HAMMOND -- The Southeastern Louisiana University Alumni Association will host “A Day at the Races” at the New Orleans Fair Grounds Sunday, Jan. 21.
The fun event is open to all Southeastern alumni and friends, 21 years of age and older, said Alumni Association Assistant Director Nicholas Locascio. Cost is $25, which includes charter bus transportation from Hammond, clubhouse admission and lunch. Jan. 16 is the payment deadline.
The bus will depart the Alumni Center at 10:30 a.m. and return at 6 p.m. Participants who plan to use their own transportation are welcome to meet the Southeastern group at the Fair Grounds, Locascio said.
The lunch menu includes a choice between corned beef and cabbage, a Fair Grounds favorite served with boiled potatoes and a house salad, and the “Exacta,” which includes seafood casserole, a grilled chicken breast with sauce beurre blanc, rice pilaf, vegetable and house salad.
“Lunch will be followed by an afternoon of fun and excitement watching the races,” Locascio said. “Make plans to join us. It’s a ‘sure bet’ that we’ll have a great time.”
