There are currently 18 members of the alumnae group. Four council members were present to witness Wyndham's proclamation, including Carolyn Houck, Geraldine Ullery, Sue Jones and Martha Whitaker. Two other council members, Evelyn Greenwood and Jeanne Lash, were unable to attend.

Delta Theta Tau was founded in Muncie, Ind., in 1903. The alumnae board was founded in 1937. It is a national organization that works to promote charity and philanthropy work at the national, provinces and local levels.

Delta Theta Tau currently works with several Clay County organizations including the Humane Shelter, Crisis Pregnancy Center, Brazil Parks Association and the Brazil Public Library among many others.

Delta Theta Tau gives it's members the opportunity to "better communities they live in, as well as provide lasting friendships and a spirit of true sisterhood among members."
