A birthday celebration in honor of our cousin and adopted sister Janet Roberts-Symonette was a night to be remembered. Janet was escorted into the beautiful fall-decorated ballroom by husband Anthony. Janet’s lovely daughter Antoinette proved to be a most fitting hostess and Aundre paid a beautiful tribute to “mother” as our Delta
sorors serenaded “Janet” with our sweetheart song. Happy birthday dear sister.
