Warm holiday happenings take the chill off

A pair of campus holiday traditions dovetailed near dusk Wednesday: the fifth annual decorating of the Veterans Tree outside Madigan Library and the lighting of the oversized greeting cards on the mall. Chet Beaver, coordinator of veteran and military services, mustered a hardy troop of helpers to hang 399 stars fabricated in the School of Industrial, Computing & Engineering Technologies to represent Penn College’s veterans and active-duty servicemen and women. As a blustery day gave way to a briskly brutal evening, the card-lighting ceremony took place at the Breuder Advanced Technology & Health Sciences Center. In the office/department category, Dining Services placed first, Financial Aid was second and General Services finished in third place. Among student organizations, Cru topped the vote-getters, Women in Construction was second and the Veterans Club placed third.
