In search of volunteers
The local Volunteer Action Centre sends this latest list of its needs:
Kids on the Block puppeteer -- we are looking for creative and artistic
people to be involved in a puppet presentation on a variety of
disability topics. You will be given training in puppetry skills, script
memorization, and disability information. The program runs from September
to June; approximately three hours a week is required. This is an
excellent opportunity to work in the school environment. Listing 077-110.
The Volunteer Action Centre can be reached at 742-8610, and has plenty
of other volunteer opportunities to match people's schedules, talents
Telecruiters -- this is not soliciting. You will be contacting previous
blood donors to remind them of upcoming clinics and/or schedule
appointments for the permanent clinic. This will take approximately
two hours a month, can be done from your own home and is totally
compatible with your schedule. Listing 074-777.

"Computer equipment should be shut down in an orderly fashion, particularly
Unix systems," the plant operations department advises.

for the annual library staff picnic.
- Higher education today marks the 100th anniversary of a landmark:
the first Doctor of Science degree awarded to a woman. It was Caroline
Willard Baldwin who received the degree, from
