Student Send-off: our eighth annual food-and-gab fest

Our Aug. 2 Send-off was an afternoon of fun and info swapping. Thanks to Rich Meneghello ('93) and his wife Kirsten for hosting. Thanks, also, to the 40  folks, including six new SU students (right) and their families, for attending.

Farewell friend, Bob Gates


It's with extreme sadness that we report the passing of our club treasurer, Bob Gates ('61). Bob was doing something he loves, fly fishing with friends in Canada, earlier this month when he took ill. He passed away in a Canadian hospital, surrounded by his wife Janice (above) and their two children. Bob was a stalwart Stumptowner -- in  fact, his involvement with Syracuse alums in Oregon predated our club. He was a member of the statewide alumni club back in the early 2000s,  before it disbanded.  He and Janice hosted a Student Send-off for that club, as well as one for we Stumptowners several years later. His sardonic wit and impish smile, not to mention his dedication to our club and university, will be missed. 

A celebration of Bob's life will take place on Sunday, Aug. 24 at noon at the Oswego Lake Country Club in Lake Oswego (map). Bob's family encourages any and all Stumptown Orange members to attend.

We learned of Bob's passing on July 17, the same day of our annual pub crawl. We took the opportunity to toast our friend as we moved from venue to venue that night...


A couple of multi-alumni club events for your consideration....

Join alums of other ACC and East Coast schools for the Portland Timbers soccer game on Sep. 7.

Tickets ($38) may still be available, if you click here

On Nov. 1, come cheer on the Orange at Macadam's Bar & Grill as they take on North Carolina State... then do some good at the same time by donating a unit of blood. It's our third annual Do You BLEED Orange? blood  drive, from 11:30 - 5pm.

This is the Stumptown Orange's fall service project, but we can't succeed without the help of Macadam's, the American Red Cross and other Portland alumni clubs. 

We invite our ACC brethren and all alumni clubs which call Macadam's home to join us in this effort!

Details on both of these multi-alumni club events can be found on our Events page


Congratulate our new CO-presidents!

Michael Cook ('82) and Mary Dickinson Jensen ('13) were elected our  club co-presidents at our annual meeting on June 11.

Small is beautiful


Bigger isn't always better. Threatening skies (which eventually cleared) kept turnout low for May 17's Vancouver art and history hike.

But the quartet who made the trek learns a lot about the city across the Columbia. Click here for details.
