Sigma Sigma Sigma Ever Forward
Welcoming the New Century.
Our Chapter is still growing. We are happy to announce that we have gained new members through our mail-outs, internet site and good old fashioned phone calls. It is so great to meet Sigmas in our community who are new to our Alumnae Chapter. If you have yet to make a meeting, please try to attend at least one this Spring. Why not make it a New Years Resolution to attend ONE meeting this Spring? I bet you will find it VERY SATISFYING!
National's have created a new logo to establish a consistent, recognizable image, to build greater visual identity for Tri Sigma, and to assist in reaching our growth and image goals as stated in the long range plan. The new log is three modern, platinum sails. The platinum color is an added accent to our official colors of purple and white. Ever Forward is the new slogan which shows that Tri Sigma always strives to move in a forward direction.
September 12 - BID Day at FIU.
This was a great day for the Zeta Epsilon Chapter. They extended BIDs to 24 new members. It was an exciting day. The alums who participated in this event were transported back to their college days feeling the energy and excitement in the air thanks to the members of Zeta Epsilon.
October 2nd - TGI Friday's Oak Square Mall
At this meeting we welcomed new member Christy Bales, Epsilon Nu, who contacted me through the internet. We planned for the November meeting at the Broward Partnership for the Homeless to read to the kids who lived there.
November 6th - Broward Partnership for the Homeless
Rachelle Phares, Alpha Kappa, arranged for us to read to the children who live at the Broward Partnership for the Homeless center. We all had a great experience and the kids were very excited to see the different variety of books each member donated. It was a very humbling and exhilarating experience. To many of the member's delight, the children read the books to us. Afterwards, we headed to Las Olas Boulevard for lunch at Mangos. We all agreed that this activity is one that would be worth repeating. (See March meeting below!)
December 4th - Holiday Party
Our Second Annual Holiday Brunch was held at Sherry Tarrio's home again this year. We collected items to welcome the collegiates back to school in January and also items off the wish lists of the Children's Hospitals in Dallas and Chapel Hill.

I have created a questionnaire that I need for you to fill out. It will benefit both you and the Alumnae Chapter. For instance, if you enjoy receiving the Newsletter and email from the Chapter, you can let me know. And, if you would rather not hear from us at all, you can let me know that too. It should take you one to two minutes tops to complete. Click Here for the questionnaire. The questionnaire will help the future plans and goals of the alumnae chapter.
Again, I am promoting our web site. I am continually promoting our web site. If you haven't visited it yet, I urge you to. The address has changed: http://sigma3sofla.tripod.com/. Check it out to see what you have been missing. There are pictures of meetings, Convention, Founder's Day, information about meeting dates, various links for other Sigma sites, past issues of this newsletter and much, much more wonderful Sigma information. Make sure you sign for IGive.com. It can be found on our Home Page. It is a great way for our Chapter to make money.
I hope everyone had a very happy and safe holiday season. See you all this Spring.
