Ronnie Caldwell, another of the Zeta Mu brotherhood has passed on to the Chapter Eternal. My dad passed away just a year ago and I am reminded of the issues to which attention requires. While flowers and plants enhance the service, they become another chore for the family. I gather from Kuch that Ronnie’s widow, Barbara, would be honored to have donations made to assist our newest Brothers with their college expenses. If you are inclined to make a donation in lieu of flowers, please mail your tax deductible contribution made out to SHSU-ATO Scholarship Fund (% Rick Hanna; PO Box 25; Huntsville, TX 77342) with a remark as to whom the memorial is being made. The University will send a letter to the family recognizing the gift. Last week I carried over $2,000 in memorials for Orin Covell and Steve Robinson
Under current IRS regulations your contributions to the active Z M Chapter at Sam Houston State, or to our Z M Alumni Association are not allowable deductions. I suggest that if you are seeking a tax deduction, that you consider a gift to the ATO Foundation, for the benefit of the active Zeta Mu Chapter. The Foundation maintains an account for the benefit of the Z M Chapter. Funds from that account helped send three members of the chapter to LeaderShape 2010 this year. The Chapter’s access to these funds requires approval of the Chapter BOT.
