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.

Greek Life News of Interest

New Recruitment Requirements at USC

In March, the University of Southern California announced a change to the requirements for sorority and fraternity membership.

The new requirement says, “effective Fall 2018, all USC students who wish to participate in Greek organization recruitment must have completed a minimum of 12 academic units, and a minimum USC grade point average of 2.5.” This basically means that incoming students can no longer rush their first semester at USC.

As this information is of interest to our APT members, links to the articles are provided below:
