Alle-Kiski Society monthly meeting Tuesday, March 19

The Alle-Kiski Society will hold its regular monthly meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 19, in the Conference Center at Penn State New Kensington. Friends, parents and alumni of Penn State are encouraged to attend and reconnect with the campus.

The March monthly meeting, as well as April’s meeting, were moved back a day, to the third Tuesday of the month, due to scheduling conflicts. The normal meeting schedule, third Monday, will resume in May.

Top agenda item is the society’s annual Alumni Bowl-a-Thon, set for 1 p.m. Sunday, April 7, at Wildlife Lanes in Lower Burrell, Pa. Proceeds from the 11th annual event benefit campus projects and the Alle-Kiski Society Endowed Scholarship, which funds yearly awards to campus undergraduates.

The entry fee is $20 and includes three games and shoe rental. Four- or five-person teams may sign up, or individuals may sign up and be assigned to a short-handed team. Commensurate with their 10-pin acumen, faculty, staff, alumni and friends are encouraged to roll a few “turkeys" (three consecutive strikes) or “buzzards” (three consecutive open frames) to raise dollars for the society's scholarship fund.

Lane sponsorships are the backbone of the fundraising effort. With varying perks, the sponsorships are available on two levels, “Big Ten” for $100 and “Nittany Lion,” for $50. Businesses and individuals are encouraged to invest in campus students by taking advantage of sponsorship opportunities.
