During their pledge time, they donated money to the Pine Mountain Settlement School, collec ted children 's books for local area hospitals and had time to spend with the sisters. Throughout last semester, our chapter has participated in man y ac tivities, philanthropic, social, and fund raising. We continued our long-term philanthropic project, Adopt-a-Highway. We donated a sheet to the Oklahoma victims, which we comple ted on our retreat weekend . Another philanthropic project was a community-wide, anti drug fund raiser which was held very close to campus. In addition , we had many ru hes, sorority/ fraternity and pledge/ sister social events which fill our heads with beautiful memories. For fund raising, we had a Bowl-a-Thon , which turned out to be a great success. Not only did we make money, but we had oodles of fun.
