Dear Toronto Alumnae,
I have some exciting news to share with you! Psi Psi Psi, the sorority for Tri Delta mothers, is hosting its 93rd International Convention at the Millennium Buffalo Hotel from October 13-16, 2016!
You are cordially invited to attend all or part of the Convention. Of particular interest to Tri Deltas are the banquet and the Violet Brunch. The banquet is open to all Tri Psis, Tri Deltas, spouses, family and guests. Our Fraternity’s former NPC delegate Kathy Massie will be the keynote speaker and the cost is $43 US per person. The Violet Brunch for Tri Psis and Tri Deltas is $20 US per person. This is an excellent opportunity for a Buffalo shopping road trip! The hotel shares a parking lot with the Walden Galleria Mall (Macy’s) and is only a short drive from the Fashion Outlets of Niagara Falls. Rooms for up to four guests are available for $119 US per night.
Also, the Tri Psis will be conducting initiation at the Convention. Tri Delta daughters serve as sponsors for their mothers at this Ritual written by Sarah Ida Shaw Martin. Initiation is open to mothers, stepmothers and foster mothers of DDDs of all ages, not just collegians. Whether your mom attended college, joined Tri Delta, joined a different NPC group or didn’t pledge a sorority at all, Tri Psi sisterhood is open to her. It’s a wonderful way to honor your mom and to share with her the bonds that Tri Psis and Tri Deltas hold dear. The initiation fee is $40 CDN.
Please feel free to share this invitation with your Tri Delta friends. I expect we’ll get a good number of DDDs from New York and Ontario, so co-chair Christine Calhoun has graciously offered a hospitality suite for Tri Delta attendees to gather for an informal meet and greet. I hope to see many of you there! Kindly let me know if you have any questions. I’d be happy to direct you to the appropriate party.
