What a wonderful day! I visited with 4 chapters from the southeastern part of our state, and felt the passion of DKG burning strong. These women taught me so much about being Empowered Women. I was humbled by their personal stories, excited by their chapter work, and grateful to have spent time with them. Thank you to Elaine Hutchinson for being my hostess, and to Grace Schauer for being my travel companion. The photo shows just a few of these incredible women. L-R Claire Sapanaro and Elaine Hutchinson of Beta Mu, Heather Lilienthal of Beta Pi, Amy Buddock of Beta Omicron, Rosemary Krygowski of Beta Alpha, and myself receiving a lovely stained glass rose created by Claire. I will say it again - What a wonderful day! — with Amy Clark Buddock.
