All Los Alamos Chapters of Beta Sigma Phi Sorority met to celebrate Founder’s Day on Sunday, April 30.  2023 marks the 92nd anniversary of the founding of the organization which originated during the Great Depression in 1931 in Kansas.

This is the first time since before Covid that all chapters were finally able to get together in person.  It was a lovely occasion and everyone had a good time.

During the event, Lyn Haval received a Degree Ritual and Claire Swinhoe was voted Woman of the Year for her chapter.

Also announced was the new theme for 2023/2024 which is “Watch Beta Sigma Phi Grow and Bloom”.  Beta Sigma Phi is an International Women’s Organization with Chapters spread throughout the world.
