This year Homecoming is the weekend of November 4 and 5, 2016. Friday night the festivities will kickoff with a tour of the new Chapter House construction from 4-5 pm. Meet representatives from the Housing Corp in the NE corner of the Show-Me Center parking lot off Sprigg St. From 6 pm-??? the festivities move out to The Lodge. This happy hour is for Pike Alumni and their spouses/dates. The Alumni Association will be providing light appetizers and mixed drinks and will have beer donated from the local distributors. The Housing Corp will have information and displays of the new Chapter House available. Saturday morning the Alumni Association is sponsoring a tented tail gate area directly in front of Houck Stadium and catty-corner from the D’ladium. Some refreshments will be provided (more details to follow). We will also have some tickets to the football game that will be offered to those alumni that paid their dues, on a first paid-first served basis. The tailgate will begin at 8:30 am, the Homecoming Parade begins at 9:30 am, and the football game kicks off at 1 pm. For those needing hotel rooms a block of rooms is reserved for Pi Kappa Alpha at the Auburn Place Hotel and Suites, $89 per night, (573) 651-4486.
Many thanks to Larry Eby, Heartland Regional President; Robert Guard, Chapter Advisor; and Jim Gleason, Housing Corp President, for their help on planning all the Homecoming events. All four of us are looking forward to seeing you at Homecoming November 4 and 5, 2016!
In the bonds:

EIAA Happy Hour at Joey B’s in Ballwin on Thursday August 25th.
Probably start having people show up by 5:00pm and should last until well after happy hour.
As many of you may know we had enlisted Pennington and Company to do a feasibility study to see if we would be able to raise the funds needed to move forward with the new house and exactly what amount they think is feasible. I might add that Pennington has a 93% success rate and it has come time for us to get those results. With that being said we want to invite you all to the unveiling of that information Monday May 20th at 6:30 pm at El Sol in Cape Girardeau, we have the private upstairs at El Sol with private bartender etc. Philip Bennett with Pennington (Pike from Rockhurst) will be giving his full report. I hope you all can and will attend as this is a huge step for Epsilon Iota and our step into the future.
I will be tied up with another meeting that night but Jim Gleason and Larry Eby will be there with Philip Bennett
