Thanks to Christie Martin ('99) for offering up her home for this year's mid-summer BBQ and student farewell. The event occurs on the afternoon on Aug. 8, when we'll welcome new local Orange students into the Syracuse family.
This event is being coordinated by Mary Dickinson Jensen. Questions? Contact Mary at email@example.com.
Do You BLEED Orange IV slated for Sep. 12
Our fall community service project, tied to our first game watch of the season, takes place at a new venue...
Date: Sat., Sep. 12: Football game watch and Do You BLEED Orange blood drive Football: from 11am on Blood drive: 11:30am - 5pm Where: The Civic Taproom, 621 SW 19th Av., Portland
Since Macadam's closed earlier this year, we've been without a gamewatch venue. While the club figures out permanent plans, alum Spencer Raymond ('10) is opening the doors of his establishment early for us on Sep. 12, at 11am. Come catch the second half of the SU-Wake Forest football game that morning, then roll up your sleeve to donate a unit of blood.
This fourth-annual blood drive is a collaboration among the Stumptown Orange, The Civic Taproom, the American Red Cross and more than a dozen other local, football-crazed alumni clubs. Come join in the fun, and do some good for the community's blood supply in the process.
To sign up for a blood donation or to volunteer to help staff the sign-in table or the canteen inside the Bloodmobile, please contact Ken Kane at 503.246.6462 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The club helps out Admissions
Thanks to a half-dozen alums who helped support SU's Office of Admissions on April 6. Recruiter Lisa Raney (left) was in town to help persuade some admitted high school seniors to choose Syracuse as their college. The club members shared their thoughts and, in one case, her restaurant in the pursuit of the Class of 2019. See details here.
National Orange Day celebrated with spuds
Eight Stumptowners joined other volunteers at the Oregon Food Bank on March 28 to do some good and mark SU's 145th birthday at the same time. Above (left to right) Jim & Ronnie Rudolph, Molly Gearn and Nelson Atkin all 'tatered down. Check out a photo summary of the day here.
Orange Central/Homecoming/Reunion Weekend set
When our own George Gearn ('54) was a student on Piety Hill, one of his jobs was to fire the Archbold Stadium cannon whenever the Orange scored a touchdown.
Last fall, when George was back for his60th reunion, he found his old ordnance. What memories await you when you return to campus? Find out during Orange Central 2015 from Oct. 22 - 25. You can learn more about Homecoming activities by going to http://orangecentral.syr.edu/.
