A suggestion to transfer her Sullivan membership to the Alpha chapter has opened up a whole new side of Bloomington to Chelsea Jones, a legacy Tri Kappa member through her mother, Helen.
“I always tell people it’s a small town, but it’s amazing how many people you just don’t cross paths with,” Chelsea says.
Chelsea is on the younger end of the Tri Kappa age spectrum. And as a single jewelry-maker with her own company, Tactile Melodies, she is surprised at the friendships she’s forged with Tri Kappas from all walks of life.
“If there were ever any stinkers in the bunch, they must have worked themselves out,” she jokes.
An Indiana University graduate with a major in fine arts, Chelsea is unique in that she makes a living doing what she loves. Her artistic abilities come in handy while she updates the Tri Kappa website for the Communications Committee. She also served two-year term as recording secretary awhile back.
While her favorite fundraiser has been the annual Flower Sale, she admits she might have to throw her allegiance a different way today.
“Now I might say Blingo,” she says. “That was an exciting new thing.”
