Oakland Cemetery Tour 5/5/18
On Saturday, May 5th, 2018, the Greater Atlanta Alumni Association of Sigma Alpha Epsilon is invited to a private tour of Oakland Cemetery, Atlanta’s most historic 48 acres.
This exciting SAE themed afternoon will begin at 4:30 at the Bell Tower, in the heart of the cemetery, where we will enjoy fellowship with wine, soft drinks, and snacks. Our private tour begins at 5:00, and will be led by David Moore, Executive Director of the Historic Oakland Foundation. David has been the “face” of Oakland for 10 years now, and no one gives a more informative and entertaining tour of any site in Atlanta!
The tour will finish around 6:00, and many of us plan to step across the street to have dinner at Six Feet Under (on our own dime). If you have never been to Six Feet Under, it has some of the best seafood in the city. Also great burgers!
The tour, wine, soft drinks, and snacks, are free to all SAEs, their families, neighbors, and friends. While we will highlight some prominent SAEs (e.g. Bobby Jones, Ivan Allen, etc.) this tour will be fascinating to anyone interested in Atlanta history, including young children.
Save your places by CLICKING HERE. Directions to Oakland, and parking instructions, will be emailed to everyone who registers. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to gather in a very special place. Look forward to seeing you there!
—— 2018 Past Events ——
April 2018 Luncheon
Brothers, join us on April 11th for a photographic journey through Atlanta’s most historic 48 acres: Oakland Cemetery. John King, past board chair of the Historic Oakland Foundation (2014-15) will use photographs to explore this sublime island of tranquility in the heart of the city.
Atlanta’s oldest cemetery, and first park, Oakland is also an historic site, a history center, a botanical garden, and an art museum. It is considered by many to be the most unique space in Atlanta, and has remained ranked in the top 10 things to do in Atlanta by TripAdvisor since that website’s inception.
With 70,000 of Atlanta’s earliest citizens calling Oakland their final home (including six Georgia governors, 27 Atlanta mayors, and five Confederate generals), it is no wonder Franklin Garrett called it, “Atlanta’s most tangible link between past and present.”
Our speaker, John King, has served as the president of our Association (2013-14), has received the Order of the Lion (2005), and has twice been awarded the Order of Minerva (2010, 2017).

Atlanta Hawks vs. Philadelphia 76ers
Friday, March 30th, 2018; 7:30pm; Philips Arena
Brothers gathered on March 30th to watch the Hawks take on the Philadelphia 76ers. Tickets included a Chick-fil-A meal voucher. This event was for brothers only, who met prior to the game for drinks.
March 2018 Luncheon
Attendance was high, and brothers were treated to a wonderful Founders’ Day program, which included the presentation of the Merit Key to Wes Vawter (immediate past president), and The Highest Effort award to Judge Rick McCully. The program was capped off with Mike Rodgers’ assessment of the current state of the fraternity, and the Greek world in general.
February 2018 Luncheon
Our speaker in February was the incomparable Ron Hart, who self identifies as a syndicated op/ed humorist columnist, and Liberterian.
Ron is absolutely one of our most informative and entertaining regular speakers. He says more in his weekly column than the rest of the media says all month. Ron’s insights are delivered with Mark Twain-like wit, and he has a rare gift for distilling the truth from complex issues.
If you’d like to receive a link to Ron’s column in a weekly email, just send him an email request: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here are some links to recent editions of Ron’s column:
