REUNION FORMAL 2011

Monday, January 31st, 2011

100_0903

Brothers,

It’s that time of year again.  Soon, spring will arrive and the days will  get longer.  The temperatures, warmer.  Spring is the season of Rebirth and Renewal. It’s the time of the year when flowers burst forth from the ground and leaves return to our trees. It’s the time of year when younglings emerge from their hibernation sleep and take their first steps out into the world.  What better time then, for us to celebrate the Rebirth and Renewal of Lambda Chi Alpha- Lambda Iota Zeta.  To that end, we will be holding the 2nd Annual Alumni Reunion Formal this spring.

This year, we have so much to celebrate and be thankful for. We have finally achieved Colony Status after 3 long, hard years of work by High Pi Nick Wiesensel and the men of the interest group. It is because of their hard work and dedication that we are able to say proudly… We’re Back!  In addition to this phenomenal feat, we have also finally become able to reconnect with over 1/3 of our alumni base, and that number grows daily.  As we move forward in life, it’s important that we take a moment and look back at where we came from, to remember those moments in our life that made us the men we are today.  We should take the time to reflect on those bonds of brotherhood that were forged in Whitewater and designed to last a life time.

Join us as we prepare to initiate our newest brothers into the bond of Zeta Alpha Chi, and share with those who came after you and in doing so, relive your youth.  Reconnect with your brothers, old and new as Lambda Chi Alpha Lambda Iota Zeta moves toward the future.  Help us show the newest brothers in the bond the meaning of True Brotherhood.  LAMBDA CHI ALPHA……. NOT 4 YEARS, 4 LIFE.

Formal will be held in one of Geneva National Golf Resort’s beautiful and spacious Banquet halls. Dinner will be catered, and those in attendance will have their choice of Chicken or Pork Rack. Start time for the event is set for 5pm. More information on the night’s activities can be found below.

All-Fraternity Reunion Photos

Wednesday, August 13th, 2008

A great time was had by everyone in attendance at the 2008 Fraternity Reunion at the Great Wolf Lodge in the Wisconsin Dells on July 16, 2008.


From my count there were nearly 30 Chi Delta Rho, Delta Kappa and Lambda Chi Alpha Brothers from pre-1970 who attended the luncheon. The guys are looking forward to next year’s reunion and hope for an even bigger crowd and newer members to attend, as well!


Thanks to Brother Mike Skogstad who sent us these photos to share with everyone.

All-Alumni Meeting

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2008

A letter from Alumni Association Vice-President, Don Reinbold.

I am looking forward to seeing everyone [on Wednesday July 23rd]. Below is a link to where we will be meeting on Wednesday. I did try to accommodate the driving people have to do. We will meet at 6:00PM in Germantown, WI. And please watch your email on Wednesday for last minute changes if necessary. Please shoot me another email to confirm your attendance. [zax560@yahoo.com]

Points of Discussion:

1) *Alumni Mentors for Undergraduate Officers* – the Goal is to establish a relationship between the alumni and the undergraduate members, to keep stronger control and oversight, and to spread the responsibility of oversight across several members rather than a single Hi Pi. The assignments may change as we move forward – but we need a starting point and National has asked that this be settled by August so they are in place as we move forward.
If you want to review these positions you can go to www.lambdachi.org http://www.lambdachi.org – then choose the “undergraduate tab” and the “Officer Resources tab.” There you will find a list of officer positions and their individual responsibilities along with support materials.

2) *Discuss the house and the improvements coming for this fall*. I am pursuing the Home equity line of credit and looking for additional input and to formulate a plan for moving forward.

3) *Housing Corp Meeting / Alumni Association meeting*. There are a few business type discussions that have to take place as we reorganize for moving forward in regards to officer and operating plans for these two organizations. We have generally pushed thee two together into one pot – but as we move forward these two groups will have distinctly different rolls. I will appreciate your input.
