SUU In View (Alumni Magazine - Spring 2003)
Alumni Chapters - Las Vegas
What's happening with the SUU Las Vegas Alumni Chapter? Plenty, first of all, you can check out the events they sponsored for SUU's Homecoming on the SUU Alumni web page!
Dennis Sponer ('92 political science) outlined the mission of the alumni chapter by stating, "Our organization was created to connect, inform and serve the University's diverse alumni and friends in the Las Vegas and surrounding areas, and to use the talents and resources of its alumni and friends to support the mission of the University. We are starting small this year with monthly social lunches. We are planning events in the spring and fall. The spring event will be a western themed barbeque for families, and the fall event will be coordinated with the University's Homecoming."
An old fashioned Western barbeque will highlight the exciting spring event, to be held at A Secret Garden located in the Las Vegas Racquet Club on April 25, 2003 beginning at 5:00 pm. Dinner will be served at 6:00 pm. MARK YOUR CALENDARS, we hope all of our Las Vegas Alumni and their families will join us for this exciting event!
A Secret Garden is a private park with facilities to entertain guests of all ages including a large pool, volleyball, basketball and tennis courts, horseshoe pits and Jumping Jupiter to entertain our friends of all ages. There will be live entertainment, together with a DJ, games and prizes enough to go around. This is an event you and your family will long remember plus you'll be able to reacquaint and reminisce with your classmates and friends from good ol' SUU.
The cost of the spring event is free (well sort of) for you and your entire family. What's the catch you ask? No catch, just simply pay your annual alumni dues which is only $25.00 per year. What a deal! "We are excited to have an organization dedicated to the promotion of Southern Utah University and the benefit of our alumni in Las Vegas," said Pennie Copley, Assistant Director of Alumni Relations.
