Greetings Brothers of the Mighty Third District,
As we prepare for Thanksgiving and the holidays that follow, we should pause and reflect on the many blessings that we enjoy with our loved ones, our freedoms as Americans, and the privilege of serving our great Fraternity.
A celebration rooted in history, this American holiday began with a proclamation from George Washington in 1789. Thanksgiving recalls the humble gratitude of our ancestors for the freedom and abundance of a new world at a time when their very survival was anything but certain. We give our thanks for their courage and perseverance in building the strongest and most generous democracy the world has ever seen.
So, at a time when we traditionally give thanks, allow me to thank you all for your hard work in helping to keep our District functioning effectively and efficiently. I, for one, am thankful for our District Leadership. The Executive Council, for assisting me in maintaining good standards, order and discipline. The Former District Representatives for always providing me with excellent mentorship and guidance. The District Committee Chairmen, for making sure all our programs run smoothly. The Basili for guiding their perspective Chapters to success.
Additionally, I am also thankful for the support of our families and friends throughout the year. I hope you all enjoy the spending special time with your love ones over the holiday season. Please know that I deeply appreciate your dedicated service to our Fraternity and uplifting our communities. Long-live the Third District and long-live The Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. Have a blessed and safe Thanksgiving and holiday season.
Brother Kevin Brown
29th Third District Representative
