Hi Tri Psi Sisters,
I hope you are all doing well and keeping healthy in these crazy times! Who would have ever dreamed of things being what they are? I apologize for not keeping you more up to date. I have had a very busy summer and spent most of it in Toronto. I am so happy to be at our family cottage a few hours from Toronto for a few days. Chilly but very pretty!
Tri Psi International has been busy over the summer and we have a number of ideas that are being turned into realities. Each chapter was asked to return their thoughts on a proposed Loan Fund transition. We are hoping to change our Memorial Loan fund to become a yearly scholarship for graduate students, presented and managed on our behalf by Tri Delta Foundation. It will be a lasting legacy for Tri Psi, whereby Tri Deltas will hear about our scholarship along with all other DDD scholarship opportunities. We are also working on getting representation in the Tri Delta Museum in Dallas. This would give us a permanent home for some of our treasures.
We have also revised the Ritual Book and copies have been mailed to each chapter. The Triad should have found its way to your door. Please let us know if you did not receive it.
Tri Delta initiated a new chapter at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana. It was done
online and a lovely way to involve everyone. I was able to watch and was pleased with how well it went.
As a result of the new DDD chapter, Tri Psi International will be initiating a new Tri Psi chapter, virtually, in October.
I appreciate how difficult it is meeting as a group during this pandemic. There is the possibility of ZOOM, phone chats, SKYPE; whatever works will be great. Some of the new moms might welcome the possibility of just a computer commitment? Times are different, the world is changing. Let us know what you did and how it worked!
It is time to collect our yearly dues. Most chapters send notices in September since the international portion of dues need to be mailed to international treasurer Naomi Anderson by January 15th. Please do not wait until January since we are happy to get dues early. Please remember, the Tri Psi Initiate and Jewelry Order Form is newly revised and available on www.TriPsiSorority.com along with other information and forms.
Special thoughts for Laura Outman who had hip surgery recently. Greatest condolences to the Medina family in Overland Park, Kansas on their loss of patriarch Mark Medina.
The convention is planned for June 3 – 6, 2021, fingers crossed. All info is on our website!
Please pass on any suggestions, ideas, hopes, plans and thoughts. Take care, keep safe!
Tri Psi Love,
