Pennsylvania "Taste of Philly" Night

USAFA welcomed the SE Pennsylvania Parent Club last month with their 1st Annual Pennsylvania "Taste of Philly" Night.

Over 50 Cadets attended the event, with 2 Parents from the SE Pennsylvania Parent Club and 1 additional volunteer.


The menu consisted of Philly Cheesesteaks, with many sides to choose from like soft pretzels, Utz and Herrs chips, and Red Bull. For dessert Cadets got to enjoy Pizzookies and TastyKakes. All of which Cadets were able to have seconds, and even leftovers to take back to their squadrons.
