Chapter CB, Paragould, Arkansas, members gathered items to make “Happy Sacks” for the Cottey College basketball team playing in a tournament at Crowley’s Ridge College in early February. Several members met the team and coaches at their hotel upon their arrival, presented the sacks and spent time visiting with them. There was also a large box of chips and a large box of cookies donated for the team. Some members of Chapter CB attended the games in which Cottey College was playing.

Chapter BP, Norman, Oklahoma, was honored to host the Cottey College Softball team in the home of a sister on Friday evening, April 1, 2022. Our Cottey College Comets Softball team is an awesome group of young ladies. The softball team had played a double header in Chickasha, Oklahoma, that afternoon including a 30-minute rain delay. They had won one and lost one and were scheduled to play a double header again the next day in Oklahoma City. Together with their coach, assistant coach and bus driver, 20 young ladies rolled into Norman around 7:30 p.m. One of those young ladies is a sister in Chapter BP! Rather than the team going to get cleaned up and eating in a restaurant, Chapter BP and some BILs served up grilled hamburgers, hot dogs, fresh grilled veggies, baked beans, deviled eggs and chips. For dessert they were served cupcakes decorated to look like softballs. The atmosphere was casual and carefree. The chapter had a lot of fun getting to visit with these softball players that are from all over the United States. They were so appreciative of the home cooked meal – such an easy and enjoyable evening. The athletic calendars are proudly displayed on the Cottey website and Chapter BP encourages/challenges other chapters to go out and support our teams and maybe even offer them a home cooked meal when they are playing in your area. It’s a great way to show loving concern for our sisters and support for our own Cottey College students.
