Brothers from the ’60s Share Laughs and Memories at Reunion in Big Fork
On Homecoming weekend October 13-15, Montana Beta celebrated 90 continuous years on the University of Montana campus. Several activities were canceled because of the cool weather, but our Saturday morning pancake breakfast and parade watching event came off successfully as well as our Saturday night banquet and dance party.
The pancake breakfast was an opportunity for us to honor many Little Sisters of Minerva in attendance. They included many of the original Little Sisters, as well as later members. Thanks to Dawn Pederson and Flo Smith for organizing their reunion. If you haven’t joined us for our pancake breakfast, I would suggest you do so next year at Homecoming. It is always a good opportunity to see old friends.
Many of the brothers and wives attended the Grizzly football game and then joined about 100 others at the Holiday Inn for the banquet. Larry Brown ’54 came from Colorado and was the oldest brother to attend. He regaled many of the actives with stories from the past.
At the banquet several brothers received awards, two of which were given to Chapter Advisor Scott Johnson ’81 and Sigma Alpha Epsilon House Corporation President Jim Mountain ’81. Scott and Jim were given the Ron Cole Alumni Fidelity Award for their steadfast devotion to the high ideals of Sigma Alpha Epsilon and our home at the University of Montana. Congratulations to Scott and Jim. Rob Quist and the Great Northern Band then took over and dancing and good conversation was enjoyed by all. Thanks go to John Greener ’79 and all the work he did to pull this off.
In the Bonds,
Dick Ford ’64
