Alpha Xi Delta fraternity alumnae have formed an alumnae association on the north shore that is open to sorority sisters from St. Tammany and Tangipahoa parishes. Current members include those who attended colleges in Louisiana, Texas, Alabama and Georgia.

The women have held several socials since they began meeting a year ago, including a meeting with Alpha Xi Delta collegiates attending the University of New Orleans.

At the group’s May meeting, the Order of the Rose was bestowed upon those with 50 years as an Alpha Xi Delta: Agnes Belknap, Jane Ulzee and Gloria Weatherly.

The Order of the Pearl was bestowed upon Gloria Weatherly, who marked 60 years in the sorority. Belknap was initiated into the Gamma Upsilon chapter at the University of Georgia in 1964, Ulzee into the Delta Epsilon chapter at the University of New Orleans in 1964 and Weatherly at Washington University of St. Louis in 1948.

The alumnae association will hold its next gathering in July as the women plan their next year of social and service activities.
