Message from President Steve Smelley (Houston, 1980)
Greetings Houston Sigma Chi Alumni Brothers!
The Chapter and I hope you are safe and doing your best to stay well during this Covid 19 Pandemic. The last month has been a sad one for Epsilon Xi Brothers, the chapter has lost Brothers Doug Joyce and Thomas Monroe.
The Board of Directors and the Wild Game Dinner Committee have been working diligently to prepare and plan for the 75th Wild Game Dinner 1-16-2021 Hotel Derek. At this writing all plans moving forward for this event. It appears that, National Officers and Grand Praetors are scheduled to be in attendance for the 75th Wild Game Dinner. Special thanks to Grand Trustee Kelly Park for donating a 9-foot alligator for the dinner. The Board of Directors and the Wild Game Dinner Committee will have a discussion this month regarding status of Wild Game Dinner.
Things seem to be starting to open. October Luncheon 10/6/2020 at Jax Grille. We are planning to have our October monthly Happy Hour details TBD. Until next issue of the Exchange, stay safe and healthy. I realize this is a shorter than normal message, hopefully next month will be back to normal.
The Chapter is planning for wine Tasting Event for the Fall details will be coming soon. With the latest spread of the virus, the Chapter has decided not to have our luncheons until it is safe to do so. We are planning to have our monthly Happy Hour, but we are doing them virtually for now. Until next issue of the Exchange, stay safe and healthy.
2021 Wild Game Dinner will be held at a new venue; Hotel Derek in the Galleria area.
Contracts have been executed and deposit made to secure the location. The Wild Game Dinner Committee is planning a star-studded event. International leaders and the Executive Committee from Headquarters along with Grand Praetors from all over the country are expected to attend the dinner. Our goal is 400 Brothers in attendance.
Saturday, January 16, 2021 is the date.
We are planning upcoming events as we can safely have them. Please reach out to a Brother you haven’t talked to in a while and let them know you are thinking about them and get them to participate in upcoming events. In the meantime, Stay safe.
In Hoc Signo Vinces
J. Steven Smelley, President 2020-2021
