Greetings Good Brothers of the Third District,
I am extremely blessed that the Supreme Basileus of the Universe has allowed me to serve as your District Representative of this great Fraternity! Being “the birthplace of Omega”, our District has produced many stalwart men who have had a positive impact upon me and our Fraternity. I am humbled and honored to be able to carry on that legacy.
As I transition in this position, my prayers are for the Brothers to continue to build upon this wonderful tradition set before them. The embracing of new technologies to make us more effective & efficient will be the key to our continuing growth and success. The desire to be more familiar with protocol, ritual and history will diminish a lot of heretical challenges that engulf our Fraternity. Then ultimately, if we can continue to “Live Our Creed”, we will be that proverbial “shining star” and lead from the front!
Brothers, thank you for entrusting me to serve as your leader. I want to again, express my sincere gratitude for your support and friendship. I am truly proud to have stood in a place where such Greatness arose from!
Yours in Omega,
DR’s Memorial Day 2017 Message
Good Day Good Brothers,
As we gather today at barbecues, parks, and beaches, I would ask that we all take a moment to remember why it is that we have this day. Let us not do so somberly, but PROUDLY…let us honor all our Veterans, dead and living. What this day and all the memorial parks around the nation do is not to let us forget the Veterans who have sacrifice to give us our sovereignty, but rather gives us a day and a place to honor their memory.
This day pays tribute to our Fallen Veterans contributions to American Freedom, it should remind all who hear the phrase “Freedom isn’t Free”! These are not just words, they are a value, a belief in the way of life that puts service for others above self. The American people cannot and should not ever forget what these Heroes did for us! We as a nation must keep faith with all our fallen Heroes and our Veterans. This then begs the question “How do we honor those who’ve sacrificed for us and our country?”
As we know, Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. has established March 12th of each year as Memorial Day. On this day, each chapter is expected to conduct an appropriate service to recall the memory of those members who have entered into Omega Chapter. We as Omega Men honor those lost in the way we care for those who returned home—and for their families and survivors. Thank you for all that you do for Veterans. It is a privilege to serve with each one of you in fulfilling our sacred mission.
On this Memorial Day, may God bless our Fraternity, the 3rd District, and our Veterans!
Bro. Kevin Brown
DR’s Mother’s Day 2017 Message
Greetings Brothers of the 3rd District,
There is no bond, none, stronger than that between mother and child; nothing can break this connection. Mothers are truly remarkable beings! Mothers are the ones who are make a positive difference! No one usually as strong and as effective an advocate on your behalf. Mothers have and continue to make a real difference in your life. And for this—we, at “the Premiere District” would like to say, “Thank You”!
Mothers are the sweetest gift from God to us, there is nothing more important! There is no way we can ever really thank our Mothers for all she does for us, nevertheless we must make it a habit to keep reminding ourselves of the various sacrifices they made while raising us!
On Mother’s Day, show your Love, Affection, Respect, and Appreciation as you commemorate one of the important days in their lives! Even once in a year, make her feel loved and well appreciated. That is our charge!
Bro. Kevin Brown
