Our chapter strives to offer 1 all-chapter program or event each month, either purely social or geared to community service, fundraising, or networking. To suggest event ideas or join one of our programming committees, contact our VP Programming.

A list of upcoming events will arrive in your inbox on the 4th of every month via our Four on the 4th emails. Most chapter activities use Evite to extend invitations and share event details and updates. 

Special Interest Groups

As Theta sisters, we have a lot in common and sometimes we share deeper passions and enjoy getting together to explore them. That’s what our Special Interest Groups are all about and why they are so popular.

Involvement in these Special Interest Groups is a benefit of membership and therefore restricted to dues-paying members. Activities organized by these groups are announced through email or Evite by each Special Interest Group chair. Contact our VP Special Interests or the chair of the group for information about upcoming events.
Denver Alumnae Chapter book club special interest group

Book Club

Book Club meetings are held monthly all year long, with a mix of daytime and nighttime events. We read a variety of books, from bestsellers to classics, historical fiction and thrillers to nonfiction and biographies. Selections are chosen by the group and announced months in advance so you can plan ahead. Meeting announcements are sent via Evite so you can RSVP easily and arrange a carpool if desired. Contact the chairs to join the group or recommend a book for future consideration. 

Chairs: Nancy Ives and Gemma Smith

Games are informal and are scheduled at the convenience of the foursome. Players take turns hosting. In May, an annual luncheon for the entire group is held with awards for the top-scoring couples in each flight. Contact the chair if you are interested in joining the group.

Denver Alumnae Chapter supper club special interest group

Supper Club

The Supper Club is all about dining out with Theta friends. Most gatherings are held on weeknights, with locations at restaurants throughout the metro area, and each Theta pays for herself. Invitations are sent via Evite, and because space is often limited, reservations book up fast; the chair maintains a waiting list in case there are last-minute cancellations. A fall planning meeting determines the theme/calendar for each year. Contact the chair to join the group or participate in annual planning.

Chair: Lisa Hogan

Pansies and Puppies

An opportunity for Thetas to bond with each other and their pups! This group is launching this year (2023) and the Chair will determine the frequency and location(s) of gatherings. 

Chair: TBD

Moms and Tots

Spend time with other Theta moms and their young kids. This group is launching this year (2023) and the Chair will determine the frequency, type and location(s) of gatherings. 

Chair: TBD
Denver Alumnae Chapter lunch bunch special interest group

Third Thursday Lunch Bunch

This group started out as the Original Lunch Bunch and is making a comeback, but all Thetas are welcome and carpooling will be available to those that are interested.  We will select much-loved restaurants all over the metro area (but NOT downtown). We will insist they offer easy access, plentiful free parking, a quiet(er) dining space or private room, and separate checks (most meals will cost under $25 per person).
Chair: Leslie Franklin & Leigh Plue

Theta Nametags

The Denver Alumnae Chapter uses sturdy plastic nametags for member identification. By wearing your personalized nametag, you can enjoy a clean, professional look (no crumpled stick-on labels!) and faster check-in at events.

The black and gold nametags are magnetic and easy to use. Keep your nametag handy in your jewelry box, purse, or car so it’s always available whenever you need it. You will look smart and sophisticated wearing your custom nametag at every Theta event.
