Marek '12 A s summer 2024 begins, we'd like you to know and be proud of the fact that our Minnesota chapter is doing well. As alumni volunteers, several of us get opportunities to engage with the chapter and get to know this welcoming, caring, and respectful group of young men. Kitchen Upgrade In recent months, our House Corporation has been working on a plan to replace the chapter's commercial dishwasher. The existing unit regularly leaks and is more than 30 years old. We expect to have the new unit installed and ready for the fall semester, at a cost of approximately $16,000. Living Room Patch Job In the chapter house's living room, visitors will certainly notice a large hole in the ceiling. In winter, another slow leak occurred in a 100-year-old return line to the boiler, which led to a 2x3-foot chunk of plaster ceiling crashing to the floor. Antony Hanson '25, Samuel Garber '26, and Aarav Paul '27 make tamales during a brotherhood event. PRESERVING OUR HOME THANK YOU, Generous Donors! Will More Brothers Step Up Today to Support Our Chapter Needs? Update from the House Corporation Board Thankfully, no one was injured, and the slow leak was stopped. These old lines in ceilings on the first couple of levels are beyond their lifespan and will likely cause more leaks until we stop using them. What's Next? Aside from these two projects, we're beginning to discuss more work on our entire property. For example, if you were to visit our block on University Avenue, you would note that all neighboring fraternity houses on the row now have metal fences and/or artificial turf installed on the front facades. As always, we seek to remain competitive and promote Beta Pi as the best choice of fraternity for potential new members and returning residents alike. Yours in __kai__, Scott Heineman '03 President, Beta Theta Pi Society of Minnesota OUR CHAPTER NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT. GIVE TODAY!
