June 30 marked the end of some of our chapter officers' terms of office. I want to thank Candy, Linda, and Catherine who have passed the gavel (so to speak because they couldn't do that physically) to Camy, Denise, Faith, and Diane. I hope you will stay involved in Delta Kappa Gamma and provide assistance to our new officers. A big thanks for all you have done and I look forward to working with you in the future. I love being part of the DKG-Iota team.
