#TBT Alumnae Panhellenic of Tallahassee Remix

Not sure this really counts as a Throwback Thursday ... 
it only happened in February. ha, ha

We love attending the Alumnae Panhellenic of Tallahassee Scholarship Luncheon each year. We have such fun with our own Alpha Chi Omega sisters.

This year (2013) our hearts swelled with pride again as we celebrated Libby Pace one of the Beta Eta collegians (4.0 GPA, past vp-id, past AED president, four-year DM participant, etc.!) who received (another) scholarship from @tallyaph.

Simple, but fun: You have to love a happy cake!
Accomplished AXO Alumnae! Amy Z, ETE president; Melissa, TCC professor; Joy, State of FL attorney; Karen, ED for Steve Ellis Memorial Scholarship and 5K

So many sisters - Sisterhood LOVE! Joy (Gamma Iota); Amy (Zeta Upsilon); Loni (Beta Tau and Chi O house director); Barbara (Gamma Iota); Melissa (Zeta Psi); Karen (Beta Eta); Libby (Beta Eta and scholarship winner); Lauren (Beta Eta and alumnae chair); Jenn (Theta Lambda)

Froyo for a Cause!: Refuge House

In honor of Sexual Violence Awareness Month in April, we're doing a "throwback" and highlighting the fun we had supporting Refuge House and DVAM in October!

On Saturday, October 20, 2012 Refuge House held a fundraiser at Nuberri to raise awareness about domestic violence and domestic violence awareness month;  honor victims and survivors of domestic violence; and raise funds for the shelter.

Britain and Jenn wanted to document the event (and eat froyo, OF COURSE!)
Check out Britain's blog post on Simply Southern Girl too.

Chapter Advisor Britain is always ready for a PR event with great ideas and fun.
Isn't that AX-DVA button fabulous?

Super friendly volunteers and friends of Refuge House

State Day in Florida 2013

Remember our previous post where we described State Day?

The Beta Eta collegians and Epsilon Tau Epsilon alumnae enjoyed a fun and productive day at Stetson hosted by our Gamma Chi chapter. The morning was spent learning about our Strengths and how we can focus on those to make ourselves more productive executive board members, chapter members and Alpha Chi Omega citizens. After a yummy lunch, we broke out to learn about utilizing social media, MyJourney, MissRepresentation, financial accountability and more. It was a fun day of meeting new sisters and honing our personal best to become Real. Strong. Women.
