2. Campus or community projects, activities, or events:

Our chapter does a lot of individual volunteering in our community of Maryville, Missouri. We serve a multitude of different churches and centers that help community members who have a low income as well as serving our University through various volunteer opportunities as well. This year we hosted an Etiquette Dinner in which we invited some community members to join and learn about etiquette when at a business dinner or just practicing it in everyday life.

3. Tentative plans for next year

Next year we would like to become more involved in our community. Our plan is to host the Catwalk which is an event in which we raise money to help support Cystic Fibrosis Research as well as showcase some student's projects that focus on promoting community health and wellness. It is a great way for us to get to know our community more and we missed the opportunity to do that this year.
