Alumni Groups Add Local Touch to Homecoming Parade

Article related photo.Colonel Sanders led the group from Kentucky. Maine and New Hampshire Chapters marched with lobsters. There were cheeseheads from Wisconsin and “beach babes” from Florida. It was the 2010 Homecoming Parade featuring 30 Penn State alumni groups.

Groups from across the country returned to Happy Valley to march in the Homecoming Parade on a gorgeous evening. The alumni groups sported some pretty wacky costumes and props representing their area and their Penn State pride—and they threw candy to the eager children lining the parade route.

Five members of the Alumni Council, the Alumni Association’s governing body, selected two in-state and two out-of-state award recipients.

In-state category, the Berks County Chapter took home the $500 top prize and the Penn State Schuylkill Alumni Society received $250 to use on group programs. The Daytona-Palm Coast Chapter was awarded the $500 top prize in the out-of-state category and the Vermont Chapter won $250.
