From the Co-Author of The Penn State Blue: A Century of Pride and Precision and Into the Game: The Penn State Blue Band 1999 to 2009, comes a brand new history book about Penn State:
Arcadia Postcard History Series: Penn State University
Marvel at the history of Penn State using only picture postcards to illustrate its narrative. The book uses images from as far back as 1859 to today to showcase the many buildings and activities that no longer exist on the University Park campus.
Through a special relationship with your local Penn State Alumni Chapter, this book is being offered at a discounted rate. As well as the discount, each copy will be signed by the author, Thomas E. Range II!
Order your signed copy today using the order form below.
Signed Copies of the Blue Band history books are also still available! Each book purchased through your association will be autographed by both authors as well! The books would make a perfect holiday gift!
Orders are due July 31, 2016 with delivery sometime during the first week of September!
All books must be picked up from Endwell, NY. Extra charge for delivery via US mail.
We have the opportunity to help with Spiedie Fest Parking while raising money! This is a fun event and a great fundraiser to help with our chapter scholarships. As the cars come in to the parking lot at SUNY Broome for the Spiedie Fest there are money collectors, flaggers to guide the parking and counters to help with getting guests on the busses. That’s where your help is needed. We sign up for a few hours and help with the parking and in turn we get a portion of the profits. These profits are based on how many hours we have volunteers helping, so the more hours we have people there, the more we will earn to contribute to our scholarship fund.
There are several nonprofit groups participating so the sooner you can sign up, the sooner we can secure our spots. The following is a list of available times we can volunteer
The following times are available:
Friday, August 5
Saturday, August 6
Sunday, August 7
Please email or call Sue Fetherolf if you have any questions firstname.lastname@example.org or 759-0427
This is a great opportunity to help our chapter’s scholarship fund with a very easy fundraiser. Please help support our future Penn Staters and sign up to help with Spiedie Fest Parking very soon.
We are…..parking cars!

Your Greater Binghamton Chapter is pleased to announce that it has just been given the opportunity to apply for additional football tickets to one select game this fall. Access to these tickets by the chapter is based on a special drawing held by the Parent Penn State Alumni Association. We have selected the Temple Game since it is on Sept. 17th and offers the opportunity for family and friends to enjoy an early season day at Penn State tailgating and visiting the campus. Tickets are $80 each which includes a $10 donation to our scholarship fund. As a family and friends special for those purchasing 4 or more tickets we will include one general parking pass (game day value $40) at no additional cost.
