Mu Founder's Day 2012

Sunday, March 11th, the women of Mu chapter held their annual Founder's Day celebration at the Courtyard by Marriott. The banquet room was full of collegians and alumni from Mizzou and several other chapters, including two Ole Miss new members!

After discussing our chapter, philanthropy efforts, and honoring outstanding members, the audience was able to hear the story of US Representative and DG sister, Jo Ann Emerson speak about her college career at Ohio-Wesleyan and her professional career in the political field. We were so happy to have her join our celebration.

Founder's Day is a special time for DGs everywhere to reflect on why Delta Gamma was so important to Mary, Eva, and Anna, and important to members today.

Recipients of the Whole Hearted award included, from left, Lauren Crutchfield (NMC '09), Stephanie Faerber (NMC '08), Carson Love (NMC '10), and Courtney Bromley (NMC '11).

A special thanks to Stacey Sheridan, Director of Alumnae Relations, who planned the event with the help of advisor Debbie Bertram Link.

The Great Fight for Sight: DG and TOMS

Delta Gamma Fraternity has partnered with TOMS in The Great Fight for Sight, and Mu Chapter is leading the way! For every pair of women's or men's eyewear purchased through a DG Chapter, TOMS donates prescription glasses, sight-saving surgery or other medical treatment to a person in need: One for One.
Blindness and visual impairments is the 7th largest health disability in the world, and 18 million are children who can be helped, especially if action is taken at an early age. Everyone needs another pair of sunglasses, right? Or give a great gift for a great purpose!

Go to, and please include DGUniversityofMissouri as the promo code.
Thank you for your consideration. Delta Gamma strives to live up to its motto to "Do Good", your support will make you "Feel Good" as well.

Delta Gamma Pinafore 2012

On February 25th, Mu chapter's favorite social event took place. Pinafore is our annual party where we, along with our dates, wear matching shirts and go bowling at the local alley.

Another fun aspect of this party is that each lady decorates a sailor hat for her date to wear. There is always a wide variety of themes for these hats: from video games, to sports teams, to foods.

The event was a huge success. A big thank you to Alle Pawelski (NMC '10) for organizing the event as Director of Special Events, and Claire Darnell (NMC '10) for creating our fun, retro baseball tees as Director of Sportswear!

Pinafore is a weekend we look forward to each year, and many ladies have already begun their countdown for next year's event.

Members of NMC '09, along with Katie Moore via FaceTime, sport their dates' hats.

Kaeli Kimes and Courtney Alexander (NMC '08) took fellow Golden Girls as their dates to their senior Pinafore.
