Brummie to be honoured by alumni, fraternity

    Prominent Drumheller resident and doctor, Brummie Aiello is being honoured this week by the University of Alberta Faculty of Medicine Alumni and his fraternity for his service to the community.
    Brummie, who just turned 101 this summer, graduated from the University of Alberta in Edmonton in 1936 with his Bachelors of Science and in 1939 from the Faculty of Medicine.
    His son, Chip Aiello, explains the Faculty of Medicine Alumni and his university fraternity, Delta Epsilon, are planning to honour Brummie for his considerable positive effect on the community, and to foster a relationship between the institutions and Drumheller.
    Chip said from what he understands, Brummie is the oldest living member of his fraternity.
    He explained that Brummie was invited to an event with the alumni in June in Edmonton, but they were not able to attend. As it turns out, discussion at the event among attendees, including Roy Leriche, who once was a doctor in Drumheller, centred on Brummie and his service. They decided to organize the event to recognize his work.
    The private ceremony will take place this Friday at the Ramada, and prominent University of Alberta alumni as well as community leaders have been invited.
