The Epsilon Beta Chapter initiated its Beta Epsilon Pledge Class on Sunday, April 23, 2017. District Governor Lentini presided at the ceremony, with Chapter Advisor Dr. Garver and large share of the undergraduate members of the chapter present. With this initiation Epsilon Beta's membership, since founding, grow to 192 members. We welcome Colin Burnite, Nicholas Dingler, Patrick Gilmore, Angus MacDougall, and Jeremy Rivera to the ranks of the brotherhood!
On Tuesday, April 18, 2017, Fr. James Lentini, Delaware Valley District Governor, honored the 2017 graduates of Epsilon Beta with a "Graduates Dinner." The dinner was held in South Philly's Villa di Roma Restaurant (at the heart of the Italian market). Present for the celebration were nine of the chapter's graduates, the chapter advisor Dr. Joel Garver, Chapter President Christian Abarca, and National Vice President Todd Cusato.
The Chapter graduates and guests were treated to some great Italian cuisine for both dinner and dessert. It was a terrific evening of fraternalism, and was a nice Italianate way to send off our graduates.
Congratulations to all of our Epsilon Beta graduates of 2017, those present at the dinner, and those who couldn't make it -- success to all of you in your future endeavors! Faciamus!
