Alumni Winter Warm-Up
On February 22, 2020, The Friends of Chabot College hosted the Alumni Winter Warm-Up at Drake's Barrel House in San Leandro.

Thank you so much to the 50+ Alumni and Friends (and canines) who joined us for an afternoon of touring the brewery, networking, games, food, beer, and fun. We had a blast connecting with Alumni across the generations.

A special shout out goes to our Alumni-Style Bingo winners:
