Phoenix Friday means cold-weather deals

With temperatures taking a turn, it is a perfect time for a Phoenix Friday special at The Phoenix Bookstore which includes 20% off hats, mittens, scarves and gloves! Aviand’s has changes to its Phoenix Friday specials beginning Oct. 9. Those wearing Phoenix apparel will still receive a 10% discount, but locations are rotating. October 9 at Rosewood Café, October 16 at the Garden Café, October 23 at the MACH Cart, and October 30 at the Marketplace. Playing at CheapSeats this Friday is the new Marvel film, “Ant Man.” Show times are at 6:30 and 9:05 at the Christie Theatre. Nelly’s Echo comes to Commongrounds Coffeehouse on Friday at 8 p.m. The singer-songwriter from Nigeria, Africa blends soul, reggae and blues. On Friday the Green Bay volleyball team hosts Northern Kentucky at 7 p.m. at the Kress. On Saturday, women’s soccer hosts Cleveland State at 1 p.m. and men’s soccer hosts Belmont at 7 p.m. Both matches will be played at Santaga Stadium. Go Green Bay!

Semester’s end means charitable donations to local pantries

Dan Jacques from A’viands Food Service shares word that UW-Green Bay made the most out of the dining plan’s bulk sales drive in May. Through the staff assistance of A’viands and the University Union, students and their parents elected to donate $2,762 worth of food that is being made available to the hungry of Brown County. Five different charities — Campus Kitchen, Campus Pantry, Manna for Life, Paul’s Pantry and Freedom House — are benefiting from the year-end food plan contributions. Jacques and Tammy Swanson from A’viands say they “would like to personally thank everyone involved in collection, organizing and next week’s delivery…  This would not have been possible without Sarah Johanski, lead retail supervisor, who handled the ordering, organizing and sorting of all the items collected.”
