This Founders Day, sisters are invited to join us for a virtual Founders Day program. We'll be joined by Delta Gamma Archivist Diane Hall, Eta Upsilon-Drexel, who will take us into the Delta Gamma vault and show us some of DG's most coveted "crown jewels." She will teach us the history, meaning, and significance of some of our oldest and most precious badges and jewelry. In addition to Diane's presentation, we'll celebrate our Founders with a candlelighting ceremony. You won't want to miss this, so register today
