I would like to thank everyone who supported the 2009 Student Send Off on 
Sunday, Aug. 9th at Western Branch Lanes in Chesapeake, VA. We had a very 
successful event and the newest VA Tech Hokies really enjoyed the bowling and 
meeting each other. The pizzas, drink, and bowling were all well received, and 
the parents, alumni, and students all had a fun time while demonstrating that 
"there is" a support system for African-American students attending VT.

Because of the lateness in making arrangements and sending out invitations to 
the students this year, we had a smaller than normal turn out. To mitigate this 
for next year, we have already begun planning the 2010 Student Send Off by 
reserving the bowling alley in advance. So mark your calendars for July 25, 
2010 !!!

I've attached a couple of pictures from the event.

If you would still like to donate to the organization to offset the cost of the 
event, it is not too late. Just mail your contribution check made out to
