2016 Homecoming Week Preview!
Homecoming Week is one of our favorite weeks of the year for many reasons but mostly because our beloved alumni come back to visit! Homecoming week also consists of the Kick-Off Bonfire, the talent show, the rope pull, the Yell competition, the Sing Competition, the cardboard regatta, the football game, and lastly the alumni BBQ at Kavanaugh’s Hilltop Tap.
The Greek Olympic Games starts off the week on Monday with gladiatorial contests including frisbee golf, combat, and chariot races. The following day, Tuesday, is the Kickoff Bonfire in the Lower Quad with Core’s Kevin Carton’s band, Minus6, performing. Next, some Delta Chi junior twins will be rocking the Augustana talent show at Centennial at 7pm on Wednesday. Sarah and Emily Fischer will be performing their musical talent with
their signature violin duo performance. Thursday evening is when Delta Chi’s finally get to show off our Yell routine that we have been diligently working on over the last month. Hannah Hart and Alexis Hill’s routine is sure to be a great show! Friday, Friday, Friday gotta sing on Friday! The Sing competition and Homecoming Court Coronation will be held in Centennial at 7pm. The Sing Chairs Kristina MacDonald, Taryn Woell, and Grace Cowan are exciting to showcase their hard work and routine. We have three Delta Chi’s nominated for Homecoming court!

Over the month of September, Delta Chi Theta is working hard to raise money for our service partner, the Quad City Animal Welfare Center. During September, Delta Chi’s will be partaking in training that will certify us to volunteer for the animal shelter. We will aid in completing the jobs that they have little time do like socializing with the animals and exercising the dogs on much needed walks.
Everyone who has or had a pet knows how they all have their own personalities and truly become part of the family. It often seems as though we do not deserve such loyal creatures who love us unconditionally. This is why Delta Chi Theta as a whole feels passionate towards this organization and fundraiser. Dogs, cats, and other pets are often not spayed or neutered leaving many animals left on the street. By donating and volunteering at shelters that offer homes to abandoned animals and offer discounted neutering/spaying, we can help save our furry friends. The Quad City Animal Welfare Center offers both of these services. They are currently just opened another facility where they still need money buy more equipment and supplies.
Specifically, the mission of the QCAWC is to operate as a shelter for homeless animals, to offer a spay and neuter program, and provide humane education. They are the only full-service, no-kill shelter serving the Quad-Cities area and operate solely on donations. This is where Delta Chi Theta comes in!
For our annual Fall Car Wash we will be donating all proceeds to QCAWC this year. New to the event this year is a dog wash alongside the car wash. Our goal is to get families and parents more involved by holding the event during Augustana’s Parent’s Weekend which is September 16-18th.
The Car & Dog Wash will be held in Augustana’s Centennial Parking Lot on Sunday, September 18th from 12:30-3pm. We invite you to come get your car washed by your daughter and her sisters. And don’t forget to bring your dog for a bath as well! The event is donation based, and there will be homemade dog treats for sale! Please help us reach our financial goal and help save more animals! Delta Chi Theta hopes to see you there! If you can’t come, please consider donating on our GoFundMe page!
