SCARLET VS. GRAY SPRING FOOTBALL

What a better way to kick off Spring than to enjoy some Buckeye Football!!  The Scarlet vs. Gray Football game will be on Saturday, April 14 this year.  We will order a block of tickets, and we’ll host our traditional tailgate party.  Game time is usually around 1:00 pm, following a lacrosse game, but that is not yet confirmed.

You can order your tickets now!  The $15 cost includes your game ticket AND all the food and beverages at the tailgate (rain or shine – we are “covered”) so bring the whole family!  There will be cheerleaders, the Best Damn Band in the Land, and of course Coach Meyer will lead the team in putting on a “Show in the ‘Shoe”!

“Sound the Alarm” Community Service Event


The Franklin County OSU Alumni Club has been presented with another exciting Community Service opportunity for our members.
On Saturday, June 9 we will participate in “Sound the Alarm,” a Red Cross program that helps install smoke alarms in disadvantaged neighborhoods in the city.

Sound the Alarm is a series of home fire safety and smoke alarm installation events nationwide. Volunteers will install 100,000 free smoke alarms in lower socio-economic neighborhoods, culminating in the installation of the one millionth smoke alarm!  Training will be provided and an experienced leader will accompany each group.

Since 2014, the Red Cross, in partnership with fire departments and other local groups, has visited homes installing free smoke alarms, replacing batteries in existing alarms and providing fire prevention and safety education to prevent needless tragedies. Join us today in helping to save lives.

To sign up for this event, please RSVP to Ron at abelcom123@yahoo.com.  Include your NAME, CELL PHONE NUMBER (so we can reach you if there is a last-minute change), and the NUMBER of people attending.  Questions?  Call Ron at 614-420-2736.

Thank you for supporting our community service efforts!
