DUE THE RIGHT THING…

Being a member of Gamma Phi Beta is a lifetime commitment!  Part of that commitment includes paying your dues.

There are two parts: international dues, which goes to headquarters.  And local dues, which stays here with your local alumnae chapter.

International dues are $25 a year.

Those can be paid online, at https://www.gammaphibeta.org/alumnaedues

When you pay online, be sure to select “Atlanta Southern Crescent” from the drop down menu of alumnae chapters.

(You can also pay your international dues to the chapter treasurer when you pay your local dues.)

Starting this year, Gamma Phi Beta has a NEW way of paying your International Dues.  It allows you to do it one time, and be in good standing forever!  It’s called Life Loyal.

With a one-time dues fee you are contributing to a fund that will help finance membership benefits, like The Crescent, for you and our future members to continue to enjoy. The establishment of this fund alleviates the need to use collegiate resources to fund the Sorority magazine, a mostly alumnae benefit.

The Life Loyal fee is $299.  If you are a 50+ year member,  the fee is $189.  And you can buy it as a gift!  (Wow!  What a special gift!)  If you have questions, go to the Gamma Phi Beta FAQ page for a lot more information!

Even if you are a Life Loyal member, you still have to pay your local dues!  No, we don’t have a way to let you pay us a lump sum that will cover you for life.

For the 2016-17 year, local dues are $25.

But this year, we are offering several perks to members who pay.   In addition to a special thank you gift, we will have a phone/address directory of members for all paying members and we will have special discount prices available at some events for dues paying members!

Right now, we cannot accept online payments.  (Sorry!)

You can pay any board member at a meeting.

Or you can mail a check to our treasurer (address below).  Please make the check out to “Gamma Phi Beta.”

Snaps to our Sweet Home Alabama Hostess!

IMG_4955It’s just a few days before the Sweet Home Alabama party.  Fay Hardy is checking over her list, making sure she’s ready for the annual event she so loves hosting.  Her favorite part?  She can’t quite pin it down to just one thing.  There’s having everyone together in an informal setting.  Then there’s the getting to know everyone better.  And don’t leave out the food.  Fay marvels at how there’s always such a perfect variety without bothering to assign anything.  She hopes just maybe everyone will share their recipes this year. (consider yourself warned!)

Fay has pressed her brown and mode tablecloths and gotten pink flowers for the yard.  She loves finding pink carnations for the tables and getting everything ready for hosting her sisters at the annual event that officially kicks off the year for the Atlanta Southern Crescent Alumnae Chapter.

I don’t know quite how she finds the time.  She’s been busy helping a neighbor, driving her to the doctor.  Fay also spends time volunteering at Clothes Less Traveled in Peachtree City, with the food pantry One Roof, with Newnan Presbyterian Church and with the Newnan Coweta Historical Society.  Fay is also a member of Alpha Delta Kappa, an international honorary organization of women educators.  But she has cut back a bit; she used to also volunteer with the Cancer Society and as a Pink Lady at Newnan Hospital.  Fay still enjoys making the 240 mile drive to her hometown in Florida, where she can still always find a group of her high school friends to get together for a lunch date!

Fay has been a Gamma Phi Beta since her initiation in 1951.  She attended her first Gamma Phi Convention a year later in 1952.  She’s been to 4 more since and is looking forward to Convention this summer right here in Atlanta.  Be sure to ask her about the time she took the train to Convention.

Actually, there’s a lot of ask her about.  You should really be sure to sit a spell with Miss Fay at the party.  Ask her about her 30+ years in the classroom teaching home ec and how her students still use what she taught.  And how she knows it.  Ask her about the students she still wonders about.   Fay will probably offer you a lemonade and a brownie.  And she’ll definitely offer you a warm smile and a charming story that will leave you with a smile of your own.

For all her hard work and all her smiles and charm, we thank Fay for everything she does for Gamma Phi Beta.  Our year wouldn’t get off to such a great start without her!
