It is about a three plus hour drive; we got there a little after noon. Kathleen's initiation was to be at 2:00. There were 45 pledges going through the ceremony and they had broken it into nine groups/ five each. Marti and I got there about 1:30 and got to look around at all the gift boxes the Big Sisters had made up full of all kinds of gifts for their Little Sisters.
Then we were escorted into the meeting room, secret knock, secret handshake and all!! We had been requested to wear all white, as all the girls...actives and pledges were dressed. We both had white slacks, white shirts and white shoes! As we wandered around town before going to the sorority house, we thought of all kinds of professions we could serve in our "uniforms"! From nurses to ice cream truck drivers!
