Seymour associate chapter of Tri Kappa met Oct. 14 at Stahl’s Deli in Brownstown.
Sixteen members and one guest attended.
Following the dinner, Sandy Kovener, a member of the Bloomington Spinners and Weavers Fiber Art Guild, was introduced by Nita Bridges. Kovener presented an informative program using different types of dyes for natural materials. She invited the members to the guild’s 29th annual Fiber Art Show and Sale, which was Nov. 14 and 15 at the Bloomington Monroe County Convention Center.
Vice President Nancy Erp conducted the business meeting with reports presented by recording secretary Cecily Noelker, treasurer Kathy Mead and corresponding secretary Nita Bridges.
Bridges reported on the Riley Cheer volunteer luncheon she attended in June at Brickyard Crossing Golf Course in Indianapolis. She informed the members of the second annual American Girl Fashion Show this month. The event, sponsored by Tri Kappa, is a fundraiser to benefit the toy room at Riley Hospital for Children.
Dana Bollinger informed the group of a new project this year, “Barb’s Scarves.” A cancer survivor in Louisville started the charity collecting scarves for women following chemotherapy. Bollinger asked the chapter to donate scarves in memory of Barb Guthrie and also to make others’ lives better.
Outstanding Tri Kappa sisters honored were Terrye Davidson, inductee to the Brownstown Central High School Hall of Fame; Kathy Mead, retiring member of the board of directors for Oktoberfest; Ruth Ann Rebber, community involvement with Seymour Main Street; Bollinger, winner of Dancing with the Stars fundraiser; and Joan Kreinhagen, supporting grandmother of Emily Hume, a heart-transplant recipient this year.
Erp announced Jan Warren would be the new publicity chairman, and Laura Kirtley is transferring her membership to the associate chapter.
To conclude the evening, members selected pumpkins for fall decorating that were donated by Jerry and Libby Roberts.
The next meeting will be Dec. 9 at Cupid’s Arrow in Seymour. Members are encouraged to bring a donation for the Christmas basket.
