50/50 Raffle

Our Alpha Omega Reunion will kick off with the Alumni Dinner. At the dinner, we will open the 50/50 raffle. With a 50/50 raffle, half of the money raised goes towards a charity and the other half goes to the winning ticket holder. Our charity of choice is Project Rescue. Project Rescue is the philanthropy of Alpha Omega. They strive to rescue and restore victims of sexual slavery through God's love and power.

Since you do not have to be present to win, you can purchase tickets without having to be at the Reunion. Contact us today if you would like to purchase some!

Alumni Weekend Recap and 2015 Dues

Alumni Weekend 2015 was a blast! Thank you to everyone who came out for some great fellowship.

Friday night's dinner at Charanda's was delicious! And bowling was a blast. We were joined by a few of the current sisters and had fun at Rock Hill's newest entertainment spot--Rock Hill Revolutions. Check it out if you're in town.

Saturday's brunch was beautifully decorated and we had a wonderful time meeting the current sisters. They shared a great game all about connections so we could get to know each other better.
Following the brunch, we had a productive Alumni Chapter meeting. We nominated for the 2015-2017 executive board. We will email everyone soon with that information. We also discussed the responsibilities and general plan for the upcoming reunion. We will be announcing the date soon!

We are now accepting dues for 2015. Dues are $10 and can be paid with check to our Treasurer, Cheryl F. If you would like to pay via Paypal, we can make that happen! Just let us know and we'll send you the information you need to know to transfer money for your dues.
Dues are not required, but dues-paying members do have the privilege to vote in chapter matters. We are also looking at giving dues-paying members reduced ticket prices for the upcoming twenty year reunion.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! 2015 brings some fun things for the Alpha Omega Alumni Chapter.

As always, we have our annual Alumni Weekend in February. This year the festivities will be on February 6 and 7. We will start the weekend with the Alumni Dinner at our favorite Charanda Mexican Grill.

Following the Alumni Dinner we will go bowling! It was a ton of fun last year. It will either be at Strikers again or we might try the new Revolutions which is located at the Rock Hill mall. Start warming up your bowling arm!

Our weekend continues on Saturday with the Alumni Brunch. We will join Alpha Omega in fellowship. We are still waiting on the final details of this event from Alpha Omega, but it will most likely be held at the Shack at 10am. We will update you as soon as we have the final word.

And lastly, our weekend concludes with the Alumni Chapter meeting. This year we have a major thing to discuss...the twenty year reunion!

The reunion will be held in the fall and will feature all kinds of fun activities. If you are interested in being involved in the planning in any way, please let us know! The more, the merrier!
