Spring Parents' Weekend 2014
A Night in Monte Carlo

Casino Night

The Tau Chapter celebrated Spring Parents' Weekend with a gourmet banquet and a Monte Carlo casino night theme at the Kappa Sig lodge on April 12. It was a wonderful evening for both parents and actives, with a special toast and gift presentation to the Kappa Sigma graduating senior class of 2014. The menu featured filet mignon, Caprese salad, eclairs and creme puffs, and a cosmopolitan drink fountain.

Following a beautiful dinner and senior presentation, parents
and actives enjoyed themselves at the gaming tables on
the lodge terrace.

Parents' Weekend: Celebrating Kappa Sigma Families and the Brotherhood

Dear Kappa Sigma Parents, Tau Trustees, Actives and Pledges,

Thank you so much for making Fall Parents' Weekend 2013 such a wonderful celebration of brotherhood, families and friends within the Kappa Sigma Fraternity.

A special thank you to Elizabeth and Ed Horne, Rhonda and Reggie Tuck, and Laura Pang and Bill Wheeler, who spent many, many hours behind the scenes to make Parents' Weekend the first-class event that it was. Elizabeth, Rhonda and Laura served as co-chairs and were truly a "dream team" to work with. Thank you also to the awesome volunteers who helped set up for the event and register guests.

We also owe a huge debt of gratitude to Leigh Stubbs, who creates and manages the Parents' Directory, a much needed resource for staying in touch.

The Silent Auction was a huge success! Thank you, everyone, who donated or bid on auction items. The money raised will help provide household improvements and repairs for the Kappa Sig Lodge and dormitory.

Congratulations to our Tau Man of the Year 2013, Jim Pritchett, a man whose character and accomplishments reflect the highest standards of Kappa Sigma in every way. I feel so fortunate that our sons have men such as Jim to look up to as stellar examples of the Kappa Sigma legacy. Thank you, Tau Trustees and Alumni, for making this legacy possible for our sons.

Thank you, Chapter President Hayden Witte, Actives, and Pledges, for helping prepare the grounds and Lodge for the event. The painting, scrubbing and cleaning were noticed and appreciated. Everything looked fabulous!

Kudos to Chef Ryan and the Kappa Sig household team for the wonderful food and service. You were great!

It was such a pleasure to be a part of this occasion!
