Beta Sigma Phi has been a part of my life for as,long as I can remember My mother Betty Mor. gan joined in 1975 when my older brother was a,baby My mom and her sisters have been lighting. up my life and lighting my path for my entire life. I remember when I was a little girl and the ladies came. over for meetings in their nice clothes complete with. lipstick and heels I remember helping polish silver so. that everything would be just right for my mom s, meetings She always hosted her meetings in the for.
mal living room of our house and I would sometimes sit. hiding in the entryway to hear the ladies laughing to. gether Sometimes there would be leftovers from the. special dessert that we would get to taste What a treat. As I got older I sometimes got to help with meetings I. remember one Christmas social in particular when the. ladies of my mom s chapter had a progressive dinner. Our house was the main course location I was dressed. up in a red plaid skirt that had a matching white blouse. with a big collar trimmed in a plaid ruffle to match the. skirt I got to greet all of the ladies and their husbands as. they arrived at our house I felt so grown up and I was. so proud to be playing hostess for my mom s friends. My mom always let me know what Beta Sigma Phi,meant to her and I got to see the work the ladies. did to help our community donating to the local,food pantry creating food baskets for needy fami. lies buying and wrapping presents for less fortunate. children My mom and her sisters set an example for. me and I am proud to be not only her daugh,ter but her sister and friend in Beta Sigma Phi. As a special treat here s a recipe for one of the desserts. that I remember my mom making for her Beta Sigma, Phi meetings The inclusion of oleo certainly dates this. recipe I haven t heard anyone say that in years I ve. made it with butter too and these brownies are just. as delicious as I remember I hope you enjoy them,December 2013 January 2014 The Torch 5.
