Dear Brothers of Delta Chapter: Enclosed is a small check to help with whatever is needed as you come back into the national fold. I must say that I felt like an orphan for all those years when my chapter was a local. I was happy to see that you are now reaffiliating. Who knows, I may even stop in at the house at reunion '86 which will be my 35th. In any event, I hope that the years ahead for you will be as happy as the years past have been for me. Believe me, when you graduate, your Colgate degree will stand you in good stead and your KDR experience will be like good wine. It will mellow as it ages. Honor Super Omnia.
