Members of the Xi Gamma Pi Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi gathered at the home of Marta Andrews on March 10.

During the business meeting, members discussed plans for Easter meals for the homebound, a rush party to be held at Peggy Cole's home, Founder's Day, and the deadline for scholarship applications. Potential scholarship applicants are reminded that Beta Sigma Phi offers both a traditional and' a non-traditional scholarship annually. Contact Copper Crown real estate office for scholarship information.

Members expressed their concern about Nancy Richeson, who is recovering from surgery.

The program explored family history. Andrews prepared a family history interview. In addition to the interview, members were asked to list five interesting facts about themselves that others in the group may not know. Among other things, members learned that one of them is adopted, one is one-fourth Native American, one is related to Ponce de Leon, one flunked hairdressing school, one has lived in only two houses, and another has been president of the Junior Women of America organization.

In honor of her Irish heritage, Andrews decorated her table with four leaf clover's and green carnations. She played Irish folk songs by recent Ajo visitor, Jeni Foster. More than half of the members present had at least one Irish ancestor. Andrews served warm bitter-sweet chocolate cake with homemade ice cream and cherry coulis.

The next chapter meeting will be held March 24 at the Ranch House Restaurant.
