Phi Beta Psi chapter elects officers


Officers for the 2018-19 sorority year were elected when Theta Omega chapter of Phi Beta Psi sorority met April 16 at the American Legion Annex in Seymour.

Kalee Alberring was elected to serve as president. Other officers are first vice president, Joan Trimpe; second vice president, Cori Vaughn; treasurer, Janet Cooper; corresponding secretary, Jo Pfaffenberger; reporter, Doris Baurle; and conductress, Jackie Hill. Alberring soon will name recording secretary, parliamentarian, scholarship chairman and the advisory board.

Installation of the officers will be conducted at the May 21 business meeting at the Community Foundation of Jackson County in Seymour.

The members arranged the tables for basket bingo being conducted the following night, and the work committees were read.

The committee for the May 18 and 19 food tent at the Hen & Chicks Barn Market is chaired by Dana Byrkett and Hill, along with Joey King, Bobbie Sue Sweany and Trimpe.

Alberring talked about the Chicago bus trip June 9. The cost is $75 per person. Tickets are available from all members; however, seats are limited to one bus. Departure will be at 6 a.m. from the Seymour Walmart Supercenter parking lot.

Trimpe reported on the scholarship committee. A thank-you was read from Shane Tormoehlen and family. The sorority will again sponsor a high school representative to Hoosier Girls State this summer. This year, Theta Omega will sponsor two fair queen candidates — Lucy Cooper and the February cancer dance queen, Bailey Lewis.

Hill won the THETO.

The next meeting will be initiation and dinner for four women at 6:30 p.m. today at the Fraternal Order of Police Donald M. Winn Lodge 108 in Freeman Field.
