October is such an exciting month for us as Delta Zeta Sisters!

Hacienda del Sol Road Tucson, Arizona 85718). Festivities will begin promptly at Noon. Please RSVP to by October 4th if you plan on attending. All Delta Zeta Sisters are welcome to join us, and kindly request you wear your Pink and Green, as well as bring a picture from your time as an active collegian member!

He will be telling us all about his next adventures with Nancy Bowman during our October meeting. Photo is of Oscar standing attention with the guard at the Citadel in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
