ANNOUNCEMENTS

Due to a lack of interest, tomorrow night's dinner has been cancelled  

YITB

We are initiating a feature on the website for the purpose of offering a place for either Brothers or sons/grandsons of this Chapter to present their resume or post a job opportunity for review and consideration. We ask that you use good, professional judgement when presenting your resume or job description. Just use the Post Announcement tab under Member Functions. That will alert the Website Administrator of the pending document and after review will be published in the form of an email thread under the Employment Bulletin Board. The information will not be seen on the website homepage. We do ask that if the position is filled please advise the website administrator so that he can remove that entry. There will be a few glitches so please bear with us. In these most difficult times our motto, “We enjoy life by the help and society of others,” is the one true act we can all rally around.

I don't think they're on the Angelina.

When I was initiated into Phi Delta Theta, it was one of the proudest days of my life surpassed only by marriage to my lovely wife and the births of my children. Though I did not realize its impact on my life at the time, I can now look back with great pride knowing how much I have benefited from being a Texas Eta Phi. I have enjoyed lifelong friendships with the Brothers of my college years and many others I have met along the way. I look forward to any opportunity to spend time with them, whether it be sharing a meal, quaffing a stein or just visiting on the phone. Had there not been a Chapter of Phi Delta Theta at SFA, I am left to ponder what differences that absence might have had on my life? I am confident many of you share that feeling. With everyone's help future undergraduates can have the same opportunity as we have enjoyed. While the Chapter has been suspended for a time, I am confident we will be reinstated. The fundraising goal to save the Chapter House is within our grasp. Don't be deterred from contributing because you think it requires a large contribution. More than 1,000 men have been initiated as members of Phi Delta Theta while at SFA. If each of those Brothers gave $125 we'd meet our goal. Or, if half of those Brothers contributed $250, the target would be reached.

 

As Chris Wren and Chris Leonard both eloquently reminded us from our Phikeia training:

 

"To do what ought to be done but would not have been done unless I did it, I thought to be my duty". - Robert Morrison

 

and from the last line of the Phikeia Oath:

"...not only, not less, but greater than it was transmitted to me."

 

Please thoughtfully consider making a donation.

 

Yours in the Bond,

This timely announcment is going out to all you homebound Brothers who have run out of things to do. Now you have the opportunity to look through all your old pics and memrobilia and either send it all to me or try and scan and upload yourself. What I would really like to have in our archives is a good, clear scan of every composite in the Chapter's history. Surely out of a 1000 Bond #'s we can wrestle up one from each year. I'll help in anyway to make this a reality.

Brother Robert Crank's #387 addition of his 1981 chapter composite to his profile is an example of what needs to be in our secured memorabilia. Unfortunately, over time so many of these cherished composites have vanished and are lost for good. Looking at our current roster, we have representatives from every decade that could submit a composite for each year of our existence. I would like to start collecting the composites and add them to our Photos and Memorabilia cache. For the best results, I need a scanned photo at high resolution. When I mean HD, I mean you take it to one of the office supplies that has a large flatbed scanner that can produce a 50-megapixel photo with 8688 x 5792 resolution. This allows us to reproduce the photo into a 30 x 20 frame. We'll never do this, but it makes an incredibly clear master copy. The only alternative is to deconstruct Stone Fort annuals, which I know no one will want to do.  This is another request that requires all your help.

In light of all that is going on with the Texas Eta Chapter, I am once again taking the opportunity to ask all of you who are active on this website to please reach out to those Brothers who have not activated their profile and encourage them to join us. We have developed a wonderful repository for our Chapter memories, as well as resurrected friendships and we can't stop now. We have roughly a third of the Brothers who signed the Bond active on this website. The holidays allow us all the chance to make a twofold call to a Brother. I would greatly appreciate all of you taking the time to look for photos and memorabilia pertinent to the Chapter and send it all to me. Do worry about trying to scan and forward. I'll do it for you and consider it a privilege.

YITB,

We have created this website for the purpose of consolidating our resources and to improve communications with both actives and alumni. Please be advised that this site is not associated with our national organization and that we are by no means trying to disconnect from headquarters. Our objective is to collect contact information on all Brothers who have been associated with the Texas Eta Chapter only. It is password protected for that reason and no information will ever be shared with any outside concern. If we were to try to work off our existing chapter role spreadsheet, of the 900 names listed, we would have less than 600 entries with relatively up to date contact information. We would appreciate all of you taking time to update your profile by clicking on the blue "JOIN HERE", and make sure you include your bond number after your last name in the detail section of your profile. It is our hope that this website becomes the link to many of you rekindling old friendships and our open invitation to join us for many future events.

YITB,

Joel Moore #334
