The sisters of Xi Eta Lambda, McConnellsburg chapter of Beta Sigma Phi, were quite active over the winter months. Activities in January concentrated on attending the PA State Fair Queen Coronation in Hershey and holding an Envoy Evening for husbands at the American Legion. At that event, a white elephant auction was held and the money raised was given to Justin Hudson’s family.
Service projects included donations to both MHS and FRHS musicals, two Relay For Life teams, the MHS 2010 graduation party, and giving a basket of useful items for the elderly to the FCMC. We also had time to make two crafts, country accent lights and primitive potpourri baskets and view a locally produced DVD about a 1,000-step stairway in Huntingdon County.
An election for the 2010- 11 year was held and the following sisters were named: president - Vickie Gordon; vice president - Marie Shimer; treasurer - Joan Mellott; recording secretary - Carol Strait; corresponding secretary - Susie Schmidt; and extension officer - Deb Leese.
