A note about our National Day of Service "Dr. Seuss" Party

Pi Phis,

Please bring to the Beaux and Arrow at Julie Clark’s on February 8th a First Chapter Book for the children at the Salvation Army’s Boys’ and Girls’ Club.

For our National Day of Service on Friday, February 27, 2009, we are going to have our Dr. Seuss party at the Salvation Army Corps' Worship Center (located at 821 South Aycock Street) at 3 pm. Our goal is to give each child attending a book to take home. A critical factor in whether or not a child becomes a reader is access to books in the home.

I shopped for First Chapter Books at BOOK.A.MILLION. Series include: Fanny K. Stein for ages 7 – 10 ($4.99); Cam Jansen for ages 7 and up ($3.99); Junie B. Jones, reading level 2.1 – 2.7 ($4.99); Magic Tree House, reading level 2.2 and up ($3.99); books by J.C. Greenburg for reading level 2 – 3.2 ($3.99) and by Dan Gutman for 7 – 10 years ($3.99). The Intermediate Series include books by Beverly Cleary for ages 8 – 12 and by Geronimo Stilton for reading level 3, and The Secrets of Droon reading level 3, Beast Quest reading level 3, Captain Underpants for 7 – 10 years, Ricky Ricotta and Encyclopedia Brown for ages 7 and up. These are a few recommended as popular by a lady working there.

If you can’t make the dinner on the 8th, books can be dropped off at my house – 3525 Spicebush Trail. They can be left on a bench in my carport by the back door.

Thank you so much for your support.

Joy

Hi. I'm a Pi Phi from Indiana ( Indiana Eta). I've recently relocated to Greensboro to live with my fiance and start my career. I'm interested in the local Alumnae chapter and wonder if I could find out some more about it. My chapter sisters have scattered around the midwest and around the country and I'm starting over in Greensboro without knowing anyone. I miss the friendship that I found among my sisters. Could someone tell me more about this chapter? I'm not even sure what kind of alumnae dues I need to pay to join any clubs. I would love some info. Your chapter looks great and I love the philanthropies you're all involved in. Great job! In Pi Phi- Gina Cloe gmcloe83@hotmail.com
