First, all alumni are invited to the Alumni Picnic, which will take place on Sunday, Oct. 8, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the Helix campus. The event will feature areas for each graduating class, entertainment by Helix students, food available for purchase from student groups, music by alumni bands, a campus tour, an alumni car show, and other great attractions.
