Passport to Sisterhood

Hello Sisters!

We're off to a great start with our Twin Cities ZTA Alumnae Events! Our theme for the year is "Passport to Sisterhood"! Travel with us around the Twin Cities as we celebrate our sisterhood and support our local community. We can't wait to see you at an upcoming event!

Zeta love and mine,

Meghan Nelson

Great Kickoff Event!

We "Sipped and Dipped" and learned about amazing vinegars and vinaigrettes at our kickoff event! We caught up with each other and enjoyed creating our own unique mixes. Special thanks to Richard and Sarah Piepenberg (the owners) for allowing us to host our event there. All that attended paid their dues! Kathleen won the gift card drawing! Many thanks to Judy Andrews our Secretary for coordinating this event! If you missed out on our kickoff event, be sure to check out Vinaigrette for their Holiday Shop & Stroll Sale the weekend before Thanksgiving for some great deals!

Coming Soon ... Personalized Letters from Santa fundraiser for ZTAF!

Surprise your child, spouse, family member or friend this Holiday Season with a special delivery from the North Pole! Santa personalizes each letter with the recipient’s name, age (if recipient is a child), gender, hometown, and toy request. Each letter is printed on holiday paper and postmarked North Pole, Alaska, with a Christmas stamp. Santa signs every letter so the recipient will know that he took time to write during his busiest time of the year.

More details to come!

Who are the Twin Cities Alumnae?

Since 1980, our chapter has been dedicated to serving ZTA alumnae of the Twin Cities. We are a group of talented women joined by the common bonds of sisterhood. From recent college graduates and career women to new moms and empty nesters, our membership runs the gamut. Despite the diversity of our group, the bond of ZTA unites us. Whether it’s singing a traditional fraternity song at our Founders’ Day celebration or giggling as we share fun collegiate memories, Zeta remains in our hearts forever. We work hard to embrace the ZTA spirit through events and activities that focus on community service, fundraising and socializing. Whether you look forward to attending every event of the year or only have the time to catch up with us at Zeta Day, there’s a place for you in our alumnae chapter.
