Special Interest Groups
Special Interest Groups help members connect on a more personal level and tend to be rewarding and fulfilling. Form a group comprised of members sharing a common interest (Book Club, Mommy ‘n Me, Sister Mixers) with the intention of having this group create a bond with one another as well as the alumnae group. Interest Groups should have a chairman to be a liaison between the SIG and the alumnae chapter or association.

In the house of Helios, the god of the sun and mightiest of the Titans, a daughter is born. But Circe is a strange child—not powerful, like her father, nor viciously alluring like her mother.

Active Anchors / Anchor Kids / Community Service
We've had interest in an Active Anchor SIG (meet for hikes and other outdoor activities to take advantage of our beautiful city), Anchor Kids SIG (meeting with other DG moms for playdates), and a Community Service SIG (providing additional opportunities to Do Good). Interested in leading or joining one of these groups? Please contact Candace Bynder for more information. Leading a SIG is a great way to give back to our chapter and to connect with like-minded sisters! We'll give you all the tools you need to succeed, and it takes as little or as much time as you're willing to give.
