Phi Beta Psi gathers for meeting


Tribune Staff Reports

Theta Omega chapter of Phi Beta Psi sorority’s monthly business meeting was Feb. 18 at the Community Foundation of Jackson County in Seymour.

President Kalee Alberring, assisted by Angi Reynolds, Dana Byrkett, Stephanee Squires-Roberts, Jo Pfaffenberger, Desiree Hall and Janet Cooper, led the meeting attended by 17.

The 2019 dance committee reported on the recent gala where Molly Baurle was named queen. The seven Seymour High School seniors collected a record amount of $23,035. A motion was made to send the sorority’s national project — cancer research — $26,000.

Proceeds from the two raffle baskets amounted to $1,900 and went to benefit Jackson County resident Bill Nowland, a young family man diagnosed with esophageal cancer. He just completed chemotherapy and radiation and expects to have surgery this spring.

Spirit Club totals were given: Red team 1,098 and white team 1,231. Taryn Rockey and Byrkett will be serving as the committee for nomination of officers. The election will be April 15.

Because of Ash Wednesday, the next meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. March 5 at Bullwinkle’s Family Restaurant. Prospective members’ names will be submitted.

Upcoming events are the spring Small Town Bingo on April 16 and the food tent at the Hen and Chicks Barn Market on May 17 and 18. Initiation will be May 1 at Fraternal Order of Police Donald M. Winn Lodge 108.

Rockey won the THETO.

An interest was shown by several members in attending the national convention July 18 through 20 in Tacoma, Washington. Adrienne Hatton of Columbus, the national first vice president, has been busy with plans as the sorority members “Climb Every Mountain” in their quest for a cure for cancer.
