Regional ConferenceH I G H L I G H T S “Hats Off to Delta Dears.” Following the musical performance, members of the chapter’s liturgical dance team, Pure Essence, gave a very command- ing performance to the tune of gospel artist, Kirk Franklin’s, “I Smile.” Later, Delta Dears were taken on a trip down memory lane, playing an old school game called Name That Tune. Several volunteers split into two teams and listened to melodies from the 50s, 60s and 70s. Teams received points for correctly nam- ing the tune. Not only did the teams identify the tunes, they also gave impromptu renditions of the songs. Although one team identifi ed more tunes than the other, all the partici- pants were winners and members of both teams received gifts. Numerous door prizes were awarded and all Delta Dears who at- tended the reception received spe- cial gifts. Sorors adorned in their 43rd Southwest Regional Conference shirts.
