Delta Zeta - Iowa

Alumnae Update

Greetings Delta Zetas!

This newsletter is a new effort being put forth to help connect and keep alumnae in touch with what is happening in Iowa. We will be sending this out a few times a year to share news from our alumnae groups, keep you informed with collegiate chapter news, and announce any volunteer openings.

Celebrate Delta Zeta Sisterhood with a Tribute to Your Special Sister!

The Rose Garden was in full bloom from October 1 through October 31 to "Celebrate Sisterhood" and the Sorority's Founders Day on October 24. Members honored the special bonds of the Delta Zeta sisterhood with tribute gifts totaling $8,355 to the Delta Zeta Foundation.

These gifts to the Delta Zeta Foundation help provide an enriching experience for all Delta Zetas - an experience that has a positive, lasting impact on the women we become, the work we do, and the way we are inspired to lead, serve and give.

The Delta Zeta Rose Garden will open again in Spring 2014 to celebrate our sisterhood and the Sorority's 51st National Convention in Tucson, Arizona. To honor a sister with a gift to the Delta Zeta Foundation at any time, use this online form and complete the "Tribute Gift" section. The Foundation will send a personalized note card letting your honoree know of your thoughtfulness.
