It’s November, which means it’s not only time for my next Satrap’s Corner, but it’s also time to remember what we are thankful for and take some extra time to visit family. I feel very grateful for not only my husband, my biological family and my in-laws but also for my family of Kappa Psi Brothers. While my biological family is hours and hours away in New York, Philadelphia, St. John’s, Newfoundland, etc., I am fortunate to have my Mid-America Province Kappa Psi Brothers within 8 hours driving distance or less of my home. This fact has brought me so much comfort for over 4 years, and I wanted to thank you all for inviting me into your homes to celebrate important family events, like charterings, pinning ceremonies, initiations, graduation rituals, and more. I’m trying to take some extra time this Thanksgiving season to visit you all before the weather gets worse and starts to make traveling more of a challenge, so thank you all for welcoming me in.
I am also very thankful for the chance to serve as Mid-America Province Satrap and for the incredible support from our executive board. We are hard at work preparing for our next conclave coming up on March 10th and 11th in Lawrence, Kansas! I can’t believe Rho Chapter is about to host the 10th Mid-America Province Conclave! My very first conclave was actually the second MAP conclave, which was held in Lawrence, Kansas, so it is exciting to return. When I was a Neophyte, anxiously serving as delegate for the first time, I had no idea that 4 short years later, I would return as satrap. My Mid-America Province Brothers have helped me to accomplish more than I ever could have realized as a Neophyte back in Spring of 2013. For that, I am incredibly grateful.
