This year the Community Service team of the Franklin County OSU Alumni Club will partner again with the Driven Foundation to help provide school supplies to underprivileged children.  Former Buckeye football player Roy Hall Jr. heads up this organization, which provides a variety of activities throughout the year for children in the Columbus area.  Help us collect these items for their “Backpack Giveback.”

If you can provide any quantity of these supplies, please bring them to one of our monthly board meetings in June & July. Or contact Karyn Johnson (englanke@yahoo.com) to arrange for another drop-off location or if you have questions.

Join us for Theatre in the Park

Join us for a performance of “A Tale of Two Cities” by Charles Dickens, on Saturday, July 9 at 8 pm in Schiller Park in German Village. There is no charge for admission, but donations are collected during the intermission. The performance will end around 10:30 PM.

Bring your own blanket or chair, and beverages and food if you’d like.  We will be sitting together in an area just west of the control booth in the grassy area on the slope in front of the stage. Look for our group and we will try and have a Buckeye flag up. We are not permitted to save area on the lawn or put up a tent, so plan on arriving by 7 pm if you want to be  together with our group.

Parking is available in the Schiller Park Rec Center or on area streets.

For area restaurants where you can purchase your dinner, go to www.germanvillage.com and click on “Exploring the Village” and then click “dine”

For additional information about the performance go to “theactorstheatre.org.”

Inclement weather: If the show is going to be cancelled or delayed, Actors Guild will post this information on their website or social media after 7 PM on the day of the performance. Only in extreme cases are weather delays or cancellations posted prior to 7 PM.

If you’re planning to join us, please send us a note so we know how much space to try to save.  Drop us an email at OSUAlumniFranklinCounty@yahoo.com
