Grace Keir has graciously been serving the role of the chapterís historian and reported the status of the chapterís memorabilia. After Loretta (previous historian) passed, all of the DKG memorabilia previously housed with Loretta, was brought to Grace. Completed scrapbooks were sent to the DKG collection at the MSU Library. However, several (as in boxes) loose photos remain. What to do with them? A suggestion was made to bring them to our December meeting and go through them to hopefully identify some of the people pictured. Beyond that, to be determined. . .
