used for expenses involved in Career Development Events,
Leadership Conferences, and other expenses of the chapter. The

picking up the apples used for the apple pie sale. Also thank
you to WinCo for the donation of a gift certificate for the use
in buying supplies for the sale. And thank you to all the people
