Presidents' Message:

We met for our annual St. Patrick's Day celebration at the home of our favorite Irishwoman - Lisa Bohan. In honor of Ireland, Merrie Lyn put together a feast of baked potatoes and toppings and we had lots of green treats for dessert. Our speaker this month was our very own Rebecca Caldwell, who spoke to the group about Act for MS, a Coachella Valley-based organization for residents of the valley who suffer from Multiple Sclerosis. Rebecca also took some time to tell all of us about her personal struggles and victories with MS and we were all impressed by how she meets the condition head on. Rebecca will be leading "Team Excelencia" at the Walk for MS on Saturday, April 8 at the Civic Center Park in Palm Desert. All of our members are invited to participate.

You may notice our photo gallery above looks a little different this month. Denise Magee and Gayle Jacobson were the assigned photographers for our March meeting, but they were both having so much fun they forgot to take pictures! So this month you will see a melange of photos from our past meetings this year. Enjoy!

MS Walk 2017

April 8 turned out to be a beautiful morning for a walk and a lot of our members decided to participate in this year's MS Walk.
Gayle and Susie took some great pictures, so please enjoy them.
As a special treat yesterday, our Rebecca Caldwell was recognized as the Volunteer of the Year for the event!
It is so nice to see Rebecca recognized twice this year for all her efforts. We are all so proud of her!

Theta Epsilon prides itself on being recognized as a 5 Star Honor Chapter every year by DKG California. There are six areas where we can accumulate points to come up with the required 24 - 37 points needed to win the 5 Star recognition.  For the next few months we will be going over the different areas where points can be accumulated so each of you can help us reach our goal for 2017-2018:

Area 4.  MEMBERSHIP - Did your Chapter:

  • hold an orientation meeting prior to initiation?
  • maintain or increase membership between April 1 2017 and March 31, 2018?
  • initiate three or more new members between April 1, 2017 and March 31, 2018?
  • transfer or reinstate members into your Chapter?
  • hold a joint Chapter meeting with one or more Chapters?
  • honor a new member or award recipient by sending a letter to the member's principal or school district superintendent, local publication, or chapter newsletter?
  • publicize meetings, new members, and award recipients in a local publication?





Happy Birthday to all our members
