Psi Iota Xi

The monthly meeting of the Zeta Mu Chapter of Psi Iota Xi on Feb. 9 was called to order by Lynn Arthur in the absence of the president at 6:30 p.m. via the internet/phone as a virtual meeting due to the COVID-19 virus. There were 10 members attending. The meeting began with the Opening Verse. Members answered roll call with their favorite pizza.

There was no report for the Wine & Arts Fair. Ginger Hedinger, Leisa Lowrey, Paula Marshall, Lynn Arthur and Deb Stemle will attend the state meeting hosted by the Odon chapter to be held on Saturday, April 17, at West Gate at Crane Technology Park near Odon. We will have enough people to have a sales booth. Lynn Arthur will check for a location to have our summer Language Literacy Clinic and will research if the clinic will be held in person or virtually.

The Psi Iota Xi’s National Project Chair, Mickie Hansen, has sent tickets for the Evansville Philharmonic and the Indianapolis Symphony to chapter sororities. The Evansville performances will be held virtually via live-stream with five performances being offered. The Indianapolis Symphony is planning three performances via On Demand. Chapter President Ginger Hedinger has received the access information and will be sharing it with local music and band teachers.

Lunch Bunch will be hosted by Marci Backer. She will send an email with the date, place and time.

Cynthia Jaent won the door prize. February birthday greetings were given to Pam Jarboe, Nan Mehringer, Cynthia Jaent and Ginger Hedinger.

The next meeting will be March 9 at 6:30 p.m. and members will be advised if the meeting will be virtual or in person. The meeting ended with the Closing Verse.
