A PublicAtion of the KAnsAs betA chAPter of sigmA AlPhA ePsilon sPring 2019 The lion's lore INSIDE: A Living Legend 2 Thank You, Loyal Donors 3 Chapter Goals 3 Save the Date 4 Stay Connected with Kansas Beta Chapter Website National Website Twitter @sae_ksu I am pleased to report that the actives continue to provide strong leadership and the chapter continues aggressively on the upswing. For the spring 2019 semester, the chap- ter house is once again full, with 59 men living in. The house has never looked better and the chapter budget is in solid shape. Please read the chapter update by Nathan Jackson '21 on page 3. A sincere thanks to each of you for your tremendous support in donating over $325,000 for our summer 2017 kitchen and dining room remodel project. Our next major improvement project is the chapter house HVAC system, which ranges from 24 years old for the air conditioning to over 50 years old for the boiler. The total project cost will be approximately $150,000. This project had been on the House Corporation radar, and we have been fundraising toward this purpose over the last year, but now the need is immediate. Over the weekend of September 15-16, 2018, our air condi- tioning unit failed. The unit dates back to 1994 and will cost approximately $50,000 to replace. We have raised approxi- mately $30,000 to date. Your continued support is greatly appreciated. PLEASE JOIN US FOR ERNIE BARRETT '51 "MR.
