Welcome home! The newly renovated DKE House greeted dozens of Rho DKE collegians to campus this past weekend.
The schedule of events includes a golf outing, dedication ceremony with President Byerly, Oktoberfest, and the 160th Anniversary dinner. Families and friends are welcome at each event except for the annual meeting of the Rho House Association. The registration page has details. If we do not hit our minimum attendees for each event by October 7th, we’ll be canceling the specific events where we fall short of our minimum attendees.
We’re also offering Rho DKE gear commemorating our 160th Anniversary. Again, if we don’t hit our minimum numbers for a specific item, we’ll be canceling that item’s order.
The Rho House Association is looking forward to seeing many Rho Dekes celebrate this significant milestone in our chapter’s illustrious history. In the meantime, please enjoy the photos made available on Flickr by the College’s photographer, Chuck Zovko.
It is hard to believe it was just over a year ago that we hosted the ground breaking ceremony for this exciting renovation.
The fall 2015 edition of the Rho News (click here for PDF) was distributed via the College via e-mail and direct mail this week.
This issue focuses on the significant accomplishment of renovating the DKE House at Lafayette College. It also introduces the events the Rho House Association has planned to commemorate the 160th Anniversary of the Rho Chapter of Delta Kappa Epsilon during Homecoming (October 16-17). Other highlights include features of our collegiate’s accomplishments, new careers, and an update from the Class of ’86.
If you haven’t yet made your gift or pledge in honor of DKE’s 160th Anniversary at Lafayette College, please do so now. Gifts are fully tax deductible and may be spread over up to five years, but you need to make your gift or pledge before October 1st to be included in the recognition materials for the 160th Anniversary. In addition to a plaque in the DKE House recognizing leadership gifts, every donor will be recognized in the program for the 160th Anniversary Dinner. Just say “DKE 160” in the memo line of your gift.
We still need $160,000 to fully fund our share of the DKE House renovation. Make your gift to be a part of this exciting chapter in our fraternity’s storied history.
