There’s a reason for everything.

Sometimes I am amazed at how things in my life that were

at one time seperate and distinct interests, are actually

related.

For instance, I am a sorority woman. Anyone who knows me

in person knows this and I am proud of my affiliation. I

truly believe in the ideals of my organization and its

core values. I am actually quite amused that “Lifelong

Learning” is one of the core values of my sorority – what

better value for a librarian?

Today I was just browsing the net and was looking at the

philanthropies of different groups. Now Pi Beta Phi was not

on my campus but I have met some Pi Phis. They were

really nice. One of Pi Phi’s philanthropies is

Arrow in the Arctic. With a philanthropy like that, I’m

sure if that sorority had been on my campus, I would have

been drawn to it. How could I resist a sorority that

supports Northern libraries? I know the

Arrow

in the Arctic
may be a bit out of date (I don’t think

it’s been updated since 2003) but it’s still really nice

to see those excerpts from the libraries thanking for

donations. I think this is a great thing that they’ve

done. Well, I think anything that gets young people to do

fundraisers for good causes is a good thing. I know the

local chapter here of my sorority is in the middle of

planning their big fundraiser for the year. I can’t wait

to see how it turns out.
