Hardin/Wyandot County Kappa Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma Women’s Educational Society Intl. met Saturday, Sept. 8 at 10 a.m. at the Franciscan Earth Literacy Center in Tiffin.
Sister Shirley Shafranek, educator at the center, used a slide show to speak about environmental education and projects, such as their organic garden and straw house. They also provide environmental education for school tours. The Kappa members were then guided to tour the straw house being built with volunteer help on the Franciscan grounds. A small windmill has been erected to provide energy near the two bedroom/two story home that will have no furnace or air conditioning. The house will be studied for energy saving procedures. Kappa Chapter members are invited to the open house when it is finished.
Co-President Martha Cramer began the meeting. Sec. Teresa Harris read the minutes of the last meeting which was accepted. Treas. Lorrene Roberts sent a financial report which was filed for audit. Charlotte Leeth stated that she had audited the books and they were accurate.
Past State Pres. Donna Myers announced that she attended the DKG International Convention in New York City this summer. She will be serving on the international committee for the Golden Gift. She also stated that everyone is being asked to invite new members to be initiated at Ohio’s 75th State Convention in the spring from April 12-14. This Diamond Anniversary will have some great surprises and a wonderful celebration is planned. She hopes that all 5,200 Ohio members can plan to attend.
Pres. Cramer sadly announced that Marty Everhart has resigned her membership which was accepted with regrets. She also asked for members to consider being the club historian. Ann Frisch, Kappa’s newsletter editor, asked members to sign out program books for absent members if they should see them soon. It was decided that DKG pencils should be given to the classes of Kappa members Liz Snyder and Kathy Lundy. Norma Frederick did not find great interest to schedule a ghost tour of Ohio’s capital building in October. Membership Chairmen Dorothy Blackburn and Norma Frederick ask all members to continue searching for prospective Kappa members.
Donna Myers made a motion to order four new program and ceremony books. She also asked members to contact her committee of Lori Paul, Lynn Knoble, and Suzanne Sawyer within the week to reserve tickets for noon lunch at The Inn and for the ONU Holiday Spectacular on Nov. 17. Kappa members and guests will enjoy a holiday gathering.
Co-Presidents Cramer and Wolfe thanked the committee of Cindy Lupton, Liz Snyder, Kathy Lundy, and Charleen Wolfe for making the arrangements and food for this meeting.
