Please join us for our semi-annual beach cleanup along our adopted section of the Delaware Seashore State Park, just south of Dewey Beach.

We will collect trash along the beach to rid the coastline of debris. DNREC will provide plastic gloves and trash bags. Immediately following the cleanup, we will go to the Starboard to enjoy appetizers and a cash bar.

All attendees are asked to wear UD colors to show their Blue Hen pride.

UD Alumni Bus Trip to DC and White House Holiday Tour

TBD (Saturday, December 5, 12, or 19, 2015)

Delaware Tech, Jack F. Owens Campus
(for pick-up & drop-off: Route 18, Georgetown, DE 19947)

7:00 a.m. - Bus Leaves for Washington, D.C.
8:00 p.m. - Bus Returns to Delaware Tech, Jack F. Owens Campus

Cost: $20 (includes White House Holiday Tour, bus trip to/from Washington, D.C., & light snacks on the bus)

Tour dates and times are very selective during this time of year. We’ve selected three dates for our tour: December 5, 12 or 19 (all Saturdays). In order to submit the request for a specific White House Holiday Tour, we must collect your information and payment now if you’d like to attend. Then, we will submit the entire list of registrants to the White House for tour assignment. We will notify all registrants of the exact time, once the White House has assigned us a date and time for the tour.

The Kent & Sussex Counties Alumni Club is organizing a bus trip to the White House for the famous Holiday Tour. The round-trip bus will leave from Delaware Tech – Georgetown on Saturday morning and return to the same location that evening. Alumni and friends will get access into The White House for the Holiday Tour, bus transportation to and from DC and hot chocolate and holiday snacks on the bus ride.

Participants are free to explore our Nation’s Capital or enjoy a meal with friends before and after our organized group tour of The White House.

Please join us in thanking the UD Alumni Association for their generous support of this event!

Tickets are non-refundable & nontransferable.
