Gwen Frostic, Alpha, is the second winner of The Pearls of Alpha Sigma Tau Profes ional Award. Her artwork celebrate nature, enabling others to enjoy it and hopefully preserve it. Her note papers how both her love and appreciation of nature through her artistic expression and variety of m e dia.

artistry. She donated packets of note papers as gifts at an NPC meeting in the 1950s. For our 50th anniversary ce lebration , Gwen p lanned and furnished favors , programs, and decorations for the Farewell Luncheon. For our 75th anniversary, he and I cochaired the NPC luncheon, for which she designed and furnished the programs and was the principal peaker. Again in 1992, she furnished invitations and gifts of her books to guests at our PC Friendship Reception. Gwen designed a yellow rose specifically for the programs and favors , which she donated for the formal banquet. Gwen IS the business, IS Presscraft Papers. She oversees every aspect of the business. What began as hand block printed note papers in her home has grown to over 3700 different designs, using 15 Heidelberg presses, a large staff, her 285-acre wi ldlife sanctuary, and her millions of fans via mail order. Even at age 89, she delights in welcoming hundreds of visitors a day during summer months to her print shop. Gwen Frostic has been extensively and nationally honored by others for both her professional achievements and for environmental contributions. Among her honors are the Distinguished Service Award from the Michigan Tourist Association ; the Sarah Chapman Francis Literary Award from the Garden Clubs of America; a Certificate of Recognition from the Michigan Horticultural Society and me mbership in the Michigan Wome n 's Hall of Fame , Who ' s Who-World Women , Who's Who-Executives, and International Who 's Who of Professionals. -MaTtha Drouyor DeCamp

McCrory Elected to NPC Foundation Board Cynthia Peckhart McCrory, Alpha Alpha, was elected Vice President of the newly-established ational Panhellenic Conference Foundation. Results of the Program Questionnaire from the 1993 NPC Biennial Sesion indicated overwhelming support

Dear Alumnae Sisters, You are in Alpha Sigma Tau for life and your support of the alumnae organization is one of the best ways for you to acknowledge your sisterhood. This sentence introduces the alumnae dues form you received in May 1995. It may at first appear to be a simple statement, but if yo u read more closely you wi ll see the deeper meaning. Key words which app ly to each alumna can be identified in this statement. Alpha Sigma Tau is a sisterhood with many benefits that can be enjoyed. Remember your college days and the bonds that were formed? You became part of a group of young women. You grew together into the mature women that exemplify Alpha Sigma Tau . Does this have to end once you graduate and enter the alumnae organization? The answer is an emphatic 0! The bonds of sisterhood continue well into the alumnae organization. Old friendships

are kept, but new ones are also formed. Don't miss the opportunity to reap the benefits of being an involved alumna. Think back to the commitment you made to Alpha Sigma Tau at the time of your initiation. You are a m ember for life. A lifetime of friendships and activities can be yours. A lifetime of living the high ideals for which Alpha Sigma Tau stands can be yours. The alumnae organization encourages members to grow personally and professionally. Take advantage of the opportunity to belong to a women's organization th at sets itself to high standards. Along with the benefits of membership come the re pon ibilities of membership. Alpha Sigma Tau need your support. As Alpha Sigma Tau prepares for its lOOth anniversary, many alumnae are rededicating themselve to Alpha Sigma Tau. Alumnae upport, financial and personal time, are imperative if our Sorority is to continue meeting the many needs of its mem-

bers. Alpha Sigma Tau needs your active support. Be an anchored alumna! What you can do:

Pay your alumnae dues by June 1 of each year • Keep your address current with National Headquarters • Join an alumnae chapter • Organize an alumnae chapter if there i none in your area • Volunteer to serve on the National Staff Ye , membership and its benefits are for life. Alpha Sigma Tau has given much to each of it member and deserve to be given the very be t in return. Live the tatement, "I am anAlpha Sigma Tau," rather than , "I wa an Alpha Sigma Tau." In our i terhood ,

~&iL~ Mary Beth Kelley Director of Alumnae

Alumnae Mfiliation...____ _ _ _ __ __ Most of us think of rush , pledging, and initia tion as the steps to Alpha Sigma Tau membership. There is another way women can become members of Alpha Sigma Tau-alumnae affiliation. Women who have at least one year of college credit who are not a m ember of another PC group may affiliate with the Sorority. Many women did not have the opportunity to join a sorority during college, but now are ready to be part of our sisterhood. Who is eligible for alumnae affiliation? The alumnae of a local sorority which is affiliating with Alpha Sigma Tau, patronesses of collegiate chapters, chapter advisers, women from the community, and family members are examp les of e ligible women. Do yo u know a woman from your family, place of employmen t, or neighborhood who possesses the high ideals of Alpha Sigma Tau? If so, he should be introduced to Alpha Sigma Tau. Invite her to take part in socia ls and philanthropic projects. The pro e for affiliation i very


simple. An eligible woman i recommended for membership by an initiated member, collegiate chapter, or alumnae chapter. Permission to affiliate i granted by the ational Organization. The woman pays the affiliation fee and is initiated into Alpha Sigma Tau. One such member i Ricki Bargman Trosen, Alpha Sigma. Since her affiliation Ricki has served in many capacities including Alpha Sigma Chapter Adviser, Kappa Di trict President, National Secretary, ational Vice Preside nt, and is currently Director of Collegiate Chapters. The Buffalo Alumnae C hapter took advantage of this procedure by initiating three alumnae affiliate . The women had been members of a local sorority at the State Univer ity of New York at Buffalo. They wanted to continue th e ir sorority experience and chose to become part of Alpha Sigma Tau. Alpha Sigma Tau is alwa looking for qu ali ty women to become member . If you know omeone who quali-

fie , plea e take the time to introduce her to Alpha igma Tau. It could be time well pent. For more information about alumnae affiliation, plea e contact Mar y Beth Kelle y, Director of Alumnae, 22 Boulevard, Point Marion , PA 15474.

Alpha Xi Celebrates 30 Years at Mansfield The Water Tower on the hill above Mansfield University was the setting for the Alpha Xi Chapter's 30th anniversary picnic on Saturday, May 6, 1995. Approximately fifty collegiate and alumnae members enjoyed the food and music up on the hill. Since the weather was very windy, sisters spent the remainder of the afternoon in the lounge in Laurel B Residence Hall looking through scrapbooks and chapter memorabilia. Mansfield was founded as a Pennsylvania State Normal School in 1857 and ha since been known as a state teachers' college, a state college, and since 1983, Mansfield University of Pennsylvania. Alpha Sigma Tau was the first NPC sorority on the campus, installed on May 2, 1965. Special guests included Alpha Xi alumnae Amy DuPree, Zeta Chapter Adviser; Carole Bicking Keily, ationa! Vice President; and Karen
