A Double Celebration...

 Today I drove to Williamsburg and Newport News for a double celebration. In the afternoon,  I joined the Williamsburg Alumnae Theta Chapter at their Annual Founder’s Day Celebration. We had wonderful alumnae and collegians there who span one year to over fifty years of membership in Kappa Alpha Theta. I am celebrating my 13th year of membership. Founder’s Day is technically January 27 - we were founded on that day in 1870. Chapters around the world celebrate our Founder’s by gathering and remembering what these four brave women accomplished in a male dominated society. I am very proud to be a member of the first Fraternity known among women.

After this, I drove to my parents house in Newport News to spend the night. While I was there, we celebrated their 33rd wedding anniversary. Their anniversary is actually Valentine’s Day - but since I was in town we celebrated. We had a nice dinner at Carraba’s and then picked up some dessert at the Fresh Market (similar to a Whole Foods). Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad!
