We welcomed back those who have attended past luncheons and welcome Dane Swartz who was able to join us for the first time. Each luncheon continues to draw new Alumni who are interested in reconnecting. The luncheons offer an excellent opportunity for you to take a break from you busy day and we hope to continue adding new names to the list. Remember to bring business cards and pamphlets to share with the others.

GolfballMark your calendars to be at Totteridge Golf Club on Monday, June 25, 2007. This year, the Alumni Association would like to continue its support for Pitt-Greensburg student athletes by participating the annual Bobcat Golf Outing hosted by the Pitt-Greensburg Athletic Department in conjunction with the Office of Institutional Advancement. The more golfers, foursomes, and corporate sponsors that participate, the greater the benefit to our students. All are welcome.

This is a great way to help the students while enjoying a catered meal, an opportunity to win prizes, and a fantastic round of golf at one of the area’s premiere courses.

Watch for details in upcoming Alumni Connections newsletters.
