The SEAC game night at with the Akron Rubber Ducks took place on Saturday, June 25th. What was actually going to be a single game, 7:05 p.m. start, was later announced as a double header. Gates opened at 5 p.m. with the first game beginning at 5:30 p.m. and the second game started 30 minutes after the first game ended. Each game consisted of seven innings.
The SEAC reserved seats were in Section 11 between home plate and first base. Weather conditions were sunny and 90 degrees. Many people moved from the section to cool down and get out of the direct sun.
68 staff members enjoyed an evening at the ballpark courtesy of SEAC – big thanks to Peggy for coordinating the event!
The galloping gourmet bakers of SEAC made another great contribution to the Ronald McDonald House. Here’s the Thank You from RMH:
Dear Laura, Theresa & Bonnie-
We hope you had a great time volunteering at the Ronald McDonald House of Akron. Thank you so much for baking treats for our families. It is because of volunteers like you that the House can keep families together when they need each other most. Your time TRULY makes a difference! We hope you will remain involved and continue to support the Ronald McDonald House of Akron.
We look forward to seeing you again!
Stephanie Zelasko and the entire RMH of Akron team
The “Iron Bakers” of SEAC descended on the Ronald McDonald House and baked up a storm in April. Special thanks to Laura and Katy for their enthusiastic volunteerism – and to Peggy and Bonnie for helping to organize the event.
Members of SEAC and CPAC worked together to create holiday ornaments for Operation Evergreen – a project established by the Ohio Christmas Tree Association to send trees and ornaments to military personnel serving overseas. Here are a few examples of the creativity:
SEAC will also be joining UA Students for Make a Difference Day as part of their volunteer projects.
Officers from SEAC and CPAC (the Contract Professional Advisory Committee) met with the new UA President for lunch recently. Dr. Scott Scarborough discussed plans for the university and ongoing changes as he settles into his new role. After lunch, the officers were joined by the committee members for photos.
On October 25th, SEAC joined with the students of Make A Difference Day to create ornaments for Operation Evergreen. Over the span of a few hours, dozens and dozens of ornaments were made using kits and embellished with ribbon, foam shapes, and glitter.
Thanks to Student Life for their contribution to Operation Evergreen!
SEAC hosted two crafting tables in the Student Union so that student volunteers could help create original ornaments with every crafting supply imaginable. The glitter glue was – by far – the most popular item. Check out their handiwork below:
