My Happy List #45



Photobucket




My Happy List has a theme this week:

It's All Greek to Me!  :D


1.     My mother and I attended Zeta Day this past weekend.  It was fun and loud!  The young ladies were not shy about showing their Zeta love.

My mom and I at the Mississippi/Alabama Zeta Day 2012




One of the highlights for me was seeing the actual silver chain of Zeta chapters.  Usually it is on display at the national headquarters, so it was a treat to see it in person here in Alabama.

My chapter's link in the chain:  Nu Chapter, the University of Alabama, founded on April 10, 1910.

There's a long, long chain of chapters
From North to South, East to West.
There's a loyal group of sisters that we all love best.
How we'd like to have you join us,
And be a Zeta so true.
We'd like, oh how, we'd like to make a
Zeta Girl of you!



We were served a strawberry dessert, of course!  Strawberries were served at the very first Zeta social.

One of the main reasons I remain active in my sorority is our philanthropy.  I have had several friends develop breast cancer, and they are all the encouragement I need to support the Zeta Tau Alpha Foundation.

Zeta's partners include the NFL and Yoplait yogurt.


Raising funds and awareness for breast cancer makes me very happy!  I am proud to be a Zeta!

2.     Our daughter's sorority is hosting a philanthropy event with my husband's fraternity.  Mr. Art @ Home will definitely be there!  She even bought Mr. Art @ Home a t-shirt for the event. She is so cute to think of her daddy!

A pocket on the front of a fraternity t-shirt is called a frocket!  ;P


Are you Greek?  Are you still active as an alumna in your sorority?  Our local chapter keeps us busy, and I was so proud and in awe of how much money and awareness our local Zeta chapters have raised for breast cancer.

Until next time...

Zeta love!

  7. Back in college, I was a shy and quiet girl so I never managed to join any organization. College life for me was studies, home and my few close friends. Seeing things like this make me feel that there's really great happiness in being with other people especially if it comes for a cause.

    I hope your sorrority will engage more in philantropic endeavors. The society needs people like you.

    Wishing you a great day ahead Ricki! :)

  9. i have always wished i had done college the traditional way. i started straight out of HS but took some time off then went back for my masters and i was married and working full time when i did it, so there was no real college life for me. i am glad that i have my education but a sorority would have been sooo much fun!!
