Scores of Brothers gathered with our National President and Vice President (Christopher Mancusi and Jim Miller) to honor the Fraternity's Italian Heritage by marching in New York's Columbus Day Parade on October 12, 2015. This annual tradition --which dates back many years-- is always well-supported by brothers in the New York City area. In recent year's Alpha Phi Delta has had large marching contingents, floats, and Italian pride abounding. The pictures below show our brotherly contingent in the parade as well as in front of St. Patrick's Cathedral. This year, National Vice President Jim Miller travelled from the western Pennsylvania to partake in the marching and merriment of this annual event. National President Christopher Mancusi and other officers, alumni leaders, and undergraduate brothers were on the scene. Columbus Day continues to be a very important day in the life and heritage of Alpha Phi Delta.
