The Belmar Lot
When the property atop Fraternity row was acquired – with the help & guidance of Brother Mel Rexroad – a party was planned. The location had been obtained in a swap for another site farther east – near the Delta Gamma house. News of the swap – and the associated feeling of stepping up the ladder – were generally unknown.
A Friday (I think) PM was chosen. A large star was constructed and flares attached thereto. I think “the bell” went along. As some campus event tailed off a small group of brothers – some lubricated – arrived on newly acquired turf, set up & ignited the flares, rang the bell and basked in newfound status.
