Alumni Association Update:
The alumni association held their first meeting September 20th in Portland, ME. The officers are as follows:
Chairman: Mark Mercier
Operations Director: Ryan Dean
Vice-Chair (Bangor Region): Marc Caldwell
Vice-Chair (Portland Region): Russ Fitzpatrick
Vice-Chair (Southern New England): Scot Reynolds

The next meeting will be homecoming, October 25th. Dues will be $50 the first year and $100 per year after that. This is a very important asset to the Fraternity and we hope all Pike alumni will join and continue to support Pi Kappa Alpha for years to come.
Pike House Update:
As some of you may know, the Pike house is in need of significant repair. Our chapter advisor James Russell and house advisor Matt Leclair have received a loan from Pike Nationals to repair the 2nd and 3rd floor decks. While the 3rd floor deck is taken apart, four new 3rd-floor rooms will be constructed. Increasing the capacity of the house will hopefully generate enough income to allow for more renovations and repairs in the near future. The project is tentatively scheduled to be framed up by homecoming and complete by the end of the semester. For more info contact Matt or Jamie.
• This fall we gave out 18 bids, and now have 18 new pledges thanks to the hard work of our rush chairmen Kevin Bailey and Chris Anderson.
• Treasurer Tom Dickens has been working very hard to help the chapter transition to operating the house budget as well as the chapter budget, and is working with Matt Leclair to ensure the financial stability of the chapter.
• We have already logged a significant number of community service hours and we continue to dominate athletics, with a huge win of the flag football championship over SigEp
• Our active roster is at 48 brothers
Feel free to contact the chapter any time, and please let us know of any alumni news you wish to share. Also keep an eye on www.umaine.edu/pike for new material.
We hope to see everyone at homecoming this year!
