Penn College threw open the brief window between finals and commencement and welcomed its employees to a semester-ending Centennial Picnic on the Athletic Field on Friday. Surrounded by goodwill and sunshine, co-workers and retirees enjoyed food from Acme Barbecue (prepared by owner/culinary alumnus George E. Logue III) and a healthy spirit of cooperation in games that tested skill, coordination, stamina and brain power.
