March 18, 2017 (San Diego) - On Saturday, April 1st, members of Delta Kappa Gamma International (DKG), a professional society for women educators, will meet for brunch at the Handlery Hotel in Mission Valley for a "Spring Circles of Celebration" to honor local women who have given outstanding service to their profession, their community, or their chapter.

The East County Chapter of DKG has had a major role in in the society's 20 year old "Hands Across the Border", a fall event which raises funds and collects school supplies to help DKG members and their students in Tijuana and Ensenada.  East County's own Lakeside Middle School show choir, "Adrenaline", will provide the entertainment for the April 1st event.

Barbara Eisele, a retired East County teacher, says, says that DKG omotes the professional and personal growth of women educators.  Founded in 1929, DKG chapters are in all fifty states as well as 16 other countries.
Both working and retired teachers are welcome to join DKG!  In keeping with its mission, DKG stands for excellence in education with local members supporting classroom teachers in many ways throughout San Diego and Imperial Counties.  Beside its service, DKG offers opportunities for social activities and friendship.
