CLARKS SUMMIT — Penn State alumni will host the 30th annual Penn State Scranton Alumni Society/James D. Gallagher Golf Tournament Monday, June 18 at the Country Club of Scranton.

The tournament, played in a captain and crew format, will begin with lunch on the patio at noon, followed by a shotgun start at 1 p.m. Golf chairs are Dick Walsh, Scranton; Rick Pambianco, Archbald; and Kathy Casarin, Archbald. Tournament participants will be greeted by the Penn State Nittany Lion.
