New Business: Pam Fischer is in charge of college members. Pam would like everybody to start bringing in items for goody bags that we will send to our college members during Spring finals. We have eight Tri Kappa girls that are currently in college. April told the group that the Christmas in the Park committee would like to purchase our angel if we would like to sell it. The group talked about it and decided the angel has become pretty special to us and she is not for sell. The angel looks beautiful at the front of the park, with her new dress and lights. The angel does need a dry barn to stay in until next Christmas or the new welds will not hold her together for very many more years. Mary Yelton told the Tri Kappa girls that the children at the Leap Center really enjoyed the Christmas gifts. The children our working on thank you cards and she will bring them to the next meeting. Ashley Tucker got engaged at Christmas, the date will be announced at a later time.
