Here are some of the chapter's recent events
June Happy Hour at Union Jack's of Columbia
Holiday Trivia contest was such a hit. It was so much fun for us all to try to answer the holiday questions from classic movies and songs! I think A Christmas Story is going to gain some viewers this holiday season! Thanks to Amanda for pulling it all together!
Iowa Game Half Time Chat
We held a a Zoom video chat on 11/21 at halftime of the Iowa football game. There wasn't much to cheer about with the game, but it gave us all a chance to commiserate. And things got better after that for our Lions so maybe they heard all of our wisdom and great ideas for turning the season around!
July Virtual Happy Hour with PSU Trivia!
We held our joint Penn State Trivia Event with the Potomac Valley Chapter - Penn State Alumni Association on Friday, July 24th and it was universally agreed to be a really great time! Big thanks to Camila for coming up with the questions and Sherry for being our MC and herding us cats! We'd love to hear from you what you thought about the event if you attended or what we can do in the future that would interest you.
Virtual Happy Hour - PSU Bingo!
We held another Virtual Happy Hour on Thursday, June 25 and had a group of about 13 attendees. We had a great time catching up with our fellow chapter members and we played several rounds of Penn State Bingo. Everyone agreed it was a lot of fun playing even though some of didn't win...
Virtual Happy Hour - Cinco De Mayo!
We held our first Virtual Happy Hour on Tuesday May 5th and had a group of about 12 attendees. It was very different from our typical happy hours, but we still had fun! Many of us tried out the drink recipes, including the Vitamin C and the Blue & White Quarantinis. Zoom worked out well for us - no issues at all with quality or uninvited guests.
Paint & Sip Party
We had a really great Paint & Sip Party on Tuesday 2/25/2020! 13 people attended and everyone came out with their own Nittany Lion painting. Ericka was the instructor and covered the step-by-step instructions to help everyone along. There were two door prizes that were given out as well - Lisa Garrett (PSU beach towel and PSU koozie) & Carolee White (PSU wine beverage holder and PSU bottle opener). Thanks to everyone who attended and a big thanks to Amanda Dawson-Currin who setup the event!
2019-2020 Fooball Watching Parties
Every game we meet up at Glory Days Grill in Ellicot City to watch the Nittany Lions Football games. Glory Days is generous enough to contribute a percentage of the food purchase to our scholarship fund. It's great to cheer on our Lions with a big group!
Chapter Happy Hours
Normally, the chapter holds a happy hour at various locations in the area. Some previous locations were Rams Head Tavern in Savage, Walker's Tap & Table in Glenwood, The Corner Stable in Columbia, and Guiness Open Gate Brewery in Halethorpe. They're always a ton of fun and a chance to catch up with all your fellow PSU Friends & Family!
