8.       BUTTONS, BUTTONS, WHO HAS BUTTONS????? – Spring cleaning is upon us.  When cleaning out those closets, storage areas and drawers look for old football buttons to donate to CCCPSAA.  The chapter can use those from 1999 and earlier.  We are swamped with buttons  dated from 2,000 to present, and storage space is limited.  However, we can always use bowl buttons regardless of their vintage.  You may contact Don Miller at dmillerpsu@comcast.net  or call at home 234-3719  or cell 574-4884 and Don will make arrangements to have them picked up.   Last year over $2000 for our scholarship funds was collected from donations made by those who stopped by our Welcome Booth.   Thanks for your consideration!  WE ARE……………………..

20130608_124Hi Everyone,

It’s that time of the year again!  Please join our Mr. Green Finger for our annual garden planting.  This year we will be planting and partying  on Wednesday morning at 930 a. m., June 4th.  CCCPSAA, Tailback Club, Family & Friends come join us for the  Garden Party.  The location is the clover leaf at University Drive and East College Ave (on the State College side; best approach is from the Stadium side on University Drive). Parking is on the cloverleaf.  Tools & equipment provided. Bring your favorite spade, gloves and knee pads if you prefer.    We will be in the garden on the right as you come down the ramp.  Those going to the Tailback club don’t forget to bring your wellies.  We will be playing in the dirt at the direction of Mr. Green Finger.  The more volunteers to help and have fun, the quicker we will get all the plants into the ground and you will be off to your next scheduled event.    Hopefully, this year we are planting late enough to avoid the frost we had last spring.  This is a great community improvement and you can enjoy the beautiful garden through the summer into the fall and know your efforts created this beautiful location in State College.  See you there for so fun in the dirt!!!!!
