                    POLEMARCH’S PERSPECTIVE
My Brothers of the Philadelphia Alumni Chapter:

I want to wish every Brother and your families an enjoyable and safe Holiday Season!

The Philadelphia Alumni Chapter Football team lost again in the Turkey Bowl tournament. But I would like to
thank Brothers: Stephen Mack, Anthony Patterson, Sr., Charles D. McKinney, Jr., Sam Jordan, Camaron Milton,
John Kirby, DeAndre Jones, Jared Carroll, Dominique Starling, Kern Hayes, Charles Duncan, Esq., William
Farmer, Larheem Brown, Stephen Whitaker, Russ Sanders and Olumide Adeyemowas for representing Philadel-
phia Alumni Chapter. I’m glad our chapter participation has grown. Special Shout outs: to Brother Parris “Baby
Andy Reid” Sandlin for serving as coach (even though you promised me a trophy), to Brother Louis Williams
for attempting to provide his coaching knowledge and Brother James VanWright for serving as equipment man-
ager. Great Fellowship Activity!

We began the Intake process with Monday Night Football Fellowship Meet and Greet. If you have a prospective
candidate, please forward his name and contact information to Brother Tyrone Bynum.

The Black and White is coming this JUNE!! Are you ready?? Have checked your tuxedo? Does it fit? Does
your Silhouette or significant other need a new gown?? We’re going back to original format, Black and/or White
ONLY!! Please share with guests, more information will follow! Contact Brother Stan Simpkins our chairman,
if you have any questions.

Seriously, Brothers with the Holiday Season approaching it is time for us to do for those less fortunate. Please
call and/or send a card to our home bound Brothers and our Widowed Silhouettes. Brother Anthony Jackson
shared the very sad and unfortunate story of Silhouette Aprille Wickerson. Her address is 1121 Madison Street
in Chester PA and her contact number is 484-402-1071, she is again in need of assistance this Holiday Season. If
you are able, to provide toys or clothing, please contact her for specific items and sizes.

Mark your calendars, March 26th is the date for the 2010 Kappa Kabaret or Old School Kappa Party!
Ticket cost will not exceed $25!

If you need end of the year deductions, please consider our Achievement Academy!

Hope to see you at the December Chapter Meeting.
Yours in the Bond,
