Fourth Annual Lambda Chi Alpha
White Rose Informal
We would like to stress IN-formal
So dress, as you want to dress - this is a time for remembrance!
Again it will be at the hotel in one of the party rooms.
We will have a buffet dinner and cash bar.
Lets just say they didnt lose any money on the bar tab last year.
HOWEVER, Because so many of you like to respond that you are coming
to the dinner and dont show up, the Financial Committee (Rob LaVeau)
took a huge loss last year.
THEREFORE, We will have a pre-payment for the dinner this year.
When you receive your response cards in June this year
there will be a self-addressed stamped envelope and a reminder
to put in your check for your possibly tax deductible contribution of
$35 for the first person and $25 for each additional person eating.
If you don't want to eat you will be asked to contribute $10.00 to the
Alumni fund to help pay for the Signal and mailings.
A receipt will be issued to you for dues to the Iota Sigma Zeta Alumni Association.
If you show up and havent paid yet we can handle that by paying at the door.
Rob/Susan LaVeau and Max are tired of spending lots of time trying
to locate people to get them to pay up!
So, now that we are all adults and dont have to write home for money..,
at least I think that is the case for most people..,
You will pay up front. If you pay and cant make it..,
well discuss a possible refund after the party,
but remember if you dont pay we dont guarantee you can eat.
If you know of any addresses of your Chop classmates,
Sunday the 13th
Whomever's Left Brunch
Same place as last year - T.G.I. Fridays!
Final chance to reminisce and talk about the weekend!
Come see who looks terrible!
Yours in ZAX,
You can register On-line here!
Remember your registration is not complete until we receive
your dinner deposits!
Click here to go to the On-line Registration Form
Remember it is okay to only come to one event!
Just the Friday Night Party or just the Saturday Picnic
A lot of Chops only made it to one event last year but the made it!
That was the one event that they had the chance to see old friends,
exchange new numbers and addresses and remember what
Lambda Chi Alpha at Valpo was like!
Join us for whatever you can, JUST join us!
SO TAKE THE PLUNGE AND
COME TO CHOP BLOCK PARTY FIVE!
We want you to participate and have fun!
If you have any ideas or suggestions,
if you have any thing you want to see in the Signal,
call Max or Rob any time!
Brother Of The Weekend -
1.) Pete Volk for writing to the V. U. Alumni Association and getting
Golf Towels and Key Chains for Golf Awards. Great idea to be expanded upon.
2.) Paul Decker and the whole family for flying out from Seattle
3.) Pete Volk for his hair - "The drool starts in one hour!"
Brother of the Year -
Cheryl Monical and Max Burrus for repairing/repainting "Brother Count"
Tom Konezika for rescuing the "LAMP"
Snake for saving Brother Count from the wrecking ball!
Best Remembrance -
Mark Serstock at National headquarters:
To make it simple.
One the pledge trip to Nationals,
Mark was so wasted that while the rest of the pledges toured the building,
he went into Executive Director George Spazyk's Office
and lay down on the big leather couch ,
Needless to say the urge to purge overcame Mark
and he went into George's private bathroom
and Yacked all over Nationals!
Honorable Mention to the story that when the house
was about to be shut down by Nationals,
that the ELC -the Education and Leadership Correspondent
from National Headquarters went to stay in a hotel room
because he was too afraid to stay at the house.
