Dear Brothers and Sisters,
In keeping with the core service principle of Tau Sigma Chi, I’m proud to forward this request for funding assistance for the Turtle actives spring project. If you want to make a more sizable donation and/or desire to donate through a recognized IRS tax deductible organization, send your check to the Tau Sigma Chi Alumni Association c/o Harry Flanagan, TEXAA Treasurer, 1024 Oaktree Trail, Lake Villa, IL 60046. Please note the funds are for the Nkume Primary School. In turn the Alumni Association will send in one check with all donated funds.
Kurt Lehrmann, President TEXAA
The Turtles and Carthage Greek life is banding together to raise $10,000 to donate to the Nkume Primary School in South Africa. We are using GoFundMe.come to collect the money. This is the link to the fundraiser: https://www.gofundme.com/nkume-primary-school-fundraiser?sharetype=teams&member=41534&rcid=r01-152250703894-52e2023d8aec4efa&pc=ot_co_campmgmt_w . We need to wrap up the campaign before we leave for summer so it’s ending mid-May. We are very lucky to have an alumni network as involved with our activities as you all have been.
Sam Mischio, President Tau Sigma Chi

Thanks to Brother Roger Bain, ’70 for scanning and sending Composites for 1967-1968, 1968-1969, and 1969-1970. All were added to the Composites page.
The Alumni Association is working on a new logo. Here’s a preview:
Here’s some additional info regarding the logo.
It’s really a logo for the Alumni Association, so we’re not really messing with the frat’s original logo. Also, we needed to ‘update’ it, because no one could locate the origial artwork!
The Greek translates as “You bet your sweet ass!”
The latest edition of The Carthaginian listed the passing of Turtle Brother, Gary Fink, in February.
Here is a link to his obituary:
We received word that Dr. Wayne Baker, ’85 passed away on May 12, 2017.
Service are still pending, but here’s the link to the Obituary/Funeral Home.
Dr. Wayne Baker
Rest in Peace, Brother.
We just added a new “Donations” page to the website (see Menu at top of page).
Since we recently got our 501(c)3 designation, all donations are tax deductible.
We’re also working on adding a PayPal account/link to make donating even easier.
The Winter 2017 edition of The Carthaginian reported the May 2016 death of Thomas Hardt, ’65 in Fort Lauderdale, FL.
Could not find an obituary.
John Sladek, ’65, recently uploaded these pictures of old t-shirts and sweatshirts to our Facebook page. We thought we would share them here as well. Enjoy!
