The Danbury area (Iota) chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma (DKG), the International Society for Key Women Educators, met recently. Their special guest for the evening was Addie, the comfort dog sponsored by the Immanuel Lutheran Church of Danbury. One of her handlers, Lois Weiss of Danbury, is a member of DKG. She shared how Addie and her sister Maggie continue to comfort members of the Sandy Hook community, as well as visiting other schools and nursing homes. For more information about the comfort dog program see www.lutheranchurchcharities.org.  Another DKG member, Jacqui Farrell, discussed her work with Literacy Volunteers on the Green.  Over 160 volunteers offer literacy instruction and more to people in Northern Fairfield county and all of Litchfield county.  To learn more about this organization visit www.lvg-ct.org. The Iota chapter also held a fundraising raffle to support their scholarship fund for local high school graduates who are pursuing degrees in education. Area schools will be receiving application information after the first of the year.
