    Order of the Sedge and Bee


    Have fun! Support ARCE-NC! Join the Order of the Sedge & Bee


    Did you know that only $9 of your annual ARCE membership dues go to our chapter for programs, irrespective of your donor level? ARCE-Northern California must pay to bring the world's great Egyptologists to Berkeley for monthly talks. Now, you can help support these free public lectures and other chapter programs by joining our new social auxiliary, the Order of the Sedge and Bee. Members get a special pin and invitations to at least two Sedge and Bee parties a year. Our first party was April 29 at the home of chapter membership chair Gabrielle Essner. 


    Sedge and Bee is based on a similar, very successful group formed by ARCE-North Texas more than 10 years ago. When ARCE-NT members Dave and Teri Kuhlmann moved to San Jose and joined our chapter, they brought the seed of this idea and helped make it happen. Teri and our longtime member Gary Parks collaborated on the terrific design for our Sedge and Bee pin. So far, 24 chapter members have joined. 


    Membership in Sedge and Bee is open to all ARCE-NC chapter members in good standing. Dues go 100 percent to support chapter programs and are fully tax-deductible. To join for the 2017 calendar year, send a check for $40 ($60 for couples) payable to ARCE-NC to chapter treasurer Ryan Helton at 222 Edinburgh St. SF, CA 94112. Or join via PayPal on the chapter website for $42 ($64 for couples) -- the surcharge covers PayPal fees.  Note on the check or in an email to Ryan ( and vice president Barbara Wilcox ( that you would like to be part of Sedge and Bee.
