Dear Alumni and Friends,
Summer is in full effect in our house with vacations, endless nights outside and plenty of cookouts. I hope you’ve been enjoying your summer as well. This past month, my husband, two sons and I joined fellow Shenandoah alumni at Hersheypark for the annual Swarm the Park event. It may have been the hottest and most humid day of the year, but we had an absolute blast. Catching up with alumni of all ages, students, parents and staff members was so much fun. My family enjoyed the zoo as well as endless hours at the water park! We wrapped up our day at the Hershey Kissing Tower for a group photo. The Office of Alumni Affairs even raffled off a prize of four Shenandoah Summer Music Theatre tickets for those who attended the event!
Don’t worry if you missed out on the fun, because there are still two more opportunities to meet up with your fellow Shenandoah family. Next Sunday, July 29, meet up at Luna Park, Coney Island to ride some amazing roller coasters. Part of the proceeds from ticket sales will go towards the Hal Herman Lab Theatre. Don’t miss tug of war on the beach and your opportunity to win some prizes as well! Finally, Kings Dominion will host the Hornets on Saturday, Aug. 4. There will be plenty of rides, roller coasters and the Soak City water park to enjoy. And, don’t miss Buzzy while you’re there! Kings Dominion will also be hosting their BBQ and Brew Fest the same day, so there will surely be some yummy food and drinks! Here’s to a wonderfully memorable summer spent with family, friends and your Shenandoah community!
