The Des Moines – Central Iowa Alumni Chapter of Delta Sigma Pi held its February happy hour on Tuesday at GoodSons in the Beaverdale neighborhood. Several alums in attendance had never been there before, and thought it was a good place to go. Others thought it was a good place as well. One person non-affiliated with Deltasig was celebrating a birthday and the YNPN Des Moines group was hosting a social.
At the happy hour brothers caught up on how the year has been going so far, the latest gossip from “The Bachelor”, and talked about future plans for the alumni chapter. Besides Halsey and GCC, ideas for other events, meeting locations / happy hour locations were discussed. And the discussion occurred casually over beer and food from the impressive menu. One of the bar patrons at GoodSons for the birthday party was the father of a member of the alumni chapter. So we got to hear about how this brother was a perfect child… until 8th grade when this individual started giving the teachers attitude and was poised to go down the “wrong track”. But then by 9th grade, this person got back on the right track and has been excelling ever since!
Of course GoodSons is known for having tables made from chalkboards, so after chalk was brought to the table, the brothers in attendance enjoyed doodling.
Doodling… and writing…
Alumni are invited to take this survey regarding Alumni Programming at LEAD. (not necassary that you attended a LEAD to take the survey).
GCC is coming up in August of 2015. Because Schaumburg, IL is so close to Des Moines, this GCC could be a good one for Central Iowa Alumni to attend.
Registration is going up in March, so save $100 by registering in February.
Des Moines had many things to celebrate in 2014. There is a cool video to be found here along with other info from the Greater Des Moines Partnership about what’s been achieved by our city.
