Alumni society meeting dates changed for March and April
THIRD TUESDAY OF THE MONTH IN
CAMPUS CONFERENCE CENTER
6:30 p.m., March 19 and April 15
Due to scheduling conflicts, the March and April meetings of the Alle-Kiski Society have been moved back a day to the third Tuesday of the month, March 19 and April 15, at 6:30 p.m. in the Conference Center at Penn State New Kensington.
The society’s usual meeting date is the third Monday of the month. New and recent Penn State graduates are encouraged to attend the monthly meetings.
Based at the New Kensington campus, the Alle-Kiski Society is the local chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association and represents the 7,000 Penn State alumni living in the Alle-Kiski Valley. The society engages in campus and community projects throughout the year, including social and fundraising events that benefit the society's endowed scholarship.
The spring fundraiser is the annual Bowl-a-thon, and it is scheduled from 1 to 4 p.m., Sunday, April 7, at Wildlife Lanes in Lower Burrell. This is a family fun event for students, parents, alumni, faculty, staff and friends of Penn State. The entry fee is $20 and includes three games and shoe rental. Four- or five-person teams may sign up, or individuals may sign up and be assigned to a short-handed team. The bowl-a-thon is the alumni group's major fundraiser in the spring, and the proceeds support the society’s endowed scholarship and campus projects. Lane sponsorships are available for $50 and $100.
