H ello from Pullman, I hope this finds every- one well. e end of spring semester is a good time to stop and ponder as students who have made Pullman their home for the past four (or more) years graduate, pack their things, and head out into the world to seek their fortunes. is transition, from student to productive mem- ber of society, is a critical time in everyone's life and I have no doubt the young men graduating from FarmHouse will prove our motto "Builders of Men" is still alive and well. From my vantage point as an association member and as a WSU employee, the importance of the connections that students have made during their college years really show during this time. Years ago my own post-graduate transi- tion was greatly helped along by connections with FarmHouse alumni and got me to where I am now. It is a true joy to now be able to help others make the same successful step forward and gives me a lot of hope for the future. On that note, here is my challenge to all of you— make it a goal this summer to reconnect with Farm- House, even in a small way. Reconnecting with the chapter can take many forms, but here are a few ideas to get things started: 1. Come to a regional FH event. e alumni as- sociation is planning several regional summer events, the details for which are in this news- letter, in the hopes of reconnecting with alum- ni who may not be able to make it all the way back to Pullman for events. e more people we can get to these events the better, so please bring your family and friends and help them reconnect as well. 2. Help brothers recruit new members. As alumni, you are one of the best sources for us to find upstanding young men coming to WSU who will help grow FarmHouse in a positive way. Please, if you do know of any quality potential new members, talk to them about FarmHouse and send their contact information to VP of Recruitment Caleb McEnderfer '16 at or (509) 385-1304. 3. Consider joining the association board this fall. We will be holding elections at our Home- coming meeting in September and there will be several board positions available. It really is a very rewarding experience that I would high- ly recommend. 4. Help us identify the people in the photo above. is was an old damaged picture that was found in the house and we had digitally re- stored. I am fairly certain this was taken during the 1970-71 school year and a lot of the names have been identified above. Can you identify any of the faces we have yet to place a name to? As always, I wish everyone a safe and productive growing season. Go Cougs! Dave Soler '03 Alumni Association President P.S. Congratulations to Gary Bryan '56 who will be receiving the Cougar Pride Award for his consistent demonstration of extraordinary loyalty, spirit, and pride in support of the university. e award will be presented by the WSU Alumni Association presen- tation on June 8 at 3 p.m. at the Lewis Alumni Cen- ter and we would love to see you there in support of our FarmHouse brother.
