IN Alpha Delta Celebrates 50th Anniversary
The alumni of the Indiana Alpha Delta chapter at Indiana State University held their 50th Anniversary Banquet on October 25, 2008. Over 30 alumni attended the weekend, some traveled as far as Washington, Colorado, and many other places.
The weekend began with a casual night at Moggers’ Brewery. Saturday afternoon, you could find the alumni reminiscing at the homecoming tent and saying a long awaited Good and Welfare. The Gerhardt’s Bierstube hosted the reunion dinner. The chapter displayed numerous memorabilia and reminisced through the various eras of IN Alpha Delta. Gordon Henriott ’72 was recognized for his contribution for the monthly e-newsletters that have kept everyone in touch. The notes are a well appreciated update on all the alumni. Chuck Rubright ’69 was recognized for his contributions to the house and alumni through many years. Chuck always quietly made contributions towards the chapter which deserve recognition. The events were organized by Brad Poths ’85.
The weekend ended with the annual golf tournament and breakfast on Sunday. The weekend was a great rekindling of brotherhood. Brothers that haven’t seen each other for years easily reconnected for an incredible weekend. Please browse the photo gallery for pictures from the weekend.
The IN Alpha Delta chapter was chartered in 1958. IN Alpha Delta was the first chapter to integrate men of different racial backgrounds at Indiana State University. With over 500 initiates the chapter was a strong presence in Terre Haute until 1999 when the chapter closed.
