Giving Tree- Beta Club accepts donations year-round for this program.  Last December Betas made ornaments for the tree, and the community took the ornaments & purchased gifts for our students who are in need.  23 families received food baskets, and 76 gifts were distributed.  Each year we find we have more students who are in need at Christmas.

Homecoming- January Beta Club is responsible for the coronation ceremony and dance afterward.  This is usually a week-long event that requires much work by the betas in order to ensure the stage is decorated in time.
