Other Salisbury chapters in attendance were Lambda Master, Xi Delta Chi and Xi Alpha Delta.
On Feb. 5, the Iota Psi chapter bestowed degrees on members in candlelight and yellow rose rituals by president Gail Young. Member Brenda Barger received the Laureate degree and Gerri Butler received the Exemplar Ritual. Gerri Butler’s granddaughter, Exemplar D. Anne Simerson, pinned her grandmother. Mrs. Butler, in her 90s, is the oldest member in the Salisbury chapters of Beta Sigma Phi.
On Feb. 19, the Iota Psi chapter entertained sister chapter Xi Delta Chi with a covered dish dinner and entertainment by a balloon artist.
Member Karen Smith announced to her chapter she will be graduating from Rowan-Cabarrus Community College in May with two associate degrees, two diplomas and a certificate.
