Treasury Tuesday: Rose and White
161 years ago, three amazing women created the Philomathian Society at Wesleyan College in Macon, Georgia. Today, that organization is now known as “Phi Mu Fraternity for Women”. I spent four years as a collegiate member and have since gone alum after graduating. While Founders Day was actually March 4th, I wanted to celebrate today and keep the momentum going! So proud to be a member of this organization.
To lend to those less fortunate a helping hand.
To think of God as a protector and guide of us all.
To keep forever sacred the memory of those we have loved and lost.
To be to others what we would they would be to us.
To keep our lives gentle, merciful and just, Thus being true to the womanhood of love.
To walk in the way of honor, guarding the purity of our thoughts and deeds.
Being steadfast in every duty small or large.
Believing that our given word is binding.
Striving to esteem the inner man above culture, wealth or pedigree.
Being honorable, courteous, tender, Thus being true to the womanhood of honor.
To serve in the light of truth avoiding egotism, narrowness and scorn.
To give freely of our sympathies.
To reverence God as our Maker, striving to serve Him in all things.
To minister to the needy and unfortunate.
To practice day by day love, honor, truth.
Thus keeping true to the meaning, spirit and reality of Phi Mu.
