The Arlington Alumnae Association was formed in 1966 and has brought together many fine sisters from across the country to the DFW area.
We welcome all sisters in the DFW area to join us for any of our events this coming year. We generally have one “business” meeting a year and it is our first meeting, which is also our planning meeting for the coming year.
If you have any questions, please contact us at arlingtonaxid @ gmail (dot) com We look forward to hearing from you!
This message comes to you very late in the fall semester and I sincerely apologize for not being more timely in fulfilling my duties as President. This school year is off to a very rocky start for me because of my best friend’s diagnosis, surgery and subsequent treatment for breast cancer. We never know how much we rely on others until one of the “others” must face something unexpected. However, I know we have other sisters who are ill, some who are mourning the loss of family members and those who are trying to make ends meet with limited resources–in short, amaXIng women who are doing their best to live their lives and be good role models for those who are watching. Thankfully, Leslie and Audora have tried to keep me on track with encouraging messages and offers of help. I am reminded daily that this is one of the reasons we joined AXiD as collegiate members—to know that there would always be someone to gladly walk beside us through the dark times, as well as the good times.
Several members completed the survey requesting feedback on the direction that you wanted our alumnae group to take for the next several years. Sadly, we have not had the opportunity to meet and consider those suggestions, but here are a few ideas for activities that provide an opportunity to spend time with each other. If anyone else wants to coordinate another event, please let one of us know.
–Holiday Party with Zeta Lambda (December 4 – more details coming soon)
—Museum Visit (The Kimbell in Fort Worth has a Monet Exhibit through January, but there are many others we could patronize in February or March.)
–Founders’ Day (Saturday, April 22—location details still to be finalized)
If you have not paid your dues, you can do that on the website using PayPal or can mail a check to Audora Milani (P. O. Box 172318, Arlington, TX 76003). Dues are $35 per year, with $20 going to Fraternity Headquarters and a portion of the rest going to the local Panhellenic Association.
I look forward to seeing you soon.
