We are joining with Tuscarawas County OSU Alumni for their presentation of Maurice Hall, former OSU football star (member of the 2002 national championship team) who is now pursuing his acting, writing, and directing career in Hollywood.  He has appeared in several popular tv shows on major networks, and also wrote and directed programs for Amazon Prime.

Maurice’s production company, “Mo-tivation Unlimited,” centers on five principles, Faith, Persistence, Work Ethic, Healthy Living and Education.

This live video presentation will be on Tuesday, Nov 17, at 6:30 pm.  Q&A will be available by “chat” function on Zoom.  There is no cost to participate, but you must pre-register by emailing us at: OSUAlumniFranklinCounty@yahoo.comYou will be sent login information for the program when it becomes available in early November.


It’s the event all the ladies wait for each year!!!Saturday, December 5, 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 we will again be at the Brio Italian Grille at Polaris Mall.  We have a private room reserved for our members, and valet parking is available. This is a great event for you to bring a friend who may be interested in learning more about our club.
As usual we will have a great meal, wonderful mimosas, and terrific gifts for everyone who attends!  We’ve all had a tough year, so we deserve to have a little fun this season.


Join us for one of our Community Service days as we volunteer at the Mid-Ohio Food Bank on Saturday, Oct. 10.  (No Buckeye Football game that week!)  We will be assisting shoppers in the pantry from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm, so you would need to arrive by 11:15 am to get instructions.  The pantry is located at 3960 Brookham Drive, in Grove City.  A map with details and a training video will be sent to you, when you RSVP.

Please call or email our Community Service Co-Chairs, Ron Kenat, ( / 614-420-2736) or Karyn Johnson, (614-822-1430 or 

Thank you for helping us “Pay it Forward” in true Buckeye Spirit!


Another event which got cancelled in the wake of the quarantine is our club favorite Wine Tasting dinner at the Wine Bistro on Lane Avenue in April. So we have re-scheduled this event for Wednesday, October 21, from 6:30 to 8 pm. 

Due to limits on the number of people allowed to gather, we cannot take any additional reservations for this event now.  Those of you who told us to keep you on the list for when the event is rescheduled, you will receive an email to confirm your availability on the new date. If multiple people cancel and we have available seats, we will advertise them to the rest of the membership.
