This was a quiet year for Beta Kappa chapter

at College of Notre Dame of Maryland,

following a very busy year in which we

celebrated our 60th anniversary. In the fall,

some of our members traveled to Philadelphia

to enjoy the Cleopatra exhibit at the

Franklin Institute.

We observed the Ides of March with

our annual Sister Mary Gratia Memorial

Lecture, which dealt with events in

Rome following that fateful day. Dr. Henry

Bender, on the faculty of St. Joseph’s University

in Philadelphia, gave an excellent

illustrated lecture entitled “Monuments

and Message in the Rome of Augustus.”

In April, we inducted three new members.

In conjunction with the induction

ceremony we attended a program at the

Johns Hopkins University entitled “From

Ashes to Monuments: Herculaneum and

Pompeii in the 18th Century.”

This was a great preparation for our summer

experience in Italy, when some of us

will be visiting Pompeii and Herculaneum.

Sara Priebe, our chapter prytanis, is

currently doing student teaching and planning

to complete her Master’s degree in

teaching at the end of this year.
