For the second straight year, the regional Oktoberfest happy hour track made it the whole way to Providence, Rhode Island on October 24 and eight folks came out to take part in the event (doubling the total from 2004). For the second consecutive fall, 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 Ri-Ra, in Providence, Rhode Island, the group gathered in a private back room and had dinner and drinks during the night. 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. In addition, some planning for future Juniata events in the region took place.

Thank you to Chris Bush '92 for organizing the happy hour event.
