2004 Alumni Association Activities

The Kappa Tetarton Alumni Association, Inc.

Brothers of Kappa Tet,

I would like to thank you for your continued support for our Association.  I especially want to thank our donors and dues paying members for their generosity.  The Kappa Tetarton chapter is moving forward in their quest to make the Phi Sig chapter at SIU the best in the nation.  As alumni, you play an integral role in helping the chapter to thrive.  Your association continues to provide the necessary assistance and guidance that ensures the growth of our chapter.  Thus, it is with great anticipation that I invite you to attend the upcoming 2004 association activities.  

We are hosting our second annual summer meet for undergraduates, alumni and their families on June 5, 2004 at 11:00, at Jaycee Grove in Tinley Park, Illinois.  Jaycee Grove is one of the most popular picnic spots in Tinley Park, boasting a spacious picnic shelter, horseshoe pits, miniature golf course, batting cages, and plenty of open spaces.  In addition, we will order a catered lunch again this year.  Keep an eye out for an invitation and more information for this event as summer draws near.

The SIU Homecoming is October 2, 2004.  The association has reserved thirteen cabins and the banquet hall at the Giant City Lodge for Homecoming weekend.  The banquet will feature the lodge’s acclaimed fried chicken family style dinner and a full service cash bar.  The association has paid a deposit to reserve the following cabins:

  • Five “Historic” cabins at $60 per night includes one room with two full beds; and

  • eight “Prairie” cabins at $70 per night includes one queen bed, one full sized pullout in the living room and a small refrigerator.  

All rooms have a full bath, phone and a TV.  Rates based on single or double occupancy with $5 per additional person. 

Many of the local Carbondale hotels are already booked solid.  If you would like to reserve a cabin at the lodge, please contact us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .  We have already paid for the first nights rental for all of the rooms.  If you wish to stay at a cabin, you will need to send Pat Fornes a $60 or $70 check, depending on the type of room you would like. This check will reimburse the association for one nights rental. You are responsible for paying the lodge for any additional nights.  When making your request, tell us which type of cabin you would prefer.  A Deposit for the “Historic” cabin is $60, and a deposit for the “Prairie” cabin is $70.  We request that you contact us to reserve a cabin as soon as possible.

The address to send payment is:

On a final note, we would like to thank our members who have already paid their 2004 Association dues.  In order to continue to sponsor events, such as those above, we encourage each of you to become dues paying members of the Association.  Dues are just $25 a year and we are always grateful for any additional donation you choose to give.

Thank you, and Damn Proud!
