Hidden Dove Found During State Day of Service

The first Saturday of November is designated as Georgia’s State Day of Service.  Each chapter is asked to participate in a service project of their choosing that fits within the current national initiatives.  This year, one of the primary focus areas was Elder Care.  The Omicron Kappa Zeta Chapter of College Park, GA has partnered with Summerset Assisted Living Facility and planned multiple activities with the residents for our State Day of Service Project.  We planned an upbeat Sit and Be Fit Z-HOPE Activity that got the crowd moving!  Following our warm up, we played several rounds of Bingo which proved to be serious business!  Prizes were awarded to residents which were very well received.  

Chapter members had a great time.  Just spending time with these seasoned men and women was rewarding enough, but what was truly rewarding was having the privilege to meet a Soror who was a resident of this facility.  Soror Sanders became a member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. at Claflin University in Orangeburg, SC in1951 which means she is a Zeta Dove.  She was excited that we were there and so proud to say that we were her Sorors.  She was extremely sweet and grateful to have the opportunity to fellowship with our chapter.  Not only have we adopted Summerset Assisted Living Facility, but we have also adopted Soror Sanders.  Whatever she needs, Omicron Kappa Zeta will be there for her because that is what sisters do!
