3.       PENN STATE BAKERY TOUR – Friday, June 20, 2014 at 10:00 A.M.  Just how do they make those delicious famous Penn State chocolate chip cookies as well as the many other yummy baked goods we have at Penn State events and on campus?  Join fellow chapter members for  a tour of the  Penn State Bakery.  We’re sure the tour will whet your appetite and have you looking for a glass of milk to go with those chocolate chip cookies!”  Parking is very limited and the area is permit parking only.  It is suggested that we park at either the East Deck or Arboretum parking lots and walk to the bakery area.  The bakery is located in the yellow brick Housing and Food Services building across from the Arboretum and behind the Katz Law Building.  Contact Ilene White at  to reserve a place on the tour as space is limited.

4.       SPRING GARDEN PLANTING PARTY – The Centre County Chapter Penn State Alumni Associations’ Community Garden planting date is set for Wednesday, June 4, 2014 at 9:30am.  The location is the University Drive off ramp to East College Ave (on the State College side; the best approach is from the Stadium side on University Drive).  Parking is on the clover leaf.  We are inviting Tailback Club members to join us after their meeting.  Tools & equipment provided, but bring your gloves and your favorite trowel if you prefer.  Rain or shine, so be prepared.  There are hundreds of plants to be planted so please let Mr. Green Finger (aka Al Landis) know if you can make it  or 814-237-1147 (day or evening).  A light snack and water will be provided.  The more hands the quicker we all get to our day’s activities.

6.       WE ARE LOOKING FOR SOME GREAT CHAPTER VOLUNTEERS again to answer phones at WPSU- It’s CCCPSAA night Thursday, June 5 during ‘The Grateful Dead – Dead Ahead’ at WPSU from 7:30 PM to 10 PM.  We’ll have fun enjoying the food & music….and maybe even wearing that tie-dye shirt a lot of us have somewhere in the house.   Please join us for a fun night with complimentary dinner, a gift for everyone while we enjoy taking calls and watching a new program.  Please contact Dale Hoffman at  or call 814-234-0656 to volunteer.  We would like to get 9 volunteers.  Directions: WPSU is at 120 Outreach Building, located in Innovation Park. The Outreach building is on Innovation Blvd. (Same as the Penn Stater Conference Ctr.& Hotel) Outreach building is at the east end on the right of Innovation Blvd. and there are about 5 satellite dishes in the grass on one side.

7.       SPEND A SUMMER DAY UPDATE – Training dates have been set for  SASD Thursday, July 17, 2014 and Tuesday, July 22, 2014 at the Mountain View Country Club.   Spend a Summer Day  dates are: Friday, July 25, 2014; Monday, July 28th; Thursday, July 31st; Friday, August 1st; Monday, August 4, 2014.  Linda Rohrer will provide more information in the coming weeks for all of the “veteran” and new volunteers.  If you have never participated in being a volunteer for this program, you are missing out on a wonderful opportunity to showcase Penn State to prospective students.  Contact Linda at  to be included in future mailings.

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  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……………………..
