Zeta Rho chapter of Beta Sigma Phi met in the home of Pat Angeley Tuesday, September 13, for their monthly meeting. Pat and Sharon Agee served a meal of green salad, spaghetti, corn on the cob, garlic toast, and homemade butter pecan ice cream to members.

After the meal, President Lynne Box led members in the opening ritual to begin the business meeting. Secretary Vicki Black called roll and read the minutes from the last meeting. Treasurer Pat Young gave her report. New business discussed included service projects and the upcoming Octoberfest meeting. President Box then led members in the closing ritual and mizpah.

The program was Krystal Bennett sharing her recent travels to famous old world sites in Spain, France, Monaco, Corsica, and Italy. Krystal and her husband Bryan along with her sister Tiffany and her husband Brian Boehning spent fourteen days touring with a group of friends from Lubbock. The whole trip was a revelation of history and the human experience, but there were some highlights. Krystal was especially taken with the Sagrada Familia castle in Barcelona, which has been and still is under construction for the past 144 years and has a storied history. The visit to the Monte Carlo casino was a formal affair the whole group enjoyed. Toward the end of the trip, Krystal and Bryan took a side trip to Pisa, Italy, where they saw not only the more well-known leaning tower of Pisa, but also the Baptistery and Cathedral at that site. Krystal commented that of these structures, the famous leaning tower was least impressive of the three. On that trip, they passed the Carrara marble quarry where the white marble used by Michelangelo for his sculptures was quarried long ago and is still operational today. Everyone enjoyed her trip narration and the pictures and video to go with it.

Members present for the meeting were Lynne Box, Vicki Black, Pat Angeley, Sheila Stevenson, Rickie Warren, Sharon Agee, Pat Young, Melba King, Cindy Barrett, Alice Liles, and guest Hellen Adrian.
