It was the 2014 Tri-Chapter Founder’s Day Celebration and Luncheon for Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated over the weekend in Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania. The event drew nearly four-hundred members to commemorate the visionaries who founded the organization in 1908 at Howard University.
As a lifetime member of AKA, I was thrilled and honored to be the keynote speaker on the theme: “We Are One: Strengthening the Bonds of Sisterhood.”
Three area chapters including Omega Omega, Rho Theta Omega and Phi Beta Omega participated in the luncheon event together which also included a Tri-Chapter choir and awards given to sorority sisters for their outstanding participation and dedication to their respective chapters in the local community.
AKA’s motto: “service to all mankind” was highlighted at the event. Members remarked on the sorority’s history and underscored the importance our founders who came together to form a sisterhood that fosters mutual uplift by nurturing and encouraging women with like minds and shared values to engage in social outreach that continues to this day with AKA’s 260,000 members.
