An early November day in the Rose Street Commons courtyard provided a fitting locale for a recent Fall Festival with Penn College Benefiting THON, a student organization linked to the annual February dance marathon at Penn State. Designed to raise awareness and funds for the fight against pediatric cancer, the event included three hours’ worth of games, crafts and treats.
