March 17 — Social Butterfly? What social organizations or groups did your mother or grandmother belong to? Sewing circle, church group, fraternal benefit society or lodge? Describe her role in the group.
My mother Betty Mae Peters Porter had always been a social person. She was a socialite in New York and I believe throughout her life in Los Angeles and San Diego. Betty was active in many organizations. She was an active member of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, San Diego Chapter for many years. She served in leadership positions as a member.
