Centre County Chapter Nittany News Gets a New Look

We’ve updated the look of our newsletter to bring a more unified format to communications coming from our parent organization, The Penn State Alumni Association and your local chapter. In the coming months, check out some fun new features and interesting content.

A big THANK YOU goes out to long-time chapter member, Mark Parfitt for offering his time and talents to this undertaking!


Join Us For Our September Happy Hour

We will meet at The Penn Stater, Innovation Park, in the Orchid Room on Friday, September 22 from 5 to 7pm. The restaurant is most easily accessed from the rear parking area.

Come enjoy cocktails, good food and great conversation with your fellow alumni. The Centre County Chapter provides the appetizers. Meet new members or bring some friends along with you to join the chapter.  There is a $5 charge for non-members which is waived if you become a member.  Membership forms will be available

Centre County United Way DAY OF CARING

The PNC Bank Day of Caring is about service to the community. It is a day when people across Centre County join together to help the non-profit organizations that do so much for our neighbors. It is a day we put the mantra LIVE UNITED into Action! The 2017 Day of Caring will be held Thursday, October 5.

The Centre County Chapter is forming a team to participate in this tremendous event. Details on our assigned project site and scope will be announced as they are available. All projects take place at local non-profits, historical sites, municipal properties and parks.

Do you or your friends have Verizon email?
Make sure you’re still receiving our newsletters

An issue recently arose with email customers. There was a change that occurred when Verizon merged with AOL, that caused a failure in the delivery of our newsletter without notifying us of the failure. If you have friends who are Verizon customers and are not getting our correspondence, please help us get the word out that they need to contact Verizon to allow our newsletter to be delivered.
