UA Staff members teamed up with the students participating in Make a Difference Day to help make ornaments for Operation Evergreen – a project to provide a little Christmas cheer to troops stationed overseas.
And on hand was everyone’s favorite marsupial – Zippy!
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.
