This year’s Happy Hallidays gathering will be hosted by Sis. LeAnn Sherman X’96 and her husband, Fraser, on Saturday December 26th from 6p – 1a. For address and directions, please drop an email to the SAANC events coordinator!

From LeAnn:

Food, drink and literary-themed games provided. There is no need to bring anything except your awesomeness. If you would like to bring something, please bring drinks instead of food. (Our dogs can find the slightest bit of dropped bad-for-dogs food and vacuum it up in a nanosecond).

Hope to see many of you there!

Party ends promptly at 1 am because we are old. :)

SAANC Solstice Cookout

Bro. Dave Wright was incredibly generous and hosted the SAANC Summer Solstice Party at his house gorgeous house this year.  A number of St. A’s trekked out to the wilds west of Carrboro and partook of burgers and dogs – both foodstuff and four-legged – and chilled.  Sis. Rosenthal told us about her recent time in Israel; Sis. Jacobson gave me the straight dirt on a favorite old campfire story, that of the boa constrictor that may or may not have lived in the walls of the Annex; I got to see a number of St. A’s I haven’t seen in way too long and next year can’t come soon enough.

The point of all this is, of course, that I took some photos when I wasn’t gums-deep in a burger.  Lovely mental image, I know, but in comparison my photos will look great and that’s the point.  Even better:  some photos I took in June of flowers in the Hall’s front yard gardens.

Toast to Uncle Tony 2010

Lots and lots of Xi’s (and a couple of other chapters?) rolled up on Top of the Hill at the corner of Colombia and Franklin Streets in Chapel Hill this year.  There were many drinks and dinners and a lot of great conversation.  Who would have guessed that the undergrads are into Steeplechase races?  Not me, and I had a fascinating conversation about them with Sis. Joy Jennings, the current Alumni Correspondent for Xi chapter.

I did my best to document the occasion but the toasting part made it awfully difficult to hold the camera still for long periods of time.  Still, I thought you’d like to see the photos I took, even if one of them involves a particularly pronounced motion blur.
