Dear Mu State Sisters:
Thank you for your work and dedication to make our Fall Workshop a success! It was wonderful!
As we continue to develop our theme of “Planting, Watering and Growing our Chapters” we are expanding areas of expertise and sharing knowledge and skills with each other. All is important. So exciting to watch the registration as it just got better and better. We ended up with 285 registrations because of your belief in and dedication to Mu State, DKG. You value the purposes and each other. Thank you! As I watched you all walking through the hallways and attending the workshops it was so gratifying to see your friendship, dedication and talents shared with each other. We had 65 First Timers----congratulations and a strong welcome!!!!!! This was fantastic!!!
Some of the things we are accomplishing are making a difference for us personally and for Mu State. These include:
1. Increasing awareness of the purposes of Delta Kappa Gamma.
2. Involving members by using and expanding their areas of expertise, knowledge and skills.
3. Searching for and adding valued and outstanding candidates.
4. Focusing ways to strengthen our Society.
5. Valuing participation at State, Regional and International levels.
6. Developing new ideas that will enable us to achieve new goals, expanding our focus in new ways that will strengthen our society and lead us forward into a successful future .
7. Believing in ourselves, caring for others, and acknowledging and using our abilities--let others know your talents and areas of expertise.
I’d like to share some “sayings” I found recently that remind me of you:
"You are the one who can stretch your own horizon..."
"Acknowledging a mistake just means that you are wiser today than your were yesterday"
"Light tomorrow with today"
"Follow what you love and it will take you where you want to go"
"Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love. A gift to that person, is a beautiful thing
"There is no greater joy nor greater reward than to make a fundamental difference in someone's life....
"DON'T BE AFRAID TO BE AMAZING"
YOU ALL ARE THE BEST--Looking forward to seeing you in April at the Convention
LOVE AND BLESSINGS,
