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!
SEAC made our annual trip to Wayne Campus this year for our meeting and got treated to the fall colors courtesy of a campus tour with Stephanie Baker. Several members of SEAC commented on the amazing landscaping and we learned that Wayne College staff members were responsible for the colorful mums that decorated the walkways around the campus.
Complements to: Shon Enos and Bill Wade for ordering the mums and to the planting team: Dan Deckler, Barb Caillet, Pam Duncan, Sharon Ostroski, Colleen Teague, Carolyn Freelon, Vern Virgilli, Jon Montavon, and Kathy Batchelder.
The meeting covered an overview of the Leave Bank Project, Operation Evergreen, and a hands-on demonstration of some Zippy Origami! http://uakron.edu/u/zippyigami
