Pike County Chapter plans for upcoming fall activities
The Pike County Alumni Chapter is gearing up for another successful year. The board members of that group met recently to plan for upcoming events this fall.
The chapter will continue to seek support from the community to continue its ongoing flag campaign. The purpose of the campaign is to display Troy University flags along U.S. 231 throughout football season to show Trojan spirit. Those interested in supporting this project can contact the Alumni Affairs Office at 334-670-3318.
The Pike County Chapter will also host the second annual Arts and Crafts Fair on Saturday, Sept. 13, on the grounds of the Alumni House. The arts and crafts booths will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Vendors interested in booth space should contact Jan Sullivan at email@example.com or the Alumni office at (334) 670-3318.
Butler County Chapter holds annual golf tournament

Approximately $4,000 was raised to provide scholarships to deserving students from Butler County. These scholarships will be awarded at the chapter’s annual meeting later this year.
Emerald Coast Chapter hosts annual spring meeting
The Emerald Coast Alumni Chapter hosted their annual spring meeting in April at the Elks Lodge on Okaloosa Island.
A record crowd was on hand to hear from Head Football Coach Larry Blakeney regarding the upcoming football season. Blakeney stressed the importance of fan support both when the team is at home at Movie Gallery Veterans Stadium and on the road.
Blakeney told members that the 2008 football schedule would pit the Trojans against the two teams that played for the Bowl Championship Series Championship – LSU and Ohio State. The schedule also includes a trip to Oklahoma State, as well as a competitive Sun Belt Conference schedule.
Members and friends of this chapter also recently teed it up at the annual golf tournament held at the Fort Walton Beach Municipal golf course recently. The tournament consisted of three-man teams with two teams to a hole. The event raised funds to provide scholarships for area students to attend Troy University.
