On Sat., Feb. 21, Belmont University’s Chapter of the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity played host to the inaugural “TN Tau” statewide community service event. “TN Tau” is an event created by an ATO at Belmont University, Klay Kelley, to serve the state and is designed to include brothers from the 10 Tennessee chapters of Alpha Tau Omega.
This year 80 brothers from ATO chapters ranging from Memphis all the way to Austin Peay convened in Nashville to serve Monroe Harding Children’s Home. Activities included painting numerous areas at the home, outside yard work and landscaping, preparing a cottage for new students to move into, organizing clothing closet and updating inventory. Kelley said, “TN Tau proved to be such a memorable event for not only the Belmont Chapter, but the other ATO chapters across the state. This event not only started a tradition which will continue for many years to come, but it also provided us an opportunity to help Monroe Harding in these tough times.”
Belmont University’s Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity has been actively involved in engaging and transforming the world around them since their local founding in 1999. Belmont ATO raised $22,000 for Blood:Water Mission last year through their charity golf tournament.
