 Ruthie Bohnert Hosts Alpha Zeta Chapter

May 16, 2007 - Alpha Zeta chapter of Kappa Kappa Kappa, Knightstown, met May 8 in the home of Ruthie Bohnert.

President Kristin Haase opened the business meeting by welcoming collegiate members Jenny Brooks, Brittany Biehl, Jennifer Gross and Sarah Haase. The secretary and treasurer presented their reports which were approved. Notes of appreciation were read from the Tri Kappa State Scholarship Endowment fund, the Knightstown and Kennard elementary schools, Make a Difference chairman Norm Bohnert and Kylie Doubman. President-elect Nancy Gross distributed preference sheets for next year’s program.

Education chairman Shannon Dawson thanked the scholarship committee for working with her to select the scholarship winners for this school year. Committee members were Cynthia McDonald, Nancy Gross and Vee Ann Schmidt. Lois Brooks, library chairman, reported that there will probably be some improvements made at the library soon.

Brunch chairman Paula Ortman thanked her committee of Betts Adams, Judy Barnes, Lois Brooks, Barb Estridge, Cheryl Hammer, Heather Koehler, Susie Leonard, Jill Null, Sarah Springman and Kathy Zellinga.

The Senior Girls’ Brunch is sponsored by Tri Kappa and Psi Iota Xi for the senior girls at Knightstown High School and Morton Memorial. Elementary School Culture Program Chair Sherry Trainor reported that “Drums of West Africa” was very well received by the elementary school students and there were many favorable comments heard throughout the community. Spring flowers will be ready for pickup Friday, May 1, after 4:30 p.m. at the Haase farm.

Sign up sheets were circulated for Kappa Klowns and balloon inflators for Jubilee Days June 2.

Initiation will be held June 12 at 6:30 p.m. at Bethel Presbyterian Church and the initiation dinner will follow at the Methodist Church with Cheryl Hammer catering. The chapter will be preparing and serving the alumni dinner June 23 at the high school.

Various committees were appointed and times were arranged. Also, Tri Kappa members will have an opportunity to work the “Cars of Summer” Car Show held downtown Knightstown June 22-23. Plans are underway for the celebration of Alpha Zeta’s 100th birthday next March and the chapter is involved in making this very special time an outstanding event. Charitable contributions were approved for Krista Coy, Sarah Davis and the “Cars of Summer.” President Haase gave a report on the recent state convention held in Indianapolis and thanked officers Dawson and Null for attending also. Janet Linch and Sally Armstrong were winners of the spring flower hanging baskets.

Following the meeting, a pledging ceremony was held for Denise Titus, Kylie Doubman and Katy Henderson. Punch and cookies were served by the pledging committee that included Judy Haase, Vee Ann Schmidt and Penny Shaneyfelt.
