On Friday, October 11, the Penn State Wilkes-Barre Alumni Constituent Society and Penn State Wilkes-Barre students are offering a bus trip to University Park to walk in the annual Homecoming Parade.

The bus will depart from the Penn State Wilkes-Barre gym parking lot at 1 p.m. returning to campus around 12 midnight. All ages are invited to attend to show their Penn State pride.

The trip costs $15 per person and includes bus transportation, t-shirt, and dinner. Seating is limited and a sellout is expected.

On Saturday, November 9, the Penn State Wilkes-Barre Alumni Constituent Society will host its annual TV Tailgate Party for the Penn State fans in Northeastern Pennsylvania.

The party, scheduled once again for Penn State’s match-up against the Minnesota Golden Gophers, boasts tailgate style food and drinks, as well as a halftime raffle and a 50/50 drawing. The party gets underway half an hour before the game’s kickoff at the River Grille in Wilkes-Barre, and wraps up a half hour after the game ends.

Official game time has not yet been released but will either be a 12 noon or 3:30 pm start. Cost per person is $28 and all attendees must be 21 or older. This event has always been a sellout; please reserve your tickets early.

For more information and to RSVP, please contact Karen Brace-Hodle in the Penn State Wilkes-Barre Alumni and Development Office at 570-675-9228 or Payment is required at the time of reservation.
