On Saturday, May 13th Delta Upsilon Omega (DUO) gathered for their annual Sister to Sister luncheon at Foster Golf Links in Tukwila, Washington. DUO members were joined by members from Zeta Omega Omega chapter (Tacoma, Washington), and many other AKA members from around the Puget Sound. Attendees looked beautiful dressed in pretty pink and green attire in a room filled with lovely Spring flowers. A delicious lunch of fresh fish, chicken, seasonal vegetables, rolls, tea, coffee and cake was served to guests.

Each Spring, DUO takes a moment to bring sorors together to reflect on our sisterhood and strengthen our bond. This year’s Sister to Sister luncheon theme paid tribute to “The Legacy of Our Leadership.” For nearly 70 years, DUO has supported the greater Seattle area through community service programs, providing scholarships to high school students seeking higher education, and civic engagement. The Since 1948, DUO’s work in the Seattle area has been led by 27 esteemed women who have served as chapter president. Attendees at this year’s Sister to Sister luncheon were excited to have many former DUO chapter presidents in attendance, including one former president who served in 1962. “We are honored to have such a rich history of leadership in the Greater Seattle area and are inspired to continue the work our past chapter leaders began in 1948,” said Soror Ada Hardy, DUO Membership & Sisterly Relations Chairman. DUO will continue to strive to be of “Service to All Mankind.”
