Standing Up and Standing Out...
NATIONAL PROGRAM SPOTLIGHT ON OPERATION BIG BOOK BAG
As Lambda Sigma Sigma chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho sorority, Inc., embarks on a new sorority year (2017-2018), the mission is as clear as ever before: “Greater Service, Greater Progress.” The organization’s first event of the new sorority year, involved the group’s very focus- the Youth. Serving in one of the sorority’s national programs, Operation Big Book Bag, the chapter rallied parents and children, informing them of upcoming initiatives that serve as a benefit to families in the community, as well as provided school supplies for the kids.
Laughter and cheer filled the conference center at Merle Manders Saturday, July 29th 2017, as children and families from all over Henry County, celebrated going “Back to School” for the upcoming 2017-2018 school year.
Represented at the Henry County’s 3rd Annual Back to School Expo, were over 20 vendors that dealt with children and family services. Lambda Sigma Sigma’s table, center of the middle row, graced a board displaying background history on the organization, flyers promoting upcoming events, and business cards of the point-of-contact for all national programs- Soror Luv Brown. There were over 45 families who signed up to know more about what the sorority does and offers the community, as well as participate in future events, most notably, the Sigma Youth Symposium, which takes place every year in March.
As always, there were plenty of photos taken presenting togetherness among members, as well as the networking efforts solidifying future partnerships. Among important figures present was Councilman John Blount, who presented the chapter’s Epistoleus (historian) Soror L. Brown, with a token of appreciation for contributing in making the county’s Back to School bash a success! What an exceptional way to launch the new sorority year, as Sigma women are always on Fire to Serve!
