It’s more than 1,200 miles from Williamsport to New Orleans, but that didn’t discourage Penn College students from indulging in a little seasonal celebration of their own. The Wildcat Events Board hosted a Mardi Gras Bash in Penn’s Inn on Thursday night, serving up enough glowing goodwill to take the chill out of winter. “There was great music and food,” said Michael J. Hersh, assistant director of student activities for programming and operations, “and everyone had a pretty good time.”
