Alpha Homecoming Wrap Up
We are sorry many of you could not make it to the Homecoming this year. Following the weekend of activities at UMD here are some highlights of the events to see what you missed.
Our primary focus was tailgating before the UMD Homecoming Football game vs. Northern State on Saturday October 15. With fine food provided by Mike Dean and associates we had a prime spot for the homecoming activities like the Bulldog Walk where the football team, band and cheerleaders paraded into the stadium. The Active Chapter also creamed the Chariot race competition for UMD organizations. Of course UMD also won their Homecoming football game beating Northern State 39 to 19. The hockey game later that evening did not go as well; UMD lost to Notre Dame 3-1.

Support for the UMD's Women's Cross Country Team
Joanna Warmington, the coach of the highly ranked UMD Women's CC Team, also attended our tailgating event and the chariot race (she loves winners). Initiated by founder Lynn Jamison, members of the Alpha Alumni Association donated nearly $1500 for scholarships for her team last year and she was ever so grateful because of the limited funding they get. We would like to again solicit scholarship donations this year and urge you to be generous. Again, we would like our donations be grouped and given to the Athletic Department under the name of the Alpha Alumni Assn. Here is a pdf form to make your donation:
