It was great to see so many people out at the September young alums happy hour, but if you missed it, there’s no need to worry! On Thursday, October 26th from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM, the Vassar Club of Boston will be hosting the next Young Alums event at Clery’s Bar and Restaurant. With Halloween right around the corner we would love for everyone to join us for food, drinks and socializing with Vassar friends somewhere other than in the Villard Room – you definitely do not want to miss out on the fun! This will be a great opportunity to connect with other young alumnae/i in the Boston area in a casual environment. There is no cost to attend and hang out. We encourage you to invite your friends and come out to show your Brewer pride. If you can’t make this month’s Young Alum event, keep your eyes out for November’s happy hour! If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Sammy Augenbraun (saaugenbraun@vassar.edu) or Jonah Williams (jonahwilliams2016@gmail.com).
