May 2009 Newsletter

Rachel’s Ramblings
If you are like me, you can’t wait for summer to get here! Heading out for vacation, taking the kids to the pool and some relaxation are on my agenda for this summer. The CAKD officers hope that you have a nice, relaxing start to the summer – but don’t forget about your beloved Kappa Delta. I’ve attached a quick update on all things Central Arkansas Kappa Delta. As always, feel free to get in touch with my by e-mail at

May Lunch Bunch
5 KDs met for lunch at Pei Wei in Little Rock on May 14th for a quick bite to eat. We hope that you can come out to one of our future lunch bunch or happy hour events.

CAKD has no new report from nationals about the upcoming colonization at UALR. However, we expect to hear more throughout the summer, and especially after convention and the new CDC’s begin their duties.

The Scholarship committee has begun discussing the UALR scholarship that the Central Arkansas KD AA is going to help get started. We have completed the criteria, and now will begin the process of finding ways to fund the scholarship. There is still room on the committee for you, so please let us know if you are interested in helping us with the scholarship.

Panhellenic Tea / Little Rock Potential New Members
The panhelleic tea was held on April 26th, and that can only mean one thing for us – The reference book will start to be filled up with the potential new members from the Little Rock area. Please send an e-mail to if you are able to help us out with references from specific schools, churches, or community groups.

KD Magazine Agency
You may have received an e-mail about this, but the Kappa Delta Foundation is wrapping up sales for year end on June 30th. They are still short of their $500,000 goal, and would love some help from the Alumnae. You can help out our local Alumnae Association by using the pull down menu and finding “Central Arkansas,” or you can help support any other chapter (but all the money raised goes to the Kappa Delta Foundation, and not individual chapters or AA’s) Click Here for a link to all the magazines that are available.

CAKD Officers
During the past month we added two new officers to the CAKD board.

Secretary – Mimi Mangrum
Social Chair – Amanda Pace

Mimi will help keep the records, and stay current with mailings. Amanda will help coordinate the happy hour events, among other duties. Welcome Mimi and Amanda to the officer board! Thank you for your willingness to serve!
