Rancocas Valley Alumnae Chapter Beginnings

On September 12, 1976, 20 visionary Delta women became the charter members of the Rancocas Valley Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. The chapter began with modest financial resources, far-sighted plans and dedicated optimism. Deltas from the New Jersey communities of Willingboro, Mt. Holly, Pemberton and Burlington began, what is now, an active, thriving local Delta chapter providing public service throughout the greater Burlington County area.
