Alumni Banquet at Alfonso's Trattoria
With a turn-out of over 80 Brothers, including 17 alumni, this year’s Alumni Banquet was a huge success! It was a huge honor to plan this event as WAL because this huge P4 class has done so much for the Fraternity. The night began with announcing the Brothers voted to receive scholarships to LDS, based on their selflessness, leadership, and potential. Our generous alumni donated enough to send four brothers to St. Louis! It was so great to have a large alumni presence here to show them how far we have come thanks to their support. After a delicious buffet of Italian food at a family restaurant, we began the speeches that Littles prepared for their Bigs. These speeches are personally my favorite part because they are such a great reflection of the bond we share. I still remember three years ago, when this was one of the first events I got to see as a Brother, and it will always be one of my favorites. A few hours of tears, laughter, and hugs later, we completed the night with group photos and the ritual, officially welcoming our P4 Brothers into the Alumni Chapter. Although I am going to miss this class, I am grateful for all they have done and excited to see what they do as Alumni.
