4th Annual Spartan Family Picnic

July 13, 2017 by Justin Bugajski No Comments

Calling all present, future and lifetime Spartans in the Bay Area: we are hosting another fabulous #SpartyPicnic on Saturday, August 5, in sunny San Ramon! We had a fantastic Spartan turnout at our picnic last year and everyone really enjoyed the delicious food, family fun and Spartan camaraderie.

Newly admitted as well as current MSU students that are heading back to East Lansing for the Fall semester will be in attendance along with their families, so let’s send our Bay Area MSU students off to the Banks of the Red Cedar in style!

This is a great family friendly event, and all future and currently enrolled Spartans are admitted free!

We’ll have plenty of grilled hot dogs and sausages for everybody, with side dishes, chips, and even a Spartan-themed cake for desert! BYOB for beer and wine, but please do not bring any hard alcohol to this family friendly event.

A big thank you to Linda Lovett and her family who have generously offered to host the picnic this year! The backyard of their home has plenty of room for everybody and there is a swimming pool as well. So bring your swim suits, bring your picnic blankets and chairs and make it a fun time!
