    Hey all,

    I hope that this summer has given

    us all a much-needed rest, so thatwe can redouble our efforts forthe upcoming year. Last year, ourbrotherhood became more unitedthan ever, and we all pushed our-selves to do more service, and toattend more fellowship and mem-bership events. Our beloved VPService Matt Lanza found out thatboth as a collective and individu-ally, we improved the amount ofcommunity service we did dra-

    matically, which is greatly high-lighted by both his and KaitlinDouglass efforts with over 70hours each, as well as the manymembers with over 50 hours. As abrotherhood, we established manyways to improve involvement andhad very active participation in thedifferent committees. By havingsomewhat of a friendly, yet com-petitive feeling in APO, we allhelped each other help the com-

    munity. We can all be proud forthe work we did last semester.eager to start working to makeAPO even better this semester.But the semester is in the past,and we have a very strong execboard, In Kaitlin, Gurbani andDavid Bautista we have great VPs.Kaitlin has already done an amaz-ing job this summer getting serviceprojects in line for us, and I knowthat she will bring fun and new

    ideas to the table, such as aKindergarten Reading Day, ormore hands-on projects.Gurbani is currently lookinginto another laser tag event,skiing, high-ropes courses andas a collective well help herdecide which to choose. AndDavid is opening up a fellow-ship spreadsheet where wecan brainstorm for differentevents. Im sure he has greatthings planned for us. Wealso cant help but feel ex-

    cited about Jason Lees big/little ideas such as Big/LittleAssassins, Snowman building,and Water pong tournament.Dan and Nini have also beenplanning long and hard for theAlpha Omicrons, theyll need

    our enthusiasm to keep mak-ing APO a better fraternity.

    Matt Cat has already dona phenomenal job as histrian over the summer an

    Im sure hell continue doing so. There are clearmany ideas to talk abouand many other eagmembers of exec that wbring all of their excitment with them, but weget to that as the semeter gets underway. As fome, as President, I wcontinue to try to improvthe transparency betwee

    the executive board anthe brotherhood, and wdo my best to get everone involved in one wor another. Lets pick uwhere we left off last smester; lets push eacother to always do morechallenge you all, as well myself, to do even moservice than last semesteand always try to he

    Blast From the Past!

    In 1947, only two years after chartering at Penn, the Delta Zeta chapter snapped these photographs.Above is a rush event, below is that years initiation ceremony. Both likely took place in Houston Hall,

    where our chapter held its meetings and had its own office at the time.

    The face of our Brotherhood has certainly changed, but at least we still use the same goats head at all ofour Rush events!
