Our meeting for the Beta Delta Chapter, of Delta Kappa Gamma, was held on October 16, 2018, at the Neal Avenue United Methodist Church.
Co-President, Sandy Stoker, called the meeting to order. Recording Secretary, Debbie Weber, read the minutes from our last meeting. Debbie Jones gave the Treasurer's Report. We have $4,811.52 in our checking account; $5,288.54 in our two C.D.'s; and we collected $25 for the Baby Pantry tonight. There is still time to get your ticket for our Scholarship Auction. Please contact Debbie, and she can also hold your ticket for you to pick up on the night of our auction.
Sharon Wheeler read the Collect before our meal. The members of the church provided a wonderful baked steak dinner with dessert. A huge thank-you goes out to all the members who cooked and waited on us that night!
Our presentation tonight was “Newark Here and Now”. Connie Rutter and Sandy Gartner were the presenters. They have recently published a book called “Newark Through Time”. They shared wonderful stories of how Newark looked many years ago. They also shared photos and notebooks full of pictures of Newark.
Our next part of our program was the Initiation Program. We welcomed our newest member, Becky Bringardner. We are so happy to have Becky in our organization!
