2014-2015 DKG Program Schedule and Minutes

Delta Kappa Gamma
Meeting Minutes

Thirty-two members of DKG, Nu Chapter, met Tuesday, March 31, 2015, at the Crossview Covenant church in North Mankato.
The meeting was called to order at 5:30 by president Barb Muellerleile.  The minutes of the November 2014 had been sent out via email.
Sue Moore presented the treasurer’s report, which was passed without any changes.
President’s report:
• A slate of candidates for our chapter’s officers will be submitted at our next meeting on April 16, 2015.
• Mankato’s City Center Hotel has been booked for the state DKG convention. The dates of the convention are Friday, April 16 to Sunday, April 18, 2016.
Old business:
• Beth spoke about the upcoming fundraiser on April 12. Topics covered included needing a full table of 8 to have the reserved sign and filling out silent auction forms before coming to the fundraiser to save time.
There will be 12 centerpieces this year and four sponsored floral arrangements for this year’s fundraiser.  People who have centerpieces were reminded to get them to Beth. Non-DKGers who were donating items for our fundraiser were recognized. Beth also talked about the schedule of the program and modeling.
Volunteers are needed to help set up the tables and the silent auction items. Beth will send out emails regarding this.
Beth also stated the First Congregational Church’s council has established new rules for people who hold events at their church. This may impact our use of this church for our fundraiser in the future.
Beth talked about our last two meetings of the year.  Our author meeting with Lorna Langvik is on April 16 at 5:00. She will be sending out emails to ask for help in bringing salads and desserts to that meal meeting. Our last meeting of the year is May 5 at Good Counsel.
North Mankato Community Read events in April were also discussed. Beth will send emails to members concerning them.
There was no new business.
The meeting was adjourned.

Members then heard a wonderful presentation by Grace Keir concerning changes in women’s clothing through the years, and the positive effect bicycles had on those changes. It was informative as well as entertaining. We believe Grace should consider presenting this at next year's state conference in Mankato.
