Greetings Brothers,

While meandering, the History and Archives Committee came across the attached 8 pages in the Spring 1967 Oracle. If Brother Mazyck were around at the time, he might refer to them as “8 pages thoroughly indicative of the true Omega Spirit.” The initiated would do well to reflect upon and/or familiarize themselves with the history recorded thereon. From Pi Gamma’s promise to the Pettis example; from the first Black mayor of the City of Petersburg who received the first Scroll of Honor to Presidential appointments; from Maggie L. Walker to the Leigh Street YMCA; from winning homecoming floats to Brother Blue, the indefatigable traveling representative who  would surely have been there to witness how good and how pleasant it is. It’s all in there, and more. (Note: Content begins at the bottom of the first page).

Make it a great week Brothers. Travel safe to the 86th District Meeting. Be noble!
