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.
As Fall 2019 approaches, we’re gearing up for Fall Recruitment. Alumnae will combine our monthly DDDines with preparing for recruitment, and Canada Alpha has invited alum to their Recruitment Workshop. See the Events page for details!

I don’t think anyone is ever satisfied with their salary – but do you know how to get it increased? Learn how by attending the Smart Salary Negotiation Workshop on June 1st.
You are invited to attend our AAUW Work Smart Salary Negotiation Workshop on Saturday June 1st. We are so lucky to be one of twelve chosen alumni chapters, out of 250 chapters, to be given the opportunity to host this incredible workshop. AAUW Work Smart program is designed to help women negotiate for a new job, raise or promotion. Together we will work together to minimize the pay gap and use the tools Tri Delta gave us to empower and elevate one another. The mission of AAUW is to advance equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy and research. The AAUW Work Smart Program is leading the charge by offering a comprehensive salary negotiation workshop for working women, regardless of age or career level.

Tri Delta is boldly leading the way by addressing important issues such as gender equity and barriers women face in the workplace.

The Brain Injury Society of Toronto holds an annual Expressive Art Show every Spring. This year it’s at Artscape Youngplace at 180 Shaw St. And I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be there with my book Concussion Is Brain Injury: Treating the Neurons and Me!
The BIST Expressive Art Show launches on Tuesday, May 21, 4:00 to 7:00 pm with paintings, illustrations, crafts, sculptures, and copies of my book available for sale at a deep discount ($20) and for personal autographing. I’ll also be doing a brief reading at 5:00 pm.
“the intricate details of the author’s experience are riveting and enlightening.” Kirkus Reviews
“Jeejeebhoy’s tale is highly emotional…uplifting, while giving a realistic view of recovery.” Self-Publishing Review
This year, I will also have one of my artworks — a photographic collage — on display.
I’ve always been impressed with the evocativeness and beauty of many of the art pieces. I hope you will check out the show and the many artists there! I’d be thrilled to see you, sister Tri Deltas, your friends, family, and neighbours, too!
