Alpha Delta Kappa, Beta Beta Chapter

Members of the chapter met Sept. 26 at the Clarkston home of Karle Warren. Patti Lee, chaplain, gave a memorial service in honor of member Judy Wayne, who died in June.

Members held a discussion about how best to promote membership, and set a goal to procure members from each school, either by recruiting new members or reinstating previous members.

Offices of president and treasurer had to be filled, so three members will share the office of president: Patty English, Kathy Meshishnek and Sharon Hoseley. English and Meshishnek will work with Lynnae Anderson to oversee meeting program schedules, Meshishnek and Hosely will preside over the meetings and work with Warren to write and submit reports. Tami Randles will fill the office of treasurer.

Members decided to leave the meeting location up to each monthly host to secure, but ask for at least two weeks notice. Members still have hopes of a yearly meeting with members of Lewiston’s Xi Chapter, ADK.

Connie Jelinek has scheduled the chapter’s two soup kitchen dates and will be contacting members to serve.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the traditional Founders’ Day meeting will not be possible and members are being encouraged to think of a creative way within each chapter to celebrate this event.

Members will purchase copies of Hoseley’s second book, to be published in December, to donate to local schools in the name of ADK to mark the 2020 ADK Book Month.

Patty English will make a flyer for ADK Month to put in the schools to encourage membership.
