A special tribute today as we look forward to the 131st birthday of Alpha Chi Omega Women's Fraternity, Inc. on October 15th (our Founders' Day at DePauw University, Greencastle, IN).
We celebrate a sister who lived a good life and remained active with #AXO for all her 95 years!
Edith Marjorie "Margie" Smith Green visited the chapter to receive her 75-year member pin in April 2014. Her grandson (an FSU Sigma Chi alumnus), her son and daughter-in-law (an FSU circus alumna and AXO alumna initiate!) accompanied Margie. Our alumnae chapter and the Beta Eta collegians ate dinner, presented her pin, celebrated with cake, took photos and sang. ETE was so blessed to meet Margie and help with the celebration.
Fun Fact: Margie was best buddies with Mary Budd Holmes. Here are their two bricks from the brick sidewalk at Beta Eta.
