Music & Microbrews: July 25, 2013
The first "Music & Microbrews: Young Alumni at the Picnic Pops" took place at the Cannonsburg Ski Area on July 25, 2013. A picnic area was the location for 174 alumni and their guests to enjoy burgers, brats, summer salads, watermelon, beer, wine, lemonade and other summer snacks. Music was played by the Grand Rapids Symphony orchestra from nearly every decade of this century, which included B-52's, Whitney Houston, Journey, Madonna, and other pop favorites. Guests learned about each other with some healthy competition during a trivia game which required players to seek out those with qualities that match the sheet examples included: "Find someone who graduated the same year as you." "Find someone who can sing 6 lines of Dont Stop Believin" and other fun questions. The prize for the best decade inspired outfit went to Ariana Rosel, '04 and most creative outfit went to Rachel Humphreys, '11. A special thanks to the Grand Rapids Symphony for hosting the young alumni event.
