The Des Moines – Central Iowa Alumni Chapter held its first event in the new fiscal year (July 2016 – June 2017).
The July happy hour was 7/21 at the relatively new Taco Hangover (formerly Saints) in West Des Moines. An excellent crowd was in attendance and much enjoyment was had by all.
The evening featured the typical food eating, and lighthearted socialization with several of the regular members and several newbies. Some discussion included upcoming events and current fashion and trends. As the happy hour was winding down it was suggested an encore session take place at the local frozen yogurt shop, so a stop was made. The only question was, “What was tastier? The tacos or the fro-yo?”
Be sure to check out the calendar page for info on the August Happy Hour (Thurs. 8/18) at Twisted Vine Brewery in West Des Moines. And see FB.

Once again, the Twin Cities Alumni Chapter of Delta Sigma Pi hosted a summer pig roast (an annual tradition). The 2016 event was Saturday, June 25 at Antlers Park in Lakeville, Minnesota. Of the 48 people registered, 3 traveled from Des Moines. Also of note was 1 brother from Colorado and another from Nebraska. Several former central Iowa residents who now live in the twin cities attended the pig roast.
The food was excellent. Divine Swine was the caterer (same as in recent years).
There were many yard games played and much fun was had that afternoon. And there were even brothers who went swimming at the beach! The weather was very hot for the picnic and there had been some storms in the area the night before.
A great time was had by everyone in attendance. Including those brothers from Des Moines! Thank you, TCAC.
