President’s Message…

Just like the rest of the valley, winter is a busy time for our DKG chapter. Once again we met at Karen Dorn's wonderfully eclectic home in February to have a double meeting - creating our Jared Boxes and being introduced to the books we are donating to our area libraries.  We passed last year's record setting total and sent 104 Jared boxes to Loma Linda Children's Hospital this year!  Once again, we also sent a variety of books to our libraries, including a bilingual one and Hidden Figures, which the current hit movie is based on.

Roxanne also gave us a report at the February meeting about what a great success January's Texas Hold 'Em fundraiser was. It will allow us to keep offering our annual scholarships to high school seniors.

Finally, a majority of our chapter was able to attend the Founders Day 2017 celebration at the Desert Willow Golf Clubhouse in February. We had good company, good food, good entertainment and still managed to be done by lunchtime. That's what we like!

We hope to see you all at Lisa Bohan's for our annual St. Patrick's Day celebration. Don't forget to register below!
