witnessed a continuation of being "of service to mankind" during the
1960-80 years. Contributions in the community included the School Milk
Fund, which paid for milk for children of unemployed families; Well Baby
Clinics; NAACP (life membership); Negro College Fund, YWCA; and Woodside
Receiving Hospital. May of 1962 was the date when the chapter made a
political statement when they presented the "Women of the Year Awards"
at the Young Women's Christian Association.
The highlight of this period occurred
when the chapter celebrated its 25th anniversary on May 11, 1974 at
Powers Auditorium with Soror Eva Evans, Great Lakes Regional Director as
the keynote speaker.
The annual Pink and Green Snowflake
Ball, which became the Snowflake Ball, continues to be an exciting fund
raiser where sorors and guests have an opportunity to fellowship and
have a good time while generating funds for the scholarship outreach
February 1980, sorority members Alnita
Bryant and Mary Lois Smith presented the sorority's national
publication, "The Heritage Series" to Curriculum Director Richard
Sheeley of the Youngstown City Schools so that copies could be placed in
each of the city schools. The "Heritage Series" features outstanding
African American women in the areas of politics, business, medicine,
dentistry and the judiciary.
