Tri Kappa associates out of quarantine

Corydon Associate Chapter of Kappa Kappa Kappa is out of quarantine. Wearing masks and social distancing, chapter members had their regular March meeting at Old Capitol United Methodist Church.

During the COVID-19 quarantine, in honor of Tri Kappa Week, white carnations were delivered to several first responders in appreciation for all they do. Those receiving flowers were the Harrison County Health Dept., Harrison Township Fire Dept., Harrison County Hospital, including the nurses’ station and emergency room department, Harrison County EMTs and the sheriff’s department.

Members said they also greatly appreciate all the other first responders and are grateful for all that first responders do.

Harrison County Community Services reported that the chapter had donated 92 pounds of food and paper goods, although the chapter met a limited time during the pandemic.

Other chapter business for the evening included receiving new members, revising the bylaws and appointing a nominating committee to present a slate of officers.

Tri Kappa State Convention will be July 23 and 24 in Indianapolis.

March is Youth Art Month for all Tri Kappa chapters in Indiana.

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, an “Irish Blessing” was read by each member. One such blessing read was: “May your joys be as deep as the ocean, your troubles as light as its foam and may you find sweet peace of mind wherever you may roam.”

Hostesses for the meeting were Karen Walters, Kathy Baelz and Christine Pendleton.
