Ohio University welcomes back to Athens the Tau Alpha Chapter of Chi Omega alumnae on April 26-27 for the sorority’s 100th anniversary. Over 200 alumnae from 23 states and the District of Columbia will be attending the centennial celebration. They will join OHIO’s active chapter of 132 members to honor its history, achievements and sisterhood.
“Some of the members who will be attending were initiated in 1948 and 1949,” said event chair Kathy Malesick. “We will be honoring 35 sisters who are 50- and 60-year members.”
The centennial celebration begins with an open house reception at the chapter house on Friday at 7 p.m. and ends with a luncheon on Saturday at University Baker Center Ballroom beginning at 11:30 a.m. Opening remarks will be presented by President Roderick J. McDavis, who will attend the luncheon with First Lady Deborah McDavis. Letitia Fulkerson, Chi Omega’s National President, will give the keynote address. A video presentation about the history of the chapter and a performance by alumnae of the “Chi Omega Symphony” will round out the event.
