FROM STAFF REPORTS
The ladies of the Daytona Beach Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., held their annual Hats on luncheon June 7 honoring senior citizens for their contributions to the community.
Hats were on for Delta Dear Loretta Osgood Wright, who served for many years as chairperson of the luncheon following former chair Josephine Kennedy.
The event included memorable moments by some of Wright’s sisters and a hat show entitled “Crowns on Parade.” Women attending the event modeled the crowns provided by FiFi’s Beauty Salon and Day Spa.
Hats Off winners
This year the sorority highlighted Dr. Shirley B. Lee and Bertran Wallace for being the “most seasoned” individuals in attendance. In addition, Mr. and Mrs. Hats Off were crowned. They are Aloyd Hurley and Teresa Santoro. The sorority made a financial contribution to the Rose Marie Bryon Children’s Center, which has been a cornerstone in the community for over 60 years.
Janice Wright Walton, daughter of the honoree and mistress of ceremony for the event, said to the guests, “it’s so amazing that you have come out to remember my mother and for this I wish to say, “I thank you for everything.” This was something her mother would always say to anyone that would do anything for her.
