Do you still keep in touch with your Beta Chi brothers? Somewhat. I always look forward to our reunions at Rolla. But it is more difficult for me because I now live in Virginia and most of my pledge class reside in the Midwest. I have a winter residence in Ft. Myers, Florida, so I do see Burr Burr, who lives on Marco Island, and Bill Kirchoff '60, who has a residence in Naples, Florida. Tell us about your family. Joan (an MU Chi Omega alumna) and I have been married for 53 years. We have three daughters, Julie, Kelly and Holly, three sons-in- law, and 10 grandchildren.

This outing hosts Kappa Sigma alumni and undergraduates from multiple chapters at Paradise Valley Golf Club (or any golf course you desire) each June. Please contact Robert Hoffmann '78 at roberth@hoffmannbros.com if you are interested in volunteering in this role. If we do not find someone to take over the planning of this event, we risk losing it altogether! Update Your Email Address Do you receive email updates from us? If not, you are probably missing out! While the Beta-Chi Columns has great information, it's not the only way we update our alumni. Please send any contact information updates (or even just a quick email so we know we have it on file) to jgoodman@penningtonco.com to ensure you are in our database! Kappa sigma Needs YOur help
