Sorority holds spring meeting

Recently, Pi Beta Phi sorority celebrated their spring meeting and luncheon at the home of Nancy Gastil.

The Golden Arrows present (those who have been sorority members for 50 years or more) were awarded cookies in the shapes of arrows and hearts to commemorate the day.

The Glendale-La Cañada Pi Phis are organizing their annual fundraiser to support Childrens Hospital of Los Angeles. Besides donating new books and more than $400 each year to this cause they will also be visiting the hospital in March to read books to the patients as an addition to their literacy project. This is in conjunction with the National Day of Service for Pi Beta Phi.

Upcoming events for the Glendale-La Cañada Pi Phi’s include The Glendale Area Alumnae Panhellenic Scholarship benefit luncheon on April 5 at the Oakmont Country Club, the Founders Day Luncheon in Pasadena on April 26 with the Pasadena club and the last meeting of the year on May 20 for dinner and the installation of the new officers.
