Escape to 117 Ash 2019 Recap
The 6th Annual Escape to 117 Ash is in the books! It was another great weekend with over 85 alumni and undergraduates gathering in Ames to meet old friends and to celebrate Delta Upsilon.
The weekend kicked off on Friday, July 19 with a class reunion for the classes of 1979-1985. The reunion took place at Ames Country Club as alums gathered to re-kindle old friendships and learn about the current success of the DU Chapter.
On Saturday alumni and undergraduates gathered at 117 Ash Avenue for brunch before heading out for golf and campus art tours. On Saturday evening, everyone met back at the house for drinks before enjoying a dinner of steak, baked beans and strawberry shortcake cooked by house chef Darrin Miller.
The final gathering of the weekend was a brunch at the house prior to departures. It was a great weekend with lots of fun had by all! If you have not made it back to an Escape to 117 Ash weekend, please make plans to join us next year. Escape to 117 Ash 2020 will take place on July 24-26.
A special thanks goes out to John Carson ’73 for leading the charge in organizing this event and to Nick Yeo ’19 for taking the pictures seen in the album below.
