Pi Day March 14
Pi (3.14) Day is an annual celebration of the mathematical circle constant π=3.14159…. which represents half the circumference of a circle. Pi Day is observed on March 14 since 3, 1, and 4 are the first three significant digits of π. For Delaware Girls Circles, Pi Day is our day of fundraising and celebration. We partner with a local bakery to host a pie fundraiser, typically starting at 1:59pm and running for 3 days. We throw a pie themed party for each of the circles, eat pie and drink tea. We also celebrate pi day by eating other circular foods like pizza, donuts and pineapple rings. This fundraiser is an opportunity to get the ball rolling for the new year before completing the orbit of the current DGC.
Tau Day June 28
Tau (6.28) Day is an annual celebration of the circle constant τ=6.283185…, which is observed on June 28 since 6, 2, 8 are the first three significant digits of τ. This describes one complete turn of a circle. This is also the day that DGC celebrates Points who have completed a round of the DGC clubs as well as a year of Tangency. We recognize significant academic accomplishments, successful Points of Tangency and Points who have become Hoops A Fire, the DGC Point who graduates on time!
