The date has been set for one of our tastiest traditions at SEFS, so mark your calendars for Wednesday, October 2, and the Welcome Back Salmon BBQ!
Each year as the Fall Quarter gets under way, we gather for an afternoon of grilling and gabbing in the Anderson Courtyard from 4 to 6 p.m. We’ll cart in loads of fresh salmon from Yakama Nusux, the Yakama Nation tribal fishing company, and grill maestro Luke Rogers will once again direct the cooking crew. You can watch the fish sizzle over alder wood from Pack Forest as your mouth waters and nostrils flare with delight. It’s a feast for your senses, and a great time to catch up with friends and colleagues after the summer.
All SEFS students, staff, faculty and alumni are invited, as are significant others and children. As always, SEFS will be providing beer, soda, baked beans and corn on the cob. But the rest of the meal is a potluck, so please bring an appetizer, side dish or dessert to share!
Also, if you’re able to assist with set-up or clean-up, please contact Nevada Smith to make sure we have enough help before and after the event. We’ll start getting ready at 2 p.m., and we’ll begin taking everything down at 6 p.m. If you can spare a few minutes at either end, that would be tremendous!
