Dear Sisters in DKG,
Summer is ending, I am well on the road to recovery, and it is time for
us to start another year of fabulous programs, conversations, and
quality time with our sisters. So off we go….September 10, 2019 at the
FUMC with 4:30 social time, 5:00 meeting, 5:30 dinner (salads, bread,
dessert provided by the Executive Board), 6:00 program!
1. Teri has a super year of programs planned around the “I Wonder…
theme. Check out her spotlight below.
2. Mardine has some new ideas to share for our teacher resupply project
but we need to bring our supplies such as crayons, sticky notes, white
board markers, composition books, colored pencils, markers, etc. this
3. Maria has our dues sent in, membership roster up to date & only has
to collect dinner money, still $10.00.
4. Our state president’s project is all about literacy which we already
support with our birthday money for the Literacy Council, teacher
resupply, etc. Susan Fritts will be giving us more ideas as the year
5. Don’t forget to bring your quarters for the Owl (birthday money)!
6. Kaye Ryan is unable to help in the kitchen this year, but is still
decorating our tables for us. When you sign up for dinner prep or clean
up, I will be coordinating until we find someone willing to take on that
Here’s to another great year with DKG!!!

While sitting here writing this membership chat, I am
thinking of our teachers in the classroom inspiring students on this
first day of school. Lots of emotions and we know the students are
arriving with their back- packs full of supplies. Yes, we will replenish
these supplies at mid-point in the year so bring what you have collected
to our first meeting. Stay tuned on what we have in mind for
Request is still out for those attending Sept. 10 to bring a friend or
let me know of someone special you think would enjoy our first purpose
under the Mission Statement in the yearbook: “To unite women educators
of the world in a genuine spiritual fellowship.”
During the month of August, we lost two contributors of our community
connected to members. Rich Cox, husband of Marnie, was a doctor of
pathology at Confluence Health. Charles Hutchins, brother of Grace Lynch
and founder of Christopher House, which is still operating for those
needing service. Both men will be greatly missed and we ask you to show
caring and support for Marnie and Grace.
I WONDER what our 2019-20 theme will be, how our valley is
changing, where we will be, who will be our speakers,
why these things are important to us, if we will be doing
crafts, and when it all begins?
I can tell you that the programs for 2019-2019 will revolve around the
theme I WONDER. We will see slide shows, listen to experts in
their field, learn about pertinent and local subjects, will be including
crafts, will meet in our room downstairs at the First United Methodist
Church and it all begins September 10 at 4:30 with a social time,
meeting at 5:00.
The I WONDER for our first meeting will feature Brett Reasor, CEO
of Oneonta/Starr Ranch fruit growers and shippers. He will answer the
question of I WONDER how fruit gets from the orchard to the
packing shed to the public? How new machinery helps speed up the process
and how growers techniques are changing….or not?
See you then.
P.S. Brett is the son of one of our members, Cathy Reasor.
