The 1st Annual MBA Family & Friends Picnic

23 Sep 2011 by Tina Hicks, No Comments »

On Sunday, September 11th, with clouds threatening ominously, about 50 people participated in DeSales University’s first annual MBA Family & Friends picnic. The cool air provided just the right weather for the event – not too hot and sticky!  Considering we had just come through a hurricane AND a tropical storm with crazy flooding, it was a nice reprieve to be outside enjoying a late summer day!  The food was delicious: pork BBQ provided by our MBA alum, Crystal Calla and her husband’s “Fat Boys House of BBQ”, hot dogs, and all different types of goodies brought by the attendees.  It was nice to sit back and reconnect with fellow students and alumni, meet new instructors and talk with long-standing professors.  The kids had a huge park to explore and play on; even the adults joined in!  Joe Zukauskas, Lansdale MBA Program Coordinator, and Mary Ann Falk, MBA Associate Director, provided lawn games for everyone’s pleasure.  The kids enjoyed the bean bag toss while others enjoyed many rousing rounds of ladder golf.  There was only one casualty: a lone ladder golf ball went wayward and got stuck in a tree!  After a good thirty minutes and five men trying to get it down, they finally decided the ladder golf ball had played its last game.

Ironically, the event ended with the sun coming out of the clouds just about the time the weather man said it would start pouring.  Everyone went home with full tummies, happy memories, and talk about next year. 

The MBA program and MBA Association thanks everyone who made this a great success!  We invite you to make plans to join us next year for the second annual MBA Family & Friends picnic – stay tuned for more information!
