It’s been a while since our last blog so we’ll share just a few highlights during the holiday season…
With various activities listed on our “to-do“ calendar, we kicked the season off in showing solidarity with March of Dimes (MOD), an organization whose mission is geared towards the health of babies, by wearing purple on November 17th in support of Prematurity Awareness Day. Because we respect the work of MOD and value our relationship with them, our chapter, QOZ, will participate in a March for Babies walk in April 2015. This is extremely important to us so please stay tuned for more information about how you can help us reach our goal of raising $1500.
In other news, Sorors Tamara Murray and Michelle Vance attended the Southeastern Regional Conference in Charleston, South Carolina from November 20th – November 23rd. This amaZing experience allowed two outstanding women to represent our outstanding chapter and connect with other sorors in the Southeastern Region. There’s no mistake about it, our region lives up to the “Proud History of Being ‘Second to None’ in Zeta!”
Next, there is no better way to celebrate the holidays than giving back to our beloved community! During the entire month of November, we launched our canned goods and non-perishable food drive, and we are delighted to announce that we collected over 300 food items! As in years past, the collaborative efforts of Promiseland Baptist Church and QOZ yielded hot meals for the needy during the Thanksgiving Care to Share event on November 27th. The Omega Omicron Zeta chapter is humbled, yet thrilled, that we were able to serve 575 meals, touching the lives of our fellow Brevard County residents.
Finally… We turned two!!!! On December 2, 2012, the Omega Omicron Zeta chapter was chartered because of the work of six BLUtiful women who came together and remedied the problem of no official representation of Zetas in the Brevard County area. Although all of the original six are no longer here, we thank them and we honor them for the opportunity to serve our community under the umbrella of our illustrious organization, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., by moving forward and continuing to do the work of ZETA!!!
Well, this is it for the glance over the holidays. Omega Omicron Zeta will be buZy this year. We look forward to sharing our LOVE for ZETA and our BREVARD COMMUNITY with you!
Happy New Year!
Well, we DID it!!! We have come to the end of a SPECTACULAR service year. Although our service year consisted of only 6 months, we accomplished quite a bit within that short period of time:
Lord, thank you for allowing us to be YOUR heart, YOUR hands, YOUR feet on this earth. Help us to have pure motives at all times and to do EVERYTHING as unto you! We realize that the impact of our efforts would be null and meaningless without your hands upon every project. We love you and we strive to display your love to our community.
Despite being a very new and small chapter, the ladies of Omega Omicron Zeta were determined to fully participate in our National observance of Finer Womanhood. Each day represented a value our chapter strives to model: Strength, Connection, Servant Leadership, Intellect and Cohesiveness. The five events planned were fun, meaningful, and AMAZING!!
