2014 Lycoming Winter Magazine - page 28

Dear Friends,
Please join us for one of our “Meet the Trachtes”
events planned in various locations throughout the
country! Not only will you have the chance to spend
some time with Kent and Sharon Trachte in a relaxed
setting, but you’ll learn about the five areas of strategic
focus that will guide us as we work toward a greater
Lycoming. We also have scheduled online forums for
the first quarter of 2014 that will allow you to share the
ideas you have that will enhance this strategic vision. I
hope you’ll take the time to talk with our new president,
welcome him and his wife to the Lycoming community
and share your thoughts about how we can continue to
work together to advance your alma mater.
This year, we begin a new tradition of celebrating
class reunions during Alumni Weekend. Lycoming will
host reunions for classes that end in “4” and “9” the
weekend of May 16-18, 2014. Until Alumni Weekend
was implemented in 2011, Homecoming had been our
only opportunity to formally welcome alumni back
to campus. Therefore, it seemed natural to celebrate
reunions during that weekend. As Homecoming has
grown and evolved, the multitude of activities available
to all alumni has increased tremendously! Whereas
we are thrilled that this growth has created a greater
Homecoming experience in general, it also means that
there has been less time available for our office to help
to make a class reunion program as spectacular as we’d
like it to be.
Our goal is to create a more robust, enjoyable and
wonderful class reunion experience for you and your
classmates. We ask you to give us the chance to help
you celebrate your milestone by participating in your
class reunion during Alumni Weekend. Our intent, as
always, is to evaluate the alumni experience and to
identify ways we think we can improve our program-
ming for your benefit. Please continue to support your
alma mater by trying this new format as we strive to
better serve you and your classmates.

2013 Thomas B. Croyle ’70
Memorial Golf Outing
By Gary Spies ’72
A cold and windy, but dry day greeted 55 golfers for
the annual Thomas B. Croyle ’70 Memorial Golf Outing at
the White Deer Golf Course on Friday, Oct. 25, during this
year’s homecoming weekend.
Occasional sun helped to warm the golfers and lower
the scores. Congratulations to the winning foursome: Bill
Kieser ’98, Jamie Spencer ’01, Tim Smith ’99 and Royce
Eyer ’01. Second place went to: Roger Crebs ’87, Jeff Harris
’85 and Tim Brown ’84. A three-way tie for third place
was decided by matching scorecards: Wayne Kinley, Jeff
Bennett ’94 and brothers Bob and Rich Griesemer. Closest
to the pin prizes went to Kieser and Mike Bolsar while
Kieser also had
the longest drive.
All participants
received blue and
gold golf towels
embroidered with
the college’s new
athletics logo.
The Alumni
Executive Board
would like to
thank all those
who participated
this year and looks
forward to next
year’s outing.
