Career Night

Hello ladies!

Career night is fast approaching and I just wanted to let you know that thee collegians have extended an invitation to the alumnae to stay for thier sisterhood event planned for 9pm once the Carrer Night portion of the evening has been completed. There will be some new members in attendance and they are excited to show them the life long membership side of Tri Delta. This is an excellent oppourtunity for us to share something special with the collegians, get to know them a little better, and re-live our amazing days of firesides and sisterhood programming. I’m really looking forward to this!

See you at the chapter house at 7pm!
