A Word from the President

This year's fall quarter has been long for us. We began our quarter with only 5 actives but luckily we managed to encourage five inactive brothers to join our active chapter. When rush came around, we managed to get over 80 interests to sign up! Twenty-six bids were given out and our Xi Pledge Class was initiated. So far we've hosted two blood and marrow drives, beating expectations on both, a cultural Dia de los Muertos event, and two brotherhood events, including a day at Boomer's and our white elephant gift exchange. We've faced several challenges along the way, but through hard work we've managed to keep our chapter moving forward. Today 16 little bros remain. So far they've done very well. Through two fundraisers, a raffle and a carne asada taco sale our little bros have been able to raise over 900 dollars! In addition, they also won 1st place in their Halloween contest, our third one in a row for our Chapter! Our little brothers have shown nothing but eagerness to join our great familia. They have grown a lot and I have no doubt they'll live up to carry on our Lambda Chapter (if and when).
