Schedule change on Alum Day! And an Ebook Show!

Monday night at chapter the Delta Zeta sisters came to promote their annual Turtle Trot 5K. It is scheduled for March 26th. I have decided that because so many of our sisters want to run in the Turtle Trot, that I would move the schedule for Alum Day back a few hours so that they can participate. If any alum are interested in running this 5K, email me! Registration is 12$ before, and 15$ the day of. The new Alum Day schedule will now be:

1:30pm-2:00pm    Arrive at the APH, first introductions
2:00pm-4:00pm    Recruitment Activities
4:00pm-4:30pm    Family Pictures
4:30pm-6:00pm    Sisterhood Activites
6:00pm                   Dinner around Boone

Suzan Wood, our chapter advisor (who some of you might know!), was approached by a friend, Kathy Jordan, who holds Usborne Book Shows online and in people's homes. Like a Mary Kay party, but with children’s books instead! Here is more information from Kathy Jordan and Suzan Wood:

You are invited to an Usborne Books eShow to explore the world of Usborne Books.  A child's interest in reading and learning is stimulated by the lavish illustrations and informative content.  There are over 1300 bright, colorful and fun titles covering activities, puzzles and a wide range of subjects for children of all ages.

Please forward this eShow to friends and family. Half of the profits  from the show will go to CMN. Lambda Beta at Appalachian State University will make a donation to CMN at the end of this semester.  They have raised $3,100 already from other fundraisers and are trying to reach $5,000 this semester. 
Thanks for your support.

Usborne Books - the books kids love to read!

Hosted by: CMN Fundraiser
When: Today thru 3/31/2011 11:59:00 PM
Chat Scheduled: -

Everyone is welcome, so invite a friend! It's a rewarding experience when a child opens a book and discovers the magic of reading.

I think this a great way to support Lambda Beta and CMN. Especially if you are unable to come to Boone for Alum Day. So please help us out! We are really trying to make our $5,000 goal for CMN! Once we reach $5,000 we as a chapter will be recognized by CMN for our contributions. If you are planning on attending Alum Day, and would like Kelly Jordan to hold a book show, just let me know and I will tell her!

Alum Day Schedule!

Hey ladies! Hope everyone is having a good Monday! 

I have come up with a basic plan for Alum Day! Which if you didn't know, Alum Day is SATURDAY, MARCH 26TH.

The time frame of the day is 10am-4pm.

10:00am-12:00pm  Recruitment Activities
12:00pm-1:30pm    Lunch around Boone
1:30pm-2:00pm      Family Pictures
2:00pm-4:00pm      Sisterhood Activities

I will have a few options of things we can do and whoever is able to attend can pick what they would like to do. Please, please let me know if you can come! I want to get an idea of how many alumnae will be coming. :) Also, if you want to get a hotel room and are interested in splitting the cost with another alum, just tell me what night(s) you want to stay and I'll match you together. 

Make sure to tell all of your Lambda Beta sisters about Alum Day and to check out our blog!

If you have any questions comment on the post or shoot me an email!

Hope to see you all soon!

Quick Alum Day Update!

Hey ladies! 

Just a quick tidbit; we officially have a date for ALUM DAY!

It will be on MARCH 26TH. This is a SATURDAY. It is the last Saturday of March. If any of you want to come in on Friday and spend the night, but don't want to get a room by yourself, give me your name and I will try to connect you to other alum that are willing to split the cost of a room. The same goes for anyone wishing to stay Saturday night. Or both nights. Just email me with your name, and the night(s) you want to stay.

I will post an itinerary and more details for Alum Day as soon as everything is finalized and approved. 

--Blair the Alum Chair :) 

P.S. If you have any questions, just email me at our new Alum Chair account: I've synced the account with my phone, so I'll be sure to get them!
