Tennessee Delta 50th Anniversary Celebration

Kevin Smith Memorial Tree Re-Dedication

Over the weekend of October 18-20 the alumni and current undergraduates of the New York Eta Chapter will be hosting a re-dedication ceremony for the Kevin Smith memorial tree. The re-dedication will take place on the RIT campus as part of the 2019 Brick City homecoming weekend.

Why a re-dedication? Kevin’s tree was destroyed during some heavy storms on the RIT campus. Working with RIT, a new tree has been planted (in a new location), and the time is right to come together during Brick City to celebrate our Phi Delta Theta brotherhood, remember Kevin, and bond with the new Phis of our newly reinstalled New York Eta Chapter at RIT. Kevin’s family will be attending the re-dedication of his tree.

Please join us in honoring Kevin’s memory, and all it means to be a Phi, by coming back to RIT October 18-20 to be part of this special weekend of brotherhood.

Over three days, PLC participants learn the fundamentals of being a chapter leader, with emphasis on leadership, ethics, managing chapter operations and external relations, risk management, and character. The conference features presentations by the best speakers in the Greek world and breakout team meetings facilitated by volunteer alumni and General Headquarters staff members.
