What was to be a celebration of the year, and a planning meeting for future alumni events in Central Ohio, turned into a 1980s TRON-watching ham-fest, as only 4 Lobsters (and one spouse) came together in mid-December.
Unfortunately, due to poor attendance and false RSVP numbers, this event may be canceled in future years.
For the second year in a row, the ACRN Alumni Society challenged alumni from all across the globe to give a toy to Toys for Tots or their local toy charity to make the holidays a little brighter. In honor of the individual gift, the society would match each recorded toy gift, if recorded by Dec 15, 2010.
Thanks to Lobster generosity, 36 toys were donated to Toys for Tots. While we didn’t beat last year’s record (40 toys), we came close.
Thanks to everyone for another great year, and helping the Society meet university goals of philanthropy as part of the OU Alumni Association.
