The chapter hosted its annual Thanksgiving Dinner on Thursday November 17th in the great room of the house. The house reached capacity as turnout was unprecedented with over 70 brothers and 50 potential new members in attendance! Gamma Rho’s Thanksgiving Dinner is widely regarded as the best on campus and serves as the chapter’s staple event for fall quarter. The evening consisted of hors d’oeuvres in the chapter room, a three course dinner of salad, turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie.
The opening prayer was given by sophomores John Cowgill (’11) and Sam Ide (’11) and Patrick Schnettler (’10) gave the presidential address. Scholarships totaling $1,000 were also presented to three potential new members: Eddie Gaitan, Pete Jourgensen, and Brad Winters. All recipients went through an application and interview process. The Garnet and Gold Scholarship Fund sponsored the scholarships.
Senior Recruitment Czar, Nathan Jimenez (’10) and Dave Richards (’11), the Junior Recruitment Czar, did a tremendous job getting over 50 freshman and transfer students to the event. A big thank you to David Giljohann for assisting with the event as well! More pictures can be found by clicking here.
