Semis, Parents, and Touchdowns

Hi Everyone,

Sorry for the brief hiatus, the job search grind has been real in the past few weeks but the events at Cannon haven’t been slowing down either!

Two weekends ago, we had our fall semis celebration at the Club and our social chairs, Elias and Keiko, absolutely knocked it out of the park with the party planning preparations!  The theme was a trip around the world.  Each room was decorated with a different country as the theme and Bill and the staff cooked up dishes to fit in with those themes.  It was a great success as we had a ton of members and even more guests maxing out the capacity of the House!

Here is a picture of the officers enjoying the festivities! (8 out of 10 pictured)

This past weekend, we celebrated with out Parents! Our President, Julia Haney, organized the weekend with the help of our Alcohol Chair, Jake Strain, and the Social chairs, Elias and Keiko.  It was a huuuuuggggeeee hit as we had over 120 parents come celebrate with us!  Bill and the staff backed up a great Semis with an even better Parents Weekend so we could not be more appreciative of all the help that he has provided over the course of these past few weekends.

The work isn’t over yet as Homecoming is just around the corner!  We will have activities in the Club all day long and will be open for our annual Foamcoming Party at night that should be loads of fun.  Sunday morning we will be open for brunch from 10 until 130 so stop by and fuel up before heading home.

Varsity Athletics Update

Once again the football team has continued their winning ways.  They smacked Columbia around two Saturdays ago and this week they absolutely trounced Lehigh as well.

Just to put our Cannon Football team members’ success into perspective for everyone out there keeping track… Cannon members on the team have combined for 12 passing touchdowns, 10 receiving touchdowns, and 13 Rushing touchdowns.  Only 1 out of the 26 touchdowns that has been scored by Princeton this year has not been contributed by a Cannon member which is pretty ridiculous.  The fellas look to keep the train rolling this weekend as they play Brown.

The field hockey team just knocked off the number 3 team in the country as well this weekend.  They traveled up to UCONN and beat them in their own stadium.  Junior Grace Baylis held it down in the goal and Senior Elise Wong led a strong defensive charge.  The team looks to keep it rolling as they head into the latter half of Ive League play.

Thanks for sticking with us and check back next week to see some pictures from the Homecoming festivities! We hope to see you there.
