In a brief ceremony Thursday at 9 a.m. at the Maureen and Mike Mansfield Library on campus, the folks behind the making of a recent documentary of the 1970s Missoula phenomenon will present a $2,000 check to Bonnie Allen, dean of the library. “We’ll give more in the future. We just have to see what happens,” said Bob McCue, executive director of the film. Allen will use the opportunity to present a plaque from the university that acknowledges the work of the students who put on the benefit keggers from 1972 to 1979. It was initially presented at the October screening, and will hang in the library.

Just as some of the proceeds of bygone Aber Day Keggers went to benefit the library, so too will sales of the documentary help raise money for university programs. But unlike in years past, this time the library will be giving something back: its official thanks.
On October 8, 2009 Kegger premiered at the University Theater to an excited crowd. Here are some pictures from the event. The Kegger Chairmen, Tom Staples ('77), Bill Junkermier ('76), Jeff McNaught ('78) and Bob McCue ('79) . Jeff McNaught, Bonnie Allen and Bob McCue on stage Jeff McNaught, Bruce
