U of M alumni gathering planned in Lafayette

LAFAYETTE — Calling all Agriculture, Home Economics, and Natural Resources graduates from the University of Minnesota, St. Paul and Waseca Campuses! The first-ever “Gathering of the Grads” from this area will be held Saturday, September 15, at Bernadotte Lutheran Church Park, rural Lafayette.

The park is located at 34122 515th Avenue (Nicollet County Road 10), about five miles east and a mile north of Lafayette. Road construction might necessitate reaching the church park only from the north. Watch Facebook and other media sources for last minute information.

The gathering will be an opportunity for CFANS (College of Agriculture) alumni of ALL ages, friends, and their families from central, south central, and southwestern Minnesota to get together for fun, socializing, reminiscing, and some Ski-U-Mah.

The event will feature a noon potluck dinner, as well as before (11:00 a.m. to noon) and after (2:00-3:00 p.m.) tours of the Cow Collector’s Mooseum, across the road from the church. The gathering will be held rain or shine, moving into the church if necessary.

Those attending are asked to bring a dish(es) to share. Table service will be provided. A donation box will be available to help defray costs.

Please help the committee spread the word by sharing with other alumni of the U of M, St. Paul and Waseca Campuses.

Anyone able to help with set-up or takedown is asked to contact Michele Schroeder (507-276-4810), Ken Reckard (507-301-1570) or Ruth Klossner (507-240-0048). Your help will be appreciated.
