2021 Induction Ceremony
Nu October Business Meeting
During the October meeting, Nu Chapter welcomed Watha Kollmeyer, Founder and Director of Knickers for New Life, who presented a program about her work in Uganda to provide knickers (underwear), sanitary supplies, mosquito repellant soap, and latrines so that girls remain in school. The annual water bottle collection will be shared with Knickers for New Life, Schools for Africa, and Nu teacher grants. Members can donate directly by going to the KFNL website.
The business meeting included approval of meeting minutes, approval of the treasurer's report and 2021-2022 budget, ratifying electronic votes for establishing the Phyllis Frye Copeland Endowment Fund and Chapter Rules amendments, and accepting the published committee reports. President Snyder presented scholaship stipends to Amanda Moose and Suzanne Cadwallader. Leslie Black presented details about a Nu Cookbook fundraiser.
