In keeping with Phi Tau Omega’s national goal of “Feeding the Hungry,” members of the local Kappa Alpha sorority agreed at their meeting Tuesday to provide desserts and help serve the meal at First Presbyterian Church’s Sunday Soups program on Oct. 28.
Sorority members help with the church’s program each quarter, as well as donate monthly to the Iola Ministerial Association’s food pantry and to the Blessing Box on the Iola square.
Eighteen members attended the meeting. Gwen Tefft and Janet Wilson were hostesses.
Thank you notes were read from cancer patients who had received gas cards to help with their travel expenses.
Tefft reported the August enchilada money-maker was a success, with 100 percent participation from Kappa Alpha members. A total of 66 dozen enchiladas were made and sold. Profits will go into the general fund and be disbursed as needed for ongoing philanthropic projects.
The group will have a food booth at Farm City Days on Oct. 13.
The September social will be Sept. 17, with Patty Latta and Jolene Boeken as hostesses. The next Kappa Alpha business meeting will be at 7 p.m. Oct. 1 at the Community National Bank conference room.
