Are the Holidays Here Already?

Welcome to November! We can now celebrate with discounted Halloween candy and Christmas decorations! October was a jam-packed month, and we continue into November with some new events! We hope you will consider joining us at the Raleigh Food Bank at the beginning of November as we DO GOOD for hundreds of needy families in the Triangle! We are THANKFUL for all of you that attend our events, support our association by paying your alumnae dues, and keep the spirit of our founders Anna, Eva, and Mary alive in your hearts. We hope to see you at some of our November events!

DELTA GAMMA FUN FAQ

DID YOU KNOW......

Eva Webb Dodd & Anna Boyd Ellington were in fact, cousins.


Soon after the first initiation on January 2, 1874, plans were made for the first pin. A few years before she died, Mary Comfort Leonard described the first pin: "We went to a local jeweler and had our pin made-the letter "H" which stood for hope, for which we hoped for great results and have not been disappointed."


It was't until 1877 the letter H was replaced by anchor, which is the symbol for hope.
