CHAPTERS IN ACTION

The North Carolina Lambda chapter at Western Carolina University had a major project this last year. It organized meetings working with other groups to create a public park around an ancient Indian Mound in Franklin, N.C. Students worked to contact schools on the project and strengthen attendance at meetings. They worked with the town of Franklin and Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians. Signage is planned at the park on early history of the mound. The Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians is only 30 minutes from the campus at WCU.

At Wayne State College, the Nebraska Delta chapter sponsored a Graduate School Workshop to provide information for students interested in continuing their education. They hosted a guest speaker, Christina Anderson, who spoke on "Fighting for Abused Children: The Child Advocacy Story". This chapter also hosted "Election Reflection," a post-election wrap-up of national and local results of the 2008 election. It planned and hosted the year-end Social Sciences Banquet, and also coordinated a retirement ceremony and purchased gifts for outgoing faculty members. Approximately 45 students and faculty members were in attendance at the chapter's popular social activity: "Faculty vs. Students Bowling Challenge."

The Pennsylvania Alpha chapter at Grove City College participated in a coin counting pizza party as part of the Loose Change to Loosen Chains Project. It helped sponsor the Sunset Sprint 5k race to fund the Grove City Hospital Lifeline Service.

The Philippine Beta chapter at De La Salle University held a forum on "The Challenges of the Social Sciences in the Philippines" last February. In November 2008, the chapter held its induction of new members which was followed by a forum on "The Social Sciences in Everyday Life." This was held in collaboration with the Philippine Alpha chapter at the University of the Philippines.
