Awesome job guys!
The Alpha Tau Omega fraternity was founded on September 11, 1865. On September 11, 2001 two ATOs lost their lives in the Twin Towers. Today is a good day to re-read and reflect upon our creed.
The Creed of Alpha Tau Omega
To bind men together in a brotherhood based upon eternal and immutable principles, with a bond as strong as right itself and as lasting as humanity; to know no North, no South, no East, no West, but to know man as man, to teach that true men the world over should stand together and contend for supremacy of good over evil; to teach, not politics, but morals; to foster, not partisanship, but the recognition of true merit wherever found; to have no narrower limits within which to work together for the elevation of man than the outlines of the world: these were the thoughts and hopes uppermost in the minds of the founders of the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity.

On April 19th, 2012 the Zeta Mu chapter of Alpha Tau Omega gathered at the Oakwood cemetery in Huntsville, Texas for the signature event of the semester. The chapter holds a ceremony every year to honor General Sam Houston and replace the tattered flags flying over his grave with new ones. This year our key note speaker was Mayor of Huntsville Mac Woodward. The event was a huge success with various members of the community attending.

I am not easily fooled…I usually can sniff out a plot when it is underway, but this time you caught me completely unawares…I was blown away with the recognition and generosity shown to me at the reunion…the shotguns have been a wish of mine, since the old heirloom family 16 ga. Model 12 was burned up while I was at Sam…Duffer’s buffalo painting will occupy a prominent place in my office, and the Little Bird caricature statue was just off the charts…INCREDIBLE!
