The Phi Chapter of Alpha Delta Kappa celebrated their 50th anniversary on April 13. The initial celebration was planned for November 4, 2012, but had to be postponed because of the storm caused by Hurricane Sandy. The celebration teas took place at Graceland Inn. The Phi Chapter sisters wore vintage 1962 hats and gloves.
Phi Chapter was installed on November 10, 1962, by Kappa Chapter in Buckhannon. Several sisters from Kappa Chapter and many West Virginia state officers were able to attend. One sister from Kappa, Imogene Wimer, attended the tea. She was a member of Kappa and was there when Phi Chapter was installed.
