The UMaine Alumni Association is ready to kick off its 2019 Black Bear Road Trip, the annual series of alumni events that will be held in various locations around the United States. Organized in coordination with local alumni volunteers, this year’s plans include events in at least nine states and the District of Columbia.
The first stops occur in February, with alumni gatherings in Tucson (February 19th) and Phoenix, AZ (February 21st). In March the Road Trip travels to The Villages, FL, for dinner and a program featuring UMaine representatives. On March 13, Black Bears will gather at JetBlue Park in Fort Myers, FL, for a Red Sox Spring Training game and a pre-game barbecue.
Other Road Trip events during 2019 include Boston, New York City, Washington, D.C., Lowcountry, S.C., Denver, Chicago, Houston, and the San Francisco Bay area.
Plans are evolving, so check back for information on other locations here.
