Each June, mothers attend a meeting to plan activities that provide meaningful experiences in the following categories: 1) Cultural, 2) Educational, 3) Civic, 4) Social, 5) Recreational, 6)Leadership, and 7) Legislative. The Teen Group, under the leadership of Teen Advisors Aretha Johnson, Portia Hood-Marshall and Holly Fields, plan their own activities. Group Mothers and Teen Advisors ensure that activities are carried out as planned. Activities are later evaluated for their effectiveness.
In addition to the scheduled monthly activities, we participate in Chapter activities as mandated by the National Organization. These include Jack and Jill Day and Carole Robertson Day celebrated each September, Founder's Day acknowledged in January, Associate Appreciation Program in February, Father's Appreciation and National Day of Fitness in April and and National Black Family Day which is celebrated the first Saturday in May.
