    Lambda Phi Epsilon

Twelve alumni from Lewis & Clark’s Lambda Phi Epsilon fraternity, along with family and friends, traveled to the Cook Islands in the South Pacific for a reunion in July 2005. The celebration was the third reunion for the fraternity brothers, who have met every five years since 1995.

During this trip, participants donated more than 12 boxes of books to a local library in Rarotonga. Michael Powell, owner of Powell’s Books in Portland, matched the number of books collected by members.

The fraternity’s next reunion is slated for 2010 in Hawaii. Lambda Phi Epsilon, which was formed by 12 varsity football team members in 1946, was active on campus until 1977.
