    A great time was had by all.  Special thanks to Jonah for organizing the event, to our sponsors for their generous help and to the students for showing up and carrying our golf games to a higher level.  We couldn't have asked for better weather, or better people to spend the morning with having fun and raising scholarship funds.

    This event was another tremendous success.  We doubled our participation from the last after 5 event and we all had a great time.  I am sorry that there were not more people there to join us, but that just means there was more networking for those that were able to make it.  We will continue these through the upcoming months and hope to see more of our SFPE chapter members there.

    The first after five event was held at Bleu Garten in midtown OKC.  The venue allowed for sampling food and beverages from different vendors within the open air dining and entertainment space.  It lasted from 5pm to 7pm.  We look forward to hosting another after five event and hope to see more members taking advantage of these tremendous networking opportunities in the future.

    The OSU student chapter of SFPE has created a website! www.osusfpe.com

The chapters' relationships are mutually beneficial. So, please visit both websites, stay involved, and provide feedback to improve the fire protection community!
