Mrs. Mary L. Doe 234 Any Street Anytown, Georgia 00000
Dear Mrs. Doe:
The Brothers of the Lambda Lambda Chapter would like to again express our condolences on the transition of our dear brother, James M. Doe, to the Omega Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. on December 1, 2005. Please know that his memory will dwell with us forever. Please do not hesitate to call me or any brother of the Lambda Lambda Chapter should you need assistance in any way.
I am sure that Brother Doe shared with you the manner in which his Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. paraphernalia should be disposed. The National Office of Alpha Phi Alpha retains the rights to all fraternal symbols to include fraternity pins and Alpha logo ware. However, financial brothers are automatically granted permission to utilize registered trademarks of the organization. Therefore, we ask that you provide this paraphernalia to an Alpha family member or friend, if you have not done so already. Otherwise, you may send the material to me as President of the local chapter.
Please complete the attached Paraphernalia Disposition Form and return it in the enclosed self-
addressed stamped envelope. This form will be included with the Omega Chapter that must be forwarded to the National Office. transition will appear in the next issue of the Sphinx® Magazine.
