A Founders Day Like No Other
As we continue to stay safe, distance socially, and refrain from large gatherings, Phi Delta Theta is taking this opportunity to creatively celebrate Founders Day 2021. Of course, we know that our local chapters and alumni clubs are also adapting their own Founders Day celebrations, and we hope that you’ll support their plans.
March 15 is Founder Robert Morrison’s birthday. This date became Founders Day because the December 26, 1848 actual founding in Elliott Hall was too close to the holidays for practical annual celebration. Morrison is the original Bond No. 1. Therefore, his birthday is the annual Founders date of celebration.
As you can see below, we plan to utilize the entire month of March to celebrate Phi Delta Theta. In addition to what we have planned, there will be periodic calls to action for you individually to recall fond Phi Delta Theta memories, connect with brothers, support the Fraternity, or even join your chapter for a virtual meeting. And when you’re doing these things, be sure to share your pride for Phi Delta Theta on social media or with us at GHQ.
