Letter from the President of Shad Club #62
SHAD Club #62 was organized in March
of 2007 under the leadership of Gamma Omega's President Mary Fairley, and
Regional Director Evelyn Lee. The club consists of husbands of active
members of the Gamma Omega Chapter of Eta Phi Beta Sorority Inc.
The stated purpose of the club is
"to be positive role models to young men in our community." To
help achieve that goal, our club sponsors an Annual Oratorical and Essay
Contest featuring young males speaking on a theme chosen by the club. The
club awards cash prizes to participants of the contest. The purpose of
the contest is to help young men develop skills in oral presentation, research
and poise in public speaking. The contest has been a tremendous success
and is the top priority for our club.
SHAD Club #62 also sponsors a young
male to attend the Men and Boys Retreat of New Hope Missionary Baptist Church.
Their retreat is to bond men and boys spiritually.
Over the years SHAD Club #62 has
sent aid to the victims of Hurricane Katrina, the Haitian Disaster, and sent
donations to Links, Inc.
SHAD Club #62 continues to strive to
be an aid to the community efforts of Gamma Omega Chapter. There is a
tremendous working relationship between the SHAD Club and the Sorority Chapter.
We look forward to positive events happening in our community due to the
efforts of SHAD Club #62 and Eta Phi Beta Sorority Inc.
SHAD Club #62
