Pi Kappa Phi

Dear Brothers:

Alumni should feel free to contact Pat Guerra’99 (Pat@BetaAlpha.com), or Russ Chomiak '70, '82 (rachomiak@aol.com) to receive invitations and information regarding alumni events.  Every month, typically the first Wednesday, we convene for a social event in various pubs throughout North Jersey.  Brother Ron Szkodny’76 (rszkodny@patmedia.net) is in charge of the schedule and locations. Contact him if you know of a good location to host the event or to get on his notification list. One of those locations is reserved for a shore pub, Kelly’s Tavern in Neptune  every June.  We also have a "blow-off day" in Manasquan for the third Friday each July. Founders day is held each year on the second Sunday of the month at a restaurant usually in the Newark area. Mark the date on your calendar now and check our website for details September 1st. www.BetaAlpha.com

In addition, the "senior" alumni group meets annually for a weekend event.  Contact Russ (rachomiak@aol.com) for location and dates.

The Beta Alpha Alumni News is the official Publication of the Beta Alpha Chapter Alumni Organization. Look for past editions on our website www.BetaAlpha.com  To update your Email, Phone, and Mailing Contact information please send your information to Pat@BetaAlpha.com only Beta Alpha Business will be sent to you.

In September 2013 our chapter moved into its brand new home at 5 Greek Way, Newark NJ off Warren St. across from the athletic field.  Our Home is part of the Greek Village in the Warren St Village project. This has been the best thing to happen to our chapter since its founding! This was a huge undertaking and many folks made it possible. Our fund raising campaign has over $825,000 in pledges so far. We need your help to reach our goal of $1 million so that we can pay off our short term financing that allowed us to break ground and move in.  The rest of the building costs will be covered by a traditional mortgage.  Please use our online pledge form on our website www.BetaAlpha.com to submit your tax deductible pledge today!
