ALPHA DELTA KAPPA NEWS & NOTES

AUGUST-2006

Texas Beta Lambda Newsletter

District V

Publisher Patsy Green    Volume 1    Issue Number 1    Date August 14, 2006

Back to School News

Can you believe, summer vacation is nearly over?  I hope you had a wonderful restful time.  I can hardly wait to visit with several of you about your tours and cruises.  And I know some of you feel relieved and fulfilled that you have had time to clean out closets and cabinets.  Aren't breaks nice?
          I was able to attend both the State Convention in Waco and the Regional Conference in Springfield,
MO. Thank you for your support that enable me to attend both of these.  Hopefully, I learned at State the information to guide us through a successful biennium. Regional was a fantastic conference on leadership. I recommend a Regional Conference for all who are in a leadership role at sorority, school, church or wherever. 
          By the time you read this, many of you will already be back at work.  I wish for you a calm, peaceful year with lots of mountain tops to help you get through the valleys that will come. Have a GREAT YEAR!

                        TEACHER
God took one pair of angel wings
And patience without measure,
Two eyes that see potential,
Great wisdom from His treasure,
A smile to give encouragement-

A truly heavenly feature...
He wrapped it up with tender care

And called this gift a "TEACHER"

 FIRST MEETING

Our first meeting of this biennium will be Monday, August 28 at 6:30 P.M. We will be meeting in the Choir Suite at Mobberly Baptist Church on Loop 281 (If you need directions call Carolyn Wynn or me.)  I hope you can be there.  Our program will be presented by a young lady who has Spina Bifida.  Spina Bifida is our new State Altruistic project.  We will also have a brief report about the State Convention and Regional Conference which were attended by Patsy Green. 

SUPER IMPORTANT! We will have a pledge ceremony to pledge Jayne Craig (we voted on last spring). Because of circumstances we were unable to pledge her last year.

FEBRUARY NEWS-2007

Hi Everybody,

Well, if you missed the last meeting, you missed another fantabulous meeting.  We were thrilled to initiate Jayne and welcome her as a new member.  Then we enjoyed some delicious soups and salads, and of course great desserts.  MMMMMMM good.

Our next meeting is Monday,  February 26--6:30 at ALPINE CHURCH OF CHRIST.   Please note that this is a change in location.  Its not much of a change.  Go to the Loop and head toward Mobberly Baptist Church.  If you are traveling east, get in the right hand turn lane right after you go under the Eastman Road (259) bridge.  Look up.  You will see the new water tower.  Immediately past the tower there is a drive that goes up the hill beside the water tower.  Turn there.  As you get to the top of the hill, you will see a parking lot in front of you and one to your left.  Turn into the lot on the left and follow it all the way to the flag pole and the covered entrance.  Park near the covered entrance (if you look down, you will see Mobberly).  Enter through the double doors under the covered entrance and walk all the way to the end of the hall.  You're there.  Please try to be on time since I will have the Sgt. at Arms stationed at the locked doors.

Remember that this is our joint meeting with Theta.  Carolyn has come up with another great program.  We will have a humorist speaking to us.  We will have the financial planner at a later date ( Theta has already had a financial speaker--therefore, the change.)

    If you would like to help with refreshments, contact Rhonda, Yvonne, Sharon, or Rachel.  If you can help, give them a call.

    Happy birthday to : Cecelia - Feb. 12     Chloe - Feb. 17    Janice - Feb. 21

    Reflections of ADK:  Mary    Peggy   Shirley

 Counting on a good turn out.  Let's make Beta Lambda proud.  If you get lost, call 903-746-4026. 

Peggy wants to remind our members of the importance of bringing their altruistic reports to the meeting Monday or mailing it to her next week.  You understand the importance of everyone doing one and how if reflects on our chapter report.   Please remember to bring your report.


 APRIL A.D.K. Newsletter

Publisher         Patsy Green                 Volume Number      9                            Issue Number             April  2007

SPRING IS HERE!  (Maybe) 

How have you liked these nice crisp mornings?  I love the cool breeze and the chirping birds.  Our tomatoes, though, would love some warmer weather.  But after last year, I am so thankful for Godís blessings of rain and cooler weather. 

APRIL MEETING 

Can you believe, our last meeting of the year is upon us.  We will meet on Monday, April 23  at 6:30 pm.  Back to our meeting place at Mobberly Baptist Choir Suites on the Loop.  Be sure to be there for the fellowship, program on relaxation (massages), and planning for the GARAGE SALE. 

We have had absolutely fantabulous programs this year.  If you missed any, you missed a treat.  Donít  miss this last one. Caroline did a super job this year.  Be sure to give her a hug and a thank you for  a job well done.

DISTRICT V MEETING 

Marian, Janice, Linda Ann, and I traveled to Marshall/Elysian Fields to the District Spring Meeting.  As usual, the Carthage sisters did an absolutely fabulous job hosting the meeting. 

The Council voted to increase the District dues for next year by $1.  That will make District dues $4 per person for the 2007-2008 year.  If the need arises to reconsider that increase, it will be discussed at next springís meeting.  As you may recall, when I placed this matter before you in November, our membership agreed to a $2 increase.  At our April meeting we will address how you wish to handle this increase. 

The fall District meeting will be the first Saturday in October in Nacogdoches.  Start now to make plans to reserve that Saturday for a fun, informative trip.  The more the merrier.

NEWS & NOTES 

I tried to forward the News and Notes to everyone, but some of you said you could not open yours.  Sorry, technology is so wonderful it keeps everyone screwed up.   

Of course, most of the stateís focus at this time is toward the International  Convention in San Diego, CA .  Iíd love to have several of you join me on a trip out there.  I have a room reserved with a harbor view.  Texas will host a Texas breakfast and a Texas reception.  An of course, District Vís own Ann Hudson will be installed as International President. Yea, Ann! 

REFLECTIONS OF ADK will be shared by Katie , Cecilia, and Janice.
