SEFS Spring Gathering
Center for Urban Horticulture

The annual SEFS Spring Gathering will be a potluck-style barbecue on Sunday, April 10, from 4-7 p.m. at the Center for Urban Horticulture. It’s a casual, family-friendly affair, and among the usual festivities we’ll be honoring Ross Braine (’09, B.S.), director of wǝɫǝbʔaltxʷ - Intellectual House and the UW Office of Minority Affairs & Diversity’s tribal liaison. Ross played a key role in bringing the Intellectual House to campus—the culmination of a 40-plus year project—and he now manages all aspects of building operations. Last year, he received a UW Distinguished Staff Award for his efforts, and we are proud to recognize his achievements with our annual Honored Alumnus Award. So come help us celebrate his work with the Intellectual House, and his tremendous outreach efforts with tribal communities across the Pacific Northwest!

If you attended the past couple years, you’ll recall we’ve had terrific weather and live music, an extremely tasty spread of food, and an expansive wine tasting. We will have a short awards program, as well, but most of the time is designed for socializing and enjoying the beautiful grounds at the Center for Urban Horticulture. It’s always a wonderful opportunity to see colleagues and old friends, and we’re really looking forward to catching up with you again this year.

If you're able to join us, please bring a salad, side dish or dessert to share, and we’ll provide beverages and grillables. All alumni, students, staff, faculty, friends and family are invited, and we’re hoping you’ll RSVP as early as possible to help us prepare for the right number of people. Parking will be available for free at the Center for Urban Horticulture, and if you are interested in volunteering to help with set-up, clean-up or other tasks during the event, send a quick email to Sarah Thomas.

Please pass this invite along to any other classmates we might have missed, and we look forward to seeing you there!
