The first check I cut this year while making my year-end donations was to the Chi Phi Renovations Fund and F&M. While I give to many other causes, I have a particular sense of pride and legacy in supporting F&M.
This fall, I was enjoying the Al Yoder '48 memorial pig roast during Homecoming, when I took a moment and appreciated what was happening at Chi Phi. Brothers of all ages, from the '50s to the present, smiling and laughing and swapping stories. It felt good, really good. This was the "Brotherhood" we talk about, the "Brotherhood" that we pledged to many moons ago. The "Brotherhood" that I will always support.
