The honor of serving my chapter in many offices and thereby developing leadership skills.
The humbling honor of being Delta State president
The fellowship of many DKG members at all levels
Attendance at enlightening and beneficial state conventions, regional conferences, and International conventions
Learning from fascinating keynote speakers at state and international functions
Being encouraged and inspired by the many dynamic, creative, and energetic members of Delta State
While I stop there, the list could be much longer. DKG offers so much to women educators. I am grateful for my dear friend who introduced me to DKG. She opened a world of experiences that continues today.
Why don’t you take just a few minutes and reflect on your personal answers about what you would have missed if you had not become a DKG member? I imagine your list would be as long or longer than mine.
Now, think about your colleagues. What are they missing because you have not nominated them? Delta Kappa Gamma has so much to share with women educators. Think about the difference you could make for that young teacher who has taught less than five years. The support, friendship, and scholarships offered by our organization could make a great difference in her life.
Perhaps you are thinking that you do not know any active educator. Take a look at the New Member Recruitment Plan at www.dkg.org. It is located under Committees and then Membership. Here you will find a strategy that allows you to introduce DKG to educators whom you have heard about, perhaps from an article in a newspaper, a presentation at an inservice, or even a grandchild’s teacher. It’s an exciting method to honor educators and build our chapters with creative, energetic educators just as we have always had.
Now what if . . . we share our fellowship, friendship, and support with someone else by asking them to join DKG. The results could be amazing and enriching to both our chapters and Delta State.
This pie is quite good and simple to make. I like it served with whipped topping since it is very sweet.
1 unbaked 8 inch pie shell
1 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons flour
Dash of salt
1 12 ounce can evaporated milk
2 1/2 tablespoons butter
Put sugar, flour, and salt in the pie shell. Mix with fingers. Pour milk over sugar mixture. Do not stir or mix. Dot with the butter. Sprinkle cinnamon generously over top.
Bake at 350 degree over for 50 minutes. The filling never completely sets. May be served with whipped topping.
