Ready for an Alumni Brother Retreat!

Tuesday, November 18th, 2014

In January 1990, the Alpha Tau pledge class was initiated.
In honor of the 25th Anniversary, I was inspired to plan a simple reunion get away to reconnect with our brothers and their families. But of course this event is open to all alumni, spouses, families, undergraduates, etc.

Accomodations:

Hershey Park Camping Resort (www.hersheyparkcampingresort.com)
I have reserved just a modest number of cabins and campsites for the two nights so far in as close proximity as I could based on availability so we can visit with each other during course of the weekend and have campfires and beers at night.
NOTE: All cabins have electricity and air conditioning. There was no availability for any cabins with plumbing. They are heavily in demand and were not available for reservations. The campground does have the bath/shower houses available.

For those not wanting to camp:
