“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty” -Winston Churchill

Congratulations to the new Chairs and a shout-out to James Hernandez for being voted “Most Outstanding Exec Board Member”. A special congratulations is in order for new brothers Jack Keller and Chandler Crawford on their respective Chairs. The election will come into effect next semester, Fall 2016.
Our annual Somers’ Ball was held the weekend of April 1st on Tybee Island. The event went over well and the Hotel Tybee staff has invited us back anytime.
Following our alpha meeting this evening, the brothers of Alpha Alpha Delta will face off against Beta Theta Pi in our first playoff game of the Intramural Softball Season. Should be a good time.
Renovations are complete in the kitchen and the upstairs bathroom. The interior of the Lodge has been totally repainted and the old carpet on the steps leading upstairs has been done away with in favor of a refinished surface. The columns attached to the back door are also finally complete. Special thanks to Brother Cofer, Dylan Loveland, our Lodge Manager Alex Chang and to all brothers that helped make the Lodge cleaner this semester than it ever has been since refounding.
We look forward to seeing all alumni and family this weekend.
