Laureate Alpha Omicron Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi met recently in the home of Joann Locher. Co-hostesses were Gene Evans and Vickie Kowolik. Loretta Johnson presided.
Betty Mercer presented the program on "Traditions." She told about family traditions, such as names; going home for Christmas to the head of the family's home, which was grandma and grandpa; and her family always gathered for "coffee time" every afternoon. She urged members to make a new tradition to exercise, which not only helps your body, but strengthens your brain and can help ward off dementia and other mental problems related to aging. Mercer read an article by Walter Williams concerning democracy and the fact that the United States is a republic. She read the Texas pledge and members repeated the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag of the United States.
A thank-you note from Doctors Without Borders, for a recent donation, was read.
Louise Pletcher, parliamentarian, read from the Book of Beta Sigma on parliamentary procedure.
There will be a spaghetti supper Jan. 21 at the Locher home. The next meeting is Jan. 17 at the home of Frances Smith.
