September 15, 2019: This was a good year for summer parties in Central PA. We held 3 events in 2 cities, and helped other Yale Clubs from as far away as Delhi (India), Moscow (Russia), Tokyo (Japan), and Shanghai (China) hold over thirty more Camp Yale events. For more about Camp Yale Emeritus see campyale.net, its Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/CampYaleEmeritus/ and its Instagram page at https://www.instagram.com/campyale/. Here are the Central Pennsylvania parties.
On June 21, Club Co-President (and Prof. Emeritus) Charles Dumas ’79 JD staged a First Reading (with music and song) in State College of a new musical, Blues is the Root, The Willie Dixon Story. Charles wrote the play and directed the reading. Afterwards he held a talk-back.
On July 24, a second event, this time geared to families, was hosted in State College by Jason Acimovic (TC’99) and Cathy Braasch (TD’99).
They held a picnic and BBQ in their back yard. The event drew almost 30 folks (around 20 adults and 7 kids)!
On September 6, Don Mann ’94 and Yale Club Co-President Trex Proffitt ’89 organized an evening at the John Wright Restaurant in Wrightsville, PA, between York and Lancaster.
This was the fourth straight year for this event! About 10 folks came, including Nick Moehlmann ’60 who brought a hot air balloon for a twilight “glow”.
