The PASAE Summer Outing Task Force is busily working to plan a memorable event! This year‟s
Summer Outing will be held August 2 in Hershey. Registration brochures were mailed to all
PASAE members earlier this week.

To get everyone thinking about the Summer Outing, the Task Force offers the following tip for
participating: Not a Golfer? Relax and rejuvenate at the Spa at the Hotel Hershey and then
swing it up during the networking luncheon at Hershey Country Club. That‟s right – the
Summer Outing is more than just a golf event. You can visit the Spa at the Hotel Hershey or
spend a day at Hersheypark. Hershey Leadership and Development Center will conduct a team-
building educational session for those who want to mix business and fun. Golfers can enjoy a
morning at the beautiful Hershey Country Club. All participants are invited to mingle at a luncheon
at Hershey Country Club. Registration details are available at or CLICK HERE to
download a registration flyer.

A limited number of spa packages are available. These packages will go fast – please reserve
your place at the spa today! Spa details are available at or on the Summer
Outing registration flyer.

This year’s Summer Outing will offer an added incentive for you to encourage your
colleagues to attend – If you attend the Summer Outing and recruit an attendee who has not
participated in a PASAE Summer Outing for the past two years, both of you will be entered into a
drawing for a special prize! Additional details will be announced soon.

We need participants and sponsors for the outing. Plan NOW to be a part of this special day. The
Grand Sponsorship - $3,500 – includes your logo embroidered on 144 shirts plus 4
registrations. For $1,500, Gold Sponsors get mention in all printed materials, signage at one
hole and four registrations. For $500 Hole Sponsors get mention in the program, signage at one
