Members of Chapter DQ met at the home of Stephanie Connell for a 1 p.m. meeting and program on Tuesday, Nov. 12.

Lila Holler presided at the business meeting. A card was signed for Dorothy Chancellor, who is in a rehab facility in Spring Hill following a recent car accident.

Stephanie has contacted the group’s IPS student from India who expressed appreciation for the support and welcome she has received. Stephanie also read selections from the Plains Journal newsletter. The state president, Liz Meyers, suggested ways chapters can help in their local communities and encouraged involvement.

Since Meyers wrote her letter, she has unexpectedly died, so she was remembered with the reading of her obituary. The chapter voted to send a contribution to Cottey College in her memory.

In keeping with her hopes and ideas, DQ members spent time following the business meeting assembling personal care packages for Paola Middle and Paola High School girls and also for My Father’s House.

Michelle Latto, Elizabeth Davidson and Christy Levings brought items to assemble in Ziploc bags, and then they delivered the kits following the meeting.
