Sigs Meet for Holiday Events

Delta Delta alumni and undergraduate brothers took part in two Sigma Chi holiday events in December giving them the chance to share the spirit of the season.

L-R: Phil Steele '77, Pete Clark '58, Jeff McKean '86, Tom Leslie '68 and Jim Dora '58 share the holiday spirit at the Indianapolis Alumni Chapter Christmas luncheon.

Indianapolis Alumni Chapter Christmas Luncheon

The annual Indianapolis Alumni Chapter Christmas Party was held on December 13th at the River Bend Banquet Center. In attendance were over 100 alumni representing their alma maters from around the state and beyond. Delta Delta brothers, Jim Dora ‘58, Pete Clark ‘55, Tom Leslie ‘68, Jeff McKean ‘86 and Phil Steele ‘77 enjoyed the chance to mingle with the local Sigs, many of whom have been friends for years.

As part of the luncheon everyone receives a brief update on the activities of the Alumni Chapter from President Thad Ailes and chapter updates from each Grand Praetor. The Hoosier Sig of the Year award was also announced and 50 Year Sigs were recognized. All in all it is a great opportunity to share the Christmas spirit with brothers from many chapters.

Delta Delta Holiday Cheers Get Together

Delta Delta continued its long standing tradition of holding its annual Holiday Cheers Get Together at Champps in Indianapolis on December 18th. Over 30 brothers stopped by and shared a drink, some appetizers and numerous stories. Much of the conversation centered on the state of Purdue football, prospects for the Purdue basketball team, and family holiday plans. It is always a great time when brothers of all ages can meet and build on the spirit of brotherhood we all share.

Thanks as always to Jeff McKean ’86 for making the arrangements for this event. Our hope is that even more brothers can share a little holiday “cheers” with us next year.
