HISTORY OF BELLA UNION
In 1947 the veteran's organization decided to enter a show in Frontier Fiesta.
These veterans were all members of the Far
East Campaign. They took the name "Bella
Union" from a notorious saloon on the Bar-
bary Coast. The results were satisfactory
and everyone became so closely associated
that they formed a fraternity. The fraternity
that emerged from this was Gan Bey which
means "bottoms up" in Chinese. In 1956,
Gan Bey was initiated into Sigma Chi national fraternity, but the name of our great
show has remained the same. The Bella
Union Saloon has never finished lower than
third place since the shows have been
judged. Its popularity with the audiences is
evident in its continual success.
