Gadsden’s Pretty Little Ladies Tea
The month of April was a busy one for the members of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. as we continue to fulfill our goal of completing eighty service projects before the eightieth anniversary of our chartering.
Members of the chapter presented forty-one Easter baskets to the residents of Greenbriar Children’s Center. Also included were baskets from the Amicae Auxiliary. Each year the chapter makes the donations to the children at Greenbriar to brighten their lives during the Easter season.
Several members were invited to Gadsden Elementary School’s Business Partner and Volunteers Appreciation Low Country Boil and Barbeque. Also, each year the chapter sponsors a Little Ladies Tea Party with a select group of female students at the school. The students are taught etiquette skills and proper manners. At the end of the lessons, the tea party is held with the little ladies all dressed up in their best dresses, hats and gloves.
The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure was held on Saturday, April 20th at Ellis Square. Members of Alpha Theta Zeta chapter met at the Komen office on Thursday to prepare and distribute packets for participants in the race.
Also on the 20th, the chapter members participated in the March of Dimes Walk in Daffin Park. The March of Dimes is one of the sorority’s national projects.
The chapter will celebrate its eightieth year of existence in June, 2019.
