Zeta Phi Beta works hard for River Parishes
Members of the chapter saw the need to educate those residing in the surrounding parishes of St. Charles, St. John the Baptist and St. James, as well as anyone visiting Wal-Mart.
Voter registration forms were available and provided to individuals who expressed an interest in registering.
Information was available and provided on important dates for the upcoming state and parish wide primary and general elections scheduled for October 22, 2011 and November 19, 2011. Residents of the various parishes were given the opportunity to register to vote and/or change their address in order to exercise their voting rights in the district where they currently reside.
Due to the many changes impacting the lives of our citizens, Upsilon Mu Zeta Chapter demonstrated the importance of being educated on deadlines that are set for the primary and general elections.
This affords the citizens of Louisiana the opportunity to get out and exercise their voting rights. The public was made privy of the importance of having the correct address on file due to redistricting and the possibility of a change in polling places.
Highway 51 around the I-10 and I-55 interchanges looks a little cleaner thanks to the members of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated, Upsilon Mu Zeta Chapter. The chapter adopted Highway 51 through the Adopt-a-Road program with the State of Louisiana Department of Transportation.
Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated was founded on January 16, 1920, as an idea conceived by five students at Howard University in Washington, D.C.
The Founders of Zeta dared to depart from the traditional coalitions for black women and sought to establish a new organization predicated on the precepts of Scholarship, Service, Sisterly Love and Finer Womanhood.
The sorority is classified as a non-profit service organization 501 (c) 7. Zeta’s national and local programs include endowment of its National Educational Foundation, community outreach services and support of affiliate organizations.
Upsilon Mu Zeta Chapter members envisioned implementing Zeta’s programs that provides volunteer-service, educate the public, assist youth, provide scholarships, support organized charities and promote legislation for social and civic change.
The chapter was chartered on October 22, 2005 by the 22nd International President of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. All members of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. in the River Parishes area are welcome to attend the monthly chapter meeting.
The chapter meets monthly, on the 3rd Wednesday at 6:30 p.m., at the St. Charles Parish East Regional Library. For more information, visit Upsilon Mu Zeta Chapter at http://www.upsilonmuzeta.org or the national website at http://www.zphib1920.org.
