The North Carolina Beta Tau Chapter of Alpha Delta Kappa celebrated its 40th anniversary on Aug. 15.
Sorority sisters gathered in Pinehurst at the home of Kay Mack, Beta Tau's current president. The Beta Tau Chapter was organized by Beta Zeta and was chartered on July 10, 1971, with 17 charter members. The two remaining charter members, Bebe Briggs and Kitty Kuzminski, were recognized along with Silver Sisters (Jennifer Jenkins, Jane McInnis, Beverly Offutt and Ann McNeill) and Sapphire Sisters (Carol Elam, Ruth Frye and Joyce McInnis).
Past presidents were also acknowledged, and scrapbooks from past years were on display, rekindling fond memories. Time was taken to remember those sisters who have passed away this year and joined the Omega Chapter.
"Betty Frye and Sadie Maurer will be missed, but their contributions will never be forgotten," says a spokesman.
A new sister, Linda Hemingway, was initiated and joined Beta Tau with sisterhood and service as its focus.
-" Beta Tau looks forward to another year as it continues to grow and excel in promoting high standards of education and fraternal fellowship, in sponsoring scholarships and in pursuing altruistic projects and activities," says the spokesman.
