Christmas Tea and Open House Texas Beta House at SMU

The beautiful Pi Beta Phi Christmas Tea was held at the Pi Beta Phi house at SMU this year!  It was quite a festive occasion with the Highland Park High School String Quartet, festive Christmas decorations, delicious food, glorious Christmas cookies and special friends!  The evening was chaired by the fabulous mother-daughter teams of Mary Cynthia Church and her daughter, Emily, and Vicki Ward and her daughter, Ellie.  The house was beautifully decorated for Christmas by Lee Rury, Michelle Collins, and Margaret Ann Purse.  We wholeheartedly thank these talented ladies for providing such a beautiful, special evening for all of us.
