Elanco / Patterson Veterinary Tailgate Draws Close to 200
The value of Purdue Veterinary Medicine’s connection with its alumni was on display before and during the Purdue vs. Notre Dame football game Saturday, September 14, in a grand finale to the PVM 2013 Fall Conference for Veterinarians and Veterinary Technicians. The evening game was broadcast on ABC-TV, and that brought the iconic Goodyear Blimp to the skies over Ross-Ade Stadium in time for the pre-game festivities. Three hours before the 8:00 p.m. kick-off, Purdue Veterinary Medicine alumni flocked to a pre-game tailgate sponsored by Elanco and Patterson Veterinary. With a typical tailgate menu including burgers and brats, the event in “Tent City” at the Rankin Track near Slayter Center attracted a crowd of close to 200 alumni, faculty, staff, students and other guests. The grassy track infield also provided the perfect setting for cornhole and other games.
