Enrichment and Inspiration for Beta Sigma Phi Sisters from Marilyn Ross
The Golden Circle has been established to honor those members of Beta Sigma Phi who have been active in the organization for 50 years. It is meant to express the appreciation of their sisters and of the International organization for these distinguished members.
A member who has been a Beta Sigma Phi for 50 years is qualified. The 50 years may include time the member was on leave of absence, member-at-large or inactive. International requires no certification of the member's eligibility.
The Golden Circle ritual may be presented by a chapter or a city council. It may be presented at a regular chapter meeting or at a special social event. A city council may present the ritual at a special social event or at a Founder's Day observance.
The ritual should be read by another 50 year member if possible or by a member especially selected for the honor. It is given to any member only once.
The Golden Circle certificate and the Golden Circle pin are available through International's Gift Department. Call the toll-free gift department number (1-800-821-3989) for price information and to place your order. To allow for mailing time, please order at least three weeks in advance of the planned date of the ritual.
