Beta Sigma Phi sorority holds gatherings


Ada —

Member Judy Kurz hosted the October meeting in her newly renovated, 1940s era home. While modernized, it has still retained its distinctive charm and character. After a spicy buffet of a variety of Mexican dishes, the meeting began. Juanita Sutton Green updated the treasurer's report. 

As the new Scrapbook chairperson, Jean Kelly extended a request for sharing of photographs, travel and cultural brochures, and other print items of memorabilia. Pauline Rodke was welcomed by the members as a prospective transfer member. Cola, the Kurz's feisty little Dachshund, entertained the gathered ladies and received his share of goodies! As in years past, the sisters agreed to support the Ada Teen's Angel program with clothing purchases for a teen in need at Ada Junior High School. Bobby Darbison offered to shop for the items. Bobbye Darbison also received a birthday surprise from her Secret Sister during the meeting.

The October social gathering was moved to early November. The sorority sisters, spouses, family members, and friends met at Oak Hills Country Club for a lovely supper followed by several fun games of Bunco. Donations were gathered to support a fundraising project for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation by Mitchell Kurz, grandson of the evening's hosts, Judy and Cleve Kurz.

In November, the sisters of Preceptor Delta Phi met at the home of Carol Winton. A sympathy card had been sent to Carol and Wiley Winton after the passing of Wiley's brother. Abby Phillips received a letter and pioneer pin from Beta Sigma Phi International for placing the chapter on Facebook!  After her monthly report, Treasurer Juanita Sutton Green requested any outstanding paid receipts for reimbursement. The schedule of meetings and socials was revised for the new year. 

Lucille Collins shared several previously requested recipes. Pauline Rodke completed paperwork for her change in membership status to the Ada chapter. A lovely candlelit ceremony was held to bestow the Master's Degree on Bobbye Darbison.
