January 2013 Meeting Highlights

Published on 1/18/2013

It was yet another business-filled ASU DeKalb meeting on Saturday-January 12, 2013.


MLKingJr Parade!

The chapter is participating in the 2013 Martin Luther King Jr Parade on Monday, January 21.

It's not in Stone Mountain this year, but rather it starts at Ray of Hope Church on Highway 155 in Decatur. Please arrive no-later than 10:30am.


Following the parade, please join us at Piccadilly (South Dekalb Mall) for lunch at 2pm (U pay).
Chapter President Tamara Nelson says, "What a fun-filled way to celebrate the King Holiday and the Inauguration for those of us who cannot make it to DC?"


Battle of the Bands!

Here we go again! Honda Battle of the Bands is on January 26 at the Georgia Dome. PR Committee Chair Maria Boynton says, "This is by far the largest fan group we've ever had. We're on the lower level with hundreds of ASU fans this year."


For those that ordered tickets, if you haven't received them by Tuesday, January 22, please call 404-862-2345. Also, the Dome doors will open at 1:30pm.
