Allegheny Valley Hospital to host alumni breakfast

The beginning of summer is right around the corner and so is the spring alumni breakfast, "Penn State A.M." The annual breakfast social has been a staple for the Alle-Kiski Society and Penn State New Kensington since 2003.

The event goes retro this year with Allegheny Valley Hospital hosting the next breakfast at 8 a.m. Wednesday, May 15, at its facility in Natrona Heights. The hospital hosted the 2004 breakfast event. Participants will be able to start the work day by joining fellow Penn Staters for a free breakfast, featuring Happy Valley's famous "grilled stickies."

Co-hosted by Ned Laubacher, executive vice president of the eastern corridor for Allegheny Valley Hospital and Forbes Regional Hospital of the West Penn Allegheny Health System, and the Alle-Kiski Alumni Society, the event is geared toward alumni who live and work in the greater Alle-Kiski Valley area. It is a chance to get together with old friends and receive an update on the current buzz at Penn State and the region.

Special guest speakers include Laubacher, who will speak on “Changes in the Health Care Industry,” and Alan Janesch, director of the Grassroots Network of the Penn State Alumni Association who will give an update on what is trending at Penn State. A tour of the emergency department and lifeflight facilities will be available after the breakfast.

In addition to the free breakfast, there are special door prizes including a free entry fee ($110 value), for the 14th annual Alumni Golf Scramble, scheduled to take place at 11 a.m. Friday, Aug. 12, at The Links at Spring Church.

To RSVP for the breakfast, contact Bill Woodard at 724 334-6049 or
