What a Week!
This week has been an amazing week for the Zeta Zeta chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma. Our former president, Anne Kainz, said “The PR is mind-blowingly fantastic, the Pie Eating Contest was a wild success as we raised $400 for Reading is Fundamental, the team for the CAB event won $200 for the Missouri School for the Deaf, and everyone’s participation in the SAE events is paying off for we have never dominated a philanthropy week like this before.” We are so blessed and are looking forward for many weeks much like this week to come!
Ashley Schimmel, an active member of Kappa, helps one of our guests create a color mountain! Both pose with a butterfly based of our event, The Very Hungry Kappapillar, to raise awareness of our philanthropy Reading is Fundamental.

Our monthly trips to the Missouri School for the Deaf have been so incredibly fun! It is such an amazing opportunity to craft with these kids; getting to learn some sign language on the side is a bonus! To prepare for our Reading is Fundamental events, we decided to make some butterflies!
What an Incredible day! The Very Hungry Kappapillar Pie Eating Contest raised $400 for our philanthropy Reading is Fundamental! We couldn’t have done it without the support of everyone who came and participated. Our former sister, Molly Dwyer, sure did a great job planning this event and we can’t wait to see what this events future holds! Once again, thank you so EVERYONE who came!
She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities. She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway. She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark. She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink. She is your sister.” ~ Barbara Alpert
In West Mo’s current state, our sisters are our study partners, teachers, and tutors due to finals. Keep studying hard, ladies!
"Oh Rebe… You are the best big/sister/best friend/partner in crime that a girl could ever ask for. Distance ain’t got nothing on us! I am going to miss you so much but I know that you are always a phone call and an hour and an half minute car ride away :) as always, this is the best non-romantic relationship I’ve ever had. Love you forever. -Your little"
On sunday, the Zeta Zeta chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma found out that we would be losing a great member, Rebe Rutledge. Rebe is such an intelligent and classy young woman who definitely knows how to make an impression in the best way possible. She is a great attribute to KKG and will be missed by many. Rebe, you will always have your sisters behind you in any step you decide to make.
“Sisterhood is so many things. It’s a warm smile on a cold & rainy day, a friendly hug, a cheerful hello…It’s all that a good & lasting friendship is, only better. It’s treasured. It’s sacred. It’s knowing that there will always be someone there for you. It’s dreams shared & goals achieved. It’s counting on others & being counted on. It is real…It is Kappa Kappa Gamma!!”
Thanksgiving has come and gone, and I know I can speak for KKG here at Westminster when I say how thankful we are to have each other.
Here’s a poem I found to show how thankful I am! Happy belated Thanksgiving everyone!
I’ve heard it said a sorority
Is a waste of time; but I know better…
For I have seen the love and walked
In the splendor of sisterhood…
I’ve heard it said that a sorority
Is sad; I can’t agree…
I’ve heard it said that a sorority
Is a dull, selfish place; It can’t be true…
I’ve seen the affection, watched it
Fill my heart, the very air…
And I have learned the Creed
Polished and spotless from end to end
And I’ve watched the sorority’s
Devotion drape each and every active
And pledge to look like nature’s
Freshly-granted love nourished for growth…
I’ve heard it said that a sorority is
Harmful, but they are wrong…
For I know my sisters…watched them
Strive to save a cause, spend of themselves…
And I’ve watched them hope, dream,
And aspire, side by side…
I’ve heard them say these things,
But I would disagree…
Because for every shadow I have
Seen a hundred rays of light…
For every plaintive note I’ve
Heard the symphony of joy…
For every penny-weight of bad,
I’ve found a ton of good…
Good in nature, in people, in my sorority…
I’m thankful I belong.
