Sister and Husband Assist With Summer Camps in the Philippines

In April 2013, Jessica Carter O'Brien and her husband, Kelly, took a two-week trip to the Philippines, where they helped with activities at church-sponsored summer camps. Based in Iloilo City, they also helped with camps in Cebu and Sara, partnering with churches in each city.

This was Jessica's third trip to the Philippines and the first for Kelly. Comments Jessica, an initiate of Psi Mu/U of Central Florida, "We both had a great time trying different foods, taking in the sights, and, of course, having fun with the kids."

Memory Quilts Made for Chi Omega Sister

quilt1.jpgWhen Pam Hirschbach Batten, Kappa/U of Nebraska, described how she'd been keeping a box full of her deceased Chi Omega daughter's garments, pledge Sister Bev Ferris Thurber suggested that Pam make a quilt. A year later, when Pam, a non-quilter, hadn't started the project, Bev said, "I would love to make it," and Margrethe Plum Ahlschwede, also a pledge Sister, said, "I'll help."

What developed over the fall of 2012 became three quilts; one for Pam and one for each of her granddaughters, Quincy and Kennedy, crafted with love in memory of Pam's daughter, Britni Osterhout Cooper, Zeta Beta/U of Arizona. Britni and her younger brother, Matt both died of Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome, Matt in 1987 and Britni in 2002, when Britni's daughters were six and eight.

Though Pam lives in Tucson, she has participated in Kappa Chapter's annual Eleusinia for many years. And while the three Kappa sisters had kept in touch since graduation, it was during the 50th reunion of their pledge class that the conversations began that resulted in the three quilts.

These gifts of Sisterly affected were presented to Pam at a small gathering the weekend of 2013 Eleusinia where, by popular request, one of the quilts and the story behind them became part of the luncheon program.
