The Texas Ladies Aside have performed in front of audiences exhibiting the grace and elegance of sidesaddle riding and the spirit and animation of our laterally gaited Peruvian Horses. From as far north as Calgary, Canada, to the National Show in Lima, Peru, to the Rose Bowl Parade in California, and Rodeo Houston, the Texas Ladies Aside have ridden and loved performing for audiences of all ages. Please check out website: texasladiesaside.com for more information. At the end of the parade, the participants will be able to park around the block belonging to the Chamber so we can get a good luck at them and also watch the Texas Ladies Aside perform.

The Delta Gamma Chapter House in College Station
College Station, TX- Delta Gamma Foundation will present a $100,000 check to the Texas A&M Foundation to establish the Delta Gamma Foundation Lectureship in Values and Ethics at Texas A&M University. The event is scheduled for Monday May 3, 2010 at 5:30 p.m. at the Delta Gamma Chapter House in College Station.
The Delta Gamma Foundation is contributing $50,000 from the Foundation funds to match the $50,000 that has been raised by the local Delta Gamma chapter. The $100,000 gift establishes the Delta Gamma Foundation Lectureship in Values and Ethics at Texas A&M University. This endowment will provide funds in perpetuity to host speakers in an event that will be open to the public. Some of the speakers who have been invited to speak at past Delta Gamma lectureships across the country are Queen Noor, Barbara Bush, Madeline Albright, Maya Angelou, President Gerald Ford, Colin Powell and Jeff Probst just to name a few.
Delta Gamma Lectureships in Values and Ethics were established in 1992 when Dr. Paul Martin and his wife, Dotty, Eta Chapter of Delta Gamma at Akron University, contributed three $50,000 grants to the Foundation in recognition of their 50th wedding anniversary. The Martins committed to providing additional funds for a total of fourteen lectureships. There are currently thirteen lectureships across the country and the lectureship at Texas A&M University will be the fourteenth and final one from their gift.
