$300 raised for Scholarship Fund!

I wanted to express my thanks (as well as thanks from the active chapter) for those of you who contributed to the scholarship and/or participated in Friday's poker tournament. And let me congratulate Brian Peterson, who pulled down the victory. More importantly, we were able to raise $300 for the scholarship fund. I would like to award the scholarship within the coming week, so if you'd still like to put your input into selecting the scholarship winner, please read the essays I sent in an earlier email and shoot me back a top 2 or 3. If there is anything any of you would like done in the coming month of March please contact me, otherwise we will plan on meeting on the third Thursday of the month for happy hour at Rock Bottom.

Welcome to the website!

Welcome to the new website of the Central Iowa Sigma Chi Alumni Association. We will use a blog type setup for our website to post Guy's latest messages to the association, and it will also serve as a great place for us to post pictures, upcoming events, and news from our gatherings.

Since it will be in a spot that many of us will see it, please feel free to take advantage of leaving comments after Guy's posts. Whether it is excitement about the upcoming events, a question about something, or if you have an idea -- it is a great spot to voice it.

Hope to see you all at the next event!

In Hoc,

Tim A. Lewis, '05
