Alpha Xi Delta brings Strawberry breakfast to Marshall

Marshall University the Alpha Xi Delta sorority is preparing for its 64th annual Strawberry Breakfast 7-11 a.m. Thursday for the Marshall community.
The event is presented by the Alpha Xi Delta mothers’ club.
The club will serve pancakes, eggs, sausage and biscuits with homemade strawberry butter. Chocolate covered strawberrys are being served as well.
Marshall student and Alpha Xi Delta member Alicia Grant said the fundraiser is unique to their chapter.
“It’s a tradition that has been going on for 64 years,” Grant said. “We take great pride in keeping up with the traditions that our alumni set for us.”
Alpha Xi Delta member and Vice President of Chapter Life Jacqueline Gentner agreed it was a unique and special tradition.
“It has been a tradition for so long and everyone in the community gets excited for it,” Gentner said. “It’s just a great way to get the Huntington community involved with Marshall and our sorority.”
Alpha Xi Delta planned the event in January, and Grant said the event keeps growing in size.
“We always have a really great turnout,” Grant said. “It has become a staple in the community, and people always get excited for our infamous strawberry butter as soon as April rolls around.”
Tickets are $4 for students and $5 for the public, and can be bought at the door on the day of the event.
