Members enjoyed a meal of beef and chicken taquito casserole, beans, chips, and salsa. Desert of vanilla Bundt cake was served and enjoyed as Sandi Chitwood shared the Founder’s Day Pledge. The Message from International written by Laura Ross Wingfield, President of the Executive Council of Beta Sigma Phi, was read by Alice Liles.
