On Saturday, November 12, 2016, the Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti-Inkster Alumni Chapter partnered with the University of Michigan Cancer Center to provide a Men’s Fellowship Breakfast. The community really showed out with their participation and 30 Kappas from the Chapter were in attendance. This was the largest attended Men’s Fellowship Breakfast.
Special thanks goes to Senior Vice Polemarch Brother Michael Kinloch and the event chairman Brother David Wooten for their leadership and participation. The 30 Brothers and other men enjoyed a hot breakfast, music supplied by Brother Rod Kilgore,and a great presentation from our own Brother Dr. Scott Mial. A raffle was held with gifts that included an autographed football from coach Jim Harbaugh (U of M Football team) and four $25.00 Visa gift cards which was donated by the Chapter. Most importantly the topics covered hopefully, will lead to or continue to foster better health for the community and for us as Kappa men.
One’s health is extremely important and the Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti-Inkster Alumni chapter recognizes that health education is beneficial to everyone. Being aware of the best health practices will lead to longevity of life and prosperous health.
All men in the community are welcome to join us our Saturday, November 12, 2016 for a free men’s fellowship breakfast and health summit. The event will be held at the Washtenaw Community College Morris Lawrence Building, 4800 E. Huron River Dr., Ann Arbor, MI 48105.
