Welcome to the Theta blog!

Welcome to the Theta Phi blog!

This blog has been created to allow us to share what's been going on in our lives and communicate with each other in an open forum. 
 
There are two ways you can add news or comments to the blog:

• You can email your comments (and photos) directly to me (azpook@gmail.com).

• You can also add news (but not photos) by clicking on "comments" at the bottom of each posting.  Be sure to check for comments left by others!
 
Whenever there is a new posting, I'll send word out to everyone.
 
Spread the word! Please pass this site along to any Theta sisters you may be in touch with.
 
Looking forward to hearing from you!

 
Yours in Theta,

Alumnae News

This page has been reformatted to allow each new posting to be listed separately. Since there is a limit to how many postings appear on a page, you will need to click on "older posts" (lower right corner of each page) to see previous posts. There are lots of posts hiding there... don't miss them!  Alternatively, you can go to the BLOG ARCHIVE at the bottom of the left sidebar and search for postings by date and title.
 
In most cases, you should be able to click on a photo to enlarge it.

A friend just returned from the Swim Team's 50th anniversary reunion and thought I'd like to see Theta house today. I thought I'd share it with you...

Message from Marg(e) Bufton Bandre '58

The luncheon invitation ---which I must regretfully decline again---arrived here yesterday along with the “Founding of Gamma Chapter of Theta Phi which was filled with facts I either never heard before or have forgotten in the 55 years since I was an active member.
 
The last time I drove through New Paltz I was saddened to see that our house is no longer ours. I have so many memories of that house and the girls who lived there.  I  was also completely lost when I tried to find my way around the campus! The campus I knew is long gone and todays students might laugh at what we thought was quite adequate. (It was good to see Women’s Hall gone. It was not adequate!)
 
I appreciate the time you and others spend to keep the Theta Phi BlogSpot up and running. My class of 1958 started a chain letter which never even got all the way around.  Because I moved away, I quickly lost touch with many good friends.  I deeply regret not being able to get to our 50th reunion---New Paltz is a long way from Kansas City!
 
So, thanks for keeping me in touch with Theta Phi, and for bringing back some memories.
