Whitewater Homecoming 2007

Whitewater WarhawksFrom what I can tell, the theme of Homecoming 2007 is “Our Favorite Combo”.
…and I have no idea what that relates to.

Events for Whitewater Homecoming 2007:
Parade 10am – Main Street
Football Game vs. UW-Oshkosh 1pm – Perkins Stadium
A complete list is available by clicking here.

The Alumni Association is still putting together plans for a Homecoming gathering. If you are interested in attending, please reply to this post (by clicking COMMENTS) and comment with your name and what your plans are for the weekend. Any gathering at the House is still under review, as we need to clear that with the tennants who are currently living there (as they are not Lambda Chi’s).

Plans so far include:
– Running a supportive advertisement in the Royal Purple from the Lambda Chi Alpha Alumni Association
– Showing our spirit by attending the Parade and Game wearing Lambda Chi Alpha letters

Keep checking the website (and emails) for updates.

Our local history

Friday, September 14th, 2007

Chi Delta Rho 1939 HouseDid you know that Lambda Chi Alpha is the 2nd oldest Fraternal organization in Whitewater? Only surpassed by Phi Chi Epsilon, Lambda Chi Alpha has roots as a Fraternal organization that goes back to 1929!

I have begun to compile our local history of an organization in Whitewater. Currently, I have all entries from Whitewater’s Official Yearbook, The Minneiska, from 1932-1990. This details the history of our organization, begining with a Fraternity known as Beta Kappa Nu, to Chi Delta Rho, to Delta Kappa, back to Chi Delta Rho and finally becoming Lambda Chi Alpha.

As I put together a complete history and map out all of the houses our Fraternity(s) have used throughout the years, I ask all of you to contribute any information you have to this effort. I am specifically looking for documents, photographs and other items that would prove useful in this documentation.

If you have materials or stories you would like to share and add to our local history, email me eChopper…remove the parens from the email address. If you do not have means to scan these documents to email, let me know and I will make arrangements to get the from/to you in an orderly fashion.
