We had a beautiful day for our trip to Penn State.  Great roads and you can't forget Penn State's famous ice cream which some of us took home with us.  Ron and Don, new member, both alumni takes us for a tour of campus.  Campus is immense.  We saw the obelisk which is a 34 foot tall monument, one of oldest ones on campus.  It has a stone from each county in Pa.  For legend behind obelisk you will have to ask Ron.  Ron & Don discovered some of the old ironic places of Penn State have closed, Rathskeller, Spats and "The Diner".  They couldn't believe "The Diner had been closed.  The Diner was known for famous grilled stickies.  The Diner is closed but grilled stickies are still made at bakery in Boalsburg, Pa.
Thanks Ron & Pat for a wonderful day

This was our third year participating in the Butler Memorial Day Parade.  Once again, we had a wonderful time!  Joe and Linda do a wonderful job of organizing everything!  We are always so surprised by the number of people, both young and old, who attend this hometown event!  Having grown up in Butler, this is awesome to see!  After the parade, we were excited to follow Chip McCandless on a cruise on some pretty windy Miata roads, on our way back to Baglier Mazda!  Kudos to the Baggier dealership for another delicious lunch, provided by Fairground Market!  We look forward to next year!  Brian and Sheila Bell

Cruises / Penn State Creamery Cruise
« Last post by Ron Hoffman on May 30, 2018, 02:39:48 PM »

Please join Pat and I for a “relaxing” cruise to Happy Valley and the Penn State Creamery (best ice cream ever made!!).  We will leave from Blairsville and travel US RT 22 through the Laurel Highlands; over Cresson Mountain to Duncansville where we will stop midway for a leisurely lunch (no deadlines!!) at Marzoni’s Brick Oven & Brewing Co. (  After lunch we will then head out on US RT 22 to State College using the “back entrance” to Penn State.   The drive should take around an hour and a half so hopefully everyone will be ready for ICE CREAM.  After “filling up” once again at the Creamery, we can go on a walking tour of Campus and College Avenue if anyone would care to do so.  We can also stop at the Trader Joe’s and/or Wegman’s (voted by me, best grocery store in the world!!) in State College if anyone wants.  We can do whatever you want for as long as you want.  I’m never in a hurry to leave Penn State!! 

Date & Time: Saturday, June 9th @10am

Meeting Place:  McDonald’s, 10 Resort Plaza Dr., Blairsville, PA (to the right of the Walmart on US RT 22) in their BACK PARKING LOT.  There is a Sheetz right across US RT 22 you can gas up at if need be. 

RSVP: By June 7th to me, Ron Hoffman, either by email at or call me at 724-392-7932.

I am rating this cruise as Leisure to Sporty.

These cruises are great if for no other reason than you find yourself on good twisty roads you have never been on before!
Ron & Pat led us to Titusville via Franklin via a great way to Franklin I wouldn't have taken in a million years.
Even better was the cruise back to Franklin through a park - great roads, excellent food and the coup de grace, ice cream!
