Although the Yellow Jackets did not manage to pull out a win in overtime against the Virginia Tech Hokies, the folks who came to support Georgia Tech and Lutheran Services of Georgia had plenty to cheer for during Lutheran Day at Georgia Tech. Inside McCamish Pavilion, the large new basketball arena where Georgia Tech plays its games, the Lutheran fans were greeted near the end of the first half by a famous figure in Yellow Jacket circles: Buzz, the school mascot. He shook hands with some of the fans and then posed in a few pictures with excited youth.
More than thirty people came to Lutheran Day at Georgia Tech, including staff from LSG, members of Lutheran Volunteer Corps, and families from local Lutheran congregations. “Lutheran Day was a lot of fun,” said Bob Gibeling, LSG’s Volunteer Coordinator, “especially when Buzz came over to greet the Lutherans during the game.” Bob also noted that more people came to the game than in previous years and reflected on the event’s importance. “It’s great to see the event grow each year since it provides an opportunity to talk about the great work that Lutheran Services of Georgia does while enjoying each other’s company.” The scoreboard notwithstanding, the game was a win for everyone who supported LSG!
