A couple of weeks ago Rachael attended the Open House for the NC Beta Chapter at Duke University. Their actual space on campus is a duplex in which one of the units has been turned into a common room space for the chapter and is decorated very cute!
The girls absolutely loved the flowers and were touched that you all remembered them!

So Much Exciting News to Share!
First of all . . we had a wonderful time at our 1st meeting of the season. To celebrate our heritage, we partook in a Cookie Shine. What fun it is to be a Pi Beta Phi!

                                                                                                    Thank you to everyone who collected toiletries for the Sanctuary House!
We are happy to report that HOPE academy now as a wonderful addition to their library, graphic novels were presented to the students on Wednesday, Sept. 25th from the Piedmont Pi Phi's. We look forward to our continued collaboration with the school.
 
 
DUES: If you haven't already paid your dues, you can send them to Carol Carpenter ($40). $35 goes to pay your national dues, and $5 stays with our local chapter. 

Finally - please make sure to see the newly added SILPADA link.  We are excited about our upcoming fundraiser (see calendar), but would like to offer the link now to anyone who wants to share with friends and family!  Remember . . . 30% of the profit comes directly back to support our local philanthropies.

Calling all ANGLES!
NEED:  Guardian Angels
We have some Pi Phis in the area who aren't currently active members
of our wonderful club.  I would love to put together a group of
"Guardian Angels" who can call/write these sisters to personally
invite them to our Piedmont Pi Phi meetings.

If you can be a Guardian Angel for one or two ladies, please let me
know.  Email me at Lara.Heberle@gmail.com and I'll get you a name (or
two) to personally contact.

Let's see how many new faces we can get to our "Wine & Arrow" wine
