Message from the President

Dear sisters in Chi Omega,

I am truly honored to be serving as the 2017-2018 President.  This year the Alumnae Association is focusing on FRIENDSHIP, FELLOWSHIP, and PHILANTHROPY!  I encourage you to take a few minutes to visit our Calendar to see all the exciting activities and events planned for the coming year.  (Simply highlight the tab that says “Our Chapter” found at the top of the homepage and click on Calendar.)  Remember to check back periodically for updates and new information.

By joining the Chi Omega Alumnae Association, you not only renew old FRIENDSHIPS, but create new ones, as well.  Joining is so easy and can be done right now by clicking the Become a Member box.  You will want to follow us on Facebook at Chi Omega Alumnae of Houston and on Instagram at chiohoustonalum.

As a dues paying member, you will be invited to all of the FELLOWSHIP events for the year, including the Fall Coffee, Holiday Tea, General Meetings and the lovely Eleusinia Banquet honoring Founder’s Day.  You may enjoy a cooking class taught by our sweet sister Laura Kaplan, shopping at Round Top and Magnolia Farms, traveling to Dallas for Chi Omega Christmas, or having a fun lunch with your sisters at the monthly Chow Omegas.  Of course, our Night Owls have planned some exciting events for the year.  Maybe you want to join our Book Club or get together with other young Chi Omega mothers at Moms & Tots.  So many fun fellowship opportunities are waiting for you with your Chi Omega sisters!!  Members only will receive information regarding these fabulous events.

Your membership in the Chi Omega Alumnae Association helps to ensure continued support for various charities, including our local PHILANTHROPY, The Center, along with providing scholarships to deserving young collegians.  You will want to include a fall and spring cookie packaging day at The Center with your Chi Omega sisters this year!  In addition to packaging cookies at The Center, we will also be walking as a group of Chi Omegas in the Susan G. Komen walk in October.  Feel free to bring your daughters to walk with us!  In the spring we will have a Chi Omega Serves day at the Houston Food Bank.  Join your sisters and let’s serve our Houston community!

If you have any questions about how to join the Chi Omega Alumnae Association of Houston, or how to renew your annual membership, feel free to e-mail me or our membership chairs – Lisa Curry and Dawn Murphy at membership@chiomegahouston.com. We are here to help you.  Won’t you join us today?

When you join the Alumnae Association and pay your dues, you are not only supporting your local Alumnae Chapter, you are continuing to show your support for Chi Omega Fraternity.  Remember that Sisterhood is for a Lifetime.  We are thrilled to have you join us for Friendship, Fellowship, and Philanthropy!  We are Sisters On Purpose

Joyfully in Chi Omega,

Kathleen Asel Mayes
