Annual Rose Cologne Volunteer Dinner

The Centre County Council for Human Services, you are cordially invited to the 48th annual Rose Cologne Volunteer Dinner on Monday, April 27, 2020 at the Penn Stater Hotel and Conference Center. The doors will open at 5:45 PM with a cash bar, and the dinner will begin at 6:30 PM. Named in honor of Dr. Rose Cologne, a mentor and role model for many in the human services field, the dinner pays tribute to those volunteers who work to further the mission of CCCHS member agencies and the community at large.

Please enter through the President’s Hall Entrance, along Innovation Blvd. Free valet parking will be available and we encourage you to enjoy its convenience.

Each member agency is invited to nominate one volunteer to be honored at the annual Rose Cologne Volunteer dinner. The volunteer will also be recognized in the Centre Daily Times and on television via a re-broadcast of the dinner on C-NET. (Please note that your 2020 membership dues must be paid in full. Contact Calvin Miller if you are unsure of your organization’s status.)
