Annual Beta Mu Events:
Every fall our chapter participates in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Quincy, IL. Each sister is encouraged to raise at least $100 in donations by fundraising. Most sisters utilize social media to do so, and raise over $100. We, as a chapter turn in our donations in September at the walk. We all have a blast walking together.
We also replant a memorial garden on campus every spring. Located between Clough Hall and the Quad, our garden is in the shape of a triangle, a sacred symbol of Sigma Kappa. The garden was dedicated in memory of a fallen sister, Melissa Koontz, on November 1, 1990. Our garden is very dear to our hearts as it is a physical reminder of the powerful mystic bond we share and how it has helped us and will continue to help us even after we leave Culver-Stockton. Every spring we clean up around our little triangle, pull all the weeds and plant beautiful new flowers around the central plaque. In addition to paying respect to all of the sisters we have lost, this event also falls under our philanthropy, Inherit the Earth. For more information on sister Melissa Koontz and the memorial garden please email Leslie Wilson Vice President of Philanthropic Services, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are many more things that we, as a house, do to honor our five philanthropies. We make cards to take to the Lewis County Nursing Home. During recruitment this year the Potential New Members made tie blankets that we took to the nursing home following recruitment. Members visit the nursing home a few times a semester to play games, craft, and to spend time with the individuals in the nursing home. It makes their days a little brighter when we visit. Also, we held a Bake Sale at a C-SC football game to raise money as a part of our Ultra Violet campaign. These are just a few more of the events that we do throughout the year.
