- Letter from the Director



One is never too old to experience new things, I discovered this

Next Wednesday, September 26th, Robert Kasdin will be visiting
Lamont, and will join us for the official unveiling of the
magnificent and highly coveted "Recycle Dude" trophy Lamont earned
for our First Place Per Capita Recycling Rate standing among 250
university campuses nationwide during the 10 week Recyclemania
competition last Spring. A brief ceremony will be held in the Monell
Lobby between 3:00 and 3:30 pm, complete with coffee, soft drinks and
cookies. The great work on this project by both Mary Reagan and the
Campus Life Committee and all of the folks in Pat O'Reilly's
Facilities department will be recognized and applauded. All are
welcome and encouraged to attend.

In the tradition of providing a more informal and festive celebration
to properly thank all of you for your participation in Recyclemania,
our Facilities Department will be providing the refreshments at TG
next Friday - September 28th. I hope to see you all there.

Have a great weekend,

- Mike
