Sunday, April 30:

Farewell breakfast in the hospitality suite from 9:30-11:00



We’re gonna be cranking this booger back up, boys and girls.

Lots of things have happened since we last posted.  (FOUR YEARS AGO!)

But, like you, I can’t remember what the hell did.  Seems like UT recently won a football game and, in an unrelated story, several thousand dildos were unleashed on campus.  (Sounds like rush week…)

In the meantime, here’s the link to the hotel booking site for the AEPi Reunion, April 28-30, 2017.

Click here to book your room.

Now, if I can figure out how to work this dang thing again, we’ll have a new website for our reunion.

Stand by, brothers.

Meyer Goldberg’s mom, Esther Goldberg passed away Thursday morning after a lengthy illness.

For many of us, Esther was a second Mom, who enjoyed watching all her children at play but not shy about telling all of us how to do it like menschen!  We’ll miss her!

Funeral services will be graveside at the Beth Yeshurun Cemetery located at 1037 N Post Oak Lane (at I-10) on Sunday, September 9th at 10:30 AM.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Meyer and the entire Goldberg family.
