— The members of the Chantilly-based Fairfax County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority (FCAC DST), Inc., a public service organization, are participating in the sorority’s 100th Founders Day celebration. A series of special events will take place throughout 2013. The Centennial Celebration kicked off on Jan. 1 with a red carpet Hollywood Gala in Hollywood, Calif. and a float in the Rose Bowl parade. Approximately 14,000 members of the sorority descended on the nation’s capital and home to the sorority’s national headquarters for the official Founders Day activities Jan. 11-13. The schedule included 22 impact service projects in the D.C. metropolitan area and a Centennial Honors Gala. The celebration will continue throughout the year with a reenactment of the 1913 Women’s Suffrage March in Washington, D.C. on March 3 and will conclude with the sorority’s 51st National Convention in July 2013.
