     HAMMOND -- The Southeastern Louisiana University Alumni Association will host "A Day at the Races" at the New Orleans Fair Grounds Sunday, Feb. 24.

     The fun event is open to all Southeastern alumni and friends, 21 years of age and older, said Alumni Association Director Kathy Pittman. Cost is $55, which includes bus transportation from Hammond, clubhouse admission and lunch. Feb. 20 is the payment deadline.

     The bus will depart the Alumni Center at 10:30 a.m. and return immediately after the last race. Participants who plan to use their own transportation are welcome to meet the Southeastern group at the Fair Grounds, although the cost will remain the same Pittman said.

     The lunch menu includes a wide variety of choices, such as the Fair Grounds favorite corned beef and cabbage, seafood du jour, grilled chicken breast with garlic mushroom cream, pasta du jour, rice pilaf, vegetable du jour and dessert. Iced tea, soft drinks and coffee are also included.

     "Lunch will be followed by an afternoon of fun and excitement watching the races," Pittman said. "Make plans to join us."
