It’s time once again for fun on the lawn! For the first time in a few years, we will revive our traditional excursion to Picnic with the Pops, featuring the Columbus Symphony Orchestra and the OSU Marching Band, will be held on Saturday, August 1, at the new home of the Pops series, the lawn of the Columbus Commons. Details are still being worked out, but we will be joining our friends from the College of Education Alumni Society and other alumni for this annual performance. Please keep the date open and keep watching your email, future newsletters, and our website for further details. Go Bucks!


Join us for our fourth annual Happy Hour at the OSU Faculty Club on campus Thursday, June 25, from 5 to 7 pm. This is an opportunity for those of you who are not members of the Faculty Club to see the facility and sample some food and beverages, as well as time to socialize with other Buckeye Alumni. There is plenty of parking available around the Faculty Club. Some complementary hors d’oeuvres will be provided, along with a cash bar; additional appetizers are available as well. There is also a dinner following the event, if you wish to stay. To attend the Happy Hour, please sign up in advance online, by mail, or by phone for just $5, so we know how many to expect. Driving and parking pass directions will be sent when you register.


Join us for a new Community Service project this year as
we volunteer at Unverferth House, a temporary home
away from home for families and patients of the OSU
Medical Center. This facility started in memory of Don
Unverferth, an OSU football player who later became a
surgeon and served our country as a military physician.

We need about 10 volunteers, half of whom will be
preparing lunch for the patients and their families on
Saturday July 20, from 10 am to 1 pm. The others will
get to do some gardening work outside, if you prefer. If
you are able to volunteer for this event, please RSVP to
Karyn Johnson (englanke@yahoo.com or 614-822-
1430) with your name, phone number, and email address.

Thank you for supporting our community service efforts!
