Canning Weekend Canceled Among Weather Concerns

THON tweeted out that they have canceled Canning Weekend #3 “due to weather forecast of icing that is detrimental to volunteer safety for travel and canning.”

Earlier this afternoon, THON tweeted that due to an incoming storm front, they were reconsidering the weekend’s fundraising, urging students not to head-out yet. Rumors of imminent termination bounced about the campus, and as most students surely thought to themselves as they emerged from their evening classes into a snow-covered State College, canning was done for.

Do you think THON made the right decision? Or is this just another step towards the end of canning as we know it?

Update 7:20 p.m. – Here’s the press release from THON.

About the Author

Ryan Kristobak

Hailing from Lebanon, PA, I am a senior majoring in print journalism. Things I enjoy include lovesacs, denim, mullets, Fight Milk, Jonny Moseley, and "hang in there" kitten posters. Things that bother me include "fun" sized candy bars (not fun), fish, shoobies, wet door knobs, baby leashes, and Jake Lloyd.

Jim’s Army & Navy: The Greatest Store Ever

For those of you who have ventured onto the west side of Beaver Avenue, there is a good chance you have passed by Jim’s Army & Navy. If you are one of those people, your first thought when passing by Jim’s was most likely, “What the hell is going on in this store?” When a store’s window display boasts handcuffs (they even come in pink), switchblades, throwing stars, machetes, other swords, and ammunition, you really have no choice but to be utterly confounded. Little did I know that I was about to walk into the greatest store ever.
