- ABOUT LAKELAND
As we approach the dog days of summer, one might ask, "just what are the dog days of summer?" The term was used by both the Greeks and later the Romans to refer to the late summer days when Sirius, the Dog Star, rose just before or at the same time as the sun. The term has come to refer to the hottest, most sultry days of summer, and can also have the connotation of a time that is very hot or stagnant, or marked by a dull lack of progress.
Fortunately, this does not describe at all what is going on in Alumni Relations right now! We are about to host several great summer events, and hope you will join us for one or all. On July 30, we will be in Chippewa Falls for a winetasting event at the newly opened River Bend Winery. On September 12, we will be having a brunch and tailgate party when the Muskies battle the Mount St. Joseph Lions near Cincinnati, OH. On September 22, we will be in Milwaukee when the Brewers take on the Cubs. We are also gearing up for the fall favorite, Homecoming on October 9-10. We have a second winetasting planned on October 24 at Stone's Throw Winery in Door County. To learn more and to register for any of these events, please follow the links provided in the July Muskie Mail.
Clearly, we are anything but stagnant, and certainly not dull. Don't wait for the doldrums of the dog days to catch up with you, register today. We trust that with this array of choices, you will find something that interests you. We look forward to seeing you soon.
