    It is with a heavy heart that we said our goodbyes, to National Founder, Elliott Bazan. For those who knew Elliott, he was head over heels for his wife, and loved spending his time outside of work spending time with his wife and son.. I had the privilege of growing up and spending summers with Elliott's family and my parents' Texas Tech alumni friends. When I think back to the yard games and dinner table conversations, Elliott's laughter always stands out among the  voices. Always laughing, always joking, always teasing, but always concerned about the well-being of his friends. I had the unique honor of having him as a fraternity brother, an "uncle," a godfather, and a great friend. He will be greatly missed.

    Thank you to the brothers that were able to join in his celebration of life in San Marcos, to those who reached out, and to those who kept his family in your thoughts and prayers.

    A Message from your New Chairman

    Rudy Ramirez: 

    Chairman’s Note

    Brothers it has been a great start to the year and April was packed full of brotherhood events. We drove to San Antonio to Play in the 4Links Classic and returned Saturday to watch the Silver Boot Series Baseball game with the World Champs against the Astros. The tailgate and game were awesome and if you missed it be ready to get your tickets early next year. Our Membership drive officially ends in April, but brothers are encouraged to join all year round. So get signed up and join the Original Alumni Association of Omega Delta Phi. I hope you can make it to at least one event this year to rekindle that burning desire. Our Service Projects are coming in August, October, November and December so get ready.

    Thank you brothers for all the support and brotherhood. Hope to see you out at an event or two.

    In All Eternal Brotherhood

    Rudy Ramirez

    Chairman ‘24



    We wish the best to all of our members that are celebrating their birthdays in April and May!

March starts off with our meeting March 6th (Virtual). Our Conejo Picnic and Paintball day are coming as well. We have 53 Members signed up and are still in the midst of our Membership drive.

                    Brothers I want to thank you all for a great year so far. Without you all, we wouldn’t be able to do all the things we do. The month of October was full of activities. We had another Great Knights Classic Golf Tournament that raised over $12000 for scholarships. We had a number of successful fundraisers including Texas Rangers ALCS and World Series ticket raffles, and football pick ‘em for the first half of the NFL season. We had a great turnout in Houston for our tailgate and soccer game between FC Dallas and the Houston Dynamo. Brotherhood has stepped up big time. We are now in our big philanthropy part of the year with our Thanksgiving food drive in full effect and our Elves Toy drive on the horizon. The year is winding down, but our work is still going strong. Your continued support is greatly appreciated

                    I hope you can Join us in our continued work for the community !!
