the Bowdoin Alpha Delta Phi Society Alumni Association will hold its annual meeting on Saturday, July 27th at 10:30 a.m. at the House. Among the topics that we will discuss are:

  • The Bowdoin Alpha Delta Phi Literary Fund (good news to report!)
  • FDR Cup nominations process and this year’s recipient
  • Chapter archives preservation project – a productive collaboration with Bowdoin’s Special Collections
  • Vote to Ratify Amendments to the Alpha Delta Phi Society Constitution
  • Planning for future reunions and alumni engagement

The annual meeting will also focus on our ongoing role in the national Alpha Delta Phi Society—where the Bowdoin Chapter continues to lead.

Brothers will be able to participate in the annual meeting virtually from around the world, provided that they have an Internet connection. Please contact me if you will be unable to make it to the House on July 27th in person, but still want to attend the annual meeting online.

Friday and Saturday Bar Service:
Both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages will be served by Bowdoin College at the House, and this is covered in your fee. There will be open bars at the House on both Friday and Saturday evenings.

There will be tours of the Art Museum and a special viewing of Bowdoin Alpha Delta Phi history at the Bowdoin Special Collections. All are free to attendees.

Saturday Sing:
There will be a scheduled Sing on Saturday following the Banquet, when all ye good Alpha Delts can tune your throats and sing some great Alpha Delta Phi melodies, Bowdoin College classics, and some more recent additions to the Society songbook. Songbooks will be provided for those who may be a little rusty. Perfect pitch is not a requirement.
