Memories from school. After stuffing the stove pipe with rags, and getting caught, he was given ½ day out of school.

Love, Superintendent of Lake Junaluska, stressed in his address, Better Understanding For The World
Tidbits of Wisdom Fraternal Education refers to our emotional feelings and attachments Fraternity Education refers to knowledge about our Sorority It is our badge, not pin Alpha Delta Kappa when spoken, not ADK AΔK, not ADK
Suggestions for Fraternity Education when short on time Have Fraternity Education committee give president one or more facts to put on agenda When you call the roll, each person could give a fact, or ask a question. If a question is asked the group can answer. (Newer members will not be put on the spot this way) Give out a short activity as members arrive, and cover answers at the end of meeting Sing both The Lamp of Alpha Delta Kappa, and To North Carolina Alpha Delta Kappa at end of meeting
Encourage everyone to wear their badge. Can charge a quarter if they do not have it on, with the money going to chapter altruistic projects. Can put names of those wearing badge in pot for a prize. Perhaps the prize can be $5 off monies taken for altruistic projects for the winner. Also, the winner can bring the prize next month. (Most of us have a stash of things) Post on the agenda the amount of monies received internationally for scholarships and altruistic projects. This shows how we are part of something bigger than just our chapter, district, or state.
