THON Announces Canning Workshop Times and Bus Services

As the first canning weekend of the year approaches, all of those looking to make the trip must first attend a canning workshop. The workshops will include a video on proper canning procedures as well as signing an online consent form. You will need your student ID.

The workshops are scheduled at the following times:

Tuesday, Sept. 25: 101 Chambers from 7:30 p.m.-12 a.m.; Alumni Hall from 4:30 p.m.-12 a.m.
Wednesday, Sept. 26: 102 Forum from 6 p.m.-12 a.m.; Alumni Hall from 4 p.m.-12 a.m.
Thursday, Sept. 27: 101 Chambers from 7:30 p.m.-12 a.m

THON introduced the canning workshops last winter prior to canning weekend #3. Once you have attended a workshop, you will be able to participate in all three canning weekends.

Also, THON will be providing free transportation via Megabus to Philadelphia, New York, and Harrisburg during each of this year’s three Canning Weekends. These buses have been funded in part by the Courtney O’Bryan Memorial Fund.

Space is limited and tickets are distributed on a first come first serve basis. While tickets are no longer available for this weekend’s trip, make sure to reserve a ticket for canning weekend #2 on October 19-21.

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.
