January 2010 Newsletter

January Eta Sigma Colony Events
Eta Sigma will have a busy month with 3 separate CDC visits, Second Degree, and Initiation this month. Check your calendars to see if you can help out on any of the following days:

• January 14th at 6:00 PM– New Member Exam. Eta Sigma is in need of non-CAB proctors for this event in
the UALR Donaghey Center, Room D. CAB will be meeting with the CDC national officer in town at that
time, and so we are in need of some KDs to help out for that night. Contact Jessica Holcomb at or 479-979-8300.

• January 18th at 5:00 PM – Second Degree. Because of CDC and colony scheduling, 2nd Degree has been
planned for a time when no national officer, or assisting chapter, can help with the Eta Sigma 2nd Degree
ceremony. The Eta Sigma CAB has been placed in charge of preparing and presenting the 2nd degree ceremony to the Eta Sigma New Members. This event is much more meaningful if we have Kappa Delta sisters attend and start the first step to welcoming the sisters into our sisterhood. We will have a review at 5 pm in the UALR Donaghey Center, Room D; with the ceremony starting at 6 pm. Contact Rachel Lipsey at or 501-413-0954 if you can help us out.

• January 23rd at 2:00 PM – Initiation. Zeta Omega (Memphis) chapter will prepare and present Initiation for
Eta Sigma at UALR Donaghey Center, Room D. You are invited to come and participate, as well as help
prepare and serve at in the Initiation Reception following. While there is no real need to practice (as Zeta
Omega collegians will take the lead in this ceremony), we can offer a review if members would like. Contact
Rachel Lipsey at or 501-413-0954 if you plan to participate.

February Girl Scout Event
Our Girl Scout committee has been brainstorming this past month on an activity for our February Girl Scout event, and is currently talking with local troops to see how we can best be of service. We’ll post the date and time of this February event ASAP.

March Shamrock Event
CAKD has decided to do a shopping event at White House Black Market for our 2010 Shamrock event. Appetizers will be served, and 10% of all total sales for the shopping party will go to Prevent Child Abuse America’s, a KD philanthropy, projects and services. We haven’t nailed down the specific date, but are planning it for a Sunday evening in March. Stay tuned for more details to come!
