Founder’s Day Weekend…The “Red” Celebrates with the Ladies of the “Blue Family”


This weekend I joined my college friends for a celebratory weekend.  It was also the weekend of my sorority’s, Delta Sigma Theta, Inc. (www.deltasigmatheta.org ), 99th Founder’s Day.  Instead of joining the rest of my sorors, I supported my longtime friend, who is a Zeta, and attended her sorority’s event.

I arrived on a Friday, the 13th (Ha!), at the Towneplace Suites, Chesapeake, VA(www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/orftc-towneplace-suites-chespeake ).  My girlfriend from NJ had two adjoining studio suites.  For only two people, it was more than enough room.  The room was clean, with comfortable beds, a full kitchen (one for each room), and flat screen televisions.  The property also has an outdoor pool and a small fitness room.  The website made it appear larger, with mirrors in the room.  The studio, 1, or 2 bedroom suites begin at a nightly rate of $75 a night.  The staffs were all friendly and accommodating, despite not being able to provide a door stopper for the middle doors (…but we improvised).  I would return to this property again.

Saturday morning my group of friends enjoyed “in-room” massages provided by Majestic Massages by Samuel (757)372-3010.  We all were treated to an introductory 30 minute massage.  I had a Deep Tissue Massage.  Man, I wish that I had more time.  It was a GREAT way to relax before the event.  “Sam” offers various types of massages along with “Candling”.  Candling  is an alternative medicine practice claimed to improve general health and well-being by lighting one end of a hollow candle and placing the other end in the ear canal. If you are ever in Virginia, check him out.  He is very knowledgable of his craft.  He is also open to traveling for events.

Before the event we had our pictures taken by the Picture People ( www.picturepeople.com ) in the Greenbrier Mall in Chesapeake, VA.  They do photography for children, couples, families, and other groups.  We had a basic black background due to our varying skins tones and dress choices.  They offer different promotions and packages to chose from.  Courtney was our photographer that evening.  She was extremely creative with our poses and pleasant with her service.  Ask for Courtney whenever you chose this location for your photography needs.

On the evening of January 14th, my girlfriends and I attended the Blue and White Ball.  The event was hosted by the Ladies of Zeta Phi Beta, Inc.- Chi Omicron Zeta Chapter(www.zphib1920.org ).  The event took place at the Chesapeake Conference Center (www.chesapeakeconference.com).  The dinner included salad (2 choices of dressing), chicken with stuffing, some type of flavored rice(a great compliment to the chicken), green beans, and caramel apple pie or cheese cake with strawberry topping.  There was also unsweetened ice tea and a cash bar to wet your whistle.  The music was provided by DJ Precise.  He did a good job catering to the different age levels that attended the function.  I definitely enjoyed the evening with the Ladies of Chi Omicron Zeta.  They hosted a beautiful event on the weekend of their Founder’s Day.  Thank You, for the Southern Comfort.

…Until our next Outting…Smooches!
