Let the Games – and Summer Hours – Begin!

For the fifth year, the campus family ended the first Friday of summer hours with an Employee/Retiree Picnic in and around the Field House. The 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m. gathering featured lunch from Mel’s Deli & Café in Montoursville, a variety of indoor and outdoor diversions, and the opportunity for leisurely conversation after another hectic academic year. Nonperishables were again collected to support The Cupboard, which assists Penn College students experiencing food insecurity.
