The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay will host its second annual Alumni Reunion Days on campus Friday and Saturday, Oct. 24 and 25.
The 2014 celebration will pair some of the more popular elements from last year’s inaugural weekend — sporting and entertainment events, an all-campus brunch — with new offerings including an afternoon gathering at Shorewood clubhouse, hayrides, an outdoor campfire and indoor social at historic Lambeau Cottage, an alumni photography show and more.
Friday night’s events from 6 to 11 p.m. at Lambeau Cottage could draw one of the largest public gatherings at the facility since its refurbishing nearly a decade ago. NFL Hall of Fame coach and Packers founder Curly Lambeau had the small home designed and built in 1941. He often entertained there, especially when the Packers held training camp at Rockwood Lodge (now Bayshore County Park) near Dyckesville, about 10 miles away. It was acquired by the state in 1978 to complete campus holdings along the bay. In recent years the University has used the cottage as a campus-community gathering space for staff retreats, donor entertaining, informal receptions and meetings.
The $25 registration fee is good for one or two people. Each additional guest is $5. Pre-registration is strongly advised so tickets can be included when guests arrive to pick up their packets at the University Union’s Alumni Room. To learn more or to register.
