2019 Letter from our Co-Presidents Chris Anders and Beth Holmquist

Dear Savannah Pi Phis

We hope you are enjoying your summer! Our Board met in early June to begin making plans for the coming year. We have been notified by Central Office that the National Dues deadline has been moved up to October 1. We have decided to start our year earlier as well, which will give you the opportunity to pay your dues at our first meeting if you have not yet sent them in to our Vice President, Finance, Sue Souls. As a matter of fact, we have decided to have our kick-off this year on September 24 at a member’s home, and Sue offered to host it! So convenient! Thank you, Sue. The form for our dues ($45-$35 are National and $10 local) is included in this newsletter. We currently have 46 paid members and we welcome all Pi Phis to join us.

Allison Smith, Vice President, Social is already working on our programs for the year. She has found some fun events that we are sure to enjoy. The schedule is included in this newsletter. We do want to tell you now that we have decided to have a change in venue for our Christmas Luncheon. We are going to have our celebration on Thursday, December 5, at the Plantation Club in the Landings. We have the Library reserved and there will be more information at a later date. 

We continue to have a focus on literacy, and Patty Koch is once again our chairman. You will see all that we have accomplished when you read her report. We also have Ellen Atkins as our Vice President, Communications giving us enormous help with mailings, including the beautiful invitations we receive each year. We are grateful to our hardworking Board members!

See you in September!

In Wine and Silver Blue,
