Candlelight Page 2 Over the last number of years, we have challenged our undergraduates and alumni to join forces. We want Beta Phi to be known as the preeminent chapter at Purdue University. We are truly on that path. We can be proud of our Chapter, our alumni and our undergraduates. It takes everyone. We have more than 40 alumni who are active on the Beta Phi Foundation, Home Association and Alumni Advisory Board, in some way, every day, week, and month. I personally want to thank each and every one of them. Join us! You're going to love the experience. Sincerely in Phi Phi K A, Joe Conti '85 President, Beta Phi Foundation (715) 498-4498 joe.conti@construcks.com Homecoming 2018 (Continued from page 1) Front row, from left: Jim Barr '66, Brian Doolittle '70, Geoff Boling '70, Bob Blakey '70, and Rex Martin '72.

Home association Recognizes cHaPteR's effoRts T he Home Association has relied heavily on the property management services of Dick Cypherd and his expertise for many years. As part of his work, Dick performs a weekly inspection of the house and prepares a report that is sent to the Home Association Board, Chapter leadership, and Alumni Advisory Board. Those reports often include incidence of damage, leftover debris, and the occasional failure to reload the water softener with more salt. As I enter my fifth year on the Beta Phi Home Association board, I want to recognize the marked improvement I've seen in those reports between the start of my tenure and today. Damage is being reduced, trash is going into trash cans, and someone finally remembered to lock all of the windows on the first floor (only took four years)! This improvement has been discussed in each of the last three Home Association meetings, and I hope it continues to be a discussion topic. One of our primary goals as advisors to the undergraduates is to help foster a winning culture, and a culture of constant improvement. It's impossible to create that culture without taking pride in your work and pride in your environment. To the undergraduates, thank you for your efforts in maintaining the house we all cherish. Smythe chapters understand that everything must be done the right way, including making sure the water softener has salt. Fraternally, Matt Folz, Theta Omicron '07 Home Association President matthew.r.folz@gmail.com Thank You, Loyal Beta Phis Carol Fitch Richard A. Glenn '49 Gerald E. Grant '54 Gerald E.

Thank you for committing more than $27,000 toward the undergraduates' scholarship and recruitment activities, in addition to the upgrades to wireless internet within the house. We would not be the Chapter we are today without you!
