The Alpha Omicron Chapter of Virginia Alpha Delta Kappa held it's November meeting at the Central High School Library, where a program on Hugh Morrison's photographs was presented by John Adamson.

Members enjoyed the slide show of pictures of the people and places in Shenandoah County. Adamson has written a book about Morrison and is assisting in restoration and preservation of the photographs.

President Elizabeth Riffey reported on Founder's Day held in October, and members discussed fund raising ideas to fund the annual scholarship for a future teacher. A snowman-themed basket will be raffled off the first week in December, and the group will participate in Belk Days. A silent auction will be held in the spring.
