Iota Chapter Suspended due to Bogus Covid violation

As of September 2020, our chapter has been suspended due to an alleged Covid policy violation.

This suspension will last for one year, and although the brothers can still live in the house, the one punishment that affects us the most is that we cannot rush new members for the Spring 2021 semester. This may not be so bad, as the way things are going, there may not be a rush anyway.

2020 Projects

2020 was a busy year!  We installed a new boiler to replace the one installed in 1990, and also sleeved the chimney. The 15 year old stove was replaced with a state-of-the art Southland model. 2nd front windows were replaced and a new keypad-style lockset was installed on the front door (to match the one installed in 2019 on the back door). A new refrigerator was purchased for the commissary closet as well.

2019 Major Projects

 Three major projects were completed Summer 2019!

After decades of band-aid repairs, 2nd front bathroom shower was gutted to the studs and redone. New shower is also larger than previous one as there were 2 layers of walls.

The back door finally yielded, after many years of service. An off-the-shelf size did not work, so Ed built a new one from FULL 2" thick pine. Hoboken Lock installed a pin-pad entry lock which is working so well, we plan to add it to the front door also.

The exhaust fan in the kitchen was sub-standard at best, so a new kitchen hood with exterior mounted fan was installed. Replacing the 15 year old range is next on the list!

New Kitchen Base Cabinet

In 2017, we purchased a new kitchen base cabinet (10' commercial grade stainless steel) to replace to old, dilapidated metal cabinets that were original to the house.
