Dear Fellow DU Brothers,
As we enter the Holiday season, I wanted to take this opportunity to update you on your Alumni Board’s efforts to re-open the Demosthenean Chapter of Delta Upsilon Fraternity at Bucknell University.
In response to our membership outreach this past year, we have inducted a total of eight new members to our Alumni Board. We extend a warm welcome to our new inductees who include Chris Retzler ’93, J.D. Moriarty ’94, Tom Cook ’78, Steve Harber ‘85, Kevin Nicholson ’85, Andy Loeshelle ’15, Scott Stieler ’86 and Ed Braniff ’86. Welcome aboard gentlemen!
Since our last communication, we have been working with representatives from the University and Delta Upsilon National on a schedule for our return to campus. At this time, we are in agreement that we will be looking to welcome an incoming sophomore pledge class to Delta Upsilon in the Fall Term of 2018 and we will be looking for the delivery of our new Chapter House in the Fall Term of 2019. We have been very fortunate to receive the cooperation and support of the University and National in re-establishing our presence at Bucknell.
Irrespective of the recent addition of eight new Board members, we would like to continue to grow the current membership of the Alumni Board. Therefore, if you are at all interested in serving on our Board, please contact me or any other member of the Alumni Board for additional information.
As I have mentioned previously, the primary focus of the Alumni Board at this time is to ensure the re-opening of our House and the successful return of Delta Upsilon to Bucknell. To this end, we would like to hear from you regarding your thoughts, concerns and wishes regarding the re-opening of DU at Bucknell. Please feel free to reach out to me or any other of the Alumni Board members listed below.
John J. Zaharchuk ‘81
