Registration will begin at 12:45 p.m. on the Yager Hall patio. Representatives of the Campus Environment and Grounds Committee will be on hand to provide tools, direct volunteers to their work site, and match them with a team leader.

Projects planned for Friday include clean-up around Binder Physical Education Center and Wright Stadium, clean-up around Smith Hall, clean-up of campus memorial sites, lawn repair in front of Golisano Hall, weeding on the Bresee Hall patio and the French Memorial, Blue Key tour clean-up, brushing and painting railings, Table Rock clean-up and "dandelion patrol."

"More volunteer participation means more projects completed, and more completed projects result in a more beautiful campus in the spring!" wrote Committee Chair and Vice President for College Advancement Jim Broschart. "Please consider taking the time to help. You'll have fun!"

Committee memers include Broschart, Executive Assistant to the Vice President for Student Affairs Tammy Babcock, Facilities and Environmental and Health Safety Manager Gary Ballard, Senior Director of Donor and Alumni Relations Alicia Fish, Director of Campus Safety Tom Kelly, Director of the Pine Lake Institute for Environmental & Sustainability Studies Brian Hagenbuch, Aramark Facilities Services Manager Joe Mack, Associate Director of Admissions Manny Pelligra, Director of Marketing & Communications Susan Salton, and Executive Assistant to the Vice President for Institutional Advancement Daphne Ward.
