Memphis Alumni, Collegiates Welcome Grand Council
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – The Grand Council, along with members of the TKE Professional Staff, were welcomed by the Memphis area alumni and collegiates “Elvis-style.” The group gathered at the Elvis Presley Car Museum following their visit at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital earlier in the day. More than 50 people turned out for fellowship and fraternalism.
After the attendees had a chance to view part of Elvis’s car collection, they were able to enjoy some light hors d'oeuvres and drinks. Grand Prytanis Herb Songer (Alpha-Upsilon, Fort Hays State Univ.) spoke on the state of the Fraternity - its growth both in membership and involvement, as well as our renewed partnership with St. Jude. He specifically recognized the Pi-Epsilon Chapter (Christian Borthers Univ.), thanking them for their extensive work on Building Better Men for a Better World. Their involvement with St. Jude and other non-profits in the area have shown the community TKE’s commitment to service.
The Grand Council continued to meet Saturday on other matters facing the TKE Nation.
About Elvis Presley Car Museum:
Elvis loved cars and the Elvis Presley Car Museum displays some of his favorites. Stroll down a tree-lined street with a drive-in theater and see over 33 vehicles owned by Elvis. Highlights include his famous Pink Cadillac, Harley-Davidson motorcycles, Stutz Blackhawks, a 1975 Dino Ferrari, a 1956 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible, the red MG from Blue Hawaii and more. Also, see some of Elvis’ favorite motorized toys, including a go-cart, dune buggy, motorized three-wheelers and a pedal car. Some newer additions to the Elvis Presley Car Museum include his Rolls Royce sedans, 6-door Mercedes Benz limousine and Elvis' John Deere 4010 tractor that he used on his ranch and at Graceland.
The Offices of the Grand Chapter and Grand Council extend a heartfelt thanks to the Memphis area alumni and collegiates for a terrific evening.
