I am writing in regards to the fine men of the Sigma Phi Epsilon Washington Gamma Chapter.
This spring a group of young men from the SigEp chapter of Eastern Washington University came to our aid in the removal of our 35-year-old rotting deck. My husband is just 39 years old and is permanently disabled from three bouts of cancer. We have had some serious home repair issues that have needed tending to and have been put on the back burner for a few years. But we had gotten to a point where our 3,000 square-foot deck was in so much disrepair that it had become a danger. I put up a notice on Facebook for help in tearing it out, and Jake Williams, ’16, a freshman from the chapter volunteered to come and help. He thought he could get a couple of guys from the house to help as well.
I was expecting two or three, but instead, 15 men from the chapter showed up. All of the young men came ready to work and got the monumental job done in just three hours. When the majority of work was finished, they began asking if there was more that I wanted done, and they ended up removing some sod and digging out a part of a flowerbed. I cannot tell you how impressed and how blessed I was to have this group of young men come and serve my family.
As an alumna of Alpha Gamma Delta, I know how important it is to the board and leadership in a national Fraternity to know the exceptional character and quality of their men and women. I just wanted to let you know that the men who came to my home were of the highest character, full of manners and willing hearts.
I congratulate you on the fine members that you have in the Washington Gamma Chapter. Thank you.
