The College Fair
The Mercer County Professional Counselor's Association held its regional
College Fair at MCCC on April 29. Joan Guggenheim says: "I would like
to thank the many MCCC employees who helped spread the word in the community
about the College Fair. The event was a great success. We had
220 colleges represented from across the country, and more than eighteen
hundred high school students and parents attending. After a brief rain
shower, it turned into a fantastic evening. We had so many comments
about how beautiful our campus looked. I would especially like to thank
the maintenance, security and food services departments. Mercer really
put its best foot forward, and people noticed!"
Students, faculty and staff enjoyed Spring Day
activities on May 1, when the sunshine broke out just in time. Volunteers
cooked and served great food. For photos
Damn Yankees Sing at the Stadium
Cast members from "Damn Yankees" sang the national anthem on opening day
for the Thunder at Waterfront Park on April 10, bringing fiction and
reality together. The performance was a great publicity boost for the
show, which ran at Kelsey Theatre in April.
Kathy Paluscio Showered with Gifts
The faculty, adjunct faculty and staff of Arts, Communications & Information
Technology surprised Kathy Paluscio with a bridal shower on May 6, complete
with lots of great food and a "wishing well." Her wedding will be held
on May 31. See
Patti Dunleavy in the Accounting office is a volunteer with an animal
shelter in South Jersey. She can tell you about adorable cats and
dogs who need good homes. Right now she is looking for a home for Brandi,
"an eight-year-old, beautiful declawed cat (calico). Brandi is cuddly
and loves people. She is negative for all cat diseases and is fixed.
Her family could not keep her because their newborn was allergic to cats.
Brandi would do best in a quiet household with no young children and no other
animals." Please call Patti at ext. 3285 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
