A Veterans Day Celebration Dinner, from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday in CC Commons, allowed the campus community to recognize servicemen and women in the Penn College family. The evening’s “all-American menu” featured chicken wings and crab legs, attendees were afforded the opportunity to show their appreciation, and those with military ID were eligible for giveaways.
