Alpha Delta Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma Society met March 6 By Joan Weathers Communications Chairman Alpha Delta Chapter, DKG The Alpha Delta Chapter of Alpha Epsilon State, Del- ta Kappa Gamma Society In- ternational met in Washing- ton on Tuesday, March 6. Hostesses Mary Fran Ben- nett, Debbie Rayman and Nancy Grannan, with a com- mittee of Washington teach- ers and retirees, chose a St. Patrick's Day theme for the evening. Alpha Delta Chap- ter represents members from Daviess, Dubois and Pike counties. Preceding the meeting, Janet Eaton and Maria Kil- lion presided over an initi- ation ceremony for Stepha- nie O'Brian. Stephanie was sponsored by Laura Craney. Mary Fran Bennett and Pam Cardinal read an Irish blessing before the delicious meal prepared by the Mc- Clure family. Rhonda York entertained members by the beautiful a cappella singing of "How Can I Keep from Singing." The song was an old Shak- er hymn. The Shakers sent food to the Irish during the great famine, and the song has become well known as sung by Irish singer Enya. President Ruthanne Bur- khart conducted the meet- ing. The Barr-Reeve nomi- nating committee presented a slate of officers for 2018 - 2020, and it passed unani- mously. The installation of the officers will be at the May meeting.

A White Rose Ceremony was conducted for JoAnn Nonte and Rose Rink. Ne- crology for Joann Nonte was given by Joan Weath- ers. JoAnn was a remark- able woman who left be- hind a legacy of love for her friends, colleagues, stu- dents, animals, and her fam- ily, especially her grandchil- dren. JoAnn's grace was ev- idenced by her calmness in all situations and compas- sion for others. Necrolo- gy for Rose Rink was given by Janet Eaton. Rose had a great impact on Janet's life as a student, fellow teach- er and church member. Ja- net also read a letter writ- ten by Janet Fisher telling of the blessings and inter- esting experiences she and Rose had shared.
