    Hi! I love, love, love this website! I am so happy that I happened upon it. I did however notice that there are no events for Zeta Phi Beta listed. The Founders day celebration is January 16th, 2020 and there are events occurring in in Washington D.C. at Howard University from the 16th to the 19th. 2020 is also the 100th anniversary of the organization. The Centennial Boule is from June 23-28, 2020.
