Looking forward to AXO Convention

At Convention in 2010 I attended a breakout session at which we listened to the audio of interviews with Alpha Chi founders that had been found and digitized. Judy also attended the session and told us great stories about getting to the earliest Conventions she was a part of. To get out to California, everyone took the Alpha Chi train across the country together. When they stopped in cities and towns, sisters who lived there would join the group and alumnae would meet the train and perform little skits on the platform. In Salt Lake City everyone got off the train and got to ride the ski lift up and down the mountain. Estelle Leonard was there (though quite elderly); she sat at the bottom and enjoyed watching the collegians.

My first Convention was in St. Louis in 1992. It was in the same hotel where we're meeting this year, though the hotel has been renovated and has a new owner. In 1992, it was an Adams Mark; now it's a Hyatt. It will be interesting to see what has changed and what is the same.

Sisters, I hope to see you there!
