MCCC to provide a poster about ARTWORKS. Designed by Francis Paixao,
the poster was prominently displayed on stage during the broadcast.
It has been permanently placed in the entranceway at ARTWORKS.

Mark your calendar for the 2005 Heart Walk, set for Saturday, Sept.
17 at Mercer County Park.
Dr. Rose is a member of the American Heart Association's Heart Walk
committee this year, and Amy Iseneker is again serving as campus leader.
"We want to make this year's campaign bigger and better than ever,"
Amy said. You'll be seeing the college's theme "Take it to Heart"
on flyers and posters around the campus, urging you to participate.
There are many ways
you can help:
-- You can walk
that day, make a donation, or solicit donations.
-- You can help
inspire others by sharing a story about your own experiences. Have you
had heart problems, a heart attack, or heart surgery? Call Saveria Symons
at ext. 3736 if you would share your story for this E-Bulletin.
-- You can offer
a service to be auctioned. Some members of the faculty have already
offered services. John Kalinowski will donate two hours of personal
training; Amy Iseneker will give two hours of gardening assistance.
If you have an offer, call Amy at ext. 3372.
Mark your calendar! Plans are under way for the “Take it to Heart”

Spreads Horticulture Expertise
Marie Wszolek and Amy Iseneker took four horticulture students to the
residential facility, Project Freedom, in Hamilton on May 31 and June
2 to help the residents start a vegetable garden. Some of the vegetables
and herbs were planted in raised containers to help make gardening easier
for Project Freedom's residents, who have either a physical or mental
handicap. According to Iseneker, the garden has been successful, and
was even featured for two weeks on Barbara Bromley’s horticulture
spot on WZBN TV. Photos
College's Girl Tech 2005
Girls 10 to 14 honed their television production skills in Kristen Callahan's
"Girl Tech" course for Camp College. After a few days in the
classroom exploring various technology-based careers, the girls produced
their very own news show. They wrote the script, acted as anchors, weather
forecasters, camera operators and control room technicians. Women at
MCCC who work in technology lent their expertise, including Colleen
Courtney, Valarie Daniels, Tonia Harrison, and Sue Holman. Photos
