WEIRTON - The members of Alpha Delta Kappa, Fidelis Gamma Chapter, met on July 3, 2014, at Williams Country Club in Weirton with 11 members and one guest present.
Carolyn Allison, President, welcomed guest Sara Evans and lit the "Memory Candle" for those members who were unable to attend.
The room was elegantly decorated in the patriotic theme. Each member wore red, white, and blue to foster the American holiday. The members celebrated a Salute to America with a reading from Ruth Fuller, "The Stars and Stripes Spell Freedom," followed by a group pledge to the American Flag. Liz Pugh read "Our Flag Flies High," and Carol Hendon read "One Nation Under God". In closing, the members sang "God Bless America."
