Celebrating our Unity and Sisterhood in the F.A.B.U.L.O.U.S. JOURNAL Winter 2017 s29 53rd National Convention REGIONAL COVERAGE In a joyous and festive entrance, each member of the dais donned red gloves and a Farwest scarf as they all glided into the Farwest Regional Sisterhood Luncheon at the 53rd National Convention in Las Vegas. The theme of unity permeated the ballroom, and an air of love saturated the atmosphere. As envisioned by the fabulous Farwest Regional Director, Lydia Cincore Templeton, Esq., the luncheon epitomized sisterhood, inclusivity and love. With great attention to detail, each table’s centerpiece held the name of a chapter, and a past regional director or past regional representative. Pictures of regional directors were also displayed prominently throughout the room. “Tomorrow is not promised, so I want to ensure that everyone who worked to make this luncheon a success feels appreciated. From the wait staff to each soror who contributed to this event, I thank you and you are loved,” said Soror Templeton. Farwest Regional Representative Taryn Frazier added, “It’s been a pleasure working with each facilitator and collegiate chapter this year. I look forward to another productive year.” A touching tribute was paid to 17th National President Mona Humphries Bailey, the “jewel” of the Farwest Region. Upon entry, each member was given a sign that read, “We Love You Soror Mona Bailey.” All in attendance held up the sign as a greeting, and a prayer was offered for her in her absence. The inaugural Director’s Visionary Award was given to Mary Jones for her dedication and commitment to coordinating the Woods Bailey Leadership Institute for the region. Soror Jones exemplifies the Farwest Region’s theme of “One Sisterhood, One Bond, United for Impact.” True to Soror Templeton’s joyful spirit, the members of the dais exited the assembly dancing to the song “Ain’t No Stopping Us Now.” Without a doubt each soror left inspired to do the work of Delta in the coming sorority year. s Farwest Region BY RACHELLE HOLLIE GUILLORY Farwest Regional Director Lydia Cincore-Templeton welcomes delegates to the Farwest Regional Luncheon Aug. 6, 2017.
