Beta Eta Founders' Day - 83 years and Still Achieveing the Heights

The Beta Eta collegians invited their local ETE alumnae over for the 83rd Founders' Day Dinner. Beta Eta was founded at the Florida State College for Women March 29, 1929.

We enjoyed viewing the chapter's charter, seeing the gentlemen of Sigma Phi Epsilon who stopped by to bring chocolate-covered strawberries for the occasion, and dining on chicken marsala. Alumnae from old chapters to young chapters attended the event. We represented Pi chapter, Beta Eta chapter, Theta Lambda chapter and Kappa Xi chapter.

Marie the house director always decorates for the seasons and she sent the alumnae home with Gerber daises set in spring buckets - what a treat!
