Officer/Chair Retreat Fall 2017

Turner Falls, OK





    On the August 25th and 26th 2017 our North Texas Sweetheart officers and their chairs took the drive up to Oklahoma to spend quality time with one another. These woman spent one night together, most chairs with their specific officer, and they learned so much about one another! The sisterhood chairs did a a wonderful job in planning various games and activities to do while at the hotel. 
    These woman also attended dinner together at a nearby local restraunt where they even got to celebrate a fellow sisters birthday! (Happy Birthday Alyssa S.!) Once the festivities were over they were able to head to bed to rest up for their morning adventure at Turner Falls. Everything about this retreat was very relaxed and there was no rush what so ever. They all woke up and had breakfast together and checked out of the hotel. By the time checkout was over they headed to grab lunch before embarking on their next adventure. The drive was painless and the scenery was incredible. Once arrived at the park these women went straight to see the star of the show, the waterfall! This view was truly amazing and made for great photos to take together! Once the photo shoot was over they were off to hike all around the waterfall, this was challenging for some but managleable with our sisters. To cool off from the hike most of our sisters started making their way into a shallow portion of water. The sights were amazing and the bonds made during those two days are now unbreakable.
    This experince was one that these women will remember for a lifetime. These are the sisterly bonds that we talk about in our mission statement and hope to enhance our college experince. Even though this retreat may have lasted only two days, our memories will last forever. This experince was great and all of the women learned so much about one another. The purpose of this retreat was to make the bond between the officers and their chairs strong so that they can enter the year ready to lead one of the best orginizations on campus. Thanks to our sisterhood chairs and vice president this goal was achived and the officers and chairs cannot wait to begin their duties!
