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.
