9th Annual SW Florida Sigma Chi Luncheon

Sigs Enjoy Special Bond

The 9th Annual SW Florida Sigma Chi Luncheon was held on March 1, 2014 at the Royal Poinciana Club in Naples, Florida. It was hosted by Kappa Kappa (Illinois) Sig, Tom Dyke ’55.

It was a beautiful day as the brothers and their sweethearts gathered to renew long standing friendships and to enjoy a great meal and afternoon of camaraderie. The event started with the group socializing on the club patio overlooking the golf course before moving to the dining room for lunch. Following the meal each brother shared a few memories and then enjoyed singing several classic Sig songs.

White Cross from 1942 Blue Formal

As the brothers serenaded their sweethearts with the Sweetheart of Sigma Chi, Mary Lee Craig displayed a White Cross necklace that her husband, Stan Craig ’43, gave her at the 1942 Blue Formal. Now that is something to cherish.

Delta Delta brothers and sweethearts in attendance included Stan and Mary Lee Craig ’43, Fred Jones ’46, Dick Hall ’57 and Mary Jo Carr, Bob and D’Arcy Elsperman, Bob and Shirley Puzey ’58, Bernie and Mary Sergesketter ’58, Jim and Shirley Dora ’58, Harry and Melanie Thompson ’58, Jim and Denny Baldauf ’59, Gary Guertin ’59, Joe Bob McCabe ’60, Tom Ross ’61, Bill and Pat Frey ’62, and Bob and Anita Smith ’65.

As the afternoon wound down several of the couples continued into the evening as they shared many special memories from over the years.
