Alumnus's roots provide foundation for new downtown Greenly Center
A Bloomsburg native and his wife, members of Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania's Class of 1972, are giving back to the local area with a $1 million gift to the BU Foundation. The donation from Duane R. and Susan Basar Greenly, Mechanicsburg, will establish The Greenly Center on the site of the former Cole's Hardware in downtown Bloomsburg.
"I loved growing up here, Sue and I met on campus and we were launched from here. We have moved around so much that Bloomsburg became my anchor," — Duane R. Greenly '72
