Our pedges are also making another trip together for pledge retreat to the Antler Hotel in Colorado Springs.
Our alums were very busy over the summer. They redecorated our informal living room and remodeled the foyer. We honored them at our annual Founders' Day brunch in November, held in Denver.
Chi Delta parents were able to get in on the action during our Dad's weekend, in early November. Dad's and their AOIIs traveled to a CU football game, followed by a brunch Sunday morning, reported Jeannie Oldham.
CHI LAMBDA U. of Evansville
Chi Lambda chapter ended out the 1985-86 school year in a spectacular way. On April 19 we held two of the big events of the spring: little "39" bike race and Rose formal.
In the bike race we had two teams. We're proud to announce that team one finished first and team two came in third.. Congratulations, girls!
Our annual Rose formal was held the same evening of the bike race. It was beautiful. All the sisters and their dates came out in their best attire for a dinner and awards at Evansville Country Club. This was followed by an after-party at the Old Courthouse in downtown Evansville. Everyone seemed to thoroughly enjoy the evening.
A sunny April.5 was the setting for our philanthropic project, "Run for the Roses". This was our second year to
hold the 5K run. This year Welborn Hospital co-sponsored the event. A l l proceeds went to the AOII Foundation.
In intramurals Chi Lambda once again shone by coming in second in overall competition., reported Martha Christiansen.

We captured first place in the Trivial Pursuit Contest and firstplace intheAir Band Competition for our very original and spectacular performance to the song "Amadeus" by Falco.
Our Parents' Day/Alumnae Picnic was great. It was a beautifulsunny day with family, friends, alumnae sisters and a lot of good' food.
We held a fundraiser in early May which was very successful. Also on that day, some sisters participated in the 12 h o u r Zeta Beta T au f r a t e r n i t y Volleyball Marathon which benefited Muscular Dystrophy.
The American Heart Association sponsored a Jail Bail fundraiser in which . fictitious Keystone Cops "arrested" town dignitaries and Greeks for the cause. To be released, bail had to be raised by collecting a specified amount of money. Yvette Cerrada was happily "arrested" for the cause as sisters made
bail.
Inspiration Week was May 12-May
18. The initiation ceremony took place ontheeveningofMay18.Pledge Educa- tor Holly Walter did a great job of preparing our new initiates to be future leaders. This week also consisted of our "Senior Sendoff" party.
Ideas for fall rush popped up at the end of the semester and a summer rush retreat was held at the home of Alyssa Stakgold in August, reported Janice Frankel.
DELTA OMEGA Murray State U .
New and exciting things are going on at Murray State University. In August, the Delta Omega chapter moved into their first house! Not only the girls who live in the house, but the entire chapter lent a hand and a hammer to get the house in order for rush. However, a great deal of credit goes to our local alumnae who: put in a lot of time and energy. Their continual support and dedication is appreciated and greatly valued.

Since rush, Delta Omega has been very busy. O u r spirit and enthusiasm was put to the test during Lambda Chi Alpha W atermelon Bust. With the theme "AOn Classic—Red, White and You" the AOIIs rocked and rolled to such classics as "Rock Around the Clock" and "IWanna Hold Your Hand." The more rugged AOIIs battled the wilds of Buffalo River near Linden, Tenn., on September 19 during the annual AOII canoe trip. We had a great time and didn't even let a little rain dampen our fun!
Currently, Delta Omega is busy making plans for upcoming events, such as Parents' Day, and our Mr. MSU contest held each year to raise money for the Arthritis Foundation.

IOTA SIGMA Iowa State U.
Iota Sigmas were thrilled to be back at Iowa State University this fall. After a summer of corresponding with our sisters, it was nice to be able to see them and receive a warm hug.
Work week began on August 15. It was filled with hard work, lots offun, and the anticipation of what rush was to bring.
Rush arrived and was over before we knew it. With the hard work of our Rush Chairman Sheree Fantz, Assistant Rush Julie Atwood, and the rest of the Iota Sigma chapter, we pledged quota of 31.
Iota Sigma has been working ex- tremely hard to raise money for Arthritis Reserach. So far this semester we have had two fundraisers. The first was a bottle auction with our Homecoming partners, Phi Delta Theta. This auction raised $750. The second fundraiser was a car wash where we raised a total of $125.
To get into the Homecoming spirit we built a lawn display with the Phi Delts. This is an old tradition at Iowa State that is being brought back. W e were pleased to see all of the alums back for Homecoming, reported Kari Peters.
IOTA UPSILON COLONY
U. of South Carolina Spartanburg
When the Iota Upsilon colony at the University of South Carolina at Spartanburg got back to school this August, we were ready to release the energy that had been building all summer. We were alllooking forward to having the best formal rush week possible.
Rush began with an information party. This party was a question and answer session and a time to become familiar with the pledges. The second party was entitled,"AOII World Tour." Kim Clusterman, Administrative Vice- President, designed our touristy-looking panda T-shirts. The back of the shirt stated; Alpha Omicron Pi, World Tour, Rush Week, 1986.
At the end of preference, Iota Upsilon colony had seventeen of the best pledges.
The Mothers' Club, headed by Mom Clusterman, held its first meeting in September. If you think you can get ideas and minds generating, wait until youseetheprosinaction!Wearelook- ing forward to great things from our Mothers Club.
With the sisters and mothers in the spotlight, the alumnae were not about to be left out. A special thanks to the alumnae for the bulletin boards, helping with preference,and just being there for us.
September was a busy month for our colony with formal rush ending, C.O.B. beginning, the Student Leadership Re- treat to Atlanta, and our annual bonfire with Pi Kappa Phi and Lambda Chi Alpha;
We also enjoyed the activities of the fall. There were monthly chapter rela- tion events such as Set-Up-Your-Sister dates, trips out to dinner or a movie, and a sleeppver forallthe sisters.

We would like each of you to think of us and to wish us well, reported Sherry Orduna.
KAPPA OMEGA U. of Kentucky
The Kappa Omega chapter has reached new heights this fall semester. We had an enormously successful fall rush, pledging 50 fantastic girls.
Although every member of Kappa Omega is special, we have two members and one alumna that have excelled in activities outside of AOII. Mendy Cumberledge, who graduated from U.K. last year proudly represented the state of Kentucky in the Miss America pageant held in September. Peggy Noe was elected president of the University of Kentucky's Greek Activity Steering Committee. Also, Susan Meshako was chosen to be the Kappa Alpha Rose of the KA fraternity at U.K.
Kappa Omega is continually improving and growing stronger. As we begin this fifth year on U.K.'s campus we only have high aspirations for the goals we can achieve for Alpha Omicron Pi, reported Melissa Fryrear.
KAPPA OMICRON Rhodes College
Thanks to beautiful spring weather, Kappa Omicron's 2nd annual Balloon Lift for arthritis was an uplifting exper- ience for all. Hundreds of dollars were raised for arthritis research, and the winning balloon floated all the way to south Mississippi!
A free car wash for Rhodes faculty and seniors allowed many dirty cars to show their true colors just in time for Rhodes Rites of Spring. Lisa McClelland's family recipe for barbeque sauce certainly came in handy as we won second place in the Rites of Spring campus-wide barbeque contest. We finished ahead of all other sororities on campus and missed first by just one point!
Spring afforded Kappa Omicron op- portunities for service to others as well as recreation. Jennifer Thomas, Beth
Blake, Debbie Martin, and Ricci Hellman all walked ten miles in the March of Dimes walkathon in Memphis. Beth also participated as a link in Hands Across America. KO's intramural soft- ball team surpassed itself this year with its best record in several seasons.

Second semester was both tiring and exciting! One of the most exciting events was learning that we had the highest GPA of all Greeks on Western's campus in the fall semester. We also won the all-Greek sing with our revised version of "Footloose" during W estern's Greek Week. We kept ourselves busy by serving at a benefit for the Arthritis Foundation, helping to fingerprint kids at one of the local malls, and selling coupons for a fundraiser. The semester ended on a high note with a combined sisterhood get-together and scholarship banquet. Many awards were given including: The Sister-of-the-Year award to Annette Martz, The Suite Award to Becky Reed, and awards to Krys Pesta, A n n Farrand, Debbie Sprietzer, and Beth Muelbuerger for attaining the highest GPA in their class level, reported Becky Reed.

Lambda Betas were seen this past summer in Germany, Hawaii, at Expo
'86, and camping in a big group in the local mountains (fun!), among other places. And while we were running around, a change took place. Our chapter house underwent some major renovations. Walls were torn down in the Chapter Room to accomodate the ever-growing numbers at Lambda Beta. The house was in great shape for rush.
Congratulations to Barbara Rinehart who, at Region VIH's Leadership Con- ference this year, was elected Regional Rush Adviser. We think Barbara, Lambda Beta's Rush Adviser, will do a great job!

Spring quarter for the AOIIs of the Lambda Chichapter proved to be both an exciting and profitable quarter. We began the quarter with two large philan- thropic projects. We had a Pepsi jail and our annual Arthritis Telethon. We were very proud to present the Arthritis Foundation with $3,000.
In the way of competitions, the AOIIs were quite successful. During the annual Greek Week here at LaGrange, we won the Greek games. We also won the step-singing competition during the May Day activities which the college holds every year. We also won the scholarship cup forwinterquarter. This cup is given to the sorority which has the highest overall G.P.A. The AOIIs have won this cup for eighteen consecutive quarters.

LAMBDA IOTA
U. of California San Diego
Spring quarter was busy and funfor AOIIs at the University of California at San Diego. We started off the quarter initiating three great new initiates. During this same period of time, we were informally rushing, and we added five terrific pledges!
Our Greek Week was full of Greek spirit. The week started off with the "Unolympics" which is where the sororities and fraternities compete in athletic games like volleyball, canoeing and tug-o-war. The Lambda Iotas took first place in the tug-o-war! The high-
light of Greek Week was the talent show; the AOIIs were cheered on as they sang a rap! O n Friday UCSD had its annual Sun God Festival with strong support from the Greeks. Each organiza- tion operated food and game booths. Lambda Iota had a pie throwing booth which was a favorite with the crowd! Rounding out the week was a Greek Row Party. Despite the lack of housing, the Greeks at UCSD have turned this event into a "true block party" with false house fronts built by each chapter on campus.
In May we had our annual Alum Col- legiate Luncheon. We enjoyed spending a sunny afternoon with our alums. Councilwoman, Judy Howard McCarty, Beta Phi, '59, was our guest speaker! During the course of the afternoon, we ceremoniously watched our seniors go alum.
The most exciting event of the year was the annual Rose Ball. It was held at the Kona Kai Club overlooking the gorgeous San Diego Bay.
Our philanthropy chair, Peggy Shank, has been doing an outstanding job, working with the pledges and help- ing them organize their philanthropic project which was making beautiful quilted picture frames. She also started a new fundraiser, the phantom tea, which was very successf ul!
LAMBDA SIGMA U. of Georgia
AOIIs from the University of Georgia traveled far and wide this summer— several explored the nooks and crannies of Austria, relaxed on the French Riviera, tooled along the waterways of Venice and discovered native Fiji in the South Pacific. But we all gathered again in Athens for two tiring but exciting weeks of Rush. For one week we pasted, cut, taped, painted, sang, discussed and danced, but hardly slept a wink! On the Friday of that week, rushees arrived at our doorstep. With red dresses swishing, we burst through the door singing, "I'm an AOII rose, AOII do or die!"
With over 1300 girls going through Rush this year, our first parties averaged about 75 girls each. It kept each of us busy to say the least. This year's rush was really different for us, and all the changes paid off as we reached quota with 60 fantastic pledges! Kelly McCloud, pledge trainer, had spent her summer devising the new pledge program, complete with speakers, activities, outings, etc. It's going to be a full quarter for them!
We were all anxious for the year to get underway. This is the year of the Red Rose ball, an event that takes place only

once every four years. This quarter also brought us a Halloween date night, socials, Homecoming with Fiji, an alumnae lunch,a pledge retreatand Tau Kappa Epsilon's "Yell Like Hell." W e've started the school year in an upswing; with Rush behind us and new pledges ahead of us, we find ourselves looking to Sorority of the Year and the honorable JWH Cup. Look out, here we come, reported Diane Adams.

Nu Betas at the University of Mis- sissippi started the fall semester with a bang! After an excellent Rush work- shop we were rewarded with 46 wonderful pledges, and we've been busy ever since Bid Day introducing them to the wonderful world of AOII!
Afterwe returned to schoolinAugust we had an initiation ceremony for eight of our second-semester pledges. Itwas a special ceremony and it created a special mood for the weeks of hard work ahead of us.
Our first philanthropicproject of the
school year, a Kidnap Supper, took place this fall. Fraternity and sorority presi- dents were "kidnapped" and held at our house until each fraternity and sorority presented a check to have their president "released". All "ransom money" was donated to the North Misr sissippi Retardation Center.
On November 8, Nu Betas traveled down the Mississippi River on the "Showboat" for our riverboat fall formal. Everyone enjoyed the first riverboat formal we've had in several years, reported Deanna Denley.
NU OMICRON Vanderbilt U .
Change. Things are happening for Nu Omicron this summer. Many saw the graduation of many seniors who move on to new jobs or to other educational institutions. May was also a month for marriages. The Nu Omicron chapter wishes happiness to W endy Smith and Nu Omicron alumna Lisa Kynoch. And May brought construction crews to the AOII house at Vanderbiltforafacelift. Torn sidwalks, roof tiles, and a sky light mean change for the better on the AOII home, reported Suzanne Metzger.
NU LAMBDA
U. of S. California
We would like to thank the Rush Team forall the hard work, support and fun we had during our special rush. We pledged 12 outstanding girls from which our chapter will grow. Last year we were awarded the "Best Pledge Program" and the "Highest GPA" on the row. We had a graffitti exchange with TE3> and a toga exchange with *KT. Nu Lambda is one of the two contenders in the ihtersorority sports competition, Helen of Troy. We enjoyed our "ClashBash" pledge^active, a weekend up in Northern California for the Stanford football game, and our winter formal at the Queen Mary. Welcome to our new advisers Diane Beckman, Lisa Niedanthal and Alicia Hawkins, reported Debbie Schoengold.
OMEGA OMICRON Lambuth College
Omega Omicronchapter at Lambuth College has had yet another successful semester. We began with our Rush Retreat in July. After two days of hard work preparing for rush, we learned the true meaning of sisterhood when we woke up with no water or electricity on the last day. But, all survived and it
showed September 13, Bid Day, as the AOIIs received 16 new pledges.
The girls are working hard on fund- raisers this year. We had the first fund- raiser before school. W e parked cars at the Jackson Fairgrounds for the George Jones concert. The next event was our annual Bahama Bash, a campus-wide party in which everyone dressed "Bahamian" and had a great time. September 27 was Carwash Day where we "cleaned up" cars in town and each other! (Accidehtly, ofcourse!!)Our next fundraiser was our Ghostbusters Party. After a year lay off, we brought this annual event back on October 25. Costumes worn by students were extravagant as we welcomed the "ghostly season".
Last semester wasn't allhard work to raise money. We found time to havefun with our sisters. We had everything from special AOII Night Out to get to know our new pledges to our annual Pig Roast and Christmas' Party. Pig Roast was a success as the girls and their dates "chowed" down barbeque in autumn decor. We celebrated Founders' Day with a Sunday afternoon banquet. We also held two teas this semester. The first, October 12 was Parent's Tea where we performed our Theme Party skit from Rush. The Faculty Tea, November 17,was inhonor ofour much appreciated faculty and staff of the Lambuth Family.
Second semester will be even more packed with events. We are in the beginning stages of preparing for Rose Ball and Greek All-Sing plus many other activities, including Initiation, reported Ann Myers.
OMICRON
U. of Tennessee Knoxville
After a lazy, fun, sun-filled spring break, Omicron started off spring quarter with a bang! The first-place Carnicus title was captured once again by AOII-AXA with a skit of Miami Vice Coming to Knoxville. In addition to our hard-earned Carnicus trophy was a Bowl-A-Thon trophy presented to us by Panhellenic for raising the most dollars in the bowling for underprivileged children. Our trophy case is shining brighter than ever!
Softball was another hit this quarter with Omicron's taking second place in the All-Sorority championship and having complete coverage by The Daily Beacon and Musselman's Pizza for Team of the Week.
Campus participation was far from neglected when AOII was involved in UT's breaking the Guiness world record by having the most spectators at a spring football game.

To Dragma


Omicrons' outstretched arms in Hands Across UT proved our love and support for AOII, UT, and most ofall, our country.
Individual accomplishments ran rampant this quarter with Macie Burnett being named Outstanding Greek Woman of the Year, and Chris Nagel holding her number one seed on UT's tennis team.
Not only did we enjoy the excitement of winning and receiving awards this quarter, but also giving them. The Best Athlete of the Year Award for Women's Athletics, which has been sponsored by AOII for the past ten years, was presented at the annual spring sports banquet, and much to our delight, was given great publicity, reported Poppy Hansen.
PHI
U. of Kansas
Thanks to some well-thought-out scholarship policies and a big effort on all the members' parts, Phi chapter had some great news at the beginning of the semester. With one of the highest GPA's the house has ever had, the girls were fourth on campus, out of fourteen, in grades.
To start the semester off on a positive note, Phi's Chapter Relations chairman arranged a Sunday "retreat" with Dr. Barbara Ballard as guest speaker. Dr. Ballard spoke on living together happily and being good to yourself.
Rush workshops and Rush planning meetings were held regularly throughout the semester to get ready for our January rush. The new initiates, living in the house for the first time, had a great time adjusting to all the activity around them. Phi's first party was something like an "abnormal formal," called Morp Night, and held at the TeePee outside of Lawrence.
The annual Putt-Putt Tournament, Phi's philanthropic activity, was a great success this year. Forty-five teams from houses on campus entered the tourna- ment in October, and everyone had a great time. The money that was raised went to the Arthritis Foundation.
Dad's Weekend was to the theme of "Octoberfest," and was the first week- end in November. A barn dance, a dinner, and a football game were a few of the activities planned for the dads.
As usual, members of Phi chapter have been active on campus and in the community. The fall semester went well for Phi chapter, and with a great Rush in January, the spring semester will be even better, reported Angie Kuttler.
PHI DELTA
U. of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
The last few weeks of the spring semester have been very busy for Phi
Delta chapter. On April 20th we held our annual bowl-a-thon for Arthritis research. The alumnae and collegians bowling together raised well over $200. One member, Gale Brittain raised over $60 herself.
On April 25th four members, Gale Brittain, Laurie Matuszewski, Katrin Fink, and Debbie Gruber helped the Arthritis Foundation by volunteering their services on the annual Secretaries' Day Event.
On May 3 Debi Rouse, Renee Smurawa, and Laurie Matuszewski helped out at the University of W isconsin- Milwaukee with the annual alumni run. Our own pledge adviser, Linda Moore, participated in the run, reported Laurie Matuszewski.
PI DELTA
U. of Maryland
It was a black tie affair. The Pi Deltas put on our bow ties and brushed up on our Las Vegas dealing skills to raise money for Arthritis research at our second annual Casino Night. And what a success it was, as we raised nearly $1,000 for the cause.
Social Chairman Michele Waranch got the spring semester started with a bang as the social calendar opened with a Valentine's party, "An Affair of the Heart."
The athletes of Pi Delta took to the basketball court for intramurals, on both an AOII team and a coed team with the brothers of Delta Upsilon. Both teams made it to the playoffs, but a championship was not in Pi Delta's basketball future. The swimmers of the chapter got their chance to shine as we teamed with the brothers of Sigma Alpha M u to compete in Delta Gamma's annual Anchor Splash.
competed in the Rock-A-Like lip-sync contest to raise money for Multiple Sclerosis. Sister Andrea Bricca was named the recipient of the Wendy Lou Stark Memorial Scholarship for the second straight year, reported Andrea Bricca.
SIGMA
U. of California Berkley
Returning to Berkeley in mid- January, Sigmas settled back into uni- versity life just prior to Founders' Day. We celebrated with many alumnae; our new Regional Director, Kimberly Campbell, talked about her days as a collegian and what AOII meant to her then and now. She inspired both the soon-to-be-initiated pledges and the seasoned alumnae.
After a fun-filled pledge semester, including a Pledge Sneak, football games, firesides and many good times, the pledge class of Fall 1985 was initiated on January 31, 1986.
This spring, Sigma's social calendar has been full of good times. A casual Initiation Dance kicked off the semester in January. The AOII Invitational Party was held in March, followed the next weekend by a Mother/Daughter Brunch. This served to introduce many moms to AOTI; we had mothers come to Berkley from as far as Massachusetts and New Jersey.
Early April found us busy with Sigma Chi Derby Days, an annual Greek competition in which we placed second. Right in the middle of all this, we held our first annual Ruby Jubilee. This spring formal dance took place on a boat that cruised San Francisco Bay. We watched the lights of the city twinkle as we sailed past the piers, Fisherman's Wharf, Alcatraz, and under the Bay Bridge, reported Donna Robertson.
Winter 1986
23
The chapter's first elected Alumnae
Relation's officer, Pam Myers, SIGMA OMICRON
organized a successful Alumnae Rush Party. Alums from the Baltimore- Washington, D.C. area gathered at our house for an afternoon of conversation, a slide show prepared by Pam and an invitation to participate in our Blood Drive, Casino Night and fall Rush.
Spring Break and Greek Week helped the Pi Deltas get away from the books and classrooms for awhile. The Brothers of Sigma Alpha Epsilon were our partners on the high seas as we kept with the week's Broadway theme by choosing "South Pacific," and placing second overall in the weeks events.
AOII made the front page of the Diamondback, the student newspaper, as we had an outstanding showing of four teams competing in the American Heart Association jump-a-thon. Sister Debbie Dawes became rocker Pat Benatar for an evening when she
Arkansas State U .
The ladies of Sigma Omicron chapter at Arkansas State University started the year with an exciting and quite suc- cessful Rush. We pledged 38 enthusiastic young women, making AOII the largest sorority on the Arkansas State campus. The AOIIs also came through to win the Panhellenic Scholarship Award for the highest GPA of any sorority on campus for the spring 1986 semester.
The new pledges have been quite busy already. Plans are in the making for a pledge philanthropic project—a Rock-a- Thon to raise money for Arthritis research. Also, Vice President/Pledge Trainer Melanie Williams developed a new and improved pledge program that was implemented for the first time this fall. Each pledge had a Ruby A with her


name on it. She then had a list of require- ments for initiation, such as making the required gradepoint. Each requirement the pledge meets earns her a niby on the "A." When it is full, she is initiated. The entire chapter was quite enthusiastic about the new pledge program!
This year's Pledge Dance was also quite a success; the theme was "The AOHsGameTwoByTwo."Eachcouple either dressed alikeoras twothings that naturally go together. AOIls and their dates came dressed as everything from the Blues Brothers to an oreo cookie and a carton of milk, reported Elisa Masterson.
SIGMA PHI
California State U., Northridge
Sisterhood, dedication and hard work paid off as Sigma Phi put together an impressive Rush for those at California State University, Northridge, and made quota for the fifth consecutive year. Rush brought 29 beautif til new pledges, and was only the beginning of an excit- ing semester.
The calendar was filled with com- munity, social and sisterhood events, including Homecoming, Big Sis/Little Sis parties, M r . Fraternity contest, Pledge/Initiate Event and community service projects.
AOIIs are leaders everywhere on CSUN's campus, including the daily newspaper. Patty Barrick, Copy Editor of The Daily Sundial, is a third year member of the Sundial staff.
But AOII campus involvement does not end there. Sigma Phi sisters can be found on the Homecoming committee, W omen's Softball team, Sundial staff, Order of Omega honor society, Sunburst yearbook staff, and in many more Committees and organizations on campus, reported Lisa Hull.
SIGMA R H O Slippery Rock U .
We first would like to give a big hand of applause to our Rush Chairperson Sandy Whiteman. All the sisters of Sigma Rho would like to thank you for all the time, organization, and patience that you put into formal rush.
Sigma Rho possesses many strengths concerning our rush program. Among these strengths is our ability to pull together.Infact,duringoneoftherush functions a rushee made the statement "I've never seen a group of girls get together before and not argue . . . .you guys are great." It was very pleasing to hear the comment and it reassures us even more of the bond my sisters share.
We also have an artistic ability beyond compare, i.e. using freehand calligraphy for the name tags and making roses out of crepe paper for preference tea. It's the little touches that mean alot.
24
Our theme party was centered around the beach. W e decorated the room accordingly with palm trees and straw floors. To eat, to give more of an exotic flair, we used tropical fruits. T o keep the atmosphere alive we played the "Beach Boys" in the background. We had a good time during formal rush and look forward to our continuous success with our C.O.B. parties.
Other activities Sigma Rho enjoyed this fall semester were a date party in November, many fund-raisers, and community activities, reported Denise Gerace.
TAU LAMBDA Shippensburg U.
The fall semester for the Tau Lambda chapter at Shippensburg University started off with a bang! The sisters threw themselves wholeheartedly into a semester of AOII activities.
A list of exciting new Rush themes Opened a successful Rush season for the chapter. These unique Rush themes in- cluded a Nerd vs. Preppy rush, Fifties and Sixties Rush, and a Debutante Rush, where everyone looked very enchanting.
The most special time of the fall semes- ter was the initiation of our spring pledge class. Roseweek, leading up to initiation, was a week full of fun activities, planned by Pledge Trainer Jane Cunnion. Activi- ties included Rose Night, big/little skits, pot luck dinner, and the highlight— Initiation. Congratulations to our newly initiated sisters!
Homecoming festivities were in mid- October. Events included a bon-fire, dance, and parade, where AOII teamed with TK£ fraternity in building a float to the theme of Life Under the Big Top.
MaryBeth Carpenter, Tau Lambda philanthropic officer, has been busy planning a host of fundraisers and service projects, to keep AOII involved on the Shippensburg campus. Projects include babysitting at a nearby church, ball girls for mens football and soccer teams, timing swim meets, a carnation andballoonsale,andaninhouseauction fundraiser, reported Cathy Heist.
TAU OMICRON
U. of Tennessee Martin
When Tau Omicron heard it was springtime, they took it literally and sprang into action. We started the quarteroffwithabangbycapturingthe Sorority Service Award for the second consecutive year and the Sorority Sports Award at the annual Panhellenic Banquet. Individual University Service Awards were presented to sisters Tracy Cline, Tonya Hunt, Paula McFarland and Linda Tankersley.
The long-awaited 20th anniversary celebration for Tau Omicron finally arrived in April. Many alumnae, in- cluding nine charter members, were in attendance and the activities were enjoyed by all.
The next event on the agenda was the annual Phi Sig Follies competition. The theme was "A Tributeto the Fifties"and we placed second with our rendition of "Splish Splash" and "Jailhouse Rock."
Tau Omicron was exceptionally proud of our spring service projects. Our annual Miss Weakley County pageant for Arthritis was a great success and as if that wasn't enough, we raised $1122 with one of our annual road-blocks.
Tau Omicron's spring rush retreat was full of excitement this year as we were joined by sisters from Rhodes College. We shared ideas and had afun- filled day of fellowship.
Tau Omicron found ourselves in the Broadway lights in May as we partici- pated in the annual All-Sing competition. We were awarded second place in the sorority division for our performance of selections from the Broadway musical "Fiddler on the Roof".
To end the quarter, we held a Senior Send-off party for all graduating seniors and those not returning in the fall. There's always sadness in seeing a sister leave, but with itcomes the joyofknow- ing she will never be far away in AOII, reported Michelle Campbell.
THETA CHI Morningside College
This summer four members of the Theta Chi chapter and one alumna attended the Leadership Conference in Bloomington, Illinois. Much was learn- ed while at the conference and relayed to the members of Theta Chi upon returning to school.
The fall semester got off to a busy start with many improvements to the house during pre-Rush week. Everyone worked hard to get all the cleaning and painting done by the beginning of Rush week. Thanks to all!
Rush week was fun and successful thanks to all the hard work of our Rush Chairman, Barb Jensen. Activities included Red and White Night, AOII Fantasy Island Night and Preference Night. We are excited to have five pledges and hope to gain more through Continuous Open Bidding!
September 27 brought the Annual Cornbowl Parade in which we entered a float which was a joint effort by the sororities on campus. Everyone had a good time. In October we had our Alumnae Brunch and our Annual Barn Ball, reported Tara Meyer.

THETA Depauw U.
Second semester was a very busy one for the girls of Theta chapter, starting with Initiation as we proudly initiated 26 wonderful young women. Soon, it was time for our Spring Formal at the Waterfront, which turned out to be one of our most enthusiastic and enjoyable dances yet.
One of our most exciting moments this semester was our first Little 500 bike race victory at Depauw University.
We finished the semester off with Rock-a-thon, our annual philanthropic project. This year was a little different, though. Instead of rocking in rocking chairs, we combined forces with the University's radio station, WGRE, and danced to some rock & roll for 48 hours, reported Meg Hanson.
UPSILON LAMBDA
U. of Texas San Antonio
Upsilon Lambda chapter has been busy all summer preparing for Formal Rush. We met once a week to work on conversation skills and our skit. September came very quickly and Formal Rush began. Imagine 30 AOHs dressed in sailor outfits in a mist of rainbow colored backdrops and a magnificent balloon arch just waiting to greet 60 eager rushees. AOFI was a big hit on the second night of rush when we held our own version of "Bye Bye Birdie". The rushees were impressed with the pendants we received from AOFI chapters allacross the U.S. Thanks a lot!! Preference night we dazzled the rushees with our beautiful red formals and unique waterfall. All of our hard work paid off when we pledged quota and went over chapter total again!! We're looking forward to a great semester with our terrific new pledges.
Debbie Lee,

She is a senior, majoring in Interior Design. She will grace the cover of next year's Pike Dream Girl calendar. AOris Susie Schreiner and Julie W ard, also from Lambda Sigma, will also be featured in the 1986-87 calendar.
This semester we also had a food booth at "Bestfest" (a mini festival), a philanthropic project, a Christmas retreat, and a Christmas semi-formal, reported Elizabeth Leinweber.
ZETA PSI
E. Carolina U.
AOn—QUOTA! These two words have taken Zeta Psi and the East Carolina U. campus by storm.
After many years of struggling Zeta Psi is proud to announce that with this pledge class of 32 girls we more than doubled our sisterhood and are also quickly approaching campus house total!
And while we went for quantity in Rush, we also went for quality! We know that the pledges we selected will work their hardest for Zeta Psi and will love AOFI as much as we do.
A successful fall Rush hasn't been the only thing keeping the girls here in such high spirits. This fall we returned to school with new houseparents. We also received a new chapter adviser, Jeannie Arbergest, who was once a Zeta Psi chapter member.
Aside from all the great new faces, the house also got some new looks. Allof the bedrooms received a fresh coat of paint this summer during AOII weekend. New blinds were also purchased for these rooms and we are also planning to install ceiling fans in all of the bedrooms.
So, with all of this great new help from our advisers, alumnae, house- parents, and of course, our brand new pledge class we have to say watch out ECU—here comes Zeta Psi—AOn! Also, special thanks to all of the terrific help we have received. We couldn't have done it without all of your support, reported Karen Heim.

Alumnae Chapter Activity
ATLANTA
On July 23, 1985 the Atlanta
Alumnae Chapter established the Annie Stuart Pearce Arthritis Endowment Fund in loving memory and honor of Annie Stuart Pearce. Annie Stuart, Pi, had been an AOII for 60 years and was one of the founders of the Lambda Sigma chapter at the University of Georgia. Annie Stuart was a charter member of the Atlanta Alumnae Chap- ter and served as president six times.
The Atlanta alums presented a check for $2,500 to Atlanta's Egleston Hospital for pediatric arthritis research to initiate this fund. It is the intent of the chapter to add to this fund annually. One half the annual gift will be added to the endowment; the remainder of the annual gift and one half the interest from the endowment may be used at the discretion of the Chairman of the Department of Pediatrics for arthritis related projects. Dr. Donna Gibbas and her work will be the beneficiaries for the gift. The Atlanta alums also contribute annually to the National Arthritis Foundation.
However, we are not all work and no play. We enjoyed a party with our husbands at Lake Lanier this past summer, met with the alumnae in LaGrange, and held a Christmas luncheon in December. We have planned a busy spring too, under the leadership of Edith Beers, and her officers.
BALTIMORE
The Baltimore Alumnae Chapterhas
been celebrating sisterhood with a crowded AOII calendar. Highlight of the spring was the shared excitement of planning and participating in the colonization of Theta Beta at Towson State University on March 18.
Our meeting on April 9 featured the installation of our new officers for 1986-87 resulting in President Kathleen Baumgardner Campanella, Vice President Dale Eberlein Scarlett, Recording Secretary Ginny Wertin Linder, Corresponding Secretary Nancy Sutton Elson, and Treasurer Mary Pohanka Parr.
Four days later, on April 13, a group of us packed food in cars and traveled to Washington College in Chestertown, MD to hold a luncheon for the seniors of
Sigma Tau chapter. We revealed the names of their secret sisters who had been sending them cards during the school year, presented each with an AOII key ring, and held a ceremony welcoming them into alumnae status.
Still in the party mood, we saluted our IIOAs with our annual dinner held on April 19 at the home of Fi Nicholson Pappas. Named I10A Man of the Year was Charlie Scarlett for devoting his time and talent to computerizing our chapter mailing list.
Sunday, April 27, found us in front of our television sets watching the annual Arthritis Telethon. Baltimore alum member. Sue Shuffle Kreft, is Director of the Maryland Chapter of the Arthritis Foundation and played a large role in the local program. During the telecast, Hilda Ott Micari presented our check to be used for a new aerobics program for arthritics.
At our May 14 supper meeting, Dale Scarlett was awarded our chapter's Certificate of Honor. This event also featured special recognition of our seven valuable members in the golden years of AOII: Margaret Safford Dudley Boulden, Anna Dorsey Cooke, Edna Burnside Devereux, Barbara Schilling Everstine, Margaret Crunkleton Starkey, Edith Burnside Whiteford, and Audrey Bosley Wright. Four fifty year pins were awarded, and all seven re- ceived rose stick pins.
A successful bake sale for arthritis was held at Good Samaritan Hospital, a center for arthritis research, on May 19. Part of our local contribution is desig- nated each year for this center.
In June it was off to Nashville for Region II's Leadership Conference for four members—President Kathleen Campanella, Melis Roche Erlbeck as Colony Adviser for Theta Beta, Nancy Elson representing Pi Delta Corpora- tion, and Sandy Reeder as a new Regional Director. Kathleen's suitcase on the return trip contained awards for membership recruitment, philanthropy, and a Certificate of Achievement. The continued growth of our chapter and the interest of all members made these awards possible.
A summer evening sail in the Balti- more harbor on July 10 was enjoyed by 24 AOIIs and IlOAs when we chartered a working oyster boat, the Minnie V , to see the tall ships that had arrived in port from New York's Independence Day
became a rescue at sea when the engine failed on the return trip, and we were "saved" by a harbor pilot boat.
Nashville and Baltimore again were linked in August when we were fortunate to have Regional Vice Presi- dent Nancy Perry Bowers visit us to train the Alumnae Advisory Committee for Theta Beta and to discusss plans for the chapter installation. We were also privileged to have Peg Crawford with us for Theta Beta Installation, Oct. 11.
Our 1986-87 year began with a wel- come to new and returning members at a Salad Fixin's Supper on September 10. We are looking forward to a program of varied meetings and fund raisers, and the fun of "Going Places Together" as we continue to expand our special events, reported Sandy Reeder.
CHICAGO WEST SUBURBAN
The second half of the year was very busy for the Chicago West Suburban Alumnae as we played trivial pursuit in January and brushed up on home decorating in February.
In March we made ice cream magnets for the children at Wyler Children's Hospital, University of Chicago. This is a local project that our group supports every year. On a Saturday, usually in April, members from our group go to the hospital to deliver the favors to the children and spend some time in the playroom with them.
Another philanthropic project that we worked on this year was the Na- tional Arthritis Telethon. Lynda Kerzic Given, Omega '75; Trish Hiller Akin, Phi '65, Linda Weingartner Brown, Iota '74; and Judy Gambrel Flessner, Iota '76 worked the phones one evening at a mall on the west side of Chicago and raised over $800 in pledges.
At the April meeting, Judy Flessner, outgoing President, conducted Ritual to install the newly elected officers. Some of those officers include our Executive Board: President Trish Hiller Akin, Phi '65, Deb Cecil Jacobs, Sigma Iota '71 and Vice President Ways and Means Linda Schwartz McElhany, N u Iota '70; Vice President Programming Nancy Perko Bussing, Phi Upsilon '74; Vice President Membership Liz Hafner Pietch, Beta Phi '78; and Treasurer Judy Gambrel Flessner, Iota '76. After the installation, we celebrated with an A O Piefest. What a lot of good eating!

celebration. The two hour
cruise


The month of May came and we toasted the warm weather by dining out at the Magic Pan restaurant. Also, on a beautiful Saturday at the end of May we held our annual Aim For Arthritis Golf Outing to raise money for arthritis research grants.
Trish Akin, Deb Jacobs, Judy Flessner and Nancy Bussing all traveled to Bloomington, II., for Region V's Leadership Conference. At the Conference, Judy was elected Regional Extension Officer. We all had a great time, and we were delighted to get to knowoursistersin"new"RegionV.We look forward to seeing them next summer. Westward Ho!!
DECATUR AREA
The Decatur Area Alumnae Chapter proudly celebrated our first anniver- sary as a chapter this past June, and we are already busily involved in making our second year as fulfilling as the first one. We had a make-bake-or-grow auction, cookie swap at Christmas, a pot-luck salad supper (that included a surprise bridal shower for President Linda Hyde, who became Mrs. Dennis Ratliff in October) and a delightful family picnic right before school started.
Our officers for this year include President Linda Hyde, Vice President Kathy Gray, Treasurer Wanda Dougherty, Secretary Debbie Rains, Membership Chairman and Panhellenic Representative Anna Davis, and Reporter/Public Relations Betsy Thompson.
We participated in the annual Decatur Panhellenic Tea, held in May to inform all graduating high school seniors about Rush. Each sorority was allowed to have three representatives, and ourdelegates were Anna Davis, Betsy Thompson and Mary Louise Ogle.
This fall we enjoyed a make-and-grow auction, officers' meeting and a Christ- mas get-together. We look forward to an Easter egg hunt for the AOIIchildren next spring, a fund-raiser for our philanthropic and a lot more fun. We hope this new year for our chapter will be filled with closer bonds among ourselves, fellowship and growth. If anyone in the Decatur area doesn't know about our chapter or hasn't yet participated and is interested, please call Linda Hyde Ratliff at 350-3565 or Anna Davis at 355-5363. We'd love to hear from you, reported Betsy Thompson.
DENVER
As is customary for the Denver Area Alumnae, our year was full of events.
Our first meeting in 1986 was held in
January. A spinner and weaver provided
a program/demonstration of the
spinning wheel. We repeated ourannual
February Luncheon due to its previous
success. A n interior designer provided a
very informativeprogram. A night out
for the family was in March when we

HOPKINSVILLE AREA
Enthusiasm is always in the air when the Hopkinsville Area Alumnae Chapter meets!
Among our chapter goals is the support of rtO chapter at Austin Peay State University, since they are the closest collegiate chapter to our alumnae chapter. Last spring we purchased a vacuum cleaner for their campus suite.
We were also delighted to prepare and serve a buffet luncheon during the n o chapter installation weekend last May. Lunch was served to 67 AOns present.
The second annual AOn-Little River Days Bake-Off was held in May. Entry fees and profits from the sale of the baked goods were donated in our name to the United Way.
In July, Susan Mabry Ahart, AX, and Sandy Bruce Power, AX, attended the Regional Leadership Meeting and led a discussion group on membership infor- mation forms. Our chapter was selected because of the large number of MIF's we send to collegiate chapters. At least 60 MIF's were completed for the Fall 1986 rush season, reported Carrie Joy Welborn Brookshire.
INDIANAPOLIS
The Indianapolis Alumnae Chapter has had some wonderful times together! One of our favorite activities is, of course, to eat! That is why the meetings involving food are always so well at-
KENTUCKIANA ALUMNAE Congratulations to us! The Ken-
tuckiana Alumnae Chapter was so proud to have received two awards at Leadership Conference in Nashville this summer. We were honored with an Alumnae Chapter Achievement Certificate, and one of only two awards given internationally to alumnae chap- ters for outstanding contributions to the Alpha Omicron Pi Foundation.
Our annual Alumnae/Collegian Get- Together was a "splashing" success. A pool party was held at the beautiful home of Kim Nichols, nA. We were pleased to have collegians from Univer- sity of Louisville, University of Ken- tucky, Miami of Ohio, Hanover, and Ole Miss present at the event.
The program committee has planned a very exciting, fun-filled calendar for our chapter this year. We began the year in September with our "Fall Kick Off Brunch." We welcomed many new faces. Our October meeting "All About Arthritis", was very informative—not only for the alumnae chapter, but also for the collegians, their mothers, and members of the community. A repre- sentative from the Arthritis Foundation presented a film and shared with us new developments in Arthritis Research.
With fall in the air, we had a luncheon and a tour of Huber's Winery in Indiana for our November meeting.
MILWAUKEE
We Care! was the theme our Chapter President, Mrs. Judy Larson Knecht, Rho, presented for our 1985-86 Milwaukee Alumnae Chapter program. In September, Kathy Battles, Phi Delta, our corresponding secretary oversaw a huge mailing of our fall newsletter. She tried to reach every AOn alum in the surrounding area. As a result we met some new sisters we didn't know were living near us who came to our first meeting. Kathy discovered an AOn who happened to be in the same nursing home as her grandmother who was de- lighted to be remembered in our mailing.
We Care! about our Philanthropic Foundation, too. Milwaukee Alumnae Vice Pres., Mrs. Lynn Radtke Ferger, Phi Delta, organized a nut sale before Christmas. It was a tasty success and proceeds went to the AOn Philanthropic Founation. Other fundraising proceeds went to Diamond Jubilee Foundtion, reported Dee Schlecht.
NORTH HOUSTON SUBURBAN
The Leadership Conference in Okla- homa City this June was truly reward- ing for the North Houston Suburban Alumnae Chapter. Alumnae President Alice Jo Shannon was thrilled to accept our certificate for Outstanding Achievement. We have really blossomed in our mere two year existence.
Ruth Sunker, outgoing president and current membership chairman, graciously opened her home to AOns and spouses this August for a potluck barbecue party to benefit Arthritis Research.
Our traditional fall brunch was held at the Wyndham Hotel on September 27th. Kathy Hansen received rounds of applause for the wonderful arrange- ments. The fruit notecards made a refreshing favor.
This fall found the North Houston chapter busy with several philanthropic
To conclude our fall schedule, we had our Founders' Day Celebration tended! August found Indianapolis Saturday, December 7th at the
alumnae meeting with localcollegians to enjoy a Dynasty of Desserts party. September followed with the annual fall pitch-in. Recipes from both food events are being compiled for an alumnae cook- book.
The fall season always means nuts to Indianapolis AOns. Every year members hit the streets to sell pecans, walnuts, and cashews. This year we also tried our hand at selling Indianapolis dining guides. All the hard work has really paid off for the group, reported Sue Trump.
Sheraton in Clarksville, Indiana.
The activities planned cover a variety of interests and opportunities to enjoy sisterhood. We recognize how busy we are with our own personal schedules, therefore, this year for the first time we are organizing a series of informal get- togethers. Just one example, a trip to the Louisville Zoo. We hope to be able to plan activities involving children, husbands, and dates so as to accomodate everyone's interests. Please join us in
the fun, reported Sandra Dearen.

endeavors. Our first activity was stuffing packets for the Arthritis Foundation. We participated in the Kingwood garage sale in October and collected canned goods and other needed items for the 3-H Center in Bordersville, an assistance community center, in December.
We have adopted the newly re- established Pi chapter at Sophie Newcomb College in New Orleans. We will be sending them care packages throughout the year along with warm fuzzies of support.
January will be a time of renewing friendships as the Houston Alumnae Chapter joins us for our Founders' Day luncheon. Spring will bring speakers and demonstrations on health and fitness and home decorating. Then there is our Ladies' Sunday Af ternoon at the Theater. There are so many wonderful community theaters, that it is hard to make a choice.
Of course, the year would not be complete without us taking our hus- bands to the ball game, Astros style, complete with dinner beforehand. We need to get to know that person whose ear we choose to yell in at the game, reported Sue Metz Dornier.
BALTIMORE ALUMNA HONORED
Margaret Safford Boulden, Theta, was recently honored by the city to whom she gave so much. The "Balti- more's Best" Award was presented to Margaret by the city's mayor, William Donald Sehaefer, in a ceremony that recognized 27 individuals and in- stitutions for outstanding service. Among the most notable of Margaret's contributions to the city was the creation of the Holly Tour which has been a Yuletide tradition for the past two decades. As the founding tour director, Margaret has led the way into holly-bedecked churches, public buildings and private homes in re- vitalizatipn areas of the city. The Holly Tour has often been credited with awakening waning interest in the city and, in recent years, with raising over $120,000 on behalf of several local charities.
Margaret is also a member of the Baltimore Council for International Visitors, the Girl Scouts and the first woman elder of her church. In addi- tion to being named "Baltimore's Best" Margaret has been previously honored by the Baltimore Jaycees and by the Church Women United of Greater Baltimore.

What phrase did Alpha Omicron Pi's founders use to describe "being in love"? Which one of the founders was president of the Barnard College Banjo Club? Who designed the AOII badge?
Philanthropic projects included addressing Christmas cards for the Arthritis Foundation and support of the Women's Transitional Living Center with donations of clothing, household goods and financial aid.
An important goal this year was taking a more active part in providing aid to collegiate chapters in our area. Attending mock rush and providing lunch during rush at Lambda Beta gave us an opportunity to become better acquainted with the collegians. Making name tags and arranging flowers for Nu Lambda's rush provided more inter- action with collegians.
Jule Robbins Burns has spent an active year working for AOII. She is currently secretary of the Southern California Council,and on the corpora- tion board at Lambda Beta. She accepted the positions of International Member- ship Chairman and convention boutique chairman. We think Julie is exemplary in her dedication to AOII and we were happy to be able to honor her with an award for her outstanding contributions, reported Pat Halibozek.

Five of our members attended the Region V I Leadership Conference in Oklahoma City in June. With us went Jeanine Paulissen and Peggy Taylor who were initiated as associate members at the opening Ritual.
The Pullman Alumnae Chapter and seniors from Washington State Univer- sity's Alpha Gamma chapter know the answers, thanks to a trivia contest at the annual senior recognition party. Seniors and alumnae met in advance of WSU's May 10 graduation for cookies, punch, games, gifts and poetry. Honored were 16 Alpha Gamma seniors.
The answers to the trivia questions? "Having a toothache", Shakespeare's phrase for "being in love." Helen St. Clair Mullan. And Theodore Starr.

PHILADELPHIA
A cocktail party was the most recent event sponsored by the members of the Philadelphia Alumnae Chapter. The party, held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. (Natalie) Karl DelPorte in W ayne, Pennsylvania, was an occasion for the current members to become better ac- quainted and to familiarize other area AOIIs with the newly reorganized alumnae chapter. The late afternoon gathering was a smashing success and was topped-of f with a raffledrawing for a wine basket. The alumnae chapter raised $200 from the raffle and sends thanks to Andrea Schwartz for selling the winning ticket.
Several exciting events were planned for the remainder of 1986, including a formal Ritual meeting, a Christmas Party, and a Christmas time f undraiser. As always, our members always enjoy pur Annual Founders' Day Celebration, on January 18, 1987.
For those AOIIs seeking further infor- mation on our newly reorganized chapter, please contact: Mrs. Kimberly C. McGowan, 1659 Hemlock Circle, Downingtown, PA 19335. We'd love to

Alums, by the way, won the trivia con- test—with 150 points to 50 points for the seniors.
A couple's party followed in May at the home of Lance and Shirley Perryman, as did a garage sale at Sandy Edwards. The sale was a hit, doubling the alumnae treasury and reaping a donation to the Diamond Jubilee Foundation.
The Pullman Chapter also bid fare- well—but only temporarily—to two alumnae, Sandy Edwards and Diane Smerdon. They'll spend the 1986-87 school year overseas, while their husbands are on sabbatical from WSU.
Louis alums for1985-86 year have come and gone and that we are looking forward to a whole new year of programs.
Highlights of the past year included a delightful evening of crafts for the would be "crafty Lady" of Missouri. This unique shop in St. Louis features only Missouri crafters and all of us enjoyed the descriptions and history of the crafts brought in to be shown to our group.
November brought a very special time for all of us, as we celebrated our Founders' Day. We were very pleased to have as our guests the collegians from both Delta Pi and Delta Alpha, our Missouri chapters at Warrensburg and

ROCHESTER
O u r 1986-87 year has
"flavorful" start. Rochester AOIIs enjoyed a wine tasting and cheese party . This years co-presidents, Alice Ross Taylor and Terry Coolican, were our hostesses. They explained the proper procedure for tasting wine and how certain cheeses are the best compliment for particular wines. Each member was to bring her favorite wine with a history of the wine to share. Some wines had been acquired on vacations, so we had some interesting stories of travel and wine from New York, Massachusettes, California, and West Germany.
Two other exciting events of the year are our Founders' Day and our second annual AOPie party. At Founders' Day we had a wonderfulcarry-in gourmet dinner, renewal of vows with sisters, a gift exchange, and toy and clothing collection for the Alternatives For Battered Women. Our AOPie party happens when everyone brings her favorite pie and recipe to share.
Rochester AOIIs are active in Roches- ter Panhellenic events. These included a musical perform ed by Pittsford Musicals and a food tasting party where each sorority contributes two food items, then we all buy tickets to taste everyone elses food. For our final meet- ing of the year Alice and Terry have promised us some fun and lots of mystery. They are throwing a Surprise Party for the rest of Rochester's AOIIs. All we can do is wait, speculate, and be in suspense all year to see what will happen, reported Judith Plunkett Wien.
ST. LOUIS
Where has the past year gone? It doesn't seem possible that the meetings, activities, and just plain fun for the St.
guest was Jo Beth Heflin, International Chairman for Fraternity Development. She gave a beautiful speech that was an inspiration to all of us. Thank you again, Jo Beth!
December brought our annual Hobby and C raft Auction, with Marty Deckman Cramer doing a wonderful job as our auctioneer. The funds raised are used for our commitments to various philanthropic projects.
We can't leave our men out! January brought an evening with our IIOAs. It was nice to put a name with a familiar face or more likely the voice on the phone. What fun!
February brought out an opening of our homes to the Regional Officers from both V and VI.We transported, fed, housed and most importantly enjoyed a chance to meet all of the dedicated and wonderful sisters who make AOII continue to grow for both the collegians and alumnae. Our AOII love to you all!
Spring came upon us and ouractivities included a tour of the St. Louis Art Museum, our annual salad supper and installation of new officers, and a wonderful time at Shriner's Hospital for Crippled Children, playing Bingo. We also had some of our members attend the chapter installation at the University of Missouri, Columbia.
We are looking forward to another fun filled year with all the St. Louis
