San Diego Gamma Zetas Get Together

San DiegoOn Saturday, August 31, several San Diego area Gamma Zeta’s got together for lunch at Randy Jones Sports Bar in San Diego. The get together was prompted by Dane Luhrsen, Gamma Zeta’s Director of Alumni Relations visit to the area to watch his son’s Eastern Illinois Panther Football team play San Diego State (EIU won 40-19). Ed Ptacek ’54, Dr. Bill Mohlenbrock ’60, The Honorable Dick Murphy ’65, Brian Rawers ’78 joined Dane ’77 for lunch. This is just the tip of the ice berg of Gamma Zeta’s who have settled in San Diego and have lived in the area for years. Only Bill Mohlenbrock and Dick Murphy had known each other except for very recent ATO connections.Continue reading

Volunteers needed for Gamma Zeta Alumni Kitchen Committee

Early indications are that our decision to outsource facility management of Gamma Zeta to Alpha Management has been successful. We’re now taking a look at our kitchen and food service operation to see if there are better options than our current approach. We’re looking for a few interested alumni to form a committee to assess our current operation and take a look at some outsourcing options and make a recommendation to the Board of Trustees as to the optimum approach. We’re not looking for alumni to manage the kitchen long term… no grease traps to clean or dishes to wash… just some high level support for a decision around approach. This will probably result in a handful of conference calls and ideally at least one visit to the house. Please email Dane Luhrsen at if you’d be interested in helping out.
