Good afternoon everyone,
This has been a very eventful week for EU.
We had a great weekend at the Northern Division Conference. The story of that weekend was told by Shawn Selby here on our Blog. I hope that you all checked that out. A very well written article I think.
Then just after that, on Feb. 20th to be exact, the Chapter Web site was totally upgraded. Adam Hopkins (the Chapter webmaster) did a great job, please go check it out. I think you will be as impressed as I was.
There is one section of the site that I would like to bring to your attention. It is under the Alumni section of the site, the Alumni Database Form, The nice thing about this form, is that it allows the Alumni to keep the Chapter (and me!) updated about new email addresses, snail-mail addresses, life changes, etc.
PLUS (and this is important), there is a place for you to let the Chapter know who your Big Brother and Little Brothers were. This will allow the Undergrads to update and correct the errors that are in the Big Brother Board at the chapter. We are aware that there are some errors there, please help us get them corrected. Aside from that, I hope that you will go check out the new site, because there has been a lot of work put into the upgrade.
While Hops was working on the Web site upgrade (without letting me know! So much for being on the "inside"), I was bugging him for some help on the address list. And, as usual, he didn't let me down. He went through and put an asterick next to all of the Chapter presidents’ names. I know it isn't much, but I thought that it would be nice to honor those of us who served as president. Did you know that there were two who served two years? I had forgotten. Matt Dole, of course, was one. Do you know who was the other? Check out the address book and find out.
One thing that was a bit disheartening, there are several past presidents that don't have an address on file. I think that we need to be in contact with all of them. Check out the address book and help find the missing for us. Thanks for that.
I still have no news to report about the ritual equipment fundraiser. But I still have to ask that you consider making a donation so we can replace the worn out equipment. Send your checks to the Crescent Colony of Marietta Inc., c/o Bob Ferguson, 507 Wooster St., Marietta, Ohio 45750. Make a note on your check that it is for ritual equipment. Thank you. This is the last request until I get some information to pass along to you.
I have some new addresses to pass along to you and, as usual, some names I need some help with. So let's get started.
Trent Leupp and Jay Read both sent in new email address. I’ve removed them from this post for privacy, but they are available in Alumni section of the Chapter Web site.
Tom Tintera sent me a copy of a letter sent written in 1967. It may be the first effort in a Chapter mailing. Hops and Shawn will try to figure out how to get it posted here on the Blog.
Rick,The names I need help on are below:
I came across this newsletter the other day. I am directly to the right of the left pillar. I thought you would enjoy this historical document.

Willliam Warner '68, Ken Weaver '75, Scott Gilmore '79, Dean Didato '84, Rodney Wells '89, Seth Pitasky '93, Eric Knapp '99, Seth Wolfson '04, Joshua Harris '08.
That's all I have this week. Hope to see all of you at the golf outing in April (the cost is generally $50, though I haven't heard about this year) and if not then, Homecoming is in October. And our 40th anniversary is in October 2008, I hope you are planning on that special weekend.
