Coming up on Sunday, April 27, is the annual SEFS Alumni Spring Gathering! Organized by the SEFS Alumni Group, the spring celebration is a wonderful occasion to reconnect with old colleagues and friends, and to meet some of the current faculty, staff and students at the school (and all, of course, while having a great time!).
This year’s event will be a potluck-style barbecue at the NHS Hall at the UW Botanic Garden’s Center for Urban Horticulture from 4-7 p.m. In addition to other activities, we will have open house-style tours available so you can come see what’s happening at the Center for Urban Horticulture, and hear about current projects from staff and students. We’ll also be honoring the career of Jim Brown, class of ’62, for his decades of work in forestry. Come help us thank him for his lifelong dedication to the industry!
Last year’s gathering was a great success, from the incredible weather to the wine tasting to the 150 or so alumni, staff, students, faculty and friends who attended. So come out and join the celebration this year, and spread the word to other alumni and friends!
If you’re able to come, we hope you’ll bring a side dish or dessert to share for the potluck. We’ll provide provide beverages, grillables and salmon, and please sign up as soon as possible to help us prepare for the right number of people. Families and children are extremely welcome, and you can contact Cynthia Welte, one of the organizers, with any questions about the event, or if you’d like to get involved.
See you there!
