October Monthly Meeting

It was a lovely Fall day on which to be entertained and educated by Mary Brinegar, President and CEO of the Dallas Arboretum!  We held our monthly meeting at the home of Tracey Beckwith where Mary's wonderful presentation highlighted the lovely gardens and upcoming exhibits of the Arboretum.  Dallas Pi Phi has a special relationship with the Arboretum after we made a large contribution to the Childrens' Garden and also donated hundreds of angels for last year's Degolyer exhibit.   Thank you to Sandra Hipps, Mauri Tardy and Lucina Thompson for serving as hostesses for this meeting.

Kickoff Meeting at Tootsies, September 18th

We had a great time kicking off our 2014-2015 Alumnae Club year on September 18th with a lively meeting at Tootsies!  All alumnae groups were represented, including the Day Group, Junior Day and Junior Night.  The event, wonderfully chaired by Sandra Hipps and JoAnne Moore, began with appetizers and wine downstairs where we could all visit and browse among Tootsies' lovely clothing, shoes and accessory items.  We then moved to the second floor where we held our business meeting and style show featuring our own Pi Phi models dressed in Tootsies fabulous outfits.  One of the highlights of the evening was the announcement of our upcoming Pi Phi Style Show and Luncheon, creatively themed  "Passport to Fashion"  to be held on April 7th, 2015.  We are extremely proud to announce that the beneficiaries of this luncheon are agencies dedicated to literacy and education in our community.  Our 2015 beneficiaries are:
