with refreshments at 4:30 p.m.

Our first meeting of the year will be on Monday September 18, 2017. We will gather at the Orozco

experience. The hostesses will be your Executive Board. There will be a special program on the

Summer Fun Zeta Omega Style

Several of our members retired this year. Among them are Colleen Terrell, Marion Grant, and Dana Tarter.
Congratulations to these lucky ladies! Diane Moose and her husband enjoyed an Alaskan cruise with their
family in celebration of their fiftieth wedding anniversary. It was not actually fun, but Bobbie Harris spent the
night at Friendswood High School as a Harvey evacuee. Diane and DiAnn Fernandez attended and served at
the TSO annual convention where our chapter was recognized in a variety of ways.

Photos from left to right: Diane and Bill on their anniversary cruise; Dana and friend at
the Senior Games where they played volleyball; Fannie Watson, Delta Gamma Area 1, (longtime friend of
Diane) collected our $2000.00 ASTEF grant for us; DiAnn and Diane at the TSO Convention; Colleen at her
retirement party.

From the Lone Star News and TSO Website

The role of TSO Registrar is open. We are looking for someone dedicated to DKG and TSO with a passion
for people, detail-oriented and comfortable with technology. If you are interested in this job, full information is
available on the Home page of dkgtexas.org.

Also on the Home page of dkgtexas.org is information concerning the TSO Hurricane Harvey Action Plan.

The DKG Educational Foundation offers project grants for educators. A chapter can only receive ASTEF
grants two years in a row for the same project; so, we might consider applying for an DKGEF grant for next
year. What do you think? DKGEF Project Grant

One More Thing

On November 13 we will be having our annual Birthday Celebration and Member Initiation. This means

and our chapter in particular. So, if you know of an educator (female, of course) who is doing an great job
please fill in a Prospect Card (or, several) and bring to our meeting. If for some reason you are not able to
attend the meeting, send your Prospect information to Marion or to Diane. The Prospect does not need to be
a personal friend. In fact, it is not necessary that you actually know the Prospect except by excellent

The Prospect cards are also available on the Forms page of our chapter website.
