I would like to welcome our new initiates to Iota Chapter: Dr.Jacqueline Brady Christine Gentile Krystal Kuni Meghan McCormick Shannon Pizzuta
What a wonderful initiates tea we had on January 27th! It was great spending time with our sisters and catching up on personal, society, and educational news.
After hearing the biographies of these five women, I know that Iota will continue to grow professionally and contribute to our many charities.
To those who were unable to attend, I hope you are well and able join us at our May meeting. Looking forward to the combined Chapter Meeting on March 2nd at the Porch Club in Riverton. Please see the home page for details. In addition, please consider joining me at DKG NJ Convention in April.
In closing, the ground hog saw his shadow, so here's hoping that he is right...this time!
