called it home. On Aug. 8-12, Chicago, Ill., welcomed the Fraternity back in grand fashion for the 46th Supreme Chapte.r. Enveloped by the historic Congress Hotel and majestic skyline of the Windy City, over 600 Pi Kappa Phis gathe.red to honor milestones, to rewrite laws, to network between brothers and to celebrate Fraternity. From across town to across the country, brothers began their registration throughout the day on Saturday, Aug. 8. During the bustling ofluggage and programs, the Foundation, Push America and Properties were already hard at work with their board meetings, which gave way to the first Supre.me Chapter Session. All the commotion eventually settled, however, and the Supreme Banquet kicked-off events, highlighted by the presentation of the Mr. Pi Kappa Phi Award and the Hall of Fame Inductee (see related stories on page 20-21) . Roge.r Crouch (Old Dominion- Gamma Beta) ended the banquet on a celestial note. Crouch se.rved as a payload specialist aboard the Space Shuttle Columbia last summe.r. He presented Pi Kappa Phi CEO Mark E. T1rnmes with a small memento of the trip-a Pi Kappa Phi flag that he carried Qn the mission, as well as a collage of pictures documenting the voyage. A whirlwind of meeting and legislative sessions occupied most of the week. To break up the day, themed lunches allowed undergraduates the chance to honor their fellow brothers, as well as find out about the diffe.rent entities of the Fraternity. Sunday's Push America luncheon began this special programming, followed by the Foundation on Monday and Pi Kappa Phi on Tuesday. The children and spouses program this year featured tours of the Shedd Aquarium, visit to the Navy Pie.r Children's Museum, an Architectural Boat Tour and a Children's Supre.me Banquet. Family and friends also joined the Pi Kappa Phi brothers for a cruise on the Spirit of Chicago and a Chicago classic: cookout and White Sox baseball. As another successful Supre.me Chapte.r has come to a dose, one can now begin to look forward to the 47th Supreme Chapter and the maturing of a Fraternity and a second millennium: Orlando, Fla., August, 2000.
