Laureate Mu Chapter hears of Yellowstone history
LAFAYETTE - Members of Laureate Mu Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi traveled to Lafayette last week for their regular monthly meeting.
The group first gathered for a luncheon at a downtown Lafayette restaurant on Tuesday, Sept. 3, before meeting at the Lafayette home of Connie Jaubert.
Jaubert presented a program on Yellowstone National Park, which is the world’s oldest national park.
The Jauberts spent several days camping in the park enjoying its natural wonders which include a number of waterfalls and 10,000 geysers and hot springs, including Old Faithful.
The geysers were the main reason for the establishment of the park in 1872 as America’s first national park.
The park is located in northwest Wyoming, southeast Montana and northeast Idaho.
Members brought dish washing liquid to be brought to Miss Helen’s Soup Kitchen.
The October meeting will be held at the home of Nancy Tislow. The chapter birthday will be celebrated at that meeting, at which time secret sisters will be revealed. Members were reminded to bring gifts for secret sisters.
In new business, various cultural outings were suggested, including a visit to the new Erath museum, a visit to the museum in Marksville and the Eunice play, “Tuesdays with Morrie.” It was decided to attend the play.
In an inspirational reading called “Sisters,” Shirley Griffin reminded members that they are blessed by the other women in their lives, including their sorority sisters.
Jaubert, the hostess, served ice cream and cake to members Glenda Atkinson, Gloria Cart, Shirley Griffin, Brenella Joubert, Elsie Rowell, Gloria Stutes and Nancy Tislow.
