An ever-charitable Penn Collegecontingent took part in a number of fundraising events on behalf of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. The Horticulture Club, based in the School of Natural Resources Management, raised $200 by selling fresh floral arrangements in pink and white. This was the sixth year for the sale, and adviser Carl J. Bower Jr. said total proceeds now top $2,000 in club donations to the American Cancer Society. This year's contribution went toward the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk, held Oct. 29 in Montoursville's Indian Park. Six college employees (Becky J. Shaner, Lenore G. Penfield, Valerie L. Fessler, Jennifer A. Cline, Emily B. Miller and Jessica M. McCoy) were among the members of Shaner's Pink Berets team, whichcollected contributions and also received more than $50 from the Athletics department and the Healthy Wildcats. Those groups organized "Pink Out" activities, including a 50-50 raffle, in support of the same cause.
