It has been decided to create a facebook group for current sisters in administrative positions, and alum who want to be actively involved with the sisters to help recapture the essence of AOII. It came to the attention of several of us during the AOII 25th Anniversary, that the present sisters need help. Ritual was lost and no longer being performed, membership is down, there is probation and charter problems, and the loss of the president's gavel and ring were a few signs they need some help.
I ask you to consider joining this group. We would like to invest some time to AOII and repay the sorority for the qualities it instilled in us that make us the women we are today. By joining this group, you are commiting to (or attempting to) make a chapter meeting during the upcoming school year and actively communicate with sisters to better the sorority.
Please ask to be invited to join, or search the facebook groups for Shippensburg AOII Tau Lambda Collegiate/Alumnae Support Group and request to join. It will be a great way for us to communicate with the current sisters and find out how to best assist them.
We would have a meeting in September to allow us all to organize our involvement for this upcoming 2010-2011 school year. I am delighted to be able to send this message to you and look forward to meeting with you and current sisters to better Shippensburg AOII!!
