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!"    Photo

Animal Adoption
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 pattid10@yahoo.com.

After claiming the Region 19 title last weekend, the Men's Baseball Team moves on to the Northeast District Tournament, to be hosted by Mercer this weekend, May 9-11.  The winner of the tournament heads for the NJCAA Division II World Series later this month.

Play begins this Friday, May 9, when the Vikings face Rockland (NY) at 3 p.m. on the Mercer fields.  The other two teams, Alfred State (NY) and Massasoit (MA), will play at 3 p.m. at Mercer County Park.  The winners of Friday's games face each other Saturday at 9:30 a.m. at the Mercer fields.  The losers will play at 9:30 a.m. at Mercer County Park.  Check local papers for schedule updates and scores.

In the regional tournament, the Vikings had a great day on May 2 when they beat Brookdale 8-3, a team they had lost to in all three of their regular season contests.  Mercer then beat Lackawanna 10-4.  The second day of the regionals was just as good, as the Vikings defeated Del Tech 8-6 to take the double-elimination tournament 3-0.
