The Lambda Epsilon Sigma Salisbury-Rowan Alumnae Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Inc. will be accepting applications for membership. The informational meeting will be held at Rowan Public Library on Saturday.
This is open to women with four-year degrees from an accredited institution who are interested in serving Rowan County and surrounding areas. For those without a degree, the organization is accepting applications for its Philo Affiliate.
The organization will kick off its Mwanamugimu Essay contest for middle and high school students. The goal is for students to increase their knowledge of the historical and contemporary development of Africa.

The chapter will also collect school uniforms during January for area students. Additionally, they plan to participate in the Martin Luther King Jr. events held in Salisbury on Sunday and next Monday.
The chapter is also looking for locations to host its Youth Symposium for middle and high school students as well as its Community Baby Shower.
Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority’s aim is to enhance the quality of life within the community. Public service, leadership development and education of youth are the hallmark of the organizationís programs and activities.
