Fellow Alumni,

Wow! The 2014 Football Season has just started. If you did not make the trip to Ireland, I hope you were able to wake up early to watch the game at 8:30 a.m. We are off to a great start, winning the first game of the season. Next up, the Akron Zips!

Our book signing event, with Jay Paterno talking about his new book, Paterno Legacy Enduring Lessons from the Life and Death of My Father, was a great success. This book paints his father’s life & purpose from a son’s perspective. The book also strives to get to the truth and do the right thing by Penn State. Our event also raised money to support our fund raising efforts for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and York’s Light the Night Walk. If you want to be a part of this year’s campaign, go to: to register for the walk, or to donate to the cause.

If you missed getting an autographed book at the event, here’s your chance to win one!  Just make a donation to the LLS, sponsoring our team, and you will be entered in a drawing (held the day after the walk). Donations of $20 and over will receive two chances and if you walk with us, you will receive an additional entry!

I would also like to welcome our newest member to the PSYAS Board of Directors, alumnus Sean Clark. Sean will be working with membership and recruiting. Sean will also be hosting a Coffee & Conversations event in November. Watch for more details on that soon.

This month’s Social/Mixer will be on Wednesday, September 10th, at the John Wright Restaurant (234 N. Front Street Wrightsville, PA  17368), at 6:00 p.m. All are welcome! I hope to see you there.


For the Glory,

Bill Englar

About the Walk
This year, the PSYAS community involvement project is with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and York’s ‘Light the Night Walk’. This year’s walk will be held at Cousler Park (1060 Church Road, York, Pa  17404) on October 25, 2014. The walk is about 1.5 miles, but there are plenty of shortcuts back to home base if you get tired. The walk takes about 1/2 hour, and is all on level ground (no hills).

Even if you are not walking you can donate by clicking on ‘Donate to Team’, even if it is $1.00.

Click on ‘Join’ and don’t forget to say under TEAM: Penn State Alumni
BONUS! Sign up to walk with our team and receive a PAY IT FORWARD t-shirt, PSU sling bag and travel mug!!!

SHARE: Invite friends and family to participate with you.
