Truman Birthday Celebration and Senior Picnic Planned

The University and Sodexho will host the annual Harry S. Truman birthday celebration picnic from 11 a.m.-2 p.m., May 11, on the Mall. This year’s picnic occurs on the 10th anniversary of the Missouri Legislature approving Senate Bill 340, which changed the name of Northeast Missouri State University to Truman State University. Graduating seniors will be treated to lunch sponsored by the Truman Alumni Association, TRUE (Student Alumni Council) and the Office of Advancement.

The picnic will include freshly grilled hamburgers, hot dogs, barbecued chicken, veggie burgers, various salads, condiments, cookies, birthday cake, ice cream and drinks. The lunch will be available to students, faculty and staff for $5 with advance reservations and $6 at the event. Students graduating in May eat for free with their student ID.

Non-graduating students, faculty and staff must make their advance reservations by noon on May 10. Graduating seniors do not need to make reservations.
