SPRING IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER
Just like our sisters across the country, we’ve been hit by one winter storm after another this season. Thankfully, we’ve
still managed to gather – even though it required a rescheduling in January. If you missed Bunco Night at Nancy Bauman’s
or the Farmville Four luncheon, you’re in luck! There are still several opportunities join us for sisterhood.

   Saturday, February 12th at 10:30 A.M. Plan to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your sisters at our annual
    Champagne Brunch at Brio at the Greene in Kettering. This event highlights the guest speaker (and Eta Pi alumna)
    Susan Branscome and her work helping women achieving their life goals. “remembering always that the foundation
    precept of Zeta Tau Alpha was Love, „the greatest of all things‟.”

   Tuesday, March 8th at 7 P.M. Come to Carillon Park (Kettering Building, Iams Room) to hear a special
    presentation on Dayton History from their talented staff.   “to seek understanding that we might gain true wisdom...”

   Saturday, April 9th              Ohio Zeta Day -- There’s No Place Like Zeta                        Toledo, OH
    Road Trip! Who needs an excuse to hit the road and join her Zeta sisters from all over the state? Come along to
    celebrate our joys from the year and meet other alumnae and collegians. I guarantee you’ll see a few of our regulars
    and get to know our area chapters at their best.

   Tuesday, April 12th at 7 P.M. Join us at the Iota Pi House. Be sure to be prompt for Officer Elections! After a
    brief period of business, we’ll open the meeting to include our guests, collegians from Eta Pi and Iota Pi. We’ll
    perform the Senior Initiation service and enjoy sisterhood and snacks. “to have the welfare and harmony of the
    fraternity at heart...”

   Saturday, April 16th             Panhel Style Show and Luncheon                  Hope Hotel, WPAFB

   Tuesday, May 10th at 7 P.M. We’re wrapping up the year with a Scrapbooking & Pizza Party at Coldwell
    Banker-Heritage Realty in Kettering. After installing our newly elected officers and a year-end review, we’ll be
    recording all of the achievements and sisterhood of the year in our scrapbook.     “striving ever to make our lives a
    symphony of high ideals, devotion to the Right, the Good, and the True, without a discordant note…”

       21ST ANNUAL DAPA STYLE SHOW AND LUNCHEON
          Did you know that this year our ZTA delegate to the Dayton Alumnae Panhellenic Association serves as the Ways and
     Means Chair? Last year, DAPA was able to award $6,000 in scholarships because of our continued participation in the Style
     Show. Beta Delta collegian LeeAnne Cornyn was among those women recognized for outstanding academic achievement as
     well as Fraternity and community involvement. For $25 you can join over 200 area women for a sneak peak at spring
     fashions (some of them modeled by our own sisters), take a chance on a big win in the silent auction, enjoy the famous
     Chicken Supreme, and contribute to the scholarship program. And while helping collegiate women continue on their
     academic paths and supporting your Zeta sisters are worthy goals, you’re also helping our chapter win free DAPA dues for
     a second year in a row, by having the largest representation in attendance. If you can’t make it on the 16 th, consider
     “donating” your ticket, providing an item for the silent auction, or purchasing an ad in the program. Every little bit adds
     up!




       Collegiate women from Eta Pi and
       Iota Pi look pretty in pink at our
       Founder‟s Day Think Pink! Party
       in October.
