Founders Day 2010

On Sunday Mu Chapter celebrated its 101st Founders Day. Founders Day is among the most honored of Delta Gamma's ritual traditions. It provides a special occasion when alumnae and collegians meet to remember the three Delta Gamma Founders and to rededicate themselves to the ideals of the Fraternity. It is also a great chance for Mu to share the events of the past year with alumni.

This year the event was planned by Sara Harris (09). The program opened with a performance of the Delta Gamma choir. After brunch President Amanda Klohmann (07) and past President Abby Warren (07) gave the State of the Chapter address and alum Danielle Hohmeier (05) did the role call of all the alumni in attendance. VP of Foundation Kathryn Bergmann (08) updated the chapter on service and philanthropy events and Director of Lectureship Breanna Hance (08) gave a preview into plans for next year's event. Afterwards Sara Harris presented the collegiate chapter awards (included below). The entire event was fantastic and visiting with alumni was an honor for current chapter members.
