Happy Birthday Tri Kappa

Past Tri Kappa members Melva Spicer, Barbara Allen, Margo Jolly, Truly Chastain, Jeanne Apple are shown here with a State Province Officer, circa late 60's, early 70's.

Happy Birthday, Tri Kappa! The local chapter is celebrating 100 years! A special celebration will be help Sunday, March 10 from 2-4 at the Salem Courthouse. Everyone is inivited to step back in time and celebrate 100 years of charity, culture and education.

Reflecting on the past, member Angie Mead writes, "Much like our current Beta Tau members, the ladies of the original Beta Tau chapter represented a wide variety of professions.  Desse Rudder, was listed as a graduate pharmacist.  Florence Morgan Crim was a member of the Women’s Press Club of Indiana.  Lena King Paynter was a graduate of Campbellsburg High School and in charge of Red Cross Surgical Dressings.  Lera Berky Zink was a Guardian of the Camp Fire Girls and member of the Public Library Board.  As one can see, women have always juggled multiple obligations.  Yet, the ladies of Beta Tau have always found time to serve their community."
