This Week’s Happenings

Hello PBL Members,

Remember that this Wednesday is our Adopt-A-Highway community service event! We will be meeting in the lobby of Hyland at 5 and carpooling out to our clean up site. As of right now, the weather is supposed to be in the low 60s/upper 50s and sunny! Make sure to dress accordingly.

Also, Friday is our tailgating event at the football game! This is going to be a fun time to just get to know one another a little bit better. Don’t be afraid to bring friends! Food will be provided, but if you want to bring a dish to pass feel free. We all love to eat. The game starts at 7, and we will start tailgating at 5!

Hope to see you at both of these events!
