‘Get Your Red On’ and come back to Homecoming 2012

A celebration of Cardinal camaraderie awaits Lamar University alumni during LU Homecoming 2012 festivities Saturday, Oct. 13.

The alumni will get their red on for an alumni tailgate party from 5 to 6:30 p.m. on the porch of the Montagne Center. The Homecoming celebration precedes the 7 p.m. kickoff when the Lamar Cardinals take on the War Hawks of McMurry University.

Lamar alumni will be admitted to the tailgate area for a nominal fee of $5, payable at the gate, which will cover pork shanks, smoked boudin balls and Cajun drumsticks, plus two beverages, said Linda LeBlanc, director of alumni affairs.
