We had a great time at the 2018 Annual APA picnic again this year. Counting members, their children and other family members we had just over 200 people attend in spite of a less than perfect weather day. It was a good opportunity to meet with other APA’s to network, play some games eat hot dogs and hamburgers with all the picnic sides. We had some members with a long history at MSU and the APA attend, as well as some new hires that have never been to an event like this. Patriarche Park is a convenient location and the kids enjoyed the Sno-Kones, playground, games and toys. It was a nice opportunity sit back and relax and not have to worry about making dinner that night.
An added feature this year was a drawing of gift card prizes done throughout the event. The lucky winners were Yizhu Zhang, Weian Ou, Barbie Staley, Alex Dawson and Cindy Hudson. Congratulations to you all.
