Message from the Basileus
We had a wonderful and sisterly time at the Joint Chapter meeting last month. I would like to thank Soror Kimberly Edwards, Soror Kafi Meadows and Soror Shamikhah Baker for all of their work to make this joint meeting and graduating senior recognition event successful. There are a few graduating seniors that will be staying in the Boston area. We will definitely make sure that they make Psi Omega their chapter home.
On April 28th we supported our Sister Chapter Rho Epsilon Omega as they celebrated their 30thAnniversary. It was a gorgeous day and a beautiful event. It was so nice to see so many Psi Omega Sorors there to support. After, the anniversary celebration we had a wonderful sisterly relations activity for the chapter. I would like to thank our Sisterly Relations chair Soror Tina Petigny and her committee for organizing this great fellowship. A special shout out goes to Soror Malika Jefferies-El for opening her home to all of us. We had a great time with good food and fun games.
Sorors, we have finally moved to a larger storage space. Thank you Soror Kimberly Edwards for helping me to move our stuff from the old space to the new space. It was a lot for two people, but we made it work. Sorors, if you have items that belong to the chapter, please bring them to the next chapter meeting. We have a space that where we can store all of our belongings. The next phase will be to get it organized. Please stay tuned for a date for Sorors to come and help organize the storage.
Please let me know if you will be attending Boule. We are going to have a chapter gathering and want to make sure we are including everyone. Also, just a heads up that the June chapter meeting will be held at the Shelbourne Center in Roxbury.
Sorors, please sign up for a committee if you have not done so already. I want to thank each of you for your hard work and dedication to ensure this chapter runs smoothly.
I look forward to seeing each of you at a chapter meeting or event soon.
