Alumni gathered on March 6, 2007 to enjoy a catered meal and to catch up on things. We welcomed back those who have attended past luncheons and had the pleasure of listening to John Felice and Rob Ritson who talked about all the exciting renovation and growth in Greensburg and Westmoreland county.

Each luncheon continues to draw new Alumni who are interested in reconnecting with fellow Alumni and with Pitt-Greensburg. 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.

Don’t miss out...mark you calendar to attend the next PGAA Monthly Networking Luncheon on Tuesday, April 3rd.
