Greetings Brothers,

Welcome to The Light of Southern Maryland, the official quarterly newsletter of the Sigma Alpha Lambda Chapter (SAL), Key No. 677, of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. This newsletter is distributed to Alpha Brothers of the MAAC and residents of Southern Maryland to increase the awareness of SAL’s implementation of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.’s national programs, local community service initiatives, and philanthropic efforts facilitated by the Alpha Foundation of Southern Maryland.

Can you believe that 2021 is almost over? It seems as if the year just begun yesterday and its already time to turn the pages of the calendar to 2022. Brothers, I employ you to make the most of your time whether it be in your careers, personal lives, with your families, and especially – when it comes to doing the work of Alpha. Let us celebrate 115 years of the existence of the greatest black Greek letter fraternity known to mankind!

"The chief significance of Alpha Phi Alpha lies in its purpose to stimulate, develop, and cement an intelligent, trained leadership in the unending fight for freedom, equality and fraternity. Our task is endless."Jewel Henry Arthur Callis, May 1946
