Hammond Mayor Thomas M. McDermott, Jr. met with members of the Hammond Gamma Nu Chapter of Tri Kappa today to proclaim February 16 – 22, 2019 as Tri Kappa Week.

Tri Kappa is a philanthropic organization located solely within the State of Indiana with the objective of bringing women into close, unselfish relationships for the promotion of charity, culture and education.

During Tri Kappa Week, the Hammond Gamma Nu chapter members will be supporting the Hammond Public Library’s Reads Program, 19th Annual Essay contest along with collecting non-perishable goods for the Hammond Community Services Food Pantry.

“I am pleased to proclaim this Tri Kappa Week”, stated Mayor McDermott.  “The Hammond Gamma Nu chapter as well as the entire organization work altruistically for not only Hammond but all of Indiana.”
