Dear PAK Sisters,
Please continue to keep Merrilyn Anthony in your prayers. She is at the Promise unit at River Region West.
Also lift up Helene Benson who will be having gallbladder surgery next Tuesday. They had planned surgery for this Tuesday (the 17th), but she got the flu.
Thank you for sharing these concerns with your sisters.
Please mark your calendars for June 5 & 6 and our national convention. Great plans are underway and we want to have a great turnout and lots of fun!

Pat Stamm seated with her sister, Dorothy Neill, standing who lives in Tallulah, LA, and joined us in the celebration.
Pat Stamm, with Vera Marshall Brown and Ina Lott Whittington, hosted our Valentine's Day Party/Meeting last night at Pat's (Cannon Gates Apartment Club House) and everyone really enjoyed being there. Not everyone could attend but they really missed a good time. We had our meeting first and then enjoyed our Valentine treats. Afterwards, we handed out our secret sisters gifts. Our philanthropic was Haven House Family Shelter of personal care items, gift cards, dishes, etc.

Our Pi Alpha Kappa's 3rd annual Valentine-themed musical event, To Vicksburg with Love, will be at noon today at the Southern Cultural Heritage Center, formally St. Francis Xavier Academy, the school I graduated from in the Class of 1959. Our chapter, Omega, will serve as hostesses. The lunchtime concert theme is Melodies and Memories and will feature the music of Vicksburg natives, Norman and Jane Joseph of Clinton, MS. The pair will entertain while guest eat food prepared by our sorority.
As an addition to this year's festivities, Regina Gailani, owner of Art & Soul on Washington Street, designed a necklace, made of Swarovski crystal and nuggets of carnelian stone, that will be raffled at the event. Proceeds will benefit our PAK's scholarship fun.
Gailani designed jewelry worn by Miss Mississippi Christine Kozlowski during the Miss American pageant last month.
