Friday, September 28 @ 7:00pm MSU Women’s volleyball vs Penn State
APA has a limited number of free tickets available, and each ticket admits two people for general admission. We will go early and identify a section for APA members and their guest/family to sit together in the upper section. Keep in mind that athletics requires a ticket for every person (even infants), and that no bags/purses/backpacks are permitted in Jenison Field House during athletic events, so leave those in the car!
To reserve your ticket, please email Sue Brandt at firstname.lastname@example.org. A limit of one ticket (each ticket is good for 2 people’s entry into the game) will be available to APA members in good standing. Tickets will be available on a first-come-first-served basis for pre-orders and then made available to others. If any extra tickets are available right before the event, we will offer to those who may need them for additional members in their family. Ticket pickup will only be available September 28th from 6:00pm-6:45pm on the steps just outside the volleyball game entrance to Jenison which is on the west side of the building. There may even be popcorn for the early birds!
MSU Homecoming Parade October 5
We started small last year with an APA entry in the MSU homecoming parade and hope to be back this year with a larger group. We welcome APA members and their families to be part of our parade entry and walk along the parade route with us and pass out candy. If you and your family are interested in being in the parade, and/or helping us with a couple details of the event, please contact Sue Brandt at email@example.com
APA Coat Drive October 1-19
The dates for the winter coat drive have been set and APA is pleased to again provide this service to the MSU and Lansing school district. These items are sorted and re-distributed to MSU CAMP, which is the College Assistance Migrant Program, a residential program with students living in Holden Hall that assists migrant or seasonal farm worker students to enable them to complete their first year of college. These students, generally from Texas are from a warm climate and come unprepared for the Michigan winters and lack financial means. Items collected are also shared with the Lansing School Education Association (LSEA).
Clean, new and gently used winter coats, hats, gloves and boots will be accepted in both adult and children’s sizes. Please no spring/summer apparel and no torn or dirty items.
The University community and the LSEA students depend on this and we need a few more APA to get involved for a quick one-time minimal time commitment. If you could help sort coats for about an hour the evening of October 22, please contact Sue Brandt for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org or 355-9306.
New this year, we will offer two drive-thru locations where you can pull in and drop off coats on your way into work, rather than having to bring the coats in from your car:
October 2 from 7:30am-8:00am at 1855 Place Parking Ramp – first floor inside the Harrison entrance
October 10 from 7:30am-8:00am at the Olin Parking Ramp – just past the gate arm entrance
