Phi Beta Psi sorority conducts meeting

The Theta Omega chapter of Phi Beta Psi sorority combined its social and business meetings for April and recently met at the Community Foundation of Jackson County in Seymour.

Social hostesses Jamie Mathis, Alice Christopher and Tracey Phillips served meat appetizers, a vegetable assortment, dips, chips and a fruit tray to the 23 members present.

President Jackie Hill was assisted by recording secretary Dana Byrkett and treasurer Janet Cooper. Cooper is collecting member dues, which must be paid by the end of May.

Sign-up sheets were passed around for the upcoming bingo featuring Longaberger baskets and pottery, gift cards and Thirty-One bags April 18 at the Seymour American Legion annex.

Doors open at 6 p.m., and bingo begins at 7 p.m. Food will be served. Tickets are $20 and may be purchased from any member. Proceeds will go to cancer research, the sorority’s national project.

The membership A through L is responsible for door prizes and/or Chinese auction gifts.

Joan Trimpe reported on the Indiana state project, supported by dues and donations, which is a scholarship for a student of medical technology.

The Chicago bus trip has been set for June 24. Tickets are $75.

Hill asked for several names to be placed on the prayer list.

Door prizes were presented to Jan Robinson, Cori Vaughn and Byrkett. Doris Baurle won the THETO.

More than $400 was collected when the hostesses conducted the annual Spirit Club red and white team auction. This has helped to defray expenses when the losing team entertains the winners in June. To date, the score for the red team is 358 while the white team’s score is 426.
