Sorority Girls Remain Close Over Sixty Years

Sorority Girls Remain Close Over Sixty Years

In 1947 a chapter of Beta Sigma Phi Sorority was organized in Mount Vernon. We now have 10 girls surviving. They are: Nancy Allen, Mary Blanchard, Mary Coffing, Sylvia Cornell, Grace Hubbell, Barb Lorey, Millie Pealer, Dorothy Rex, Ellen Shultz and Barb Spearman. We have been like sisters. Always helping one another when needed. We have taken trips together and have attended any event one of us would be celebrating. Local community events receive our support both financially and our labor.

Some of the services we have supported include Habitat for Humanity, Cancer Research, Scholarships for college students, Hope/Now, which is a local organization who help people in need, Food for the Hungry and the homeless.

Fundraisers are popular with us and we have had many. Our Trick or Treat Auction is a favorite.

Pathways to Friendship is our theme this year and we are helping one another make each pathway better, not only for ourselves, but for others.

Now that we are in our seventies and eighties, we have slowed down a bit. We still play various card games and board games.

Our friendships are standing the test of time.

-Dorothy Rex, Mount Vernon, Ohio

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
