Phi Sigma Sigma? It's all about perpetuity...

As I was packing for Convention this year, I got to thinking about the way that Phi Sigma Sigma has been there for me throughout my life... when I needed to connect with people in college, Phi Sig was there. When I moved to a new city after grad school and needed to make friends, Phi Sig was there. In fact, as I look over my past, Phi Sig has been an important part of almost half my life. And now, as my perspective on life has changed - as I have a new little legacy to fill my days (and nights - let us not forget those) with joy, I'm really happy that Phi Sigma Sigma will continue to be there for me... because it will also be there for Chloe.

They say that the alumnae years are the giving years and maybe that's true, but in the warmth of my sisters' love, I realize that I'm getting quite a lot, too. We, on the Foundation board, hope that all of you take a moment this weekend - whether you are here or not - to reflect on the strength and wonder of this amazing sisterhood.

With love,
Heather Kelley
Foundation Secretary

P.S. from Chloe
I couldn't help but notice the large package of baby goodies in the Foundation auction this year. Lamaze toys. Lots of them. Mommy better plan accordingly or there will be fussing. Bid high, Mommy. Bid high.

This time next week...

... We'll be preparing for the Foundation dinner at Convention, 2009! The directors of the Phi Sigma Sigma Foundation are excited to be meeting with so many sisters next week in Norfolk, VA. We thank you in advance for your support of the Foundation's mission and vision and we look forward to sharing in the warmth of your sisterhood.

When you stop by the Foundation table next week, please take a moment to talk with us about the exciting work you have undertaken this year. We want to hear all about your successful Rock-a-Thons, your passionate philanthropic work and all of the things that make your chapter stand out.

We will be having a whole lot of fun with you during our time together in Norfolk... between the First Annual Euchre Tournament, the Foundation dinner and auction, and the delivery of all those Heart to Hearts, you will be seeing the Foundation directors quite a bit.

But in the meantime, pack those white dresses, double check your itinerary and get set for a fantastic few days! We'll see you soon!
