2022 Spring Picnic Recap


85 Spartans made it to the Picnic this year at the Del Webb Pavilion.  The wind gusts made the 70’s temperature seem much colder.  Everyone had to hold on to their plates so the food didn’t go flying.  Had a great selection of Spartan items for auction.  The auction raised a total of $740 for the Villages MSU Alumni Educational Fund.

Thanks to the Activities Committe and their hard work all year.

MSU, we love thy shadows
When twilight silence falls,
Flushing deep and softly paling
O’er ivy covered halls;
Beneath the pines we’ll gather
To give our faith so true,
Sing our love for Alma Mater
And thy praises, MSU.
