Purdue Veterinary Medicine faculty and staff were treated to a sixties-themed appreciation event last Thursday, August 15, in the “Far Out” Lynn Hall Courtyard.  The annual appreciation event featured creative decorations and “drive-in” themed refreshments including hot dogs, hamburgers, and root beer floats. Over 200 people participated in the festivities and took home a commemorative PVM 60th Anniversary mug. Some even took time to brag on their fellow colleagues by posting complimentary notes on a tie-dye draped bulletin board.

Special thanks to the event planning committee including Megan Brashear, Barb Cochran, Steve Hooser, Tami Lind, Brandi Maxie, Julie Roahrig, Nicole Rosen, Donna Tudor, Brittany Vale, and Director of Alumni Relations and Special Events Susan Xioufaridou for the awesome ideas and their efforts setting up and manning the event with special help from Grace Craig, Tricia Johnson, and Chelsi Laposi

And thanks to PVM’s fantastic group of dedicated faculty and staff who are indeed “Groovy!”
