Homecoming will be in October this year. Although I agreed to serve on the committee for my 40th class reunion, I did so with the caveat that I wouldn’t actually be able to attend any of the reunion events. The Alumni Association in coordination with the Active Body will hold several days of events as follows:
Friday October 6, 2017
Smoker: 8:00 p.m. until Midnight at Clubhouse
Saturday October 7, 2017
Clubhouse tours: 9:00 a.m. until 10:00 a.m.
DRU Alumni Association meeting: 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. at Clubhouse
Tailgate Party: 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. at Kilgour-Trailblazer Tennis Center parking lot.
Please plan on joining us. Since our last SCOOP much has happened:
- The actives and alumni attending a Brewers game on Friday, April 21, 2017 again sponsored by Wayne Grunewald. Thanks, Wayne. If you live in the area you should plan on attending next year.
- The actives hosted the 9th Annual Delta Rho Upsilon Toga 5K Walk/Run on April 23rd, 2017 with wide support from the campus as well as alumni.
- The alumni welcomed a new group of actives at the Annual senior picnic on May 12 where we honor the new members of the alumni association and their families.
On the upcoming events schedule is not only Homecoming but also a Active Dinner and Fundraiser in November. Details to follow on the website. Also, a DRU Alumni Association Meeting is scheduled for January 27, 2018 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm at the DRU Clubhouse, 427 E. Broadway Waukesha followed by the annual Alumni-Active History Event.
The alumni association actives dues reimbursement program has been much appreciated by the actives receiving the same. Much work has been done on the Pledge Class project but much more needs to be done. A subcommittee has been formed and the members plan on meeting monthly to work on the same. More to follow.
If any time you have any comments, questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
Yours in Brotherhood,
