The Game, 2009 - November 21, 2009 - 11 a.m.
Sons and Daughters (and casual acquaintances) of Eli will gather on Saturday, November 21st, to witness Yale’s certain domination of the hapless, but no less reviled, Crimson of Harvard.
Local festivities will be at a familiar location with a new name: "A J Bombers” (formerly “The Corner”), 1247 North Water Street – corner of Knapp – in downtown Milwaukee. Kick-off is 11:00 a.m. central time.
As always, there is no charge for admission; food and drinks will be available for purchase.
We expect to be joined again this year by at least (or, more aptly, at most) a smattering of Harvard alums. Let’s make sure we have them badly outnumbered again!

Yale Day of Service
The first Yale Day of Service took place on May 16, 2009, with the goal that alumni around the globe will come together to serve their local communities. The YAW was, of course, ahead of the trend with its recent involvement in the Walk Against Diabetes.
With the recent departure from Wisconsin of Lauralee and John Oenick, we are in search of a venue for our annual family-oriented summer picnic (date to be determined), which has been a great success over the years. If you have an idea for a venue or would like to offer your home for this event, please contact Alan or Karen.
