New in this issue:
This year will mark the 157th birthday of our beloved Fraternity. As is the case each year, groups around the country will be
coming together to celebrate Founders’ Day. This year, brothers will come together under the theme of "1+1=71,000—Growing,
One Brother at a Time."
As we all know, Brothers Letterman and Moore founded our Fraternity on the principle of “The Great Joy of Serving Others.”
Well, thanks to the ever-changing landscape of Greek Life around the country, that ideal can be applied internally more and
more. Volunteering to help our own brothers has become the model of success for our modern organization. In addition to the
great work we can do in our communities, we can further the lives of our own members.
So this coming Founders’ Day we want to increase our attendance. If you have attended a Founders’ Day before, attend the
upcoming one, as well; but make sure you bring another brother, too.
Remember—‘Bring One Brother’—this mentality will increase participation and hopefully reengage somebody in Phi Kappa
Psi. The details of this year’s Founders’ Day events, hosted by the Birmingham chapter of the Alabama Alpha Alumni
Association, are listed below:
