Alumni host special event

The Penn State Wilkes-Barre Alumni Constituent Society will host a TV tailgating party on Saturday, Oct. 18, at The Waterfront in Plains. Catch all the Homecoming action starting at 3:30 p.m., as the third-ranked Nittany Lions take on the Wolverines from Michigan.

From a delicious tailgate style menu to a raffle at half-time, the Wilkes-Barre Alumni Society will roll out the red carpet for over 50 Penn Staters who will be attending the special event. The party is open to the public and the cost is $20 per person. Tickets can be purchased by calling Penn State Wilkes-Barre at 675-9228 or e-mail Karen Brace-Hodle at [email protected].
