Robert and Marjorie Manning Fund
Bob and Marjorie Manning created this fund in 2005 to support a wide array of nonprofits. Long-time residents of Boalsburg, the Mannings enjoyed a full life here in Centre County. Bob retired as President of the Cannon Instrument Company, where his work focused on viscosity measurement, viscosity standards, and packed column distillation. He earned his bachelor’s degree and doctorate in chemical engineering from Penn State. Prior to her passing in 2012, Marge was a founding member of the Nittany Valley Symphony and the State College Municipal Band. She was a member of the State College Presbyterian Church, directing the children’s choirs and teaching Sunday School. Marge was a 1947 graduate of Penn State with a degree in Music Education. She and Bob married in December of 1947. This fund continues the dedication to our community that Marge and Bob demonstrated throughout their lives and supports two causes annually: Centre Regional Recreation Authority for the benefit of the State College Band and Ethel Beaver Children's Fund.
