Founders Day Celebration

Traditionally the Pasadena Alumnae Chapter has always celebrated Founders Day as an expression of pride in its heritage. Beginning in 1962, members celebrated this very important day with the Los Angeles Chapter and in 1969 made a decision to honor Founders Day separately. Even now, as we fully participate in the planning of the Founders Day celebration by the Southern California Coordinating Council of Delta we continue to mark the anniversary with a unique celebration during the official Pasadena Alumnae Chapter January meeting.

One of our largest celebrations was in 1974, when, according to the Pasadena Star News, "The appearance of Dr. Emma McFarlin, a special assistant to Mayor Thomas Bradley of Los Angeles, created wide interest. The members of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated, had to apologize to those of the public who were thinking it was an open meeting and had come to hear her speak."

In 2010, the Pasadena Alumnae Chapter will be hosting the 2010 Southern California Coordinating Council Founders Day celebration at the Pasadena Convention Center January 22 & 23.  The Legacy Continues: A Celebration of Vision, Purpose, & Hope theme will serve as the guide for activities.
