November 10th - Tiger Tailgate and Football vs Yale

UPDATE: We are in the 2nd row of Lot D! Look for the orange balloons above the 30ft food-filled tent!

This years's helmet design
features an inversion of
the orange and black.
The PAAEC is excited to host its biennial tailgate; a bonfire is on the line as our Tigers (3-1 Ivy) take on the Bulldogs! Before heading to the game, join us for a spectacular brunch that will include salmon & cream cheese bagels, sandwiches (both pre-made subs/grinders and “build-your-own”), hamburgers, hotdogs, chili, cornbread, assorted cheeses, brownies, mimosas*, beer*, wine*, assorted soft drinks, juices, and bottled water.

Please let us know if you're planning to attend (; 917-612-4334) as even rough numbers will help us prepare. Also, please also inform us if you can help (a) prep (b) set up and/or (c) clean up. It's a big event and we appreciate any and all help!

October 14th - Apple Picking (and Other Fall Fun)!

Diagram of the corn maze at Lyman Orchards
Meet tigers and their families from both the PAAEC and PACC at this joint event to celebrate fall! Pick your own apples from their orchards, get a pumpkin for Halloween from their patch, navigate your way through the corn maze, and get some treats (fudge, pies, maple sugar) to take home from their Apple Barrel farm store!

We will be meeting at the apple-picking stand at Lyman Orchards in Middlefield, CT at 1:30 pm. (Map below.)

In case of questions, feel free to contact Hope Connolly (PACC) at 609-933-9150 or Daniel Gadala-Maria (PAAEC) at 803-446-5467. $1 discounts on corn maze tickets are available by pre-purchasing on their website
