Well, the big day is here, but in Corvallis, we’ve been gearing up for weeks. On Wednesday, members of the MUPC dished up free orange and black floats for students and staff passing through the Memorial Union Commons, and gave away t-shirts to the first lucky few who showed up.

The Corvallis Boys & Girls Club held a Civil War sale last week. Children sold pillows and Santa’s stuffed with a chocolate bar and they are making everything from scratch (except the chocolate bars). They made both OSU and U of O colors of these items and they were sold in the front lobby of the club.

The kids sold $134.15 worth of goods, with a majority spent on Beaver gear. They made around 150 pillows total.
