First Friday Lunch - March 2, 2012

Join us for First Fridays, a monthly recurring event for undergraduate and graduate Princeton alumni, graduate students, and parents.  On the first Friday of each month, area alumni and their guests will meet to enjoy a prix fixe luncheon buffet at the Nassau Club in downtown Princeton.  As a special bonus for PA3, a Princeton PhD candidate will present his/her work to the group in this informal setting.  Topics vary monthly and are always interesting!

This month, we will be joined by Ph.D Candidate Sarah Fawcett, of the Department of Geosciences. Sarah will talk with us about the ocean's "biological pump", the storage of atmospheric CO2 fixed as biomass in the deep ocean and the extent to which different phytoplankton drive this process.

Specially priced at $25/person (or $30 if you choose not to pay PA3's annual dues), lunch includes the Nassau Club’s full buffet as well as a complementary beverage (wine, beer, soft drink). Pre-registration is required. 

>> Looking forward to seeing your orange and black! <<

Date: Friday, March 2nd, 2012
Time: 12 noon - 2 pm
Location: Nassau Club, 6 Mercer St, Princeton, NJ
Nassau Club membership is not necessary to attend this event.
For more information, contact Lydia Zaininger '83 .

We have been able to arrange a dedicated, private tour of the exhibition with the curator, Jody Seasonwein, to be held on Sunday, April 22 at 2 pm -- exclusively for PA3 members.  There will be no charge for the tour, but we are limited to 25 participants because of space limitations of the galleries.  The first 25 to sign up will be included.  Further details will be provided.  If there is a lot of demand beyond the 25, we will try to arrange a second private tour with a trained docent on a subsequent date.
