Some of the restaurants on Restaurant.com are: Agave Azule, La Rumba, Ray's ESG, The Crown and Goose, La Costa, Baker Peters, and a few others.

My goal as President of the Alumnae Chapter is to grow and strengthen the Knoxville chapter by listening to what the members are looking for in an alumnae association. The Kappa Delta websites says that "Kappa Delta alumnae associations provide a fun and flexible way to connect with amazing Kappa Delta women in your community, take part in innovative projects, and participate in meaningful service to others." During our monthy outings we provide an opportunity to meet and socialize with old and new friends and also conduct a short business meeting. The busines issues we discuss range from UT's local chapter to ways we can help the community.
Based on feedback from the survey at our Christmas Party will be moving our meetings to the third Tuesday of each month at 6 o'clock and will continue to have our meetings be hosted in a member's home or at a local restaraunt.
A full calendar of events will be coming soon, but for the month of February we will be meeting at Litton's on February 17th at 6:00 (an evite has been sent out).
Other news to make you aware of:
*We still need to fill the positions of Vice President, Membership, Shamrock and Collegiate Relations
*We are on Facebook and can be found by searching for: Knoxville Kappa Delta Alumnae Chapter
*Annual dues are $35 and can be brought to a meeting or mailed to Jeanine Brown @ 7700 Gleason Drive 39E Knoxville, TN 37919
I look forward to working with all of you during 2009. Any questions, comments, ideas or concerns you might have please email me directly @ firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be happy to listen, answer or address them. If you have another email address that you prefer we use please respond back to this email with that information. Also, please pass this on to any sisiters you know of in the area that are not geeting this email, we will be happy to include them if they will update us with their contact information. See you all at Litton's!

Plans are moving along to open the new Alpha Epsilon chapter house in 2010 and we are pleased to announce that we are halfway to our goal of one million dollars raised for a chapter house on the campus of the University of Tennessee. A HUGE thank you to all who have made our progress possible. But we still need your help!!
We had a fabulous fall formal recruitment and pledged 52 wonderful new members! We could not be happier with the new member class this year.
There are a number of ways that you can show your support for Alpha Epsilon. Please choose what fits your circumstance best. We need every Alpha Epsilon’s support!
First and foremost, Alpha Epsilon still needs donations towards our capital campaign. UT has told us it cannot break ground for our house until we have one million dollars raised or pledged. There are still some naming opportunities available, so don’t delay. To access the tax-deductible donation form and see details on the capital campaign and its progress, please click this link:http://web.utk.edu/~kdaot/assets/house.html
Secondly, Kappa Delta Sorority and QSP magazine agency have provided a great opportunity for Alpha Epsilons and their friends and family to support the housing efforts with money that they already are spending on magazine subscriptions. Sound too good to be true? It is not!
All you have to do is click on this link below (or at the top of this blog) to renew magazines that you are already buying and nearly half of the subscription price will go directly to Alpha Epsilon House Corporation to be used in the new chapter house. Of course, you can purchase new subscriptions as well! http://www.qsp.com/Store/Index.aspx?FAccountId=425901305&SiteId=1&aip=true
As an added bonus, clicking on this link will take you to a drawing of the proposed Sorority Village site plan and you can see exactly where Kappa Delta is in the circle. We are thrilled with our choice and working hard with the architects to situate the house on the lot so it showcases the beauty that Kappa Delta brings to our daily lives. Keep this link as we will be posting further photos as we progress towards our dream come true of a beautiful house for Alpha Epsilon at the University of Tennessee.
This magazine opportunity is just one of the many ways you can support Alpha Epsilon through your generosity. Please forward this link to family and friends and ask them to renew or purchase their magazines through this site, you don’t have to be an Alpha Epsilon to purchase. Nearly half of the proceeds of all magazine purchases go to Alpha Epsilon (instead of all to the publisher) and it adds up. Research shows that the average household spends $200 a year on magazine subscriptions. Just think if all Alpha Epsilons renewed their magazines through this site to benefit the Alpha Epsilon house?
The holiday season is fast approaching and magazine subscriptions make great gifts. This is truly the gift that gives twice. You can also purchase beautiful commemorative Christmas ornaments that will benefit the house as well, please contact Missy Griffin at email@example.com. The ornament is a brass door with KD aboveit to signify the new house and sells for $75.
Finally, we are still in need of pledge class chairs to coordinate participation from your pledge class. This is a great way to catch up and re-connect with those sisters who are special to you while helping Alpha Epsilon. We need chairs for the following years:1994, 1992, 1990, 1989, 1986, 1978 and 1969-1966.Please reply to this e-mail if you are interested.
Thank you for your kind assistance in making our dream come true!

Ashley's address is:
704 Sedgley Drive Knoxville, TN 37922
From the east on Kingston Pike, turn left at traffic light onto S. Peters/Ebenezer (Walgreen's on the corner) From the west on Kingston Pike, turn right at traffic light onto S. Peters/Ebenezer (Baker Peters Jazz Club and gas station on the corner)
Continue to the top of the hill and at the first traffic light, turn Right onto George Williams (La Petit Academy will be on your right)
Braddock's Place is the FIRST neighborhood almost immediately on your left just past Mountain View apartments. It is easy to miss and if you see West Valley Middle School, then you have gone too far. :)
Turn LEFT into the neighborhood and turn right onto Sedgley Drive. This is a circle and her house is at the back of the circle - 704 Sedgley Drive.
Ashley will probably pick up a couple of pizzas from Calhoun's to cut into smaller pieces for the meeting and if ladies can just bring some sides, then we should be all set.
Look forward to seeing everyone next month!
