On November 9, 1942, nine Alumnae of Kappa Kappa Gamma met informally for lunch at the Windsor Hotel in Jacksonville, Florida for the purpose of forming an Alumnae organization. A group picture was taken and sent to The Key. Thirty-five cents each was collected from the following members to pay for the pictures, postage, etc. The original members of this alumni association are:
· Madge Gunby Bowers
· Mary Champine Carey
· Flora Niel Doe
· Dorothy Crise Green
· Margaret Sneed Hughes
· Alice Loos Obenauer
· Dorothy Watkins O’Connell
· Mary Apgar Sanford
· Eleanor Rock Warren
Our Association draws from Jacksonville, Florida and the surrounding areas, and our members represent all ages. Our programs are designed to spark an interest in every Kappa Sister, through socializing, arts and crafts, philanthropic events, and sharing memories.
We offer a variety of interest groups, including: Mommy Group, Book Club, Night Owls, Lunch Bunch, and Movie Group.
We are excited to celebrate the 50th anniversary of our association this year!
