Individual organizations hosting this event are Penn State Schuylkill, Hazleton, Wilkes-Barre, and Worthington Scranton alumni societies, and the Anthracite, Greater Scranton, Hazleton, Schuylkill, Susquehanna Valley and Wyoming Valley chapters of the Penn State Alumni Association. All are welcome!
