Eta Omega has over 700 initiates since we were first became a chapter back in 1982. But having all those initiates is meaningless unless each and every alumnus participates in the betterment of the fraternity as a whole. That is why I am asking each and every one of you who reads this email to go online and make a minimum pledge of $10 to the Foundation Chapter of Theta Chi Fraternity.
As many of you may already know we are in the planning stages of a major renovation of the house. The funding for this huge effort will be made possible through a loan from Theta Chi. Without their assistance a loan of this size would be next to impossible to obtain.
We are only as strong as our weakest link…
Sound familiar? This begins with you. As part of this renovation there is a strategic plan within Eta Omega to increase alumni participation and elevate our presence within the national fraternity. With a minimum $10 donation you will receive a subscription to the Rattle and your name will be placed among your Eta Omega brothers who donated in the fall edition of the Rattle when they list the donors by chapter. The focus is not on amount but on participation. Our goal this year is to get 5% of our alumni to donate to Theta Chi. That is only 35 brothers. I know we will exceed that goal. Action is the key to the success of Eta Omega. The participation of each brother who reads this is key to us achieving this participation goal.
