The Douglas County Board of Commissioners recently recognized the Mu Mu Mu Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc., (cordially known as “Tri-Mu”) for its service to the community. Tri-Mu follows the Fraternal motto of “Friendship is Essential to the Soul” by assisting in community projects such as sponsoring “Adopt-A-Road” on a portion of Fairburn Road; participating in fellowship programs for the elderly at Grace Assisted Living; partnering with the City of Douglasville Police Department in its Youth Against Violence program; and assisting with the makeover at Stewart Middle School.
One of their major projects is teaming up with the Black Educational History Exhibit to produce the annual Douglasville Juneteenth Festival on June 13th - 14th in downtown Douglasville. Juneteenth celebrates African-American achievements and the ending of slavery in the United States in June 1865.
Omega Psi Phi was the first international fraternal organization to be founded on the campus of a historically black college, Howard University in Washington, DC. Manhood, Scholarship, Perseverance and Uplift are their cardinal principles. Omega Psi Phi has over 750 chapters throughout the United States, Bermuda, Bahamas, Virgin Islands, Korea, Japan, Liberia, Germany, and Kuwait.
The Mu Mu Mu Chapter is headquartered in Douglasville. Dave Beasley is the Chapter Basileus (President).
