More than 85 alumni, friends, students, faculty and staff have accepted the invitation from Belle and Bob La Follette to attend Hillside Fest at their home at the Observatory Hill Office Building (aka the La Follette School) on Tuesday, July 20.
About 30 alumni will join faculty, staff and about 20 students from 5 to 7 p.m. on the lawns of the La Follette School to grill, share side dishes, play croquet and ladder golf, socialize and maybe even network. Inclement weather will move the party inside, but the forecast for the early evening looks promising and relatively cool.
Children, families and friends are welcome. Free parking is available after 4:30 p.m. in lot 26 at the school and along Observatory Drive and lot 34 across Observatory Drive from the La Follette School (between Liz Waters Hall and Tripp Commons).
