A Letter from Your Chapter President

Hello Thetas,

Nationwide, Kappa Alpha Theta and CASA are celebrating a 25 year partnership. Concurrently, Dallas CASA will honor the Dallas Alumnae Chapter at the Cherish the Children Luncheon on May 7th.  All Thetas are invited and encouraged to attend. I have a handful of complimentary tickets if interested.

No more excuses. Painting with a Twist fees have been reduced! Find your inner Picasso and join me to create our own priceless masterpiece on April 29.

Please lend a hand. Committee volunteers are needed for Heart to Heart 2015. I never reveal a secret, but I can assure you this is a great year to participate! Save the date details below.

Finally, this will be my last entry as the Dallas Alumnae Chapter President. There are simply not enough words to express my gratitude and love for your steadfast, loyal support. My board of directors has far exceeded my expectations and they have charted an exciting future path. 

As I write this, Francie and the new board are transitioning positions and confirming plans for next year. The Dallas Alumnae Chapter is moving forward by leaps and bounds and I remain as proud as ever of our accomplishments now and certainly yet to come.

Theta Love and Mine,
