The club will hold a game watch this fall, check the website http://shelbyco.alumni.osu.edu/ for date and details.
Eleven graduates of high schools in Sidney and Shelby County were honored at the meeting with a Freshman Send-off sponsored by the club. Each will be freshman at The Ohio State University this fall. They made Buckeye necklaces, played trivia and introduced themselves to the club announcing planned majors and where they will be living on campus. A tailgate meal was provided for the future Buckeyes and their families. It was a great opportunity for them to share information with each other and to hear stories from alumni. The evening concluded with the tradition singing of “Carmen Ohio”.
