Alpha Tau chapter meets
The September meeting of the Alpha Tau chapter, Alpha Delta Kappa International Honorary for Women Educators was held at Tomlinson Run State Park. The meeting was called to order by President Diane Bowers. The Thought for the Day, in remembrance of 9/11, was given by Fran Jones.
Secretary Velda Icard read the minutes of the May meeting and June Executive Board meeting which were approved by the group. She also read several items of correspondence. Jones gave the financial report including a discussion of dues payment options. It was decided to do a program at the October meeting to assist those who would like to make their payments online.
Under new business, members discussed the celebration of Founders Day, which is held every October. Altruistic projects were also discussed including filling Christmas Shoe Boxes. More information will be distributed at the next meeting. Hostess committees were assigned and locations for upcoming meetings were determined.
Hostesses for the Welcome Back/Fifties Fun Social were Amy Hannahs and Pam Robinson. The members enjoyed participating in Hula Hoop contests, bubble gum bubble blowing competitions, and ’50s trivia. Refreshments were root beer floats.
The next meeting will be held Oct. 12 at the Swaney Memorial Library.
