Sigma Master holds January meeting

Sigma Master Chapter, Beta Sigma Phi met for lunch at Marshall County Historical Museum on Jan. 11, with seven members, two guests present and one absent due to surgery.

President Diane Hobson thanked Dorothy Perry for hosting the day and roll call was taken with the question: “What New Year’s resolution have you made and kept?”

Minutes were read of the November and December gatherings by Recording Secretary Alice Nicholson, and Barb Noid reported treasurer’s balance.

Hobson received “Stars that Shine Through” book from International as Arlene Benson’s death was reported. The book was signed by all the members and will be given to the family.

Perry reported on members not present due to illness and change of address for Member at Large Romaine Mackaman in Ankeny.

Hobson collected more stamps, calendars for Veterans and can tabs. A reminder was also stated there would only be one meeting per month for January, February and March. The February meeting to be held the second Tuesday of the month and will be hosted by Jan Keller.

The meeting ended and a “Show and tell” by Nicholson with several pictures of both her maternal and paternal grandparents were enjoyed. Last month the chapter viewed the wedding dress of her paternal grandmother before it was taken to the Marshall County Museum for display along with the wedding picture obtained from relatives recently. They were married in 1895 in Haverhill. Her maternal grandpa was the owner of an ice cream/creamery shop on State Street, Marshalltown, with his picture in the shop during 1900’s, along with a passport in 1925 to Europe to visit family.
