Cyr '96 Casey J. Hiers '01 Kiefer R. W. Capps '17 T his is the beginning of my second year serving as president of the Home Association and my 47th year on the board of directors. Last year was, to say the least, challenging with the COVID - 19-related issues, rules, and procedures. Additionally, very low occupancy in the house and the expulsion of a few bad apples led to reduced operating income. With the support of Foundation President Joe Conti '85, Property Manager Dick Cypherd, Chapter SMC Will Weisbrod '21, and the rest of the Home Association team, however, we survived and entered this school year on a strong note. We took advantage of an empty house over the summer to complete many projects at a total cost of approximately $50,000. Those projects included: 1. Replaced concrete front patio and steps to be completely new. Thanks to Bill Kinder '95 for the work and for his financial contribution to fund this project. 2. Repaired, sealed, and striped the back parking lot. 3. Renovated three rooms upstairs. Two remaining rooms will be renovated next summer. 4. Upgraded and refreshed the area between the sidewalk and street in front of the house. 5. Replaced the basement ice machine. 6. Cleaned dryer vents. 7. Cleaned and checked HVAC units. 8. Replaced several damaged or missing chairs. We appreciate the foundation covering these replacement costs. 9. Deep cleaned the entire house, including removal of old and abandoned furniture left by brothers who are not returning this fall. 10. Installed five new windows to replace those no longer functional. 11. Repaired all spring semester damages. Regarding COVID -19 in this new school year, 100% of the current residents have either been vaccinated, have had COVID -19, or are tested on a regular basis. We continue to follow the "Protect Purdue" policies and procedures. The current SMC, Conall Farney '23, and his executive board are doing an outstanding job and working closely with Dick Cypherd and myself to keep the house in excellent condition. If you have any questions or comments, please contact me at (314) 973-7666 or tlm@tlmcos.com. In the bonds of ϕϕκα, Tom Maddox '71 Home Association President
