Arrangements are being made to install a 14" X 36" X 4" Time Capsule in between the studs of the Old Gal at Homecoming 2016. It is to be opened when our mortgage is paid off. You will be hearing more about how to be involved in this project as The Homecoming Team's plan for Homecoming Weekend, Sept 29, 30 and Oct 1 are finalize latter this month. Please see below for more on Homecoming.
We are sorry to let you know that Brother Ron Sikorski recently passed. We do not know any details at this time. Ron was a fun, friendly brother who enjoyed the horse races. He was one of our house dog, PB's, best friends. The last we heard, Ron was still with his original employer, the IRS, and was living in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
The Anderson's Travel for ΑΣΦ Business
As part of the series of articles that we hope to post on our website about The Workings of the Beta Omicron Chapter, (please see the first in this series posted March 20, 2016) this article is going to take a side trip to San Diego. As a result of Tux (John) Anderson #864 and his wife, Jane's, visit to my adopted home town across the river from Tijuana, I learned a lot about our Chapter and how we participate with the National ΑΣΦ organization.
Many of you know that Tux has been an active on our Alumni Association BOD for many years and was a founding member of the House Corporation Board of Trusties. This list of his involvement at the Chapter level is long. For his work and dedication, Tux is a very well desired Delta Beta Xi Award recipient. However, I think just few know that Tux has been very active at the National ΑΣΦ level for over eight years including participating and training at the yearly National Convention for undergraduates. However, Tux has also been an active member on ΑΣΦ Foundation Board for 8 years and was recently asked joined their CLVEN Housing Board. One of the main reasons John was selected to serve on the Housing Board was because of his involvement with the development our new Old Gal.
Gordy Heminger, the President and Chief Executive Officer of ΑΣΦ says, "Brother Anderson comes to the meetings prepared, asks good questions, offers practical suggestions based on his experience in business and with the Beta Omicron Chapter and has such an even keeled disposition." So, we say thanks to Brother Andersen, his supporting, traveling wife, Jane, as well as the others in the Chapter that support our business of ΑΣΦ at the National level.
Back to the southern suburbs of LA. Making hay while the sun was shining in San Diego, Tux and Jane sent a day with my wife, Colleen, and I seeing the sites. They also arranged dinner at the iconic beach side restaurant, Jake's at the Beach, where we met up with locals Rick Powell # 867 and his wife Regan. (Rick is trying to fit Homecoming 2016 into his fall schedule.)
When you see Tux at Homecoming , ask him if he is active on two Boards for National because he enjoys the volunteer work, or is it because of the places they have their winter meetings 🙂
