Thank you to all of you who attended our Summer BBQ Party on July 21st.  We raised over a $1,000 that afternoon for our chapter and our scholarship fund.  We were joined by the group from Alabama: National Alumni Association President: Sabrina Skelton Keating, James Horn from the University’s alumni office, and the 2012 Women’s Softball National Championship Coach Patrick Murphy.  As always, they were very complimentary to our chapter and they can’t wait to visit us again and join us for a game watching party at The Houndstooth or Another Round!
