Dear Richardson-Plano Kappa Sisters -
Happy New Year! Hope all of you had a fantastic holiday with family and friends. Richardson-Plano had a busy, fun 2018. We are looking forward to a busy, fun 2019! Hope you can make plans to join us!
This past fall we had a wonderful Welcome Back luncheon where Richardson- Plano Kappas donated 50 pounds of toiletries for Network of Community Ministries. In October, we always are thrilled to celebrate Founders Day. Honoring our milestone Kappas is always the highlight. In November, hearing about our Foundations Collegiate Assistance program from Meg Henderson, Richardson-Plano member and Collegiate Assistance board member, was informational and heartwarming. Of course, our annual Ornament Exchange is always fun! This year was special in the fact we invited college actives to join us in the fun! Lots of laughs, lots of “stealing”, but everyone leaving with a great holiday ornament or holiday decoration. January kicked off with our Favorite Things Auction. This was the first one I have ever attended and I found Richardson-Plano ladies are a wealth of information—lots of things I need to buy and try! So proud we raised over $500 for our Richardson-Plano Foundation Scholarships.
We appreciate Caroline Morgan, Jayne Davenport, Fran McQuirter, Kathleen Ray and Laura Murphy for opening their homes and serving as hostesses for our fall and winter meetings.
Mark your calendars and watch for evites for several events coming up. On February 12 at 7:00 PM, I am hosting our Valentine Meeting. This meeting we will be celebrating all of our groups Day, Wise and Night! Please bring an appetizer to share! We are sending Valentine cards to our Collegiate Chapters. March/April our Philanthropy Chairs, Molly Chandler and Judi Hamby, are planning a Reading is Fundamental (RIF) event. Watch for details. We will wrap up our year with our spring Fleur de lis Luncheon and Officer Installation. This event will be held at the Macaroni Grill at Park/Preston.
If you didn’t get a chance to join us in the Fall, please plan to join us this winter and spring! This fun, welcoming group is always looking or more fun Kappas to join them every month!
