Alumnae Newsletter - Fall 2007

Greetings to all of you lovely Lambda ladies!

Lambda Chapter kicked off this fall semester with the recruitment of four amazing additions to the proud tradition of Zeta Tau Alpha women. Kaity Cromwell, Cheryl Duncan, Andrea Miller, and Laura Kromann make up our new 2007 fall pledge class. The members of the chapter held a mini-fall07 newbiesbidnight for our new girls to celebrate them through Zeta sisterhood and spirit with activities made to match this year's recruitment theme, "Team Zeta". As much as we enjoyed dressing up to match this theme, nothing compared to how thrilled we were about having these girls in our chapter. Once again we are happy to welcome these newbies--a group of well-rounded and dedicated students and sisters who truly represent all that makes us proud to be Zetas.

We are also proud to report that President Ashley Battarbee and VP1 Kalie Trueper (pictured below right) returned from ZTA National Leadership Convention this summer with three prestigious awards for the chapter: Crown Chapter, Quota Total, and the Major Donor Award for fundraising. Remarking on her experiences at the convention, Ashley Battarbee recalls being excited to "tour the newly remodeled international office and meet our new Province President, Kat Reed." As a chapter we look forward to what the future holds and building off this last year's success--ever upholding and strengthening the reputation and legacy of Lambda Chapter.

Most recently, our members held Lambda Chapter's Fourth Annual Crown Classic Dodgeball Tournament to raise money for our philanthropy, breast cancer awareness and education. The event was a tremendous success with a large turn-out of Southwestern students creating teams to vie for the coveted title of Dodgeball Champions. As a chapter we are enormously thankful to all the teams that competed, the Georgetown community for its prize-donations, and Jean Herberger our fundraising chair for taking on the responsibility of organizing the event.

Next on our agenda is the initiation of the Fall 2007 Pledge Class which we be held on campus on Friday, November 23. Also as next semester continues to grow closer, coming up are a number of formal and informal recruitment activities. For now that's all from Lambda Chapter, as we are busying ourselves with preparations for an exciting spring semester!

Zeta love,
