On Friday May 26 the Iota Chapter of The National German Honor Society, Delta Phi Alpha, welcomed seven new members. Members from the previous year were on hand to welcome the new inductees and to decorate Maibäume (May Poles)—somewhat later than the traditional date of May 1st, but Spring also came later this year. Additionally, member Niki Sohnly had Delta Phi Alpha pencils made for the occasion. Many thanks to all those involved! Prospective members of Delta Phi Alpha can check out the national website for more information (http://deltaphialpha.org) and write to chapter advisor Jason Groves (firstname.lastname@example.org) to be added to the mailing list.
