February 19, 2010, i was home. No gig. Its was cold and snowy. I wished someone would’ve organized a winter blues fest. I waited 15 minutes. Wish didn’t come true. So, I organized this one!…..
I hope to see you there!

Merry Christmas and All That Jazz

Merry Christmas and All That Jazz

By Bruce Smith, PDK National President 2018-19

Hello brothers and sweethearts. Sarah and I had a wonderful trip to Florida Alpha Lambda. We flew in early enough on Wednesday that I was able to attend their business meeting in the evening. President Chris Lawrence ran a great meeting.

The Chapter was putting the finishing touches on the Pasco County BBQ event for that coming weekend. Every brother at the meeting volunteered for a task to make sure everything was covered for the weekend. I was able to sit back and watch the brotherhood take on such a monumental task with ease. e brotherhood working together in unison made me very proud as National President.

This was my first trip out of Indiana since the National Convention. I cannot accurately describe the feeling one gets when they are treated with such respect and pampering. All of the brothers made sure that Sarah and I were well taken care of. It is almost embarrassing for a man like me. I have never been in a position to receive the truly kind, caring and loving treatment I received at Alpha Lambda. Thank you brothers, I really felt the brotherhood and the love from you all.

The cooking event on Saturday was unreal. Emir and PNP George Taylor will have a full report on the event. One of the bonuses of being the National President is that I got first dibs on the meats after the judges were done with their sampling. My God, those teams sure did cook up some of the best chicken, ribs, pork medallions and brisket I have ever eaten. I would recommend going to this event to any PDK brother or sweetheart. Again, thank you Florida Alpha Lambda for making this humble Indiana guy feel like a King for several days! You guys ROCK!

It was so sad to hear about the passing of PNP Greg Trombly. I spent five years in the SEC chairs with Greg. It would be hard to find anyone that loved to travel more than Brother Greg. His enthusiasm and love for Phi Delta Kappa was off the charts. His smiles and hugs will be missed by all who ever took the time to get to know him. R.I.P. my brother, my friend.

Christmas will almost be upon us when this magazine gets to your hands or computer screen. This is the time of year that families get together and share their love of each other over meals, drinks, caroling and present-opening. If you know of a brother or sweetheart that may be alone on Christmas please open your heart and your home to them and show them some love. God Bless you all and your families. And God Bless PDK!

My article next month I will fill you all in on our trip to the Hospitality Chapter in Meridian Mississippi. I know the brothers and sweethearts will show us a great time. I love traveling to PDK events and meeting old friends and making new ones. What could be better than that?
