We have all read the articles that use data and science to prove that maintaining friendships with the people you knew when you were younger as you get older can improve your health. That is not to say that keeping in touch with old friends and making plans to see each other is easy. Our careers, children, financial limitations and lack of time are all legitimate reasons for letting our relationships fall by the wayside. That being said, if there was ever a time for Lambda Chi Alumni Brothers to make the effort to reach out to old friends and try to plan a gathering or small get-together, it is now.

Fraternity Chapters that face adversity with their undergrads and their respective university go through tough times. It is hard to see your entire Chapter pay for the mistakes of a few. The GOOD NEWS is that we have not stopped our efforts to keep our Alumni connected. We have a direct line of contact to our Lambda Chi Brothers with our Alumni website www.lxalehigh.comCheck out the directory (you will need a login so if you don't have one, contact alumninews@affinityconnection.com and we will get you set up) and make sure your name is in there and not on our Lost List. Send us an update and let us know what has been happening in your life and by all means, reach out to a few Brothers and try to set aside some time for a little fun and reminiscing.

We all need to make sure that we try to keep our Brothers close and continue to plan gatherings, picnics and happy hours. It is important that we remember what we learned during our time with the Gamma-Psi Chapter at Lehigh. No matter what happens in the eyes of the university, the press or the public we are Brothers for life and our Alumni connections are still very much alive.

So, call that Brother you have been meaning to call. Set up that dinner party. Take pictures, share stories with each other and let us know how much fun it was so the rest of us get inspired to call our own friends. In the end, our friends and loved ones are the only thing that really matter. Let's get together!
