ZXAA 2010 Reunion

Come Join the Celebration

Our Association, Zeta Chi Alumni Association (ZXAA) was started 5 years ago with the 1st objective to re colonize ZX with Missouri State University (MSU). After a 5 year effort with many struggles we have been successful in this objective and ZX will return to MSU in the Spring of 2011. Without the support and determination of the ZXAA the return of ZX would not have occurred. This success will be celebrated the weekend of September 17-19, 2010 in Springfield, MO. ZX is requesting your attendance at the reunion. This is the first time in our history all generations of ZX will be asked to come back and unite as one to celebrate ZX.

In addition, we will be celebrating ZXAA 5th anniversary and the “return to service” of our 1940 Ford fire truck. Our truck is currently under repair, lead by Kim Handcock. Repairs are going well and last report they were driving it around the parking lot!

This will be the weekend to unite with all ZX, celebrate our history and the future. You are asked to attend and make this the weekend ZX alumni regroup for the success of ZX at MSU.

Rally Around the Truck” campaign is still under way and is critical to achieving our objective to repair our fire truck. This is the only time in our 5 years ZXAA has asked alumni for any money except for annual dues. No contributions are too small or too big. We ask everyone to donate at some level. Donations should be made at the “Rally Around the Truck” link. Jeff Layman is chairman of this campaign. Jeff is committed to our success and your help in achieving this goal is appreciated.

Each year ZXAA requests your membership in the association. Annual dues are $50. Each alumni is asked to “join the association”. Dues allow ZXAA to continue to communicate with alumni and hold events related to ZX. “Membership is the key to our success.” Alumni may “join the association” by using the link provided.

Formal invitations will be coming out soon. Mark your calendars for September 17-19, 2010 for ZXAA reunion in Springfield, MO. Be sure your information is correct on our site, “Are you Alumni”, as that is the address it will be sent. On behalf of the entire ZXAA committee, I look forward seeing everyone at the reunion!

Missouri State University Homecoming

Homecoming at Missouri State University will be a special time and the weekend of the Zeta Chi Alumni Association annual meeting. The weekend will be full of events and much social time to spend with those you have not visited with in many years. Saturday morning will be our business meeting, and I encourage everyone to be a part of this annual event.

Bob and Pam Mays will be making the weekend. Everyone is looking forward to visiting with Bob. Many others have already RSVP, this looks like the largest turn out for our annual meetings.

If you have not received an invitation, we either do not have your information or it is incorrect. You can go to “Are you a ZX Alumni” and update your information. The directory is available to alumni, and to date we have over 350 names listed. I have invitations available and will send you one if you email me your information.

All efforts of the Association continue to be for recolonization of Zeta Chi to Missouri State University. This process is difficult. Communication between the Association and Headquarters with Missouri State University continues. We are not unsettled by any of the events so far, we are ready when the opportunity presents itself for our return to campus. I will cover much more of the re colonization process at our meeting.

The Association committee would like to invite all alumni to attend our annual meeting in October. It is important to “Join the Association” and renew your annual dues. Your support is what makes all this happen. I would suggest using the Paypal option on this site.

Once again, thanks for your support to the Association. Please stay in touch and contact me with your questions.
