Sigs Gather for Holiday Brotherhood

Delta Delta brothers found two occasions to get together to celebrate the Christmas season in December.

Delta Delta Brothers in attendance at the Sigma Chi luncheon. (L-R) Clayton Force ’02, Tom Leslie ’68, George Morton ’59, Tony D’Eramo ’89, Pete Clark ’59, Jim Dora ’59 and Phil Steele ’77.

Indianapolis Alumni Chapter Christmas Luncheon

Brothers ranging from the Classes of 1959 to 2002 enjoyed catching up at the annual Indianapolis Sigma Chi Alumni Chapter Christmas luncheon held on December 14 at the River Walk in Indianapolis. Everyone always enjoys the chance to visit with brothers of other chapters and our own Delta Delta group.

Sharing the Holiday Spirit. (L-R) Frank Speek ’15, Bob Andreone ’81, Tom Hall ’81, JB Carson ’78 and Jim Rush ’80.

One very special brother was missing this year. Jack Leslie ’37 entered Chapter Eternal this past year. Brother Leslie had attended this event many times and for the past several years had the honor of being the oldest Sigma Chi in attendance.

(L-R) Brian Griffiths ’95, David Woodruff ’99 and Scott Brenton ’94.

Indiana Congressman Todd Rokita (Delta Chi/Wabash College) spoke briefly to the group as the guest speaker. As is the tradition the lunch ended with all the brothers singing the Sweetheart of Sigma Chi.

Delta Delta Holiday Gathering

A group of 20 – 25 Delta Delta brothers converged on Champps, an Indianapolis area watering hole, to wish each other Happy Holidays. Organized by Jeff McKean this annual event was held December 20th and gives local Indianapolis Sigs one last chance to meet before rushing out to buy their last minute gifts.

(L-R) Bill Trachtman ’82, Mark Herrmann ’81, Jim Ries ’83 and Dave Westerbeck ’83.

Included in the group were older, younger and recent alumni brothers and undergraduates. Along with discussing the state of Purdue football and basketball, it was a great opportunity to share some holiday cheer with true friends.

We hope more Delta Delta brothers can join us at both events next year.
