Associate Chapter of Tri Kappa
The Associate Chapter of Tri Kappa met at Time Out Grill Dec. 3, 2012.
After a delicious buffet dinner, President Jacque Reberger called the meeting to order with the usual song and verse.
Roll call was answered by 22 members and four guests.
The minutes of the last meeting were read and approved as was the treasurer's report.
Bills were presented and approved for payment.
Members were reminded to contact Teresa McCullough when a care message needs to be sent.
Correspondence was read and Diane Reynolds thanked members for pictures and reminded them to bring to her attention any pertinent information for the chapter scrapbook.
Jacque took books from the November meeting to Shannon Willmore for the CASA program.
The books brought this evening will go to the Linking Education to Adults, Adolescents and Preschoolers (LEAAP) Center.
Mary Yelton gave a brief update on some of the programs at the LEAAP Center.
Recently, two parents received their GEDs. A desire to help their children with their school work was a major factor in their success.
Studies show that there is a positive relationship between a mother's education and her children's progress in school.
Shannon Clark from Serving On The Streets (S.O.S.) mentioned they still needed bell ringers for the holiday season at Walmart in Brazil and that S.O.S. continues to need sponsors for children.
It was reported that our S.O.S. kids received their monthly gifts and notes of encouragement.
The active chapter's Christmas Home Tour, which was very successful, was attended by several associate members.
State Convention will take place April 18-21, at the Marriot East in Indianapolis.
Reservations need to be turned in by Feb. 1, so those planning to attend need to let Jacque know as soon as possible.
Members gave donations of items and book for the LEAAP moms and books to Mary Yelton, shoes and socks to Shannon Clark for the S.O.S. program, and the usual items for the Humane Shelter.
The next meeting will be Feb. 4.
Hostesses will be Diane Reynolds, Chair, Rita Robertson and Elaine Stephens.
The program will be about the Humane Shelter and will be presented by Larry Clark.
Members are reminded to bring items for the Humane Shelter, Campbell's Soup labels, Box Tops for Education, old magazines and children's books. Thanks to this evening's committee: Luann Grey, Margie Cauldwell and Teresa McCullough.
