LADIES HOLIDAY BRUNCH

It’s the event all the ladies wait for each year!!!  Saturday, December 10, take a break from the holiday rush and join your fellow Buckeye women for our festive annual brunch. The fun starts at 11 am, and this year it will be held at Bravo Restaurant in the Crosswoods complex in Worthington, just north of 270 off 23 (High St). We have a private room reserved for our members. This is a great event for you to bring a friend who may be interested in learning more about our club.

HOLIDAY PARTY / GIFT EXCHANGE

Operation Buckeye

As most of you know, the holidays will be here before you know it.  For those who have friends and family serving in our military services overseas, it can be a difficult time. There is a wonderful organization called Operation Buckeye, whose volunteers pack and ship thousands of care packages each year to these military personnel.  We want to help provide as many items as possible this year for their shipments.

Click Here for:  Operation Buckeye Item List of the most-requested items from our service-members.  If you are able to provide some items from this list, would you please contribute to our club’s donation to Operation Buckeye?
We will make it as easy as possible:  You gather the items, and we can arrange either a pickup from you, or a place for you to drop them off.

Thank you so much for your generosity, to help those who are defending our freedom!

 

Exam Week Goodie Bags – Save your Halloween Candy!!

Did you get too much candy when you went trick-or-treating?  Or do you have leftovers because not enough children came to visit you?  We have a great use for these goodies!!

The Franklin County OSU Alumni Club will be putting together goodie bags again this year for a group of students in one of the dorms.  Candy, gum, pencils, any little trinkets you think a college kid would appreciate while studying for fall semester exams — bring them to us!

We will collect items at our November meeting, or you can contact us to arrange a drop off or pick up.  Then we’ll choose a night to pack the bags, and another night to deliver them to the dorms.

You are welcome to participate in any of the three steps — gathering supplies, packing the bags, or delivering.  Just email us at osualumnifranklincounty@yahoo.com  and let us know what you can do.

Two of our scholarship recipients will be participating in this project, so its a great opportunity for you to get to meet some great students!
Contact today and let us know what you can do!
