A few weeks ago I attended a “Meet The Greek” event sponsored by Lisa Bryant and Associates Fidelity Group, LBAFG.com. This networking event was held at Fusions Taster’s Choice, an Olive Oil & Vinegar Tasting Center in the Talleyville Shopping Center.
Lisa and I had met previously in 2013, at the The Delaware Today 1st Annual Fashion Awards where we connected instantly, so it was my pleasure to support her in this endeavor. As you can tell from these pictures, we both represented our individual Sororities well, she Zeta Phi Beta and I, Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc.
The owner of Fusions Taster’s Choice is Dolores Waddell, also a member of Zeta Phi Beta and an Olive Oil connoisseur extraordinaire! Her shop is beautifully decorated with walls of Ultra Premium Olive Oils, Balsamic Vinegars, Sea Salts, Spices and Jams all with their own distinct flavors. However, they accentuate the flavors of many foods and beverages as evidenced by the tasty treats prepared by Chef Bryan, including delicious Jerk Chicken Wontons.
Fusions Taster’s Choice not only sells products, they also host fabulous tastings featuring some of the world’s freshest oils and vinegars including a few new pairings such as Dark Chocolate Balsamic & Blood, Blackberry-Ginger Balsamic & Persian.
You can order any of these items online as well as other natural body lotions, gels and scrubs, so make sure to check out the website www.fusionstasterschoice.com then get an early start on your holiday gift shopping.
In addition to scrumptious Wontons prepared by Chef Bryan, there was also an awesome assortment of decadent desserts prepared by Chef Dana, owner of Desserts By Dana.
Michael J. Waller, proprietor of UniqueFreak, LLC had set up a large display of Greek Paraphernalia that he designs and custom creates. The sight of the paddles brought back memories of my college days, some good…some not so good, however, I pushed those thoughts aside then purchased an engraved Sigma Gamma Rho purse .
“Meet the Greek” was a great evening filled with food, fun and friends and I look forward to attending the next networking event sponsored by Lisa hopefully in the near future.
The goal of LBAFG is “To Change a Culture; Empowering a Generation to Change the Culture”. So if you or someone you know is a member of a Greek letter organization who wants to learn more about Lisa Bryant and Associates Fidelity Group workshops and seminars, check out her website www.LBAFG.com

Hello Friends and Happy Monday
The weekend’s weather definitely made it officially Fall with frost blanketing the grass and the sun’s rays piercing through the colorful Autumn leaves. Saturday morning we were up early to drive 30 minutes south down to Dover…my shortest commute of the week! Our youngest, a senior in High School who just shrugs his shoulders when asked where he wants to attend college, knows that it will be somewhere so we decided to start close to home.
I graduated from Del State with a BS degree in Elementary Education in 1983, and hubby with the same in 1981, (after transferring from the University of Delaware, so we would love for him to attend our Alma Mater.
Early before the 9:00 am start time, Memorial Hall Gymnasium was packed with parents, their sons and daughters attending the Fall Open House, all talking or listening to the faculty reps about the various programs offered at Delaware State University. Our son hasn’t decided on a major but was interested in Health & Public Policy as well as Hospitality & Tourism Management but we ended up taking the tour with the “Undecided” group.
Thinking that both his parents have a degree in Education, and neither one of us still teaches, he thinks he has plenty of time to declare a major, reminding me of the sitcom “A Different World“.
The opening program began with the singing of the National Anthem, followed by performances by the DSU Approaching Storm Marching Band and Cheerleaders. Welcome addresses from DSU President, Dr. Harry Williams, Dr. Alton Thompson and Mr. Atkins and finally by Mr. and Miss DSU.
We broke into groups according to Majors to walk the campus and to visit the Departmental buildings starting at the Library, then on to the EH Building, the gym, Radio Station, a Co-Ed Dormitory, and ending with lunch in the Dining Hall.
There were so many memories that came flooding back as hubby and I walked and talked about our days at Del State. We were pointing out various locations to our son, but you know he didn’t appear overly interested and just wanted to leave, but overall I think he enjoyed it. Once we got home he was very interested in checking his SAT scores, so, all in all, it was definitely worth it because he is at least thinking about attending DSU.
Delaware State University is an HBCU that was once named The State College for Colored Students. DSU was established on May 15, 1891, and is rich in African American history as evidenced throughout the campus.

Of course we couldn’t leave without a stop at my Sorority’s Plot – Sigma Gamma Rho
Our next college tour will be at Wesley College also in Dover on the 19th of November.
