Dear DG Sisters,
When we join Delta Gamma in college, we're taught that DG is more than just a collegiate experience; it is a lifetime of commitment, support and opportunities. A couple of weeks ago, I got a cool glimpse into what lifelong DG membership looks like. Friday afternoon, I had the privilege of joining Silver Streakers group for their bi-monthly luncheon. In case you don't know them, the Silver Streakers is a group of women who have been Delta Gammas for 50+ years and a more interesting and vibrant group of women would be hard to find! This standing lunch date has been on the calendar for many years.
On Sunday of the same weekend, the Beta Kappa chapter at KU initiated its new member class. Spending time with the newly initiated and the 50 year + members in the same weekend is like seeing a panoramic picture of a lifetime of Delta Gamma!. As college seniors shared their stories of fun and friendship with the new members, I couldn’t help thinking of the group of more than twenty women I’d shared lunch with on Friday. Most of these women were not even in college together; they became friends as alumnae. College really is just the beginning! It is never too late to become involved as an alumna!
I hope you can make it to our November 14th event at Indian Hills Country Club. Jenny Steffens Hobick (Mu) will be sharing holiday entertaining ideas that are sure to inspire!
Start your holiday season with good cheer at our annual holiday brunch on Saturday, December 2 at Grand Street Cafe. Check out the programming section for all the details of these gatherings.
The popular neighborhood meetings return in January! Plans are underway and we still need a few sisters to volunteer to host a meeting in the Northland area and the 64114 area. You're not all on your own - the Programming team will help you with the planning & invitations. Please contact Rosalind Finch email@example.com if you would like to host a meeting.
We are grateful to each of you who have paid your 2017-18 local dues. Your support is vital to the success of our chapter. To find out how we put your local dues to work, keep reading to see all the many good things that are happening in our Kansas City Delta Gamma chapter. We can't do it without your help.
Enjoy the brisk fall weather and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
In the bonds,
Susan Kastner, Mu
