Chapter members participated in the AACM African American Cultural & Historical Museum of Washtenaw County's Underground Railroad Tour. Members traveled the Michigan Underground Railroad Tour, with routes that run-away slaves followed and were maintained by Abolitionists to reach free territory. Stations provided shelter along the route and were about 16 miles apart. Pictured right, one of the last stops that was visited, the original home of the Starkweathers, rumored abolitionists. With the help of the McCoy’s (their black neighbors) it is believed that they helped over 1000 fugitives by hiding them in a barn in the back of this house. The “Real McCoy” deemed from Elijah McCoy who invented the continuous oiling tool for steam machines. Elijah was the son of the McCoy’s who lived behind Starkweather estate.
Delta Psi Omega Movie Night! Chapter members were greeted with Delta Psi Omega Movie tickets, Garrets popcorn, and concession like snacks, pizza and hot dogs. After a fun but challenging game of movie trivia won by Catrina, members enjoyed watching the movie Joy with Jennifer Lawson, Bradly Cooper and Robert De Niro.
March we showered our 50 and 25 year members by honoring them at the chapter meeting. In May, we celebrated all members who are family members and are active in the chapter. In August, we kept cool in the water at the Delta Psi Omega Pool Party.
