As I have mentioned before, I'm a proud Sorority Alumna - I am a Chi Omega! I'm actively involved in the National organization and was recently asked to help recruit local Alumnae volunteers for our NCSU ChiO Chapter's Recruitment (formerly known as "RUSH").
I wanted to say "thank you" to the women who are volunteering many hours of their weekend (this weekend) for Chi Omega, so I set my creative mind to work...I ran across some peppermint patties while shopping yesterday, and thought "how cute would it be to thank the Alumnae for helping with Recruit-MINT"!?
I bought 3 bags of the chocolate-covered goodies, took them home, (ate a few!) and put 3 peppermint patties, each, in little clear baggies. (I had some small ziploc-like bags left over from our wedding).
Then, I counted out the number of volunteers for each "shift", and put those baggies in a larger, clear cellophane bag (which I also had on-hand) - then, hand-wrote a little "thank you!" I tied everything up with Cardinal & Straw (red & yellow) ribbon, curled it with a pair of scissors...and voila! Here's the end product:
I'm so thankful to have wonderful Chi Omega Sisters to help NCSU with their Recruit-MINT!
Best wishes to the Alpha Kappa Chapter of ChiO this weekend and a warm welcome to all the new "baby hooties" next week!!
