Semester Update/End of Year!

Wow, what an incredible year it’s been to be a Cardinal Key. The 2016-2017 school year brought countless challenges that never could have been anticipated, and though it hasn’t always been easy, we’re grateful for all the opportunities we had to grow. The good news is that despite our challenges, we’ve had a lot of fun along the way!

We welcomed 15 beautiful new women into our beloved organization…

…and we watched them grow into fully initiated members of Cardinal Key.

And CK alum Hannah Hyer gave a brilliant speech. Our new babies thanked her with a little CK love for her dog, Meryl!

We also had a great time at our “Under the C(K)” retreat, where we did “sea yoga,” made some pretty hilarious skits, and soaked up a lot of love.

Thanks to our retreat committee for planning it!

We danced the night away at our formal with Blue Key:

And of course, we found PLENTY of time for service this semester. We got in a lot of time at Manor Care, as always, and found the time to help out at some new places, like Take Root Cafe. To finish off the semester, we participated in a Service Cup Challenge with Blue Key and WON!!!

We’re so grateful for the love we’ve given and gotten in return. We’re thankful for this semester, this year, and every moment we’ve had together. As we look forward to the future, we do so with endless love and gratitude in our hearts.

Thinking Back, Looking Forward

Happy 2017 and welcome to another semester at Truman! As we look forward to all the next semester holds for us–new classes, the promise of warmer weather, and a new rush class–we also look back to reflect on the days behind us.

The fall semester was challenging and difficult at times, but it offered us a chance to learn, grow, and (of course) serve! Through all our individual challenges and successes, we were grateful for the days we got to spend together in service and friendship.

Take a look at some of the things we’ve been up to lately!

Dad’s Weekend 2016

Highway Cleanup

This is one of our favorite service events of the year. We love getting to do this together and we had GREAT weather this year, which made it that much more fun!

Homecoming 2016

Here we are waiting for the Homecoming parade to start–we befriended a horse who was a fellow parade-walker.

Susan, our lovely Homecoming court member and CK service chair.

After Homecoming festivities, we had a dessert party with current AND past CKs.

Fall 2017 Retreat

We had more than our fair share of fun at retreat…

…which was full of the usual shenanigans.

Thanks to our retreat committee for planning it for us!

We’re so grateful for all that our last semester brought us, and we can’t wait to see what’s in store this spring. Stay tuned for upcoming CK adventures!
