It's been close to 3 weeks since I returned home from a second trip to New York, this last time for my sorority reunion. My sorority - Alpha Sigma Beta, used to be Alpha Sigma Alpha which is a national sorority. In the 50's, New York ruled that there were to be no national fraternities throughout the university system, and we became AEB.
A few years back, one of the gals from the class of 61, decided to try and find as many sisters as she could to form a directory. One thing led to another and then a committee and after 2 years of hard work and fun, Joan was able to track down over 700 sisters over the course of 40+ years. This led to another thought - to have a reunion and invite everyone. The reunion was scheduled for the same time as Homecoming weekend. After such a long time, she expected max to be @ 50. To her surprise, 125 sisters came in from all over the US - all ages - all classes. Many of us didn't know each other but had the common link of sisterhood. We took over the Hampton Inn - all 4 floors who joined in our excitement and joy as though they were part of our group.
