Recruitment Workshop

Dear Alum,

I’d like to invite you to participate in our Pre-Recruitment weekend this year, in preparation for Formal Recruitment. I’m hoping you can help us practice some conversational skills while both collegiates and alumnae get the chance to get to know each other better. In addition, do you think you would be willing to provide lunch/snacks for all of us to share?

For Formal Recruitment, we are allowed to receive an alumnae donation of three dozen flowers for Preference. I’ll confirm with Alexsis (Decorations Chair) which flowers she prefers and let you know ASAP.

Thanks in advance! And please pass this on to your fellow Alumnae and Tri Psi members.

DLAM,
Asha,
Alumni Chair,
Canada Alpha

Note: The Alumnae Chapter won’t provide snacks, but individual alum or Tri Psi members may bring them, if they wish.

Fall Back into DDD

Please join us for our annual recruitment event along with DDDines. Feel free to stop by say hi, join us for appetizers and drinks – and connect with a sister you haven’t seen in a while. We hope to connect with you and help you Fall Back into DDD. Don’t forget to bring your donation for POGO. Scroll down for details.

Plum Blossom from the Bitter Cold

Exciting news from one of our Tri Delta sisters! The TD Gallery at the Toronto Reference Library has a new exhibit entitled, “Plum Blossom from the Bitter Cold,” and it includes photos of Tri Delta Arlene Chan and her late mother Tri Psi Jean Lumb.

Arlene wrote in 2018:

“When Toronto Public Library announced in late 2016 that it was to establish the Chinese Canadian Archive to capture and record the rich heritage of the Chinese community, I was ecstatic. . . The connections to our past are fast fading with the loss of our elders, precious memories and personal memorabilia.”

Go! See! There’s a reading list and drop-in guided tours. Plum Blossom from the Bitter Cold runs until October 27th.
