Founder’s Day postponed to Sat Oct 17/20

Sisters of Beta Sigma Phi,

Sadly, COVID-19 have forced us to postpone Founders Day to Saturday, October 17.

Lynne and I had to make a quick decision in order to not incur the loss of our deposit on the hall or, even worse, to have to pay for the food if we cancelled after it had been ordered. By postponing, it does not cost us anything.

We are sorry that not all of the players could be consulted but are excited to have a fall event and to know that everyone’s efforts towards the preparation for the event will not be wasted. Lynne and I will be working on it and Debbie has already completed much of her work.

Non of the cheque’s we received have been cashed and they will be returned to you.

PLEASE Save the date! We were limited in our choice of dates but this should give us time to settle into our fall chapter rhythm and not lose sisters to their fall trips south!

Stay well! See you on October 17!

Jacquie and Lynne

Message from International

From Laura Ross Wingfield today:

Today at noon, International will send our staff home and start home quarantine. We will have a skeleton staff that will come into the office once a week and handle essential items that can keep us working. We will only do business through email as we don’t have access to our phones at our homes.

Please alert your sisters that we will be working from our homes and using email only. You should use on line payment systems if at all possible and you can order and pay for gifts on line, they will process those and mail once per week so there will be some delay, so plan ahead. We are doing this with the utmost caution to make sure all of our staff are protected as much as possible and still do our work for you. I always do my email from home when I am home even in evenings and weekends so for me, it’s par for the course but others will probably have a touch of a learning curve.

Please take all cautions you can and be safe. We don’t want to lose anyone.
