MARCH GATHERING PREVIEW
As our Region prepares to host the National Fraternity Chapter in September we are seeking volunteers for a variety of tasks, from greeting visitors at the airport to preparing and serving evening hospitality events. Watch for more information.
Please also remember that we are collecting donations to help provide legal services for the family from Venezuela. Look for the collection bottle at our Gathering. We are aiming to collect at least $2500 by the end of March. Please donate if you can.
