March Updates

Next Meeting:
March 8, 2010 5:00 PM

Northwest Valley Library

Menu: Pasta Con Brocolli & Mostaciolli, Pasta House Salad, garlic bread, Mississippi Mud Cake, Tea. Cost is $9.00 Contact your Building Representative or Sherri by Friday February 26.

You will be able to order your DKG pin at this meeting. You will want to have one this fall so now is the time to get one. Ann figgenmeier will be taking the orders.

Don't forget Scholarship applications and new member initiation forms, see post below.

At the Executive meeting I formed a new committee to plan for the upcoming Joint Council Meeting in the Fall. We have 5 creative and clever members already and I would love to have anyone interested to join in on the fun. The more ideas we have, the better meeting we can produce. Let's make Gamma Tau the talk of the state as we did last time we hosted. Contact Regina (me!) if you are interested in joining us.

An assortment of items

  • You should be seeing 2 forms in your buildings. They were sent to each building contact if no representative from the building was at the February meeting. Look for the "Recommendation for Membership" and "Scholarship for Classes" forms. Both are due at the March 8th meeting.
  • Have you taken classes in the past year and would you appreciate $250 to help with the cost? Fill out the Scholarship form and return it to in the yellow evelope so it gets to the March meeting with your building representative. Click on the link in the side bar if you are not sure who that is. Do you know a non-member who could use $125 toward their tuition? They can also apply by filling in the Scholarship form and returning it to the envelope by March 5.
  • As you know I cancelled the food for the February meeting due to the National Weather Service forecast and advisories. I coulc not imagine Northwest R-1 being in session with 6 inches of snow or what I would do with chicken breasts, cassorole, salad, dinner rolls and cake for 35 people. The cost would have been $350. I appreciate all the understanding and support for my first major executive decision.
