On December 11th a partial nephrectomy was performed. Tests within 10 days of the operation confirmed it was renal cell carcinoma. Another month has passed and all tests to date indicate I am free and clear. So free and clear in fact that along with two of my Alpha Delta brothers of 40+ years we shall once again venture into central Kansas for our annual Pheasant Hunt. The end result of this experience has been positive. The well wishes I re- ceived from over two dozen Alpha Delt brothers made it even better. Having had this experience I really understand the notion that none of us knows what tomorrow may bring. We can however, do our best to be prepared. My personnel affiliation with Alpha Delta has had a positive effect on my life and helped me to be prepared.

As the young men of President, while they hang the Alpha Delta positively more forward to Christmas lights being prepared, the assistance from those brothers that went before them is priceless. Join me in assisting our frater- nity however you are able. In just two short years Alpha Delta will achieve a milestone. I hope to visit with you 5

Any news that you might share would be appreciated and if you would want to contribute an article, that would really be great! I personally am curious as to why there isn't a Fireman's Ball anymore. I am guessing that some Social Chairman in the dim past ( since 1960 ) had a really impressive lady friend and gave in to allowing her to jump out of one of those big cakes as a salute to her beauty. Maybe not, but it would be interesting to hear the reason the glorious Fireman's Ball was phased out.

  15. 15. ALPHA DELTA ANNUAL GIVING PROGRAM The Annual Giving Campaign is moving toward a great success in its' first year. Alumni have been expressing their support for this important program by sending in $8,940.00of donations since July, 1, 2009. The program runs through June 30, 2010 and we are hoping to raise enough to help pay for the $31,000 fire sprinkler system which the fire marshal is requiring us to install in the very near term. John Minnick Alumni who contribute to the Annual Giving Campaign will have their names recorded on a List of Honor that will be displayed in a glass case in the front parlor at the fraternity house. Each year the list will be refreshed and reflect all contributors who gave during the past year. Alumni can also make contributions in the name of deceased brothers whom they may wish to honor in this worthwhile effort. Many thanks go out to all of the alumni listed below who have made contributions to the Annual Giving Campaign! Your support and loyalty to Alpha Delta will help us to ensure that the house is well maintained and that our traditions and values are passed onto our younger brothers as we approach our 100th Anniversary in 2012. Fraternally, John Minnick, Alumni Secretary The next issue of the Triangle will be forthcoming in March. I am always looking for “Information From the Field”. If you have anything about yourself that you think might be of interest to your fellow Brothers, please send it along to be included in the next issue. There are a lot of alums still kicking around out there, and surely there must be something going on that would gee of interest to some or all of us! Send your news to: Editor Brother Phil 15
