 Happy Easter OYFA!  We hope you had a fun weekend from Progressive to the Cookout to VMAs!  With only a handful of events until the end of the year, we personally are asking all of you to start thinking about what you would like to see OYFA achieve going into the 30th anniversary.  There will be multiple opportunities to give us your ideas, so get hype for that!

Hello Oyfa!

It’s ya boi pinoboi and ya girl Dana! Start thinking about nicknames for your fellow OYFans to help us come up with superlatives for End of the Year Picnic! We’ll be sending out a google form for superlative suggestions on Facebook soon. The only requirement is that the person you submit a superlative for has to be a paid member of OYFA, but otherwise send all the crazy, funny, stupid, nicknames you can think of! 

Goodbye OYFA!
