Families of EWU students were welcomed to campus last weekend, March 6-8, to spend time at the 22nd annual Family Weekend. The first event of the weekend was registration and the family fun fair on Friday, but most of the action occurred Saturday night with the opening act to the fabulous Club Vegas, performed by the drag queens from Dempsey’s Brass Rail in Spokane.
