Random Convention Topics: The Aglaia

At the sisterhood lunch on Thursday, we sat down at the table and there was this weird magnet on our table. I was quite confused and made a few snarky comments about how ugly it was and WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?!?!. (Shocker, who would have thought?!) Well, when Kris and Peggy King (National Ritual Chairman) explained that they had been on a trip to Italy together and Peggy had discovered that this painting that she always loved was actually a picture of Greek goddesses, and one of them was named "Aglaia"!  And actually, in the picture the woman named Aglaia was wearing a quatrafoil shaped pendant necklace....HOW COOL!??!?! We'll never know if our founding sisters knew this and based our emblem on this photo or not. But pretty cool to ponder!

Its hard to tell in this picture, but Aglaia is the one on the left and her necklace is quatrafoil shaped!!

Just thought I'd share with you in case you ever wondered (like me!) where our magazine got its name :)
