Manchester, New Hampshire was the second stop on this year’s Oktoberfest trek for Juniata College alumni, family and friends. On Wednesday, October 3, a group of six gathered at Billy’s Sports Bar for the evening. The evening marked the start of the Major League Baseball postseason and, as luck would have it, the Boston Red Sox opened their series against the Anaheim Angels. The wall-to-wall television parade was showing nothing but the game and it made for a very lively crowd at the bar. The group enjoyed the atmosphere and the time together. Stories from the 1960s until present were shared and a very good time was had by all in attendance. Those in attendance were excited about the thought of making this an annual event, in addition to having another event during the year. Stay tuned to the Juniata alumni Web site for future event dates.

The regional happy hour program, which normally takes place in October and early November, is set up to help welcome younger alumni to the area, while established alumni from each region are invited to come out and meet and greet the new alumni.

Special thanks to Lori Hassinger Baldwin '93 for organizing and hosting this event!
