a salute to our President
Linda Peters Collier, Chi Omicron, Central State U
Two years ago, AOFI council elected Linda Peters Collier International President of Alpha Omicron Pi. Linda and the entire 1997-99 Executive Board have served our Fraternity magnificently over the past biennium - the first biennium of AOITs second century and the last biennium of the 20th Century. We bid this board farewell with heartfelt thanks and gratitude for their countless hours of service, their enthusiasm,
and their love for AOFI.
In her 1997 President's address, Linda said, "We must have the courage to dream and to dream BIG. Without dream- ing and planning for the future, without thinking about how things could be better, we won't grow... and we won't be able to meet the challenges of the future." She shared her hopes and dreams with AOn and we are a better organization because of her leadership.
During this biennium, the Executive Board along with the Fraternity Management Committee, finalized and implemented a 3-year Strategic Plan for the Fraternity. It has guided us with direction and purpose and gives us the
building blocks for future growth and strengthening of the Fraternity.
We are positioning for our future with the relocation of our International Headquarters building. You can read more about this exciting endeavor on page 11 of this issue of To Dragma. Our alumnae department has experienced tremendous growth with the addition of 20 new alumnae chapters installed this biennium. This spring, we installed our 174th collegiate chapter, Epsilon Sigma, Quincy University. It is with joy we announce the recolonization of three of our collegiate chapters for the 1999-2000 school year. These include Beta Phi Chapter, Indiana U; Pi Chapter, Tulane L ; and Rho Chapter, Northwestern U. Our programming and services have expanded and our Leadership Institute remains one of the finest educational confer- ences in the Greek world. It is a wonderful time for AOFI.
On behalf of the entire Fraternity, we thank you Linda, Julie, Caroline, Joanne, Carole, Rosalie, Mary and Kim for your dedication and leadership.

Sunday,April7,1991,beganasatypicaldayforme....wewenttochurch, had lunch, then my husband headed for the golf course for his usual Sunday afternoon game of golf. I decided to spend a leisurely afternoon watching a good movie, so I headed for the nearest video store, where I selected a film about a friendship between two young women. I had heard nothing about this particular movie, but decided to rent it anyway.... well, it turned out to be a film about two young women who met at a cancer treatment center where both were receiving treatment They became very good friends during the months of their treatment, but the movie had a sad ending, because one of the young women survived, and the other died. This film touched my heart, and I wept many tears while watching these two young women battling to live.

To Dtragma/SUMMER 1999


That night, as a result of watching this film, when I took my bath, I performed a breast examination, and discovered a lump in my right breast... I immediately told my husband. This was nothing new for us, because I had experienced my first lumpectomy when I was only 24.... other lumps had been aspirated, another mass removed just 5 years previous- ly... each time the tumors were benign... but when I examined myself on this night I knew this lump was different, and expressed my concern to my husband.
The next morning, I called the surgical oncologist who had performed my previous surgery, and made an appointment to see him in Memphis on Friday. When he examined me that day, he said, "I think we've got prob- lems this time." We discussed my options, and I elected to have the lumpectomy and lymph node axillary dissec- tion, which was done on Tuesday, April 16th. The tumor was malignant, as we suspected, but the oncologist was fairly certain there was no lymph node involvement, so we made plans for me to begin radiation treatment.
I was still in a positive state of mind. I wasn't surprised that the tumor was malignant.... remember, I had dodged the bullet several times previously, and 1 felt confident about receiving the radiation treatments... but when we received the results about my lymph nodes, I learned that
one of twenty-two nodes tested positive, which indicated that the cancer had spread to at least one lymph node. I was devastated.... I would now need both radiation and chemotherapy!
When I met with the oncolo- gist who would supervise my chemotherapy, he informed
me that the tumor in my breast was quite small, only 0.5cm in diameter, but because it had already spread to my lymph nodes, it was considered to be an aggressive type cancer, and needed to be treated aggressively.

What is Breast Cancel
Most kinds of cancer are named after the part of the body where the cancer first starts. Breast cancer begins in the breast tissue. Inside the breasts are glands that produce and release milk after a woman has a baby. The breast itself is made up of milk-secreting glands; ducts; and fatty, connective, and lymphatic tissue. The glands that make the milk are called lobules and the tubes that connect them to the nipple are called ducts.
There are several types of breast tumors. Most are benign; that is, they are not cancer. These lumps are often caused by fibrocystic changes. Cysts are fluid-filled sacs, and fibrosis refers to connective tissue or scar tissue formation. Fibrocystic changes can cause breast swelling and pain. The breasts may feel lumpy and sometimes there is a clear or slightly cloudy nipple dis- charge. Benign breast tumors are abnormal growths, but they do not spread outside of the breast and they are not life-threatening.
A tumor that hasn't spread beyond the area where it began is called in situ. It is confined to the ducts or lobules. Here are some terms that describe the most common types of breast cancer:
X Lobular carcinoma in situ (LOS): Although not a true cancer, this condition increases a woman's risk of developing cancer later.
X Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS): This is breast cancer at its earliest stage (stage 0). Nearly 100% of women with cancer at this stage can be cured.
X Infiltrating (or invasive) lobular carcinoma (ILC): This cancer starts in the milk glands (lobules), breaks through the wall of the gland and invades the fatty tissue of the breast Between 10% and 15% of breast cancers are of this type.
X Infiltrating (or invasive) ductal carcinoma (IDC): This cancer starts in the milk passage or duck,breaksthroughthewalloftheduct,andinvadesthefattytissueofthebreast IDCisthe mostcommontypeofbreastcancer.Itaccountsfornearly80%ofbreastcancer.
X Node-positive and node-negative breast cancer: Node-positive means that the cancer has spread (metastasized) to the lymph nodes under the arm on the same side. Node-negative means that the lymph nodes are free of cancer.
Note: There are several other less common types of breast cancer, You can get more information on these from the American Cancer Society.

As 1 lay awake those first nights after my diagnosis, I faced my own mortality... "my body is carrying a dis- ease from which 1 may recover, or I mav not...\\ill I have the opportunity to see my grandchildren grow op? Will I live to see my son marry? Will [ get to enjoy those golden years of retire- ment with my husband?"
I consciously resolved to light this cancer that invaded my body with every weapon available to me! Wanting to be as informed as possible about this disease I would be fighting, I read numerous books on breast cancer... some were informative and comforting, but others caused me more fear. Amazingly, you soon dis- cover that your greatest enemv is not the disease, but subtle, slippery feelings of despair, the thief of peace. God gave me the strength to get through each day, and the raanv prayers that were sent Heavenward in my behalf began to bless me. and to give me the peace I needed to begin my fight against cancer.
Shortly after I began radiation treatments, I received a call from Mary Kathrvn Berry, the founder of the Northeast Arkansas Breast Cancer Support Group in Jonesboro, inviting me to attend their meet- ings.. .. this support group was such a source of positive encouragement to me through-

Other than my family and local friends, one of my great- est sources of support throughout mv eight months of radiation and chemothera- py was a dear AOI1 sister, Kav Cameron Yount, who is also a breast cancer survivor. Kav called me frequently from her home in Ft. Worth, TX, and sent many gifts to cheer me. She knew just when I would be feeling the lowest, and sent a box of gifts

Wh^t 3retheriskfgcte for breast cancel
According to the N^tion^l Canoar Institute's 'W/Wf You Need to KnowAbout Breast Cancer, thefollowingareknownriskfactorsforbreastcancer:
AcjC: The risk of breast cancer increases as a woman gets older. Most breast cancers occur in women over the age of 50; the risk is especially high lor women over 60.
Family hiStOfy: The risk of getting breast cancer increases for a woman whose mother, sister, or daughter has had the disease. The woman's risk increases more if her rela- tive's cancer developed before menopause or if it affects both breasts. About 5 percent of women with breast cancer have a hereditary form of this disease. These women usually devel- op breast cancer at a younger age (before menopause) and they have multiple family members with the disease.
Personal history: The risk of breast cancer is greater than average in women who have had lobular carcinoma in situ. About 25 percent of women diag- nosed with this condition develop invasive breast cancer. Also, women who have had breast cancer face an increased risk of getting breast cancer again. As many as 10 to 15 percent of women treated for breast cancer (or ductal carcinoma in situ) get a sec-
ond primarv (new) breast cancer later on.
Other risk factorsforbreast cancer include starting to men-
struate at an early age (before 12) or having a late menopause (after 55).
The risk is also "reater
in women who had
their first child after
the age of 30 and
those who never had children. These factors are all related to a woman's natural hormones. At this time, no one knows for certain whether the risk of breast cancer is affected bv taking medicines that contain hormones (either to treat infertility, or as estrogen replacement therapy to control symptoms of menopause). Scientists hope to find the answer to this impor- tant question bv studying a large number of w omen taking part in hormone-related research.
Many WOrnen are concerned about benign breast condi- tions. For most women, the ordinary "lumpiness" they feel in their breasts does not increase their risk of breast cancer. However, women who have had breast biopsies that show cer- tain benign changes in breasttissues,such as atypical hyperpla- sia, do have an increased risk of breast cancer.
Scientists are exploring other possible risk factors for breast cancer. For example, research is in progress to deter- mine whether the risk of breast cancer is affected by environ- mental factors. Pesticides, electromagnetic fields, engine exhausts, and contaminants in water and food are some of the
environmental factors under study.
Some aspects of a woman's lifestyle may affect
her chances of developing breast cancer. For example, some studies point to a slight- ly higher risk of breast cancer
among women who drink alcohol The risk appears to go up with the amount of alcohol consumed, so women who drink should do so only in
moderation.
Scientists are trying to learn whether having an abortion or mis- carriage increases the risk of breast cancer. Thus far, studies have pro- duced conflicting evidence, and tins
question is still unresolved
Ol4<ei" WOmen who are over- weight seem to have a greater risk of breast cancer. Although the possi- ble link between diet and breast cancer is still unclear and under study, some scientists believe that choosing a low-fat diet, eat- ing well-balanced meals with plenty of fruits and vegetables, and maintaining ideal weight may lower a woman's risk. Also, recent studies suggest that regular exercise may decrease the
risk of breast cancer in younger women.
For more information on risk factors, call the Cancer Information Service at f-800-4-C\NCER, or see the National Cancer Institutes publication What You Need to Know About Breast Cancer.

painful... no one had told me about this, so it came as one of those little unwel- come surprises. The week- end I lost mv hair was extremely traumatic. I thought I was mentally pre- pared, but when mv hair began to come out by hands full on that Labor Day weekend, I lost it!!! My husband, Michie, was so wonderful as he held me close numerous times over
the week-end, letting me cry, and reassuring me that he loved me just as much bald, and even complimenting me on my nicely shaped bald head! To this day, I do not understand why the hair loss meant so much, especially since I was fighting for my life! I was shocked that the loss of my hair affected me so strongly.
I can trutlifully say, in retro- spect, that having breast can- cer was not all bad.... the sen- sitivity and loving ('are shown
bv mv family as they minis- tered to my needs, both physi- cally and emotionally, was a continuous blessing through- out my treatment. I made lots of new friends, also pink war- riors, who are very dear to me, with whom I share this common bond....sadly, over the years, I've attended sever- al funerals for some of these friends who lost their battle against breast cancer, but my life has been forever changed by the courage and grace with which these pink warriors faced death. As a result of having had breast cancer, my outlook on life has changed somewhat.... I've always been an optimist, but now, every day I awaken is a cause for celebration, and each year I am cancer-free is a wonderful milestone.... life is precious! As a pink warrior. I try always to remember that cancer is a word and not a sentence!!
I have been extremely blessed, and consider myself indeed fortunate to be a breast cancer survivor. I cele- brated my years as a survivor by participating in the Race for the Cure for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation of Little Rock, Arkansas last fall. 17,000 par- ticipants including hundreds of "pink warriors" along with family and friends, finished the 5K race.... this was truly an emotional and inspira- tional event, as we wore the names of friends who had lost their battle against breast can- cer, on our backs coming

Guidelines for Detecting Breast Cancer Early The earlier breast cancer is found,
the better the chances for successful treatment. Because early breast cancer does not produce symptoms, it's important for all women to follow the guidelines for finding breast cancer
early. These include a regular mammogram, a clinical breast examination and a breast self examination.
Mammography
A mammogram is an x-ray of the breast done with a special type of machine. The breast is squeezed between two plates for a few seconds while pictures are taken. Very low levels of radiation are used. While many people are worried about exposure to x-rays, the low level of radiation used for mammograms does not significantly increase the risk for breast cancer. For example, a woman who has radiation as treatment for breast cancer will receive several thousand rads, the unit that measures radiation. If a woman has yearly mammograms beginning at age 40 and continuing until she is 90, she will have received only 10 rads The American Cancer Society recom- mends that all women age 40 and older have a mammogram every year. The doctor may suggest earlier screen- ing if you have a history of breast cancer in your family.
Clinical Breast Examination
You should have a breast exam by a doctor, nurse, or other health professional every year if you are 40 or over. If you are between 20 and 39, you should get this exam every three years. The doctor will gently feel your breast and also examine the area under both arms.
Breast Self Examination
If you are 20 years old or older, you should examine your breasts every month. By doing this, you will become aware of any unusual changes in your breasts. You should see your doctor if you notice any of these changes: a lump or swelling, skin irritation or dimpling, nipple pain or the nipple turning inward, redness or scaliness of the nipple or breast skin, or leakage (other than breast milk). Most lumps are not cancer, but all lumps should be checked out by a doctor.
For more information, contact the American Cancer Society at 1-800-ACS-2345 www.cancer.org.
or visit their website at
the race and having supporters smiling, shaking our hands, offering congratulations, is a special memory.... I will run this race again!!!
Along with 500 women from throughout our state, I recent- ly had the privilege of attend- ing IN THE PINK, a lun- cheon in Little Rock sponsored by the Arkansas Affiliate of the Komen Foundation. As the musical artist, Clarissa Dane sang "We Will Always Survive", pink carnations were given to
each breast cancer survivor present. This beautiful song, included on the CD "Friends For Life" that Clarissa, along with many greats including Diana Ross, Aretha Franklin, Lionel Richie, Amy Grant and Olivia Newton John, is being sold with a portion of the pro- ceeds going to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and Cap Cure, the Association for the Cure of Cancer of the Prostate.
The highlight of the luncheon was hearing Dr. Steven Harms, Internationally renowned
Professor and Director of Imaging Research, Department of Radiology, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences talk about his research for breast cancer. Laser lumpec- tomies are now being done at UAMS as part of a clinical trial, with great success. Dr. Harms states " there is great promise that in the future, breast cancer can be treated without surgery... maybe it can be treated while it is still in the breast!" He said that tumors 1 cm or smaller can be treated now with the laser

lumpectomy instead of surgery.. .there is no cosmetic defect as a result of this...no evidence that breast cancer was ever there! He shared with us that the television show, Dateline, will follow one of the laser lumpectomy patients at UAMS next fall.
He also said that 89% of the women whose breast cancer
tumors measured 1 cm or smaller are free of cancer at 20 vears out! This was an exciting bit of information which reinforces the need for early detection!
Our local hospital, St. Bernards Regional Medical Center, received a grant from the Susan Komen Foundation to provide worksite mammog- raphy- A mobile unit has been purchased, and thus far, approximately 600 women have received mammograms at
the plants where they are employed. Breast cancer was discovered in 5 of the women tested.... early detection and treatment offer the best chance of surviving breast cancer!!
Please perform your breast self-examinations on a regu- lar basis, and have that yearly mammogram....it may save your life!!
Why aren't more women worried! about Breast Cancel
They should be. Often, it is easier to make excuses or play offfears about the screening process. Theseexcusesarenomatchforthetruth:
"Breast Cancer Isn't In my Family"
Family history is a risk, but 80% of women who get breast cancer have no family history.
"I'm Too Old to get Breast Cancer"
The risk increases with age. By the time a woman reaches her mid sixties, her risk has doubled from age 40.

Over the past ten years, the methods of communication have undergone unimag- inable change; and we are pleased to report that AOFI is a leader among Greek organizations in this area. State of the art, integrated computer systems link AOFI HQ to our chapters and members with the tap of a few keys. The AOFI website was one of the first of its kind, and this fall the Fraternity will launch on-line reporting. We will be the first Greek organization to offer this long desired opportunity. Our Fraternity magazine, To Dragma, and all other publications are now produced in-house saving both time and money. Our technology needs require more space.
Over the past ten years, the AOFI archives has multiplied as the Fraternity has made concerted efforts to better preserve our past In 1992, the scope of what we classi- fied as archival materials expanded. Before that time, most of the items related

Over the past ten years, the AOfl Emporiumhasgrownbyover600%mak- ing it the third largest in volume and the largest in sales per member of all the NPC merchandising programs. In 1989, the Emporium was managed by one staff member who also held other job responsi- bilities and brought in revenues of $40,000. This year the Emporium has brought in revenue of $260,000 and is operated by two full time and two part time staff members. Revenue from the Emporium goes directly back into AOEI to hind training and educational programs for our members. Our Emporium needs more space.
Over the past ten years, our membership has grown by approximately 25,000 mem- bers pushing our total initiated member- ship over 110,000. Staff has increased from 14 employees i n 1989 to 27 i n 1999. AOfl maintains one of the most profes- sional staffs in the National Panhellenic Conlerence, trained to service the ever growing needs of our chapters and mem- bers. Our growth requires more space.
In short, we have vastly outgrown our current home. A feasibility study was conducted on the current Headquarter's facilities and determined that moving to
another location would be more cost effective than attempting to add on to our current building. The lack of avail- able surrounding land, the current build- ing configuration, and the city building codes requirements were all unsur- mountable obstacles to renovation. If our current Headquarters building would sell at fair market value, profes- sional counsel advised us that would be the best course of action. The market conditions this spring were perfect and the building did sell, without ever being officially placed on the market. The new owners are leasing the building back to us for one year to enable us time to com- plete our new home.
The site which has been selected is locat- ed in the scenic area of Maryland Farms in the town of Brentwood, just south of Nashville, Tennessee, and only a couple miles from the current building, ft offers plenty of space for our current needs and has plenty of room for future expansion.
This new building is central to the future of our Fraternity. With this new home, Alpha Omicron Pi will be able to keep pace with the ever growing demands from our members for new programs and ser- vices. It is right that our members should demand excellence from us, and we are prepared to meet these expectations. Initial plans project completion of the building by the summer of next year. We hope you will help us make this dream become a reality. More information will be forthcoming.

To keep moral high during rush, members present "Secret Stella" gifts during the week. From pandas, to flowers, to encouraging notes, these anonymous gifts express appre- ciation for individual contributions to the chapter. Similarly, each week, we award a "Sister of the Week." Members write notes of thanks when a sister does something nice for them. They are read in chapter meeting, and one name is drawn for a small gift

At Beta Tau, we have a tradition called "pass the candle." It not only builds sisterhood, but boosts chapter moral. Each girl takes a turn to hold the candle and express her feel- ings about AOFI. Though this can be quite emotional, we leave with the feeling that our bond as sisters has been renewed and rein- forced. Another tool is our Inspiration Book, which is given to a different girl every week. The new entry is read at the end of weekly meeting and sends us off on a positive note.

Several times during the year, we "Pass the Panda". Only the sister holding panda may speak. This allows each sister the opportunity to tell the others how much they mean to her or share a story. Each week we write happy notes and jokes to each other in the Rosebag. They are read aloud at the end of the meeting and everyone enjoys this sisterhood tune. The chapter also has a sister of the week jour- nal that is passed along from sister to sis- ter. A passage is written about a special sister and presented to her during meet- ing. This girl then chooses the next recip- ient and the tradition continues.

Thank you from Gamma Delta Chapter
"On behalf of all the ladies of Gamma Delta Chapter (U of South Alabama), I would like to thank the Foundation for supporting our chapter and allowing us to make the donation of a tens unit to a local child with juvenile arthritis. This contribution kicked off a very successful Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Week. Our chapter sponsored a causal day where busi- ness women and men in Mobile wore "Kids Get Arthritis, Too!" shirts to work. We raised $5,670 and raised awareness in Mobile about JA Our chapter awarded Eva Maloy the tens unit at our Founders' Day Luncheon. We appreciate all that the Foundation continuously does, not just for our chapter, but for AOFI's spirit of charity."
Alpha love, Kellie Galloway

Helen's Heart
Third in a series of hand-painted porcelain boxes designed exclusively for Alpha Omicron Pi.
"Helen's Heart" is appropriately named after Helen St Clair Mullan who coura- geously rallied to forever adapt to the need and expectations of those closest to her. Helen was very generous in giving love and sympathy to others while almost never ask- ing for sympathy herself Her keen mind has left its imprint on AOFI, as well. Helen's kindness and generosity will live on and "Helen's Heart will be a constant reminder of her life as one of our esteemed Founders of Alpha Omicron Pi.
Each precious "Helen's Heart" porcelain box is a treasure-trove of handpainted detail with the Greek letters AOFI inscribed in gold on the inside of the box. When you invest in a Limoges box, you reward your- self with a piece of art unparalleled for its craftsmanship and charm.
"Helen's Heart" is being produced on a pre- order basis. If you wish to reserve a box, send (beck or call to place a credit card purchase, and the Limoges box will be mailed to you upon its arrival at the Foundation office.
The cost of "Helen's Heart" is $135 plus shipping and handling. Make check payable to Alpha Omicron Pi

a major role in my life ' select those that give me pro- action, positive feedback and
long term personal rewards."
Service is a word upon which we place great value - personally and as an organization. There is not a successful venture or organization that does not employ it And if you were to com- pare the mission statements of Greek letter organizations you would see "service to others" as a bond common to all.
Meaningful service is the giving of oneself to others through one-on-one, hands-on experi- ences. In doing so, we build relationships with others and develop within us character, humil- ity, compassion and perspective on life. When the Foundation expanded our philanthropy to include the AJAO, we wanted to provide an avenue for chapters and individuals to become actively engaged in hands-on service to others. We invite you to share those experiences with the Foundation, so we in turn can share your successes with others.
Service is love in action and is an outward expression of our belief in the principles and ideals of our sisterhood In an article I recently read, Philip White stated, "Service does not dimin- ish us. It unites us. It enhances the whole. In service, we become immersed in the life of humankind. We choose to join with others in creating more life.. .for all."

Because you asked...
Alumnae Membership
How to stay
connected
Just what does
Alpha Omicron Pi
offer our alumnae
members today?
Membership in AOI1 provides friendship, personal enrichment, and professional networking opportunities, plus it enables you to develop leadership qualities, partic- ipate in community service projects, and assist our collegiate members. It also allows you to be personally involved in the continuation and growth of the organiza- tion to which you made a lifetime pledge on the day of your initiation.
The following are answers to the most commonly asked questions about joining the active alumnae ranks of AOIT:
• How do I find out if there
is an alumnae chapter in
my area?
The easiest way, is to peruse the list of alumnae chapters in this issue of To
Dragma. The name of each alumnae chapter president is listed with her phone number. Take the time, now, to call her and inquire about your local alumnae chapter. The list of alumnae chapters can also be found on the AOfl website.
• Why doesn't my alumnae
chapter ever contact me?
Almost all of our active alumnae chapters send out a newsletter to ALL of the alum- nae within a thirty-mile radius at least once a year. This newsletter usually includes a chapter update, calendar for the year, dues information, survey, etc. This is your chance to respond! Many of our chapters have hundreds of alumnae residing in their area and cannot afford to continually mail to those who never respond. Many of our alumnae chapters also contact the alumnae in their area via phone. W hen a local AOF1 alumna calls you, she is calling to extend an invitation to a chapter meeting or to inform
you of alumnae chapter happenings. This is another opportunity for you to respond - ask questions about the alumnae chapter and find out how easy it is to become an involved member.
• How can I keep in touch
if there is not an alumnae
chapterinmyarea?
We encourage you to organize an alumnae chapter in your area. The process is clear- ly detailed in our Alumnae Chapter Start- up Kit A ntinimum ofthree members is necessary to start an alumnae chapter. Each forming alumnae chapter is assigned an Alumnae Network Extension Specialist who will assist you every step of the way.
• Although it was a terrific experience, AOil membership took up a lot of time when
I was in college. Where am
I supposed to find the time forfull-time involvement
in AOIT now that I have so
many others things going
on in my life?
Active alumnae chapter membership does not require full-time involvement. Each member is different and chooses varying levels of involvement in her chapter. Some members enjoy taking on leadership roles and holding offices in the chapter, others prefer to attend only for the social aspects, while others prefer to support their local chapter financially and pay dues. Whatever level of involvement you

chose for yourself is up to you. Our alum- nae chapters usually meet anywhere from four to twelve times per year. Meetings are often held on rotating days at varying times to accommodate the schedules of their members.
• I would love to remain involved in AOI1, but my local alumnae chapter does not meet my needs. What can I do?
If your local alumnae chapter is not pro- viding the programming and/or support you are looking lor, it is up to you to let the chapter officers know this. Contact the chapter president and gently suggest ways to improve or change the current atmosphere. She will be grateful for your input.
• How do I know what kind of
involvement my heal alumnae
chapter is lookingfor?
Each of our alumnae chapters operates independently and has its own needs. One alumnae chapter might need some- one with some writing expertise to pre- pare its chapter history, while another might need someone with some publish- ing skills to compile the chapter newslet- ter. Many times an alumnae chapter is looking for someone with a profession or talent and willing to share it with others at a chapter meeting. Again, the best way for you to find out what your local chap- ter needs is for you to contact the alum- nae chapter president in your area and inquire.

• Start an AOFI alumnae chapter if there is not one in your area.

• Complete a Volunteer Application Form and submit it to the Human Resources Committee.
During the 1997-99 biennium, 20 alum- nae chapters were added to the roles of Alpha Omicron Pi's active chapters. This is an encouraging statistic that indicates a growing dedication to our lifetime com- mitment among our AOFI alumnae. Won't you accept the challenge to honor the voluntary vows you made on the day of your initiation? Make 1999, the last year of the millennium, the year you chose to renew your bond with the sister- hood of Alpha Omicron Pi. Now that is something to celebrate!

I heard the good news. My office mate was laughing at me. I just can't tell you what a feel- ing it is to know we are going back to re- establish that chapter, which has meant so much to me
and to all Rho AOITs. Now, I'm starting to cry again! P^ase forward this to the staff and thank
February 6,1999. Also attending the luncheon were members of the Lehigh Valley Alumnae Chapter, the Rucks County Alumnae Chapter, and the Central New Jersey Alumnae Chapter. It was an honor to have Linda Peters Collier, AOn International President, as our guest speaker. Carol Miller Stevenson, (Foundation Roard) and Karen Galehan (ANS) were also present
Texas State Day
donated $250 to the Endowment Fund of the AOn Foundation through the sale of Texas Lone Star Tributes to honor our sisters. Plans include making this an annual or bian- nual event If you were initiated into a Texas collegiate chapter or were a long time Texas alumnae chapter mem- ber and no longer reside in Texas, please contact us so we can invite you next time. Contact Kathy Jensen, ANS
Zoo Atlanta is a success!
The Atlanta Alumnae Chapter of Alpha Omicron Pi raised $23,000forZoo Atlanta's Chinese Forest Exhibitforgiantpandas. It is the first fund raiser to be held to raise money for the pandas' new home.
Thefirstannual "Roses to the Rescue" fund raiser was held on Saturday, March 6,1999 at the Atlanta Athletic dub. More than 350 guests, including Zoo Atlanta's President and CEO, Dr. Terry Maple, attended the sit-down dinner/silent auction and enjoyed dancing and music by Gwen Hughes and the Retro Jazz Rand.
"We were very pleased with the over- whelming support of AOITs Roses to the Rescue fund raiser," said Jenny Duffy, event chair.
"We will continue to helpDr.MapleandZoo Atlanta with their efforts to help save pandas from extinction."
The Chinese Forest Exhibit at Zoo Atlanta is expected to open in the fall of 1999 withapair ofgiantpandas. Itis only one of three zoos in the country to have the giant pandas. Today, less than 1,000 of the ani- mals remain on Earth.
Rho Alumnae Have ReasonTo Celebrate!
"I am so excited! When I talked to my alumnae chapter Wednesday night about the Northwestern presenta-
tion, 1 told them that they would have to scrape me oft'the ceiling if we were selected to recolonize. I think I have now gone through the ceiling and am already up in the clouds! I did feel kind of funny crying here at work after
everyone who worked onthepresentationfor me. We will certainly do our best here to help out in every way we can.
In my opinion, this is certainly a glorious
day for AOFI, and Iam so proud!
Alpha love, Nancy dark

You all hold such a special place in my heart and I can not

imagine my life without you in it. It may be my maturity since college, or my wonderful appre- ciation of life through motherhood, or my desire to give to com- munity spirit; but what- ever it is that makes me feel like a part of some- thing greater than myself must be a com- bination of God, my family and AOFI...
Anyway, I just had to let you know how I feel about all of you and what our Fraternity means to me, because life is far too short to keep great feelings like that inside!
Central New Mexico A C Installed
The Central New Mexico Alumnae Chapter celebrated its installation on October 17,1998 at the
Albuquerque home of Suzanne Baty Fickel. Bonnie Berger, ANES, presided as Installing Officer and conducted an officer workshop. Eleven alumnae became Charter Members of the new chapter. Outofapprox. 90 alumnae living in the area, 30 have already expressed interest in joining.
