Oktoberfest lunch is Oct. 20

The SMU Volunteer Committee is planning an Oktoberfest lunch, just in time for the next Packers vs. Vikings game.

Faculty, staff and students are invited to SMU’s Oktoberfest on Thursday, Oct. 20, from 11:30 to 1 p.m. in the Plaza (or Hall of Fame Room in case of inclement weather). Enjoy some warm food as we usher in the colder weather: brats ($3), beer cheese soup ($3), hot dogs ($2) and root beer ($1). Or enjoy three items for $5. All proceeds will benefit Christ the Teacher Institute for Education in Nairobi.

In honor of the weekend’s rivalry game, wear your team colors and donate to “jerseys for a cause” at the Business Office windows.

Get creative with your team spirit; a prize will be given for the “best dressed fan.” And, join in for a rousing game of tug-of-war between Packers fans and Vikings fans to see who’s got the “stronger” loyalty!
