OU President David Boren, Pi Phi Grand President Mary Loy Tatum, and chapter alumnae will meet for a luncheon and program on Saturday afternoon. The Centennial Ball is on Saturday evening, during which Pi Phis and their dates will gather for dinner and dancing to a live band.
Theme is “The Girls Are Back In Town” and alums can register for the events online at www.okalpha100.com. For more information, join the Oklahoma Alpha Pi Phi Centennial 2010 Facebook page.
“Coming to the centennial will give alumnae an opportunity to step back in time, remembering Pi Phi songs, friends, experiences, and college days,” Linda Rodgers said. “It will also give the collegians an opportunity to showcase the current sisterhood and their accomplishments.”
“Our goals are to recognize Oklahoma Alpha’s incredible history and place on the OU campus, to reunite and celebrate, to give the alumnae and actives a chance to celebrate together and to build excitement and interest in what lies ahead for Oklahoma Alpha,” Laura Hood said.
The committee’s goals include awareness of Pi Phi’s philanthropic efforts to promote literacy.
