usy as squirrels: that’s what Alpha Gams are! True in our families, our communities and in our Alpha Gam alumnae group! Once again, we have had an eventful year in the Auburn-Opelika Alumnae Chapter. Since our last Chatterbox, our alums enjoyed a wonderful afternoon with Alpha Gam sisters for lunch on the lawn at the Webster House in Auburn for our annual IRD celebration in April. Alabama Lt. Governor, Kay Ivey ’64, was an inspirational speaker. Our plant sale was a successful fundraiser for the Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation thanks to Kimble Manley Eastman ’83, who helped organize the event again last spring. The senior supper and

he 2011-2012 year has been another great year for the Gamma Delta Chapter at Auburn University. We began the year by proudly supporting Millie Harrison, Whitley Kelley and Megan Murphy, who led exciting campaigns as Top 5 for Miss Auburn, and represented the sisters of Alpha Gamma Delta so wonderfully. Alpha Gamma Delta was so proud when Millie Harrison was announced Miss Auburn, and she has done a wonderful job! As campaign season came to a close, pageant season was just starting up! Emily Busby crowned Hillary Cleckler as the new Miss Glom. Eady Pinckard was crowned second runner-up. We

(Alumnae Chapter News, from page 1)

Over the summer, alums gathered at the cottage home of Bobbie Thomas Umbach ’62 for our annual summer salad luncheon, where we prepared recs for girls going off to college and held a memorial ceremony for three special Alpha Gams who entered Chapter Grand last year: Betty Ann McCaskill Francisco ’49, Dorry Ann Hayes Blackburn ’49 and Luann Mount Cutchens ’61. We were happy to welcome 62 new collegiate members to the Gamma Delta Chapter at Auburn in the fall, as we met and served them a home-cooked meal at the beautiful country home of Laura Webb Rabren ’88! Becky Thorne Carroll ’84 hosted our annual Mother-Daughter Christmas tea in her lovely home in December, where we collected and donated toys for Toys for Tots. We now prepare for a new year and more exciting events to come. We remind the girls when they are pre-

paring to graduate and move out into the world that Alpha Gam will always be a part of their lives; not just their college lives. Alpha Gams should stay connected to their sisters from college, but also find ways to connect with other Alpha Gams where they may settle. Some ways that you can stay connected as an Alpha Gam alum: Keep us informed of where you are and what you are doing! Pay your annual alumnae dues to International and support your local alumnae chapter by paying alumnae fees so that the alumnae chapters can keep doing great things. Call a friend and attend an alumnae event near you. Support your alumnae chapter’s fundraiser. Read the next issue of the Chatterbox! What you can do to contribute will vary with your season in life, but there is always a way to stay connected to Alpha Gam!

are so proud of the girls for their accomplishments and for representing us so well! Another great part of the Spring was the many social events made possible by the hard work of our social chair, Jordan Easter. We thank her for many nights to remember, filled with dancing and laughter with wonderful friends. Our sisters had so much fun at our social, Grab-A-Date, and our annual spring formal, Swampwater, which was held at the beautiful Robert Trent Jones Marriott. Our new philanthropic event, Children’s Walk, was a great success this year, with a wonderful turnout. The event was held at the Town Creek Park. The success of the event and the donation we were able to make to the Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation couldn’t have happened without the hard work of our philanthropy chair, Carol Meyers. The Gamma Deltas ended the Spring semester by receiving campus honors. These honors included first place in grades, and first place in Greek Sing for the third year in a row, with the theme, “Knockout.” We are thankful to Dori Dobbs, Michelle Knowles and Brittney Holmes, for choreographing our winning routine.

Once again, Gamma Delta’s Recruitment was a wonderful success! Kaki Lupas, Jamie Eiland and Jordan Easter worked tirelessly to bring us our New Member class that we are so proud of. The 62 new baby squirrels were initiated into the chapter in October 2011. Katherine Kelley served as “Mama Nut” to the new New Member Class, and did a great job in supporting and encouraging these new sisters all semester long. Through their New Member meetings and fun themed swaps, the girls were able to bond and learn more about the sisterhood of Alpha Gamma Delta. These new member events were all a great success thanks to Katherine, and her New Member Assistants. After our new members were initiated, the annual Feast of Roses took place at Moore’s Mill Country Club. Kendall Watson and Lindsey Haywood did a fantastic job in coordinating this event. In Alpha Gamma Delta, we get excited about supporting our sisters, and as we start off our 2012 year, we have plenty to be excited about! The Gamma Delta Chapter has two girls in the Top 5 for Miss Auburn. As we support Beth Westmoreland and Katherine Kelley in

their campaigns for Miss Auburn, we wish them each the best of luck! We are extremely thankful for the ongoing encouragement and love from our alumnae. We know that our success would not be possible without your generous support! The Gamma Deltas cannot wait to see what awaits us as we start another exciting year!

Remembering two special Alpha Gams

By Elizabeth Jernigan Rodgers ’75

W

e have lost Dorry and LaVerne. Dorry Ann Hayes Johnston Blackburn ’49 was the welcome face of Auburn and Alpha Gam. One of my first visits when I moved to Auburn was to J&M Bookstore. Dorry greeted me as a sister and asked about my family and my life. In her true “Miss Auburn” way, she helped me feel at home. How many times did we gather at her farm? I do not even know. I do know she was always happy to have us for our IRD/ Achievement Day Celebration as well as countless dinners, yard sales and meetings LaVerne Taylor Flanagan - Chapter Grand, Sarah Gholston Skipper ’96, Dorry for many, many years. Dorry was a loyal Alpha Gamma Delta. She Ann Hayes Blackburn - Chapter Grand, Ruth Ann Hargett Fite ’97. told me, “You can forgive because you have been forgiven.” LaVerne Taylor Flanagan ’46 was the superlative leader of Alpha Gam. As I first remember her in 1974, she remarked about my new prized Adidas shoes. That I had worn them to the pledge dinner was not acceptable but those were not the words she used. Later when I returned to Auburn, LaVerne personally called me to say that I had been “chosen” to be the new Alumnae President. I felt so honored that I boasted to my mother about my new position! LaVerne later chose me for other volunteer positions in Auburn and I was heartened because to be chosen by LaVerne was a true measure of worth. Dorry and LaVerne were wise and honorable women and I learned so much from them. They were leaders in our community, in their churches and in Alpha Gamma Delta. They were amazing women! Who will stand and follow their lead in Alpha Gam? We miss them greatly.

A friend to everyone By Lauren Johnston Duncan ’01

D

orry Ann Hayes Johnston Blackburn is remembered as Miss Auburn 1949, the “Queen of the Alpha Gams,” and for knowing how to throw the most proper and beautiful party in all of East Alabama. I don’t think people loved her because of these accomplishments; I believe it’s because she loved people – she stumbled into them. She loved everyone she met, she really did, and people recognized her authenticity. To me, she was just my Deedee. And I thought the world of my Deedee. “God bless you for what you do,” Deedee said to a nurse as we walked into the hospital for surgery just a year ago. I started to sit down – but Deedee started Lauren Johnston Duncan ’01 and Dorry Ann Hayes Johnston Blackburn - Chapter Grand making her rounds! She hugged and spoke to everyone there. If she didn’t know you when she walked in – you had become best friends by the time she left. Watching her, I realized all of life was a party to her. She treated each patient and nurse as a VIP visiting her own home. She took the time to talk to people most of us would rush past. She spoke when she wasn’t spoken to. She complimented and lifted up the downtrodden. She was living LOVE. There are lots of groups of people Deedee loved and cared for, but the Alpha Gamma Deltas at Auburn University held a special place in her heart. She truly loved every single girl who pledged Alpha Gam. She fed them and taught Alpha Gam alumnae during an Attic Sale for the Alpha Gamma Delta Foundation benthem and was so proud of each one of efitting JDRF: Teresa Johnson Spivey ’83, Anne Farmer Lipscomb ’76, unknown, Dorry them. It was evident to me that she was Ann Hayes Blackburn - Chapter Grand, Gerri Duke Talley ’53. not just a member of Alpha Gam – she was a believer. And she made a believer out of me. I pledged in the Fall of 2001, and I just don’t think my Deedee could have been prouder. I am very grateful to have been blessed to share that experience with her.

Memories of LaVerne

LaVerne Taylor Flanagan, 1927-2012

P

ast Grand President LaVerne Taylor Flanagan entered Chapter Grand on January 2, 2012. A 1946 initiate of Gamma Delta ChapterAuburn University, LaVerne served on Grand Council (now called International Council) for 15 years, including seven years as Grand Vice President-Alumnae and eight years as Grand President. In addition to serving on Grand Council from 1976-1991, LaVerne previously volunteered as a National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) delegate, Foundation Trustee, International Panhellenic Committee member and Gamma Delta Alumnae Chapter President. LaVerne wore the Crescent of Epsilon Pi with Diamonds. Although more than 20 collegiate chapters were installed during her tenure as Grand President, LaVerne’s presidency was a challenging time for fraternities and sororities, as public opinion focused on social issues and student abuses. In her keynote address at the 1991 International Convention, LaVerne challenged every member and chapter to focus on academic standards, true sisterhood, values and ethics. She believed focusing on the Patti Guthrie Hill ’77, Kay Ivey ’64 and LaVerne Taylor Flanagan - Chapter Grand at the Fraternity’s Ritual was important for Alpha AGD 75th Anniversary celebration. Gamma Delta to be successful. “Our Ritual is the glue of continuity which binds us together through generations,” she said. “By living closer to our Ritual and our Purpose, by adhering to the vows we took at the time of our Initiation, by living up to the ideals and values given to us by our Founders, our lives would be enriched, our goals more easily reached, the negativism of the media and many universities and college faculty and administrators would be dispelled.”

Gamma Deltas share what they remember and loved most about LaVerne Taylor Flanagan ’46: Susan Lovett Speakman ’85, Alumnae President Although LaVerne knew that things such as manual procedures, styles and culture trends change over time, she always held Alpha Gam members to the highest standard, which kept us all on track. Each Recruitment she would have a front row seat at Skit Day practice to see what the chapter was presenting to potential new members. She was always proud of the Gamma Delta chapter! LaVerne inspired us in many ways…inspired us to keep our standards high, inspired us to be involved, inspired us to make a difference, inspired us to take action when necessary, inspired us to speak up for what is right, and in a sense to live out The Purpose the way she did! Fran Pierson Lyons ’84, Past Alumnae President What amazes me so about LaVerne is that she did all the many things that she did for Alpha Gamma Delta and the com(continued on page 15)

(Memories of LaVerne, from page 15) munity while she was taking care of a husband who had been paralyzed during service, working and rearing a son. I did not know that side of her until I had the opportunity of waiting in the airport with her after the last convention that she was able to go to. Anne Mims Adrian ’82, Past Chatterbox Editor What I remember the most is her presence, whether in the Chapter Room or at church. Dorinda Gunter Miller ’75, Alumnae Treasurer I still can’t believe LaVerne and Dorry Ann are in Heaven. Alpha Gam doesn’t seem the same without them. You want to know one thing I will always remember about LaVerne is that she KNEW which side to place your name tag…I am still not sure. Penny Saunders Eilert ’65 I served as Recording Secretary for Gamma Delta in the 1960s when Laverne was the Chapter Advisor – in the days when minutes had to be typed using carbon paper! There was no liquid paper and certainly this was before word processing. I can still remember going to LaVerne’s home to get her to sign the minutes after I had labored over them! Before signing, she carefully proofread them. Her high expectations, along with her gentle and sincere personality impressed me. In later years, I loved seeing Laverne at AGD conventions. While we were living in Memphis, she spent the night at our home. I loved sharing my family with her, even if just for one night. She will always have a special place in my heart!

Debby Brown Jurgensen ’69 She was a positive influence in so many of our lives! Debbie White Kranzusch ’74 She did indeed devote almost her entire life to Alpha Gam.

Michele Stapleton ’75 LaVerne gave so much to AGD and especially AGD at Auburn. She impacted so many of us. What a gift to have known her.

LaVerne’s legacy By Jackie Brannon Stutts ’77, International President

W

hen I was installed as International President at International Convention in 2008, LaVerne Taylor Flanagan, Past Grand President, was the installing officer. I mourn her passing today because not only was she a kindhearted and passionate sister, she was also one of the biggest influences on my Alpha Gamma Delta involvement after graduation. It all started after my Senior Rededication service at Gamma Delta-Auburn University. LaVerne pulled me aside to talk and mentioned to me that she had heard I was moving to the Florence area in North Alabama. A new chapter had recently colonized at the University of North Alabama. She asked me if I would be willing to help with this new chapter. And when LaVerne asked you to do something, you always answered ‘yes.’ LaVerne Taylor Flanagan - Chapter Grand, Alabama Lt. Gov.
