Fellow Alumni,

Well…it looks like Northwestern found some holes in our offensive line during our Homecoming football game… we’re confident the Lions will regroup, make some adjustments and be ready to take on Michigan on October 11th.

IMG_0200Just to keep you updated on our fundraising efforts for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and York’s ‘Light the Night’ walk, our book signing event with Jay Paterno, raised over $500, with a total of $937 to date. We have 3 1/2 weeks to raise another $63, to reach our goal of $1,000. We will do it!! I want to thank Iona Conlon, for arranging the book signing fundraiser, as well as thanking everyone else who helped us with this cause. We also put a Penn State themed basket  together for a silent auction at the spaghetti dinner fundraiser on Saturday night.  To keep track of where we are at with our goal, go to: IMG_0322

IMG_0343If you missed getting an autographed book at the Jay Paterno book signing 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!

Our Santa for Soldiers Fundraiser, with our Veteran Alumni and Veteran Students, is just getting started. Stay tuned for more details.

This month’s Social / Mixer is at Quaker Steak & Lube (1411 Kenneth Road, York, Pa 17404), at 6:00 PM, on Wednesday, October 8th. . We thought we would try someplace new this month, for those that wanted to venture out and see what it is like. So, come out and join us!  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’. The 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.
