Gamma Phi Gets Fit – Snowshoeing/Hiking is canceled

The Golden Gate State Park snowshoeing/hiking event is canceled.  Snow came – Yea!  But, melted.  Now, the trail is too muddy.  See you ice skating at Evergreen Lake on March 1st!

Janice Hill

It is with sadness that we learned about the passing of Tau alumna, Janice Hill, last weekend.  She took a spill down the stairs and suffered head injuries from which she never recovered.  She served as the treasurer for the Fort Collins alumnae group and was always supportive of the Tau collegians and all of their activities.  Services will be Saturday, January 24 at St Johns Lutheran Church in Fort Collins at 11:00 am.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends. .
