Greensboro Chapter

History of Greensboro Chapter

The Greensboro Chapter of National Epicureans, formerly the Chit Chats, was comprised of then business and professional women who began having social gatherings in early 1972 on the weekends at least twice a month. On June 9, 1972, Sarah Price was invited to Durham, NC to the Friday night affair at the Durham sponsored conclave. Sarah met a number of wonderful Eppies and Eppos and knew right away that she wanted the Chit Chats to become affiliates. One of the Eppies she got to know best was a member of the Danville Chapter. Consequently, she contacted her for more information and invited her along with a few others to one of our social gatherings.

We were very impressed with the camaraderie and the purpose of the national organization and asked the Danville Chapter to sponsor us. They agreed to do so and we were on our way. We made application to National and Vice President Saberna Morris, and one other member of the Richmond Chapter came to Greensboro to visit us. We passed the entrance test and began planning our installation. We held the event at a local motel in downtown Greensboro. It was truly fantastic, a mini-conclave. Every chapter was represented with numerous members to witness National President: Lauretta Matthews install and welcome us into the Epicurean family. We had fun, fun, fun - Epicurean style.

We are proud to boast of having had two successful Conclaves entitled "Southern Hospitality with a Touch of Class" and Glitz, Glamour & Glee in Greensboro NC".

Two charter members: Eppie Joan "Pat" Finger and Eppie Shirlene R. Lynch. Additionally, Eppie, Joan "Pat" Finger became our twentieth National President.

Currently, we have 20 active members and continue to work diligently to fulfill our purpose.
