Paine College alumni are rallying support for their Alma Mater more now than ever.  For the love of Paine, the alumni of the Augusta Chapter will host a day of fundraising for the College on Friday, April 24th.  Alumni and friends are invited to visit the Alumni House located at 1208 Beman Street (West of the HEAL Complex) to drop off monetary donations in support of the Together, We Can Campaign for Paine.  Augusta Commissioner Bill Fennoy invited the City to lend support to his Alma Mater and stated that the well-being of Paine College lends to the health of the Augusta community.   Mayor Hardie Davis pitched in by declaring April 24, 2015 as Paine College Day.  Radio personalities Minnesota Fattz and Cher Best will broadcast live from the Alumni House courtyard from 11-1 p.m. followed by Kydd Joe of Power 107 from 1-3 p.m.

 

The Augusta Alumni Chapter extends an invitation to the community to visit the Alumni House between the hours of 11-6 p.m. to purchase a delicious fish or BBQ chicken dinner at a cost of $10.00 per plate.  Advanced purchases for the meal can be placed by contacting Mildred Kendrick (706)945.1362, Betty Tutt (706) 650-1004 or any member of the Augusta Alumni chapter.

 

Commissioner Fennoy said, "Paine College and her students are at the heart of everything we do in support of the institution.  We need all of our alumni and friends to come together in support of this institution that has served the community and its people for 133 years. I am appealing to the community to do more than purchase a ten dollar plate of food; I am asking the public to invest in Paine College by writing a check payable to the Together, We Can Campaign."

 

Also, Paine alums are gearing up for the annual Alumni Reunion weekend celebration that will occur May 8th-10th.  It is expected that Alumni will descend upon the campus to celebrate the accomplishments of the graduating class of 2015 and bear monetary gifts that will benefit the Together, We Can Campaign for Paine College.
