On May 11th, the Pike Iota Delta chapter had a banquet for the beta theta class at Zaharako’s Ice Cream Parlor in Columbus, Indiana. Congratulations to the newly initiated brothers! George Mammarella MC’ed the banquet with particular tact while Michael Johnson presented around half of the awards. The delicious dinner was topped off with either a strawberry shortcake or brownie sundae ice cream treat. The brothers ended up dancing, serenading, and socializing in the upstairs Green River room after dinner. Thanks to everyone for another great banquet and thanks to Zaharako’s for the great hospitality.
Several brothers journeyed down to Clearwater, Florida for Spring Break 2013. The Pikes chose to serve others on their Spring Break trip by doing construction work on houses, assisting Habitat for Humanity’s efforts to end substandard housing. The group performed many tasks including trimming, truss support, painting, caulking, and framing. Leaders of the project from Habitat for Humanity commended the work ethic of the Pike men and thanked them for their energies.
