Epsilon Sigma Alpha, a philanthropic, educational and social sorority, is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year.

The group was founded in Jamestown, Texas, in 1929 to give working women an opportunity to meet socially, to continue to learn and to give service to the less fortunate.In Utah there are 12 active chapters of the organization. Each chapter has its own local projects. Local chapters also band together to work on one big project each year. The state project this year is the Shelter School for the Homeless.

St. Judes Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, Tenn., is the national project each year.

Several activities have been held or are being planned by Utah chapters of ESA for the coming months. Beta Zeta Chapter of Green River held a Founders Day luncheon on May 5 for all state members. A state convention will be held in Ogden May 19-21. State ESA president Toni Marie Foote of Salt Lake City will preside.
