Dear National Consul, The Provision a1 Chapter of Kappa Delta Rho at the University of Toledo would like to request for full Chapter status. Since our pledging on October 31, 1983 we have completed all material required by you, the National Consul, for Chapter status. We feel that we are more than qualified to become an active Chapter of Kappa Delta Rho. We have exhibited scholarship, sportsmanship, and brotherhood toward each other, our Greek system and our fine University. In our quest to achieve Chapter status we have set new goals for ourselves. Some of these goals are: to expand KDR to other campuses, to work toward improving our IFC program, to establish a community image and maintain a strong brotherhood. Once again I would like to express to you our pride and respect of Kappa Delta Rho. We will always strive to strengthen our KDR brotherhood.

History of University of Toledo Provisional Chapter
On September 22, 1983 at 9:00p.m., eight friends met with Donald Stohl, the Executive Director of Kappa Delta Rho Inc. Sheraton Westgate, Secor Rd. Toledo, Ohio.
This meeting was held at the
At this meeting, temporary
officers were elected and the by-laws of the organization were established. This orientation lasted until 3:00 a.m. September 23, 1983. weeks the enrollment soared to twenty-three.
In the next few
These twenty-three men began to
grow together, to become better friends and most importantly brothers. On October 30, 1983, the Brothers of the Lambda Alpha Chapter of Kappa Delta Rho pledged twenty-nine members from the University of Toledo, thus creating a provisional chapter of Kappa Delta Rho at the University of Toledo. The following Sunday, four more members were "pledged" into the provisional chapter, bringing the enrollment to thirty-four. Preceeding these ceremonies the members were able to show their pride in KDR by wearing the colors of the fraternity, which everyone wore everyday for nearly two-weeks.
On February 12, 1984, thirteen rushes were pledged into the
provisional chapter increasing the enrollment to forty-seven. From September 22, 1983 until the present day, our provisional chapter lest two members;had financial difficulties and will be returning to the
University in the Fall of 1984 and one member transferred to the University of Cincinnati.
As of February 16, 1984, Spring Quarter rush is in full swing
and the enrollment is expected to increase. During the course of the last six months we have been involved in many activities.
Such as IF~, parties to expand our campus recognition and
individual involvement with the fraternities and sororities at the University of Toledo.

PLEDGE TRAINING April 16, 1984 The purpose of our pledge training program is to facilitate all of the pledges into our brotherhood.
It is also to help each individual reach his
full potential; for his own good and for the good of the fraternity as well. This program is set for a six week period beginning at the time of pledging. The night of pledging we intend to have a party with the pledges to start developing a close brotherhood. During the first pledge class meeting we will hold the elections for the group.
They will be taught how to run meetings in the proper manner.
during the first meeting we will assign the pledges to learn the first ten questions of the activation test. Sometime in the second week of pledging the new members will be sent on a hunt for clues to find out who will be there big brother.
That weekend we
intend to have a parents club gathering so that all of the new pledges parents will get a chance to meet and find out more about our proud fraternity. In the second pledge class meeting the pledges will be required to take a quiz over the first ten activation questions and will be assigned the second group of ten questions.
Also in this meeting there will be a discussion over
the financial responsibility to belonging to our fraternity. Then, during the third week, we have planned a football game or some other activity between the actives and pledges to bring us close together.
the third pledge class meeting there will be a quiz over the second group of questions and the final fifteen questions will be assigned. talk on brother, positive thinking, and motivation.
There will be a

At the fifth pledge class meeting there will be a quiz of the final fifteen questions for the activation test. campus activities and chapter operations. pledges will have a party aÂąasses.
There will be a discussion of Sometime during this week the
This will be to promote our belief in a
strong Greek system here at the University of Toledo.
Also during this week
the pledge class will get together for a review of the activation test. On the sixth week of pledging will be several meetings or parties of the pledges to get them "psyched up" for their activation on the following weekend. This is just a start of some of the ideas I have come up with for the spring and fall pledge classes.
I am sure it is just a scratch on the surface
of some of the events that will occur during pledging.

This event took place on
February 20 and 21, 1984.
On Friday, April 13, 1984, we participated in the Kenny Rogers Food Drive for the Hungry.
He asks all of his fans to donate one can of food
as they enter his concert.
Our job was to receive these goods, package

History The provisional chapter of Kappa Deha Rho's first organized meeting took place on September 29, 1983. At the meeting a $1.00 votingâ&#x20AC;˘ contribution was required. This voting fee remained in use for the next four meetings. On November 14, 1983 the initial $1.00 voting fee was replaced by a $14.00 monthly payment for dues. Our chapter is presently using this $14.00 per month system. Looking into the future, our monthly dues may be increased to a more suitable figure to meet the increased expenses. From October 1, 1983 to the present our bookkeeping system has remained unchanged. The system is composed of two notebooks. One notebook containing a profile of each active and pledge. The other notebook is divided into three section. The first section is our saving and checking account.
BLUE-BOOK The treasury's "blue-book" contains a profile card for each active member and pledge. On every card the name of the member, the amount that they have paid (or owe) and the date money was received, can be found. All the cards are arranged alphabetically with active members preceding pledges to further the ease of locating a profiles.
FINANCIAL BOOKS Another notebook in the treasury's possession contains all the financial activity of the fraternity. All inflows and outflows of cash are recorded in the general ledger with the date and a brief description. This ledger also works as a cross reference with the "blue-book". Whenever money is received
(by members) it is initially placed in the ledger. Cross referencing takes place when the transactions are posted to each member's profile in the "blue-book". This notebook also contains a separate section for the savings account and another for the checks account. Both the checking and the savings accounts are located at the Huntington Bank.
ADDITION INFORMATION All checks written and withdrawals from the savings account must have two signatures. There are only four people with this authority, the include: treasurer, president, fund-raising chairman, and standards board chairman. In addition to the profiles kept in the "blue-book", the pledge account can be found. Each pledge class is given a $100.00 loan to spend however they want. When the pledge class goes active, it is required that they return this $100.00 loan, but they get to keep any additional funds in their account.
Our filing system is designed so that each Officer and Chairman maintains a loose - leaf binder.
In this binder we are required to keep
all letters, notes, etc. that are received.
These binders will passed
on to the Officers and Chairman that precede the current ones.
Eventually, these flyers, letters, etc. that have been kept will be transferred to a filing cabinet.
This will occur as soon as a
fraternity house is obtained and a permanent location for storage is established.
Maintenance of there records has been strongly stressed and enforced by our Executive Committee and Standards Board.
PARENTS CLUB April 16, 1984
To this date we have had two functions in which the parents were invited.
The first was held in the student union.
The purpose of this
evening was to let the parents meet each other and better understand the fraternities framework, standards, and goals.
Each officer and chairman
explained his position and duties to the group. (chips, pretzels, pop) present free of charge.
There were refreshments To close the evening,
informal skits were put on by the brothers. The second event was a joint date-parent night, held on the Scott Park Campus.
There was no formal presentation given but dancing and
refreshments were enjoyed. Although a donation glass was displayed at the first event there has been no talk of any financial support requested from the parents. Also no formal organization has been formed.
But the breakdown of
negative stereo type have been dissolved and the creation of an understanding, comfortable, proud group of parents has been achieved. In the future there will be a structural parents organization to support and accent the chapter.
This step will be completed by June 15
when this group will provide a positive force to the chapters brotherhood and chapter house. This quarter will have a trip to Detroit for a father and son baseball game.
In the first week of June a picnic is planned for all
the brothers and there parents. David A. Dorner Parents Club Chairman
