The regional Oktoberfest happy hours kicked off in Washington, DC, on October 20 and an amazing total of 25 individuals came out to take part in the event. For the second straight year, the regional Oktoberfest happy hour program was set up to help welcome younger alumni to the region. Established alumni from each region were invited to come out and meet and greet and welcome the new alumni base to the region.

At Thunder Grill in Union Station in Washington, DC, the group gathered at tables close to the bar. The 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and 2000s were represented on the evening, including four members of The Class of 2004 and one Class of 2005 graduate. Great conversation and story-telling were exchanged as well as the sharing and comparing of past Juniata experiences, while everyone was also able to catch up with one another and update friends on current events going on in their own lives. JC-DC President David Corman '77 welcomed everyone to the evening and thanked everyone for coming out in large numbers.

Thank you to Joel Ranck '90 for organizing the happy hour event in the Washington, DC area.
