Food, games, conversation and sunshine were in abundant supply in and around tents by the Penn College tennis courts, and bingo and Quizzo were available inside the Field House for those seeking a shady place to try their luck and/or flex their memory muscles. Five bins of nonperishable food items were collected, increasing donors' odds of winning raffle prizes – and boosting the inventory for The Cupboard food pantry.
