Convention Rewind Keeps You Guessing

As DGs throughout North America prepare for Delta Gamma's 65th Biennial Convention (in Indianapolis later this month), let's rewind and reflect on some of our past conventions.


The official tote in Atlanta.
Last week we asked, "Where were the DGs when they were celebrating '125 years of excellence?' " They were Anchored in Atlanta from June 17-21, 1998, for Delta Gamma's 58th Biennial Convention. Cabinet member Lynn Hoffland Johsz, Gamma Chi-Cal State, Long Beach, correctly identified the mystery locale. (Look for a small prize in the mail, Lynn; let that be a hint to others.)

More than 1,000 Delta Gammas attended the 1998 gathering, making it the largest convention to date. Held at Atlanta Marriott Marquis, the opening ceremonies honored former Fraternity Presidents. Important awards were bestowed including the Order of Golden Anchor which was given to H.K. (Helen Catherine) Davis Stuart, Kappa- Nebraska. The Delta Gamma Foundation gave two faculty awards and Patricia Peterson Danielson, Theta-Indiana, was honored at a Foundation reception for her extraordinary philanthropic fundraising efforts.  

This week, we think we'll stump you. Look at the picture below. Where were these ladies convening in their cars? And what year was it?

Where were these Delta Gammas?

Check back here next week and we will tell you where this convention was located. Email us your feedback at blog@deltagamma.org or leave a comment here.
