Alpha Delta Pi Alumna Wins Prestigious FSU Award

Mart Pierson Hill (B.S. ’42) received the Bernard F. Sliger Award for Service at the 2018 Homecoming Awards Breakfast, the Alumni Society’s highest honor.

She first entered Florida State College for Women in 1938, 80 years ago, where she joined Alpha Delta Pi.

Phi Sigma Sigma Alumna is a Hurricane Heroine

Dr. Rachel Sutz Pienta was featured in the University of Florida / IFAS blog for her efforts to provide relief supplies after Hurricane Michael.

Eleven days out from Hurricane Michael, Rachel Pienta considers Wakulla County lucky. She’s using that good fortune to help others who aren’t so lucky.

“If the storm had veered a little to the east, it could have been us who were devastated,” the University of Florida faculty member said. “But damage here was minimal compared with other parts of the Panhandle. That’s why we knew we had to help. Since October 14, we have been working around the clock to collect donations, work with relief agencies and move aid west to really small communities who aren’t necessarily getting what they need.”

APT Represented at FSU  Recruitment Kickoff Event

From left to right, above: APT President Patricia Scott, FSU Panhellenic President Jessica B., kick-off event chairperson Tilly V., and APT Past-President Carol Spring.

See more pictures of APT interacting with our collegiate sisters at https://www.floridastateph.com/panhellenic-events/

Save the Date  – Our First Event is September 5

The first meeting for general membership and especially officers and sorority representatives will be held on September 5th,2018 at Taziki’s Mediterranean Cafe, 216 S. Magnolia Drive #102, Tallahassee. The meeting will begin at 6 PM in the back area of the cafe that overlooks Magnolia Dr.

Small plates, beverages, and dinner may be ordered by attending members, at their own cost. The menu is available on line to preview.   RSVP is not required, but appreciated to Patricia Scott  by email  or by phone, 239-848-6056.

Agenda

The agenda that night will include a discussion of our revised by-laws, a distribution of notebooks for each officer, prepared by Past President, Carol V. Spring, and calendar development for activities for the year.

Our Theme for the 2018-19 Season

This year the events will have an overriding theme, to add cohesiveness to our year.  The theme will be “Greek Champions.”  Throughout the year APT will include events and activities that include successful Greek women.

If the membership is aware of specific names of Greek women in any profession that would be interesting for the group as a whole to hear speak, please bring those names forward, with contact information if possible, to our first meeting on September 5.

Share Your Sorority with Us

Because September 5th is our first meeting of the new (to us) year,  we ask that all those attending the meeting  bring a small item they have that represents their sorority years.

Some ideas might be a piece of jewelry, photographs from activities, paddles, small composites, gifts from big or little sisters, etc. This will be our ice-breaker activity.

Cascades Goes Gold on September 6

Thursday, September 6th, we are again adding our support to the Hang Tough Foundation’s activity for children at Cascades Park, at their Cascades Goes Gold event.

To celebrate Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, Cascades Park will be lit up Gold in honor of those currently fighting and those who were lost to a pediatric cancer.

As we did in 2017, ATP will supervise games for children to play.  We need volunteers to support the event. We had a blast last year and need members to again come out to join us.  No experience necessary, just a willingness to have fun with kids playing games and handing out trinkets for participation prizes.

Contact Patricia Scott  by email  or by phone, 239-848-6056, to sign up for a shift at Cascades Goes Gold.
