Jackson Area Alumnae Panhellenic Association

The Jackson Area Alumnae Panhellenic Association, JAAPA, is hosting the 2015 Athena Luncheon Wednesday, March 25, at 11:30 a.m. at Manship Restaurant in the Belhaven Building, 1200 North State Street, across from Baptist Hospital. The luncheon will honor local Panhellenic members with the Athena Awards, award the 2015 JAAPA scholarship, and present this years philanthropy Make-A-Wish with a donation.

The Athena Awards are given out for two categories for Service to Community and Service to Sorority. Local alumni group was asked to submit nominations of a women who embodies each award. Our biggest undertaking each year is our Philanthropic Fund Raiser. This year JAAPA hosted a raffle to raise money for Make-A-Wish and provide the scholarship
awarded to a sorority collegian at Millsaps College. The 2015 JAAPA Scholarship will be presented to Faith Chamness the current Panhellenic President at Millsaps College. She is a member of Delta Delta Delta Sorority and served as the delegate to Millsaps Panhellenic for the past two years. We hope you will mark your calendars to attend.

J.A.A.P.A. is affiliated with the National Panhellenic conference and offers sorority women a chance to meet each other and become involved in social, educational and philanthropic endeavors. This is a great way to maintain the bonds of sisterhood that you started in college with members of your own sorority, as well as members of other NPC fraternities. Currently, there are fourteen alumnae groups involved with JAAPA in the Jackson, MS Metro Area.

JAAPA, also works each year to educate high school senior women about sororities and the recruitment (formerly known as RUSH) process. Fore more recruitment information look for upcoming news on our website http://www.jacksonpanhellenic.com/.

A Day of Quilting

A Day of Quilting
Come join us at the Craftsmen's Guild of Mississippi on March 28 for a day of quilting. From beginners to masters, we'll have a whole range of quilters on hand, and we'd love to see your smiling faces!

This event will have:

Quilters from half a dozen or more local groups who will be demonstrating everything from cutting and piecing to quilting and binding.

We also have a hand quilter who will have her floor frame set up along with the machine quilters.

We'll have several make-and-take tables for people to try their hand at some quick projects, including a project from the Pine Belt Quilters from Hattiesburg.

(Anyone who would like to join in is welcome to bring their own project and sewing machine and sew along with us. There will be plenty of quilters available to answer any questions and give any suggestions or guidance requested.)


This event is presented in the spirit of the old fashioned quilting bees, where the community gathered and worked together to complete quilts, catch up on news of each other and maybe learn a new technique or skill in the process.

Please join us for a few minutes or all day. We promise it will be a riot (of color!)
