During our fall 2015 work session, the actives and the alumni planted a cherry tree in the front yard next to our flag pole.
We are excited to finally see it bloom! Watching it grow has been fun for the actives and is a good representation of all our almuni effort and contribution
During the spring semester, we have elections for several of our Board of Directors positions, including Operations Director, Philanthropy Director, Social Directors, and Risk Manager. Congratulations to Greg Haegele* (OD), Joe Swanson (Philanthropy), Darien Freedman and Davis Clutter (External and internal Social) for winning their elections! The election for Risk Manager has been postponed til our next chapter meeting.
On Saturday, January 30th, the active brotherhood along with a dozen or so active alumni, the Purdue chapter of Triangle Fraternity received another face-lift. The master mind behind the worksession, Pat McCarthy pur86, came up with a number of renovations for the basement areas of the house, including the dining room, the recreation room, and the chapter room.
The chapter room was looking good, recently being repainted (Old Rose and Grey) by the PMS pledge class (pur12) but still needed some finishing touches. Current Alumni Board treasurer Jim Marshall pur65 took command of this project. Jim directed a number of actives with putting in a new baseboard, while Jim cut the pieces to length outside. The dining room project was lead by Greg McNamer pur09, changing the tray lighting by removing the existing bulbs and adding LED strips, which are white, blue, red, and green in color (red isn’t pictured below). The dining room was also repainted and the wainscot was re-stained. In the recreation room, Dr. Mark Bowman pur71 and Jeff Ott pur91 led replacing the light ballasts, replacing broken ones and also updating the rest to current standards. Brian Jarman pur01, Greg Moss pur07, and Yancy Wilcoxon pur86 were also leaders in the dining room project.
The actives had a great time working with almuni to help improve our chapter home! We’ll be having another work session for the Fall 2015 semester, if you are interested, please contact Mitchell Hanberg at firstname.lastname@example.org with any ideas or questions!
Congratulations to brother Darien Freedman, who was just elected as our External Social Director! Darien has big plans for expanding our social relations with other greek houses, along with developing a program to take care of our party list/attendance.
