2019 DKG Arts & Humanities Conference - Asheville
Nu Chapter was well represented at the 2019 DKG Arts & Humanities Conference in Asheville in June. Nu President Martha Brown and members Dee Snyder, Leslie Black, and Carol Bostian all participated in the three-day event. Our sisters enjoyed the Fun on the Lawn with various artisans displaying their talents in painting, weaving, basket-making and much more. Each Nu member attended various workshops an many different topics. They heard Dr. Kevan Frazier present a detailed and interesting history of Asheville and the development of the River Arts District. DKG International President Cathy Daugherty shared her view of the health of our Society and how each chapter contributes to keeping healthy and native North Carolinian Sheila Kay Adams entertained with stories and music of the NC mountains. It was a wonderful time to network with DKG members from across the United States and to learn more about the impact of the Society in our global educational perspective.
