St. Luke’s Health-Memorial Lufkin is sending a little Christmas joy home with each new family. Thanks to the Epsilon Kappa Master Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi, an international social, service and cultural organization for women, each baby born in the month of December will receive a tiny red stocking cap keepsake. For the past 25 years, the ladies of Beta Sigma Phi have been designing and sewing the red caps for Memorial’s newest arrivals.
“Making these red caps has become a tradition for us. It’s part of our Christmas celebration each year,” said Suzanne Bell, Vice President of Epsilon Kappa Master Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi. “Some of our members have changed throughout the year, but we have some ladies who have been doing this for all 25-plus years. We love seeing the babies in their hats. It’s just something we enjoy doing.”
