52nd National Convention C O V E R A G E JOURNAL Spring 2016 s27 rors waved red bandanas and raised voices, joining the musical produc-tion in many songs. Sorors danced the evening away under the spot-lights of the stage to the Motown hits. As the production came to an end, fire truck sirens could be heard approaching from afar. The red fire trucks circled the park twice as “Fire” by the Ohio Players played in the background. Firemen made their way to the stage to welcome members of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. to the red hot city of Houston. As the firemen left the stage, fireworks filled the air above the George R. Brown Convention Center, choreographed to “Girl on Fire” by Alicia Keys. “It was obvious that the Houston area sorors worked diligently to pre-pare for the welcome event,” said So-ror Montecella “Cindy” Driver, mem-ber of Tulsa Alumnae Chapter. “The Motown Revue was amazing, fire-works completed the night.   Much excitement, Delta pride and sister-ly  connections were evident.” Many sorors could be seen tak-ing advantage of photo opportunities with the cowgirl silhouettes placed throughout the park, as well as, the huge “Welcome to Houston” banners. Hostesses continued to distribute water and complimentary “red hot” bandanas until the last soror left the event. “Big kudos to the Houston-area chapters for the love and grand hos-pitality shown during our 52nd Na-tional Convention,” said Soror Miki-ta King, member of Jefferson County Alumnae Chapter in Birmingham, Al-abama. “The music and dancing was welcoming and fun. It was clearly ev-ident that lots of preparation, plan-ning and hard work was done and it paid off. Houston Area Chapters, you rock!” Sorors left the Welcome Event hand in hand, smiling, hugging and ready to focus on the “Work of Delta.” s The hostess chapters welcome members of Delta Sigma Theta to Houston with a Red Hot Round Up Welcome Event at Discovery Green Park in Houston July 24, 2015. PHOTO BY SHARON FARMER “Josie Daniels, 52nd National Convention Coordinator, had a vision and our team made it happen. MAGIC! But to no surprise, that’s what Deltas do.”
