Most alumnae chapters present awards annually
to their members. With a variety of
titles such as Spirit Award and Symphony
Sister Award, all honor a member for service
above self and for inspiring her Sisters.
For a fun-filled weekend getaway or a more ambitious adventure, members of your alumnae chapter
might consider participating in one of Chi Omega’s tours. See the Fraternity’s upcoming travel adventures
on page 58 of this issue.
