Delta Dear Tea 2021

The Knoxville Alumnae Chapter honored our “Dedicated – Energetic – Active – Respected – Sorors” better known as Delta DEARS this weekend. DEARS are members of Delta Sigma Theta’s sisterhood who have been blessed to reach the golden age of 62 years. The KAC Delta DEAR Tea was filled with sweet moments, surprise gifts and lunch on us! It might have been virtual but you could feel the love in the “room.” Oh, to be a Delta!

Our fabulous Membership Services committee coordinated contactless drive thru pickup of Delta DEAR gifts. Divas and Dolls picked up the bags and delivered them to the doorstep of their DEARS.

The smiles on the KAC Delta DEARS were priceless when they FINALLY could see what was in their bag during the virtual tea!

Special Moments

Sisterhood can’t be stopped. Avis Andrews-Gary is visiting family but brought her red so she could celebrate with her DEAR sisters!

Christina Goode is new to the Delta DEAR circle and got to celebrate with her newly initiated legacy, Christiana.

Veronica Smith enjoyed her first KAC DEAR Tea. She’s new to Knoxville Alumnae after moving to Knoxville from Miami Alumnae Chapter.

Long-time KAC member, Eddie Mae Robinson, who will be turning 100 this summer, joined her Delta DEAR sisters on the phone from Maryland!

Thank you Membership Services for honoring our Delta DEARS!
