It has been a great year on the alumni front with being able to finally celebrate on 100th charter- ing anniversary. A few thank you’s to Don Reisfeld for the tremendous job he does on our publications and to Jay Reano for his effort on the Denver Area Third Thursday Lunch program. To ZBT’s staff and leadership for their continued support as well as DU’s FSL office for their support and mentor, and DU’s Facilities staff for their efforts in keeping our chapter house in great shape.

Last, but not least we remember brothers Bruce Balonick class of 1970 and Doug Anton class of 1979. They will be missed but not forgotten, see page 39 of the spring 2023 edition for obituaries.

Iotas Worth_Spring2018 Dear Steve, Undergraduate and Alumni Brothers of Iota, What an unbelievable newsletter, year of achievement and so much more. I am overwhelmed by the news shared in the newsletter…I have never seen such an interesting Chapter newsletter in my 68 years of fraternity life as a Brother in Phi Alpha, Phi Sigma Delta or Zeta Beta Tau. Kudos to the undergraduates who had a spectacular year, to the Alumni who support the Chapter and the University and to the alumni Brothers who advise the Chapter and serve on the House Corporation. Steve, feel free to share my comments with one and all.
