Centennial Celebration, Indianapolis, IN

For the 44th convention, more than 1,700 attendees witnessed the 100-year celebration of Alpha Chi Omega at the old Indianapolis Convention Center. Favors included a replica of the hand-painted plate from Hannah Kennan (Alpha, DePauw University) to her mother, Bessie Grooms Kennan (Alpha, DePauw University); an address book; a silver music box that played "Dream Song"; a guard and dangle for 100-year chapter celebrations; and a centennial charm. Chapter banners were presented for the first time and created a standing border around the hall. This convention was the first time that the first day of business had a dress code to wear white. Gifts to the Fraternity included a working wooden lyre donated by Gamma Nu Gamma (Baton Rouge, Louisiana) and a centennial quilt made by Jody Bayer Martindill (Alpha, DePauw University).
