Twin Cities Alumnae Bi-Monthly Mini - January 2014
A new year is upon us so I hope you’ll consider joining your Delta Zeta sisters at an upcoming outing – whether it is volunteering with Second Harvest Heartland, enjoying an evening with your Panhellenic sisters at the Badge Day Social, or attending the delightful Spring Luncheon – we would love to see you.
On behalf of our chapter, I also want to express my appreciation to the sisters who paid their annual membership dues. Your continued support funds our national and Twin Cities Alumnae Panhellenic dues, assists with programming, supports the Gamma Scholarship, and so much more.
The slate of officers for 2014 – 2016 is presented in this issue of the newsletter. I wish to thank our sisters who have volunteered to serve as an officer for our chapter. The installation of officers will be held at the Spring Luncheon in March.
It’s not too early to mark your calendar for Region Day which is planned for Saturday, April 26. Details are forthcoming so stay tuned to the March edition of the newsletter!
May this be the happy beginning of a wonderful year for you!
In the flame,
Barb Jones Brotherton
Thank you to all our members for supporting our Delta Zeta alumnae chapter!

Enjoying the event
Philanthropy Event - Thursday, February 20, 6-8 p.m.
Join us in our first philanthropy event of the year at Second Harvest Heartland in Golden Valley to help provide hunger relief for our community. On Thursday, February 20 from 6-8 pm we will be helping to sort, label and re-package bulk food (cereals and pasta for example) that has been donated for those in need. These items will then be donated to food shelves and soup kitchens. Please arrive at 5:45 pm wearing comfortable clothes and closed-toed shoes. You will be asked to remove all jewelry except for wedding bands, so it might be best to leave the bling at home. Please RSVP to the Evite you have been emailed as we must reserve the amount of spots we need in advance. Thank you for volunteering with us, we look forward to another fun event! Any questions can be directed to Katie Whitehead at email@example.com.
