Pi Phis Celebrate reading and Dr. Seuss

We had such fun. What a wonderful time Joy cooked up for us at the Center of Hope. We laughed and enjoyed the children and everyone there. Betsy did a most wonderful job of reading the Cat in the Hat. She made it come alive in marvelous ways! AND THE CAKE. Lots of layers and lots of fun. Jonathan came along for the ride and all had just a terrific time. Thanks a million to Joy who made it possible and all who came bringing goody bags, books, and a lot of love.
