Delta Delta ESA kicks off sorority year


Staff Reports

The Delta Delta chapter of Epsilon Sigma Alpha met virtually Sept. 1 with Mary Anne Schneider presiding.

Schneider’s theme for the year is “Be a Rainbow in Someone Else’s Cloud.”

The chapter welcomed back former member Pam Vogel. Educational Director Barb Grant shared seven fun facts about Zoom.

Philanthropic co-chairs Sammi Jones and Jan Engel reported on the year’s upcoming fundraisers, including mum sales with a $1,000 goal going to various charities, including St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Camp Riley, Anna’s Celebration of Life, Easter Seals and local organizations. Mum delivery is Sept. 17.

Other projects may include Hope for Heroes coupons and overseas boxes, craft days, geranium sales in the spring and ESA One Step One Miracle Relay for Life fundraisers.

Engel invited members to the Starry Night Luminaria Ceremony from 6 to 9 p.m. Sept. 12 at First Baptist Church in Seymour.

The chapter already has deposited more than $2,000 from a July golf outing co-hosted with the Beta Kappa chapter to benefit Camp Riley.

Ways and means chairwoman Julia Aker said the committee will coordinate Rada Cutlery sales over the next couple of months. Sales past $300 will go toward the chapter’s philanthropic projects.

The chapter is hosting the spring conference on March 20, 2021, at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Seymour.

Member Stacey Brummett will be installed Sept. 12 as state corresponding secretary for former Delta Delta member and state President Brenda Campbell. Grant and Dee Hess will serve as state scrapbook chairs.

The next meeting is at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 6 via Zoom. The Avon chapter will host the fall conference on Nov. 7 at Sahara Grotto.
