 Alpha Zetas to Mark 100th Anniversary

January 16, 2008 - Alpha Zeta chapter of Kappa Kappa Kappa sorority in Knightstown recently announced plans for the chapter’s 100th birthday celebration in March. A “tea and celebration” will take place Saturday, March 15, from 2-4 p.m. at Friends Church in Spiceland. Invitations have been sent to state council officials, resident inactive members and current and past province officers. Event Chairman Janet Linch said committees are working and everything is coming together for an afternoon of celebration and remembrance.

Charter members of Alpha Zeta were Edna Carroll, Lillian Edna Wink, Mary Newby, Ruby Copper, Ada Binford, Lucile Garritson, Erma Cary, Mary Wagoner and Ruth Zion. These women petitioned the council, saying, “we, the undersigned, respectfully request that the Kappa Kappa Kappa Sorority grant us a charter of their sorority with all right and privileges pertaining thereto.” The charter was granted and the chapter was installed March 27, 1908.

The first officers of the sorority were President Edna Carroll, Vice President Ruby Copper, Recording Secretary Ruby Zion, Corresponding Secretary Mary Wagoner and Treasurer Edna Wink. Several prominent Knightstown citizens vouched for the girls and their character. Some of those individuals were Senator L.P. Newby, Ed B. Williams, Mrs. Erma B. Bales, A.B. Williamson, Rev. Fred F. Thornburg, Dr. O.E. Holloway and Prof. R.M. Elrod. From that point on, members of the Knightstown community have been the recipients of many years of community service, charitable giving and cultural exposure. Alpha Zeta chapter of Kappa Kappa Kappa has become a viable force of action and generosity, according to the group’s members.

“The chapter is most appreciative of the support it has received over the years from the community and looks forward to the next 100 years providing educational, cultural and philanthropic opportunities when needed,” the sorority said.
