Penn College colleagues ended the first Friday of summer hours with a third annual Employee and Retiree Picnic in and around the Field House. Lunch was catered by the alumni-owned Acme Barbecue; the afternoon also included indoor and outdoor games, raffles and catch-up socializing before the closer-than-you-think start of fall classes. Nonperishable food items were collected to support The Cupboard at Penn College, an initiative in support of students experiencing food insecurity.
