CFD Welcome BBQ

It’s fall again and that means free BBQ. On the September 14th, the CFD had its Welcome BBQ in conjunction with the Alumni Association Office. To welcome new and returning graduates, and to congratulate all the students who have successfully defended over the summer

Brave DGA executives Erik Fraunberger, Chris Duszynski , Nik Ewasechko and Steve Shielder faced the frigid temperatures to cook burgers and franks for the Foothills community. Their enthusiasm for the task was clearly visible from the sometimes large flames emanating from the grill. Braver still were the students who stood in a queue facing the flames and standing in the cold temperatures to get their burgers. The rest of the CFD executive committee was busy helping students find drinks salad and buns throughout the evening ensuring everyone was fed and a good time was had by all.
