LA Spartan Spotlight – Reagan Library

ReaganMSUAA group shot2

The LA Spartans gathered at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, CA on April 27.  Before touring the library and Air Force One, our group enjoyed brunch while listening fellow Spartan Dale Petroskey.  Dale is a graduate of MSU’s Journalism school (’78)  and worked as the former Assistant Press Secretary to President Reagan.   LASpartan.DaleLASpartanMSUAA’s Tim Bograkos and MSULA President Anne Marie Lasher presented Dale with a panoramic photo of the Rose Bowl.  Unfortunately the LA Spartans are losing Dale and his wife Ann to the Dallas Spartans as Dale recently accepted the position of President and CEO of the Dallas Chamber of Commerce.

Global Day of Service

The Los Angeles Spartans volunteered together on April 12 at the Union Rescue Mission in downtown LA.  Spartans passed out clothing, personal care items and shoes to the many deserving homeless people who are living on Skid Row.  It was a truly rewarding experience.  Our next volunteer event will be in November, stay tuned for details.MSU volunteer
