First In-Person Meeting!
Our Executive Board was SO EXCITED to be able to meet in person finally! One of the members attending has been unable to participate in the virtual meetings, so this was extra-special. We were able to have a small lunch gathering to plan out our chapter's meetings and social events for the upcoming year!
State Convention Basket
Our State chapter, DKG Indiana, invited all of the chapters to bring a basket for a silent auction in June to the State Convention. The purpose was to raise money for the DKG Emergency Fund. The event was definitely a success! Our chapter chose to include only local products, such as Donut Bank coffee, Dewig Meats jerky, books by local authors, artwork by a local artist, jams from a local farm market, Lib's chocolates, Marx BBQ sauce, and MORE! You can see a list of the contents HERE ! This was a fun way to support our local shops and artists in addition to DKG. A special thanks to chapter member Darlene for assembling and delivering the basket for us!
Our Chapter is helping support the YWCA with both monetary and supply donations. Here are a few of the ways our members have helped:
Chinese Cooking Class
Member Mei shows our chapter how to make some traditional Chinese dishes at home.
Self - Defense Workshop
The group is warming up and having a talk with local officers before our "Wonder Woman 2.0" self-defense workshop at SICTC.
Member Gwen gives the chapter a tour of the newly opened Southern Indiana Career and Technical Center (SICTC), an EVSC school that includes students from 5 area counties.
The chapter had a meeting with dinner and a mixology lesson at Comfort by Cross Eyed Cricket.
Golden Key Award
Angie and Darlene accept the Golden Key Award certificate for our Chapter at the Alpha Epsilon State Convention in 2017.
Women's Suffrage Presentation PLUS the Benefits of Wine and Herbs Wine Tasting
We had a meeting at Darlene's house, where she presented information about the health benefits of wine. Multiple wines were also available for tasting, as well as information about basic wine tasting etiquette. During the meal, Lorie presented information about the women's suffrage movement.
Members met at Comfort by the Cross Eyed Cricket before a planned tour of the LST.
