Recap of Recent Events
Joe Paterno If you missed Joe Paterno at the
Radisson Penn Harris June 9, he is very optimistic
about this year’s squad. He likes the talent, but he
needs to see some leaders step up. Stay informed
It was such a huge success that a
review seems in order. A record amount of money,
$4800, was raised. More golfers and dinner guests
attended this event than any other Club sponsored golf
outing. And Tom Bradley was a big hit.
Special thanks to golf committee chair Jen Risser. Her
organizational skills and enthusiasm were evident. Our
corporate sponsors were phenomenal. Madison
Apartment Group sponsored Tom Bradley. M&T Bank
sponsored the dinner, and Wheatland Credit Union
sponsored our beverage cart. Their help was key to
making this event the best one yet. No pressure for
next year, right!
Speaking of next year, the outing will again be at
Groff’s Farm on Friday May 9th. Stay tuned for details.
