Hats Off toAOn
From the President's Desk:
Alumnae you're tops!
By Barbara Daugs Hunt
Phi Delta (U. of Wisconsin, Milwaukee) International President
stands ready to support you in re- turn. The Alumnae Operations Director and I are willing to assist alumnae chapters. Judy Bourassa has bolstered the services of the De- partment with creative and innova- tive programming ideas. She wants to hear from you. Tell her what we need to do to involve you in our organization. I am also eager to hear from alumnae. I want to know your ideas and dreams; I need to know how AOII can be improved.
I'm glad that I have this opportu- nity to publicly thank each of you. On behalf of the Executive Board, the AOII Foundation, Regional Of- ficers, and each Collegiate Chapter, I extend to each of you our deepest appreciation and love. Thank you forajobwelldone!
May this decade be further testi- mony to the lifetime commitment eachofusmadetoserveAlphaOm- icron Pi.
As part of our salute to alumnae, the new To Dragma department, "Ap- plause!" makes its debut in this is- sue. This column contains short items about accomplishments of alumnae, and, believe me, the To Dragma Advisory Committee had a tough job selecting whom to in- clude. Other items of special inter- est to alumnae include the 50 year member list and Judy Bourassa's ar- ticle on the "Rosevine" network.
Judy, Theta Pi (Wagner College), is an Executive Board Director and a member of the Phoenix Alumnae Chapter.
—Beth Grantham To Dragma
It is fitting that AOII alumnae are highlighted in this issue. Thousands of dedicated and committed AOIIs continue to serve the Fraternity throughout the world.
The last Harris Directory shows that there are AOIIs residing around the world. Perhaps there will soon be an alumnae chapter in Mexico, Germany, or England.
Alumnae are the foundation of our Fraternity. Each year we call on more of them to assist with collegiate chapters, serve on International Standing Committees, lend their ex- pertise to special projects, and net- work with other alumnae in their communities and professional ca- reers.
We call on alumnae annually for financial support of the Develop- ment Fund, which pays for special educational projects to serve our col- legians. Our alumnae contribute gen- erously to the Ruby Fund on Foun- ders' Day. Our alumnae chapters
"Hats Offto AOII Volunteers!"
That cover line is To Dragma's way of saluting all the women who do- nate their time and energy to the Fra- ternity. There are nearly 500 listed
raise money annually for arthritis re- search grants. They generously fund scholarships for our collegians. Finally, alumnae are being ap- proached for contributions to our growing Endowment Fund. The En- dowment Fund is the key to a bright future for AOII, because it will be the means to fund additional train- ing seminars for our future leaders.
We ask a lot from our alumnae, and we have high expectations. We look to them to provide leadership. We ask them to share their talents, expertise and time with us.
I hope it is as apparent to you as it is to me that Alpha Omicron Pi places great importance on commit- ted alumnae. This To Dragma issue is dedicated to our alumnae. We want you to know that we appreci- ate everything each alumna does to support and enrich AOII.
For all of our expectations of our alumnae members, the Fraternity
as current office holders in AOII's records. But we at Headquarters know that there are many women out there who give of their time and talents who are not listed as officers. I doubt that there would be enough storage in the computer system to list all of you who help, even if we did know your names!
Of course, AOIIs also volunteer for other organizations. Candy Pierson-Charlton, Alpha Rho (Ore- gon State U.),has a list of volunteer
jobs a mile long. What better per- son to write about the joys of volun- teer work. Please read her article on the inside pages.

It's all those intangibles about Al- pha Omicron Pi, the things you can't quite put your finger on, that give AOII the meaning it has in our lives. One of our greatest intangible as- sets is the networking that exists among our sisters.
Sometimes we network and we don't even realize it. Have you ever referred a sister to a doctor, gotten her a date, a job? That's network- ing. So is the sharing of local knowl- edge with someone new in your area. The information you share about housing, schools, and places of worship are invaluable aids to the newcomer as she setdes into the com- munity.
The name "Rose Vine" has been given to all the networking opportu- nities that exist within AOII. Our RoseVineisnotaspecificprogram. Rather, it is an opportunity for all members of AOII, be they alumnae or collegians, to share their knowl- edge and skills. It can exist any- where.
During our college years we de- velop some of our closest, longest last- ing friendships. We are together at a formative time in our lives, and we share the common bond of Al- pha Omicron Pi. As we move into the world of alumnae, it becomes ob- vious that our common bond con- tinues. Wherever we go, whatever we do, there are AOII alumnae ready to be a part of our lives.
Alumnae chapters all over the country provide the basis for our Rose Vine network. Whether you needareferralforajob,adoctor,a school, or even a babysitter, alum- nae chapters have within their mem- bership the information and re-
sources necessary for a flourishing Rose Vine. Alumnae chapter mem- bers come from all walks of life and represent numerous career paths. They support and assist each other.
To make the most of these oppor- tunities, every alumna should affili- ate with an alumnae chapter. Most chapters meet once a month, have one fund raiser per year, and pro- vide a variety of programs. Finding a chapter is easy, joining one is even easier —and you'll never regret your involvement.
Alumnae chapters work closely with the collegiate chapters; support- ing the activities of the collegiate chap- ters is vital. One of the ways that alumnae can introduce collegians to the Rose Vine is by hostessing a career night. The alumnae chapter has within its ranks the expertise and information that many collegians need to get started in their chosen fields.
Recent graduates, or any alumnae, should contact the local alumnae chapter forinformation on anything from job opportunities, to housing, to when the next alumnae chapter meeting will be. Any alumna who has traveled from chap- ter to chapter across the United States and Canada can tell you how comforting it is to have friends and sisters waiting to welcome you in a new area.
Of course, there are some places where AOII does not have an alum- nae chapter. That doesn't mean AOIIs don't live there, just that the ones living their probably aren't aware that there are other AOIIs nearby. I f you are one of these, the Rose Vine is there for you, too. Let
International Headquarters know who you are and where you are. They can provide you with the names of other AOIIs living near you. I f you are moving, Headquar- ters can provide information on whom to contact for local informa- tion.
Independent women of today need other women. That's what AOII is all about —meeting our needs and the needs of others throughout the various stages of our lives. AOII is not just a commitment made during and for the college years. It lasts forever, wherever we go, whatever we do.
This biennium our theme is "Accept the Challenge." I urge you to accept the challenge of continu- ing your affiliationwith AOII no mat- ter where you are. Don't ever say, " I wasanAOII."Youarenowand will forever be an AOII. Be proud to say, "I am an AOII."
The Rose Vine is just one of the many assets that AOII has to offer. It's there foryou!

By Candace Pierson-Charlton Alpha Rho (Oregon State U.) International Alumnae Program- ming Chairman
Four months and 37 babysitters ago I volunteered to write an arti- cle for To Dragma on volunteering. At the time it sounded like a won- derful idea, but as the last hours tick away and the deadline draws near, I find I am having a difficult time putting pen to paper. However, I do have a few thoughts on the sub-
ject and if I can keep from hitting the "Word Eraser" key on my type- writer, maybe we're in business.
Last fall, as the Scholarship Ad- viser for Zeta Chapter of Alpha Om- icronPiattheU.ofNebraska, Iin- vited myself to speak to the new pledge class. M y message was sim- ple:
"Study hard —that's why you are here — and by studying hard you will make the grades so you can become an initiated member of Alpha Omi- cron Pi."
When I got home and started think- ing, I wished I could go back for an- other chat with them — only this time my message would be slightly dif- ferent.
"Make the most of your time here and get involved," is what I would say. "That includes making the most of academic opportunities on cam- pus (i.e., study, study, study), and making the most of opportunities to participate in campus activities."
As on every campus, there are a number of women in Zeta Chapter who have excelled — both scholasti- cally and through extracurricular ac- tivities. I f you looked at their re- sumes you would be impressed. They have a list of campus activities as long as my arm, and they belong to numerous honoraries.
I want to tell the newest AOIIs to take a look at these sisters who ac- cepted the challenge and got in- volved as volunteers. They can be found in every chapter, but their numbers need to increase. I want to urge my newest AOII sisters to say "yes" to chapter and campus volun- teer opportunities. These leadership challenges will stand you in good stead now and in the future. You will have fun. You will meet new people and make new friends. You will have the satisfaction of doing good things for others, and doors will open for you.
Once you graduate the volunteer- ing doesn't stop — it's just beginning! Wherever your job takes you, there are many chances to take on leader- ship roles in your community. And there are side benefits for you: you become more well known in your community and you have more net- working opportunities. Potential em- ployers take notice — I know from ex- perience.
I served on the Board of Direc- tors for the American Cancer Soci- ety in my early years in Anchorage, Alaska. Out of that experience came a job offer as a field representative for the Society. Eight years later I was offered a position which re- quired high visibility in the commu- nity. I was told that one of the rea- sons I got the job was because of my extensive community involvement.
There is a saying which goes something like this, "Bloom where you are planted." What wonderful words to live by! I think this means "make the most of each day and seize every opportunity to get in- volved." I have tried to live by that adage and so have many of my friends.
One of my co-workers was very activeasavolunteerforUnitedWay and the Big Brother, Big Sister pro- gram in Anchorage. Another friend worked with deaf children in her com- munity because she knew sign lan- guage, and started an "adopt a spe- cial friend" program through the local humane society.
Why do they do it? If you sat down and talked with each person you would probably hear many of the same answers. They are all car- ing individuals who want to make their communities better through vol- unteer efforts. They like meeting peo-
ple and enjoy new challenges.
In my alma mater's journalism newsletter, one alumna gave a brief synopsis of her professional activi- ties and mentioned she was a volun- teer co-editor of the AAUW Marin Branch Newsletter. She went on to say that "a journalist can practice his/ her 'career' in the community." I have numerous friends who have taken advantage of volunteer oppor- tunities for professional develop-
ment—and I, too, have benefited. When I moved to Alaska, I had no broadcasting experience. I vol- unteered for the local public radio station, KSKA, and eventually shared a weekly health program with another health professional. I called my show "Let's Get Physical," and I did all the interviews, wrote the scripts and did the production work. It wasn't easy — and the show never became nationally syndicated —but I had lots of laughs, on and off the
Before this article turns into a book manuscript, I am going to sign off. I applaud all of you out there who volunteer in your community — through your church, social service agencies, special programs and events, professional societies and so on.

A "typical" AOU volunteer is...
She is in her mid 30's, works in the field of education, is married and has children.
Who is this woman?
She is, as nearly as statistics in Headquarters records can figure, the "typical* AOII volunteer.
But, she is almost as likely to be in her 20's or 40's and be a social worker, registered nurse, or em- ployed in the communications field. Or she may be a full time mother.
The reason for these variations, of course, is that there is no "typi- cal" AOII volunteer.
They come in all ages. Some are employed and others are not. And they come from many different pro- fessions.
There are some interesting trends, however.
Of the 475 women whose current AOII volunteer work is tracked in our database, nearly 70% are also employed outside the home. So the image of the stay at home housewife who does volunteer work is no longer completely accurate.
These women serve as the officers of the collegiate and alumnae chap- ters, as chapter advisers, regional of- ficers, on corporation boards, as international officers, and on com- mittees. T h e youngest are around 19 and the oldest are in their 90's. Interestingly enough, the largest number of volunteers comes from the group of women who are now in their 30's. Apparently, young fami- lies and busy careers do not keep these women from taking on other activities.
The next two largest groups of vol- unteers come from women in their 20's (117) and their 40's (110).
One might assume that in an or- ganization such as AOII, the typi- cal volunteer would start at the "grass roots" level as a young person and work her way up to the interna- tional offices over the years. Thus, one would expect to find that the higher the office, the older the office holder.
What happens, though, is that all ages are represented in all levels of
The popularity of volunteerism is
not limited to AOII. A recent sur- vey conducted by the Gallup Organ- ization and reported in Newsweek magazine disclosed that 45% of Americans age 18 and older did some form of volunteer work in 1987. Older people (age 65 to 74) volunteered the most, followed by the 45 to 54 age group.
Are most volunteers wealthy? Not according to the Gallup survey. T h e income level with the most volun- teers fell squarely in the middle class —households with incomes from $20,000 to $30,000. T h e next highest level of volunteers was from households with earnings of $50,000 to $75,000.
Though 475 might seem like a lot of volunteers, there is room for more. Vice President/Operations Mary Williams' appeal in this issue for Regional Directors is evidence of AOII's continuing need.
been active in numerous profes- sional and charitable organizations. Her AOII activities have included serving as a Chapter Consultant, Lincoln Alumnae Chapter Presi- dent, International Alumnae Pro- gramming Chairman, and Scholar- ship Adviser to Zeta Chapter. She and her husband currently live in Lincoln, Nebraska with their young daughter.
And for those of you who are not committed to a volunteer effort at the moment—I hope you soon de- cide to do so. Your community needs you—especially the children and the elderly. OurAOII commu- nity needs you, too. May you find something that brings you satisfac- tion, adventure, and friends.

Kappa Phi returns to McGill
By Margie Lyman Kappa Phi (McGill U.)
Kappa Phi Chapter returned to McGill University, Montreal, Que- bec on Saturday, November 11, 1989. The second Canadian chap- ter of Alpha Omicron Pi, Kappa Phi, was originally chartered in 1939 and remained active until 1972. Throughout the seventies and eight- ies the Montreal Alumnae Chapter dreamed of the day when Kappa Phi would again be active on the McGill campus.
That dream became a reality in the historic library of Trafalgar School when 26 collegians and 2 alumnae became sisters in AOII and Kappa Phi Chapter was installed. The installation of the chapter was the culmination of a period of hard work and dedication since the colo- nization of a local group in the fall of 1987.
TheweekendbeganwithRoseIn- spiration Night held at the home of colony member Rosalie Coons. Sis- ters of Beta Tau Chapter, Univer- sity of Toronto, were on hand to lead the depinning ceremony and share some of their chapter's special tradi-
tions. Sharron Starling, Regional Di- rector, and the Alumnae Advisory Committee joined in the evening's festivities.
Saturday's installation was con- ducted by Barbara Hunt, Interna- tional President. Assisting her were: Sharron Starling, Regional Direc- tor; Theresa McGowan, Regional Director; Montreal's ownJoan Mac- Callum, Past International Presi- dent; and sisters from Beta Tau. Montreal Alumnae Chapter mem- bers served as sponsors. A t the con- clusion of the ceremony each new initiate received a long stemmed red rose and signed her name in the orig- inal Kappa Phi Roll Book contain- ing the signatures of all Kappa Phi members since 1939.
A Rose Banquet honoring the new initiates was held Saturday night in the Vice-Regal Suite of the Ritz Carlton Hotel where a red and white theme reflected both the McGill colors and those of AOII. Toastmistress Sandy Amos, Chap- ter Adviser, conducted the evening's festivities which included "The Red
Rose OfAlpha OmicronPi."Sandy Amos, JoAnn Dery, Montreal Alum- nae Chapter President, Sharron Star- ling, Joan MacCallum, and Barbara Hunt each spoke of the parts of the rose and their significance to AOII. Alix Kersey, chapter president, thanked the Advisory Committee members for their help and leader- ship and sent a special thank you to Nima Chandler, Chapter Consult- ant, forher inspirationduring rush.
The Beta Tau Ritual Team, Mon- treal Alumnae Chapter members, and representatives from the Ottawa Alumnae Chapter attended. Three original Kappa Phi charter mem- bers, Dorothy Stalker, Sister Mar- garet Johnson and Betty McNab were special guests.
The evening ended with colle- gians and alumnae singing the Ep- silon Chapter Song and rejoicing in the fact that 50 years after Kappa Phi was first installed it had once again taken its place among the chap- ters ofAlpha OmicronPi.
For these alumnae, a round of

The women featured in this pre- mier edition of To Dragma's "Ap- plause!" column, certainly deserve recognition. Some of the criteria used to select the women included are: being elected to a city wide, state or national political office, be- ing honored by her profession at a state or higher level, unusual and wor- thy accomplishments, and having an unusual profession and winning rec- ognition within it. This new depart- ment is Alpha Omicron Pi's way of giving each one a well deserved round of applause.
Ellie Walker Thelkel, Nu Omi- cron (Vanderbilt U.), is a City Com- missioner in Winter Haven, Florida. Ellie won election to the city wide post in 1988 when she ran unop- posed. In what must be something of a record, she spent only $185 on her campaign and returned the rest of the contributions she received, ac- cording to The Ledger of Lakeland, Florida.
Another AOII who is serving in elected officeis Mayor Marcia Kyle Rinehart of Leawood, Kansas. Mar- cia, Phi (U. of Kansas), served on the City Council for six years before being elected mayor. She is a mem- ber of the Kansas City Alumnae Chapter. Before entering politics, Marcia taught French.
Adelaide (Del) Krone Lloyd, Theta Eta (U. of Cincinnati), was named the "Outstanding Dietitian for 1989" by the Maryland Dietetic Association. This is the highest award of the association, and it is based on professional achievement and active involvement in state and national activities. Del was also ap- pointed to the State Board of Die- tetic Practice by the Governor of
Maryland in 1989. Del is correspond- ing secretary of the Baltimore Alum- nae Chapter.
Another AOII dietitian who was recently honored by a professional group is Sheila Dye Ward, Phi (Kan- sas U.). Sheila received an Outstand- ing Service Award from the 60,000 member American Dietetic Associa- tion for her service to the profession via her work on significant commit- tees of the A.DA. Sheila is currendy employed by the Indiana U. School of Medicine in Indianapolis. Her mother, Halbur Bartlett Dye, is also an AOII (Phi, Kansas U ) .
Alice Wessels Burlingame, Omi- cron Pi (U. of Michigan), 84 years old, now retired, has been a lecturer, teacher, author, and innovator in horticultural therapy. Alice com- bined her training in psychiatric social work and occupational ther- apy with an interest in horticulture to fashion her unusual career. She is the winner of numerous awards honoring her work. Alice now makes her home in Southfield, Michigan.
Gayle Karch Cook, Beta Phi (Indi- ana U.), the co-owner with her hus- band, of Cook, Inc., a medical in- struments firm, has won numerous awards for her work in historic pres- ervation. The list of buildings she has restored is lengthy, as are the awards she has received. Her most recent was the 1987 Civic Service Award from the Indiana Association of Cities and Towns. Gayle is a board member of the Indiana Uni- versity Foundation and the Monroe County Historical Society Museum. Her book, A Guide to Southern Indiana is now in its 4th edition. Gayle is a member of the Bloomington Alum- nae Chapter.

Holly Gooding Miller
To Dragma's "Notable" for this is- sue is Adrian Katz, Charles Whit- ney, Leslie Holden and Whitney Charles.
This is not an error, nor is it in- correct grammar.
All of these "people" are pen names of Holly Gooding Miller, Beta Phi (Indiana U.), a woman of many names —and talents.
Chief among her talents is writ- ing—she's the author of 11 books and 2,000 magazine articles. With all her pen names, one interviewer
jokingly wrote that Holly Miller is only Holly Miller when she's not working.
In addition to writing, Holly has worked as a senior editor at the Sat- urday Evening Post. She is still a con- tributing editor there where her spe- ciality is interviews of famous peo- ple. Her profile of the husband-wife acting team of Jill Eikenberry and Michael Tucker of "LA Law" made the Post's April 1989 cover.
Another talent is teaching. Holly teaches a class in public relations at Anderson University in her home town of Anderson, I N . She gained expertise in this field when she worked in General Motors Corp.'s public relations department. She also teaches a weekly evening class in creative writing at Indiana U . - Purdue U . at Indianapolis. She be- gan her career as a newspaper re-
porter after obtaining a degree in journalism at Indiana U. Reporting was later combined with obtaining a masters degree (at Ball State U.) and taking care of a growing fam- ily—the older of her two sons often accompanied her to press confer-
Holly is currently working on a
book about women and worka- holism, "how to recognize it, how to channel it, how to stop it." She thinks the greatest challenge facing women today is "setting and achiev- ing high goals and learning to take risks." She believes a person should always be "breaking new ground."
Apparently she lives her beliefs; Holly began writing fiction after 25 years as a non-fiction magazine writer.
As "Leslie Holden," Holly and col- laborator Dennis Hensley, have writ- ten several mystery-romance novels. They began their collaboration as a lark. For their pseudonym, they com- bined "Hoi" for Holly and "Den" for Dennis. They chose "Leslie" because it could be a man or a woman. When sales took off and "Leslie" was invited to appear on talk shows, they "confessed" and appeared on the shows together.
She is a two time winner of the Associated Press Feature Writing Award. She has also received the Lowell Thomas Travel Writing Award and an Award of Excellence
in Writing for her work at General Motors. These are just some of the more than 30 writing and editing awards Holly has won for her work in the magazine and newspaper fields.
Not surprisingly, she was the cam- pus editor of the newspaper and pres- ident of a journalism honorary in col- lege. She was also president of her chapter of AOII.
"AOII gave me the opportunity to learn leadership skills at a time when women didn't participate at the top of most organizations," Holly says. "I learned to love it!"
Many years ago, Holly served as president of what was then the A n - derson Alumnae Club of AOII. In addition to her AOII activities, she has served as president of the A n - derson Community Schools Board and as a member of her local hospi- tal board of directors. She has
judged numerous writing contests and is a frequent speaker at writers' workshops.
If she could give collegians advice, Holly says it would be to "get one more college degree than you think youll need." She also advises women to "maintain your independence."
Holly has enjoyed her writing ca- reer.
"It's full of surprises, and no mat- ter how long you work at it, you never quite master it," she says.

From Our Readers:
Use maiden names, please.
To the editor:
In last year's To Dragma, under me-
morials, you named Delta Sigma's Georgeann Ward. I found out last week that she is alive and well. Many of us Delta Sigmas were very upset when she was listed and we mourned her death. Please check your computer as I am sure some- one punched in the wrong key. Thank you.

Thank you for writing. The cor-
rection has been made. To Dragma regrets the error.

To the editor:
What a beautiful fall edition of To
Dragma\ You really brought the In- ternational Convention to all of us who couldn't be there.
You are to be commended not only for this issue, but for all the is- sues for the last year. Thank you for a job well done.

To the editor:
I greatly enjoy reading To Dragma.
Thanks for printing such a fun and informative magazine. It keeps me abreast of all that's going on in Alpha Omicron Pi.
Tau Delta (Birmingham-Southern College)
To the editor:
I have a suggestion for future is-
sues of To Dragma ifit is feasible. Every year, you publish a list of 50 year members by chapter. Since I am an Epsilon, I always read their
list. Last year, for the first time, I noticed that each AOII was listed by her married name. I find this rather confusing when I do not know the AOIFs married name and the first name could be that of several sisters. As I get older, I am more aware, also, of the fact that my maiden name is my real name that I have had from birth. Call it a new form of consciousness raising for women.
At any rate, since I expect to be on the 50 year list in 1990, is it pos- sible to include the maiden names aswellasmarriednamesofthoseof us so honored?
Elizabeth Weldgen Eddins
Epsilon (Cornell U.)
Your point is well taken. We have
incorporated your suggestion in this issue. Congratulations on your 50th anniversary of being an AOII.

I am a woman of today —strong—resourceful —caring. I want to help make sure that I and those I care about are provided for. That includes my family and my fraternity. As part of my financial plan, I have included support forthe Alpha Omicron Pi Foundation Endowment Fund.
A significant way to support the Endowment Fund is through a charitable annuity in which I can pay a certain sum into a carefully managed trust that will pay income to me or to another beneficiary for life.
Remembering AOII in my will is a significant way of giving. M y bequest can establish a last- ing memorial to me or to someone I wish to honor and I can make a bequest in a variety of ways. Because AOII is important to me and to my sisters, I will help insure its future by contribut- ing to the Foundation's ability to fund a national leadership training center, personal develop-
ment programs and historical archives.
I hope you will join me in supporting AOIFs future and will take a few minutes to complete
