Sign-in Table Map (PDF)
Date: Friday, April 15, 2011
Time: 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Sign-in Location: the Weidner Memorial Carillon
Organized by: Academic Staff and Classified Staff
Stop by the sign-in station at the Weidner Memorial Carillon where you can pick up garbage bags, rubber gloves, and maps detailing the quadrants that are in need of attention.
- The campus grounds crew is lending us their nifty litter pick-up tools, but there’s a limited supply! Everyone else will simply have to bend.
- If there’s an area of campus that you want to claim in the name of cleanliness, sign-in promptly so you can get your preferred spot!
- A friendly competition: Register for your team and we’ll report how much involvement was from students, faculty, academic staff, and classified staff. Check back here for results.
The planning committee extends a special thanks to the University Union and its Phoenix Club for providing soda or water and a small bag of popcorn for participants.
Despite the wind and colder temps, the Campus Clean-Up Day was a success! A total of 26 participants took in the fresh air and exercise during the mid-day hours:
- 12 Classified Staff (winner with the highest numbers….!!)
- 7 Students (7 members of Circle K Student Org)
- 6 Academic Staff
- 1 Retired Faculty member
Overall, it was a great change to ‘pitch in’. We would also would like to recognize the ‘special finds’ from a few of the participants…
- Todd Sanders found a TomTom
- Tina Tackmier and Lisa Tetzloff found an organ
It was too big to put into a trash bag
- Donna Van Straten was the lucky winner finding a $10 bill
Thanks to all. It was a great effort for our campus!
