Alumni gatherings allow former students to reconnect and once again enjoy one another’s company. A pilot Warrior Adventures program was launched last summer and is available again this year. Similar activities will be planned in other areas where sufficient numbers of alumni are located.
Contact some of your college friends and invite them to spend the day with you. The adventures provide a great excuse to get together. If you have lost track of a friend, call Larry Stewart at 248.218.2023 for contact information. Reserve now to participate in one of this summer’s Warrior Adventures!
Detroit Zoo Family Day
Whether you are single or have a house full of kids, join us for our Detroit Zoo Family Day on Saturday, June 28, 2014. With our group rate, tickets are $12 for adults (15+ yrs) and $8 for children (2-14 yrs). Infants are admitted free. Those with season passes to the zoo are invited to join us as well.
We will begin the day at the zoo when it opens at 9:00 a.m. Everyone will be able to visit the exhibits on their own until lunch time. We have rented a picnic area with a tent near the polar bear exhibit so we can share lunch together. You can bring your own picnic or purchase lunch at a nearby food court. We will supply bottled water and cookies. The picnic area will be available from noon until 1:00 p.m. for lunch. During that time we will have door prize drawings for those who are present. Everyone will then be able to once again visit the exhibits on their own until the zoo closes at 5:00 p.m.
Reservation Deadline: June 19, 2014.

Day at the Detroit Cultural Center
On Saturday, August 9, 2014, we will visit the newly renovated Detroit Historical Museum and the Detroit Institute of Arts.

The only cost for this event is parking and $10 per person ($5 for children under 12) for a catered lunch. Oakland, Macomb, and Wayne County residents are admitted to the museums at no charge. We will be covering the cost for those living in other counties.
We will begin our day at the Detroit Historical Museum when the facility opens at 10:00 a.m. Friends and families will be able to see the museum at their own pace. Lunch, catered by Slows BarBQ, will be served from noon until 1:00 p.m. in the Historical Museum’s Depot. During that time we will have door prize drawings for those who are present. After lunch we will disperse with our friend and family groups to the Detroit Institute of Arts. The art museum closes at 5:00 p.m.
Reservation Deadline: July 31, 2014. A limited number of tickets are available, so they will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.
