August 25 – Alumni Family Day at Bay Beach

Sunday, August 25th, 2013

There was no question it was summer with 93ᵒ temperatures greeting alumni family and friends for UW-Green Bay’s first Alumni Family Day at Bay Beach! Approximately 40 people were in attendance, representing alumni from the first four-year graduating class of 1973 all the way through 2013. Kids ages 1-17 had a great time hanging out with Phlash, doing the limbo, playing bean bag toss, wrapping each other up as mummies and running the egg relay race. Alumni competed fiercely in the trivia contest and had the opportunity to learn some interesting facts about their alma mater. All in all, it was a super fun day and an event worth repeating! Check out more photos at our Facebook page.
