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 email@example.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.
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 ordered 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.
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”!
The Buckeye Women’s Basketball team is ranked #9 in the country at the start of this season!
The Franklin County OSU Alumni Club will have a block of tickets to the Lady Buckeyes’ last weekend home game of the season, vs. Purdue, on Sunday, Feb. 18, at 1:00 pm. We will host our usual “Tailgate” party in the Huntington Club (2nd level of the Schottenstein Center).
DEADLINE TO ORDER was Thursday, Feb 1
In January we begin the most important task that we accomplish each year: the awarding of an OSU scholarship to a deserving Franklin County high school senior. The first step of that process is reading the applications. You will be truly impressed by the quality of the candidates we receive for the scholarship!
We need volunteers to read and score the applications. This process will begin around January 13 and will be completed by the end of that month. If you want to assist, please contact Brad Farmer, 614-371-5523 or firstname.lastname@example.org for details ASAP.
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!
Back by popular demand – Wine Tasting! We will gather at the Wine Bistro on Lane Avenue on Wednesday, November 1, from 6:30 to 8 pm.
