The PDI 2006 charities were
Operation Homefront and the Fisher House. Operation Homefront provides
assistance with day to day issues for military families so that deployed service
members are not preoccupied by the crisis at home and can focus on the War
Against Terrorism. The Fisher House is a home away from home for families
of patients receiving medical care at major military and VA medical centers.

Chapter Fair presented a beach-side carnival
atmosphere! There was lots of boardwalk carnival style games, a fortune
teller, corn dogs, prizes, and even a dunk tank! A fun time for everyone,
and we got to throw a couple of balls at someone we'd like to dunk!
