I hope that it's ok to post this. If not, then y'all can take it off. Birmingham is getting a new/revamped alumni chapter/Penn State club. Evidently there was a chapter here ages ago that went defunct. We've finally found someone to reorganize the chapter. Former Penn State football player, Buck Paolone (class of 58 or 59, I think) has stepped up and gotten things moving. His email announcement to those who were surveyed in Alabama and responded with interest is posted below.
PENN STATE ALUMS; we all need to gather for a get-acquainted session to re-establish our Bham/Ala chapter. Three of our alums (Chris & Elaine Beegle and son Todd) have offered one of their "On Tap" locations at Hoover Inverness for our meeting.
DATE: Sat 02 May 09 TIME: 3:30pm
PLACE: On Tap Sports Cafe-Inverness Corner (website - ww.ontapsportscafe.com)
Bring family / friends if so desired. Previously, it was tentative to meet during Blue-White spring game but this was dropped...no TV broadcast by Big Ten Network nor ESPN.
Seems PSU is not Alabama - but WE ARE...PENN STATE. So, we'll enjoy each other's company and revive fond memories.
I apologize for any errors or inaccurate entries. If you know of some who did not receive this e-mail, please have them contact me. My eyes became bleary from viewing computer info and from translating not-so-clear hand-written mailed replies. C'est LaVie
Email me at mppowell at uab dot edu (is that correct millzners?) if you would like Mr. Paolone's contact information. I didn't want to post it without his permission. I know there are some fans on here that live in Tuscaloosa and other areas, so come if you can!
