    Omega Chapter

    100th Anniversary

    Less Than Nine Weeks Away!

    Brothers,

     

    Our most important celebration ever is happening soon. We've now been making better men at 6 Strafford Avenue for one hundred years — a major milestone! Please come join us at the Omni Mt. Washington Hotel to re-connect, share stories, and have some laughs, with the spectacular Presidential Mountain Range in your back yard. This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime event for all Omega brothers and significant others. Be a part of something special!

     

     

    To date, nearly 150 attendees (brothers, significant others, and actives) have made their room reservations and banquet deposits. In fact, The Omni needed to set aside an additional block of rooms for Omega 100 reservations.

     

    Interested brothers who have not yet made reservations should avoid any further delays and make those reservations ASAP! Per the Omni, reservation requests received after 5 PM on Tuesday March 19 will be accepted based on guest room availability at the "prevailing transient rates."  In other words, current discounted room rates would be lost.

     

    Congrats to those brothers initiated in the 1960s, 70s and 80s for leading the early charge on making reservations. Brothers from the 1990s, 2000s and 2010s are starting to come on strong!
