On October 24, 2018, Gamma Eta Master Chapter hosted Gamma Lambda Chapter at the annual Fall Dinner which took place at the Rideau Glen Golf Course. The evening began at 5:30 P. M., with a social hour, followed by a delicious meal prepared by Pam and Don Miller (Just Home Cooking). The meal was enjoyed by all, enhanced by beautiful fall decorations. Master of Ceremonies, Susan Tatarciuc, kept the “ball rolling”, and did a great job.
A highlight of the evening was a presentation by Jane Cater, of the Kemptville Beta Sigma Phi Bursary, “In Memory of Marina Gilmer”, one of our longtime members. This year, the bursary was awarded to Drew Tappin, a very worthy recipient of this award. Drew is the grandson of Diane Tappin, Gamma Lambda chapter. He was accompanied by his dad, Kevin. Drew is in his first year at Carleton University, studying criminology.
Another special moment was “The Order of The Rose” Ritual, received by Patty Paterson, Gamma Lambda Chapter. Patty’s sister, Jane Pelletier, officiated, along with assistants from both Sorority groups. Congratulations to the Social Committee for a job well done.
