East coast Jayhawks celebrate ‘Hawk Days of Summer

Posted on Aug 5, 2013 in Alumni News and News

Summer might be winding down– fall classes start in three short weeks!– but the ‘Hawk Days of Summer tour is still going strong as August begins.

Recently, Danny Lewis, director of alumni programs spent several days on the east coast visiting Jayhawks in Philadelphia, Washington, D.C. and Maryland. KU’s vice chancellor for public affairs, Tim Caboni, also attended all three events to share news from the Hill with alumni, fans and friends.

One of the highlights from the event at the Hewitts’ home was a cruise on the Severn River past the U.S. Naval Academy (click here to see the photo that Caboni posted on Twitter).

David Healy, j’73, posted photos from the afternoon, taken by Bill Dean, on his website. Click here if you want to be jealous of everyone who enjoyed the beautiful beach house, complete with a tiki bar and six-foot inflatable Jayhawk!
