END OF YEAR SALE-A HUGE SUCCESS Since 1999, the Staff Association has held an end of year sale of items donated, discarded by students when they move out of their dorms for the summer. Not only does the sale help the environment by recycling useful house wares, office supplies and clothing, it funds half of the Newberry Award, subsidizes Staff Association activities and makes a lot of bargain-hunters very happy! This year’s sale netted $1250, plus an additional $200 from text book sales. Most of the $1250 was from the sale of 25 cent items, so if you do the math, you will realize the number of items sold and the enormity of this accomplishment. Potential sale merchandise is removed from dorm rooms, bagged and transported to Betts-ycoed by Housekeeping staff. Then volunteers sift through bags; fold clothing; sort it by color and stack it on tables. Staff volunteers also donated their lunch hours and time before and after work to “mind the store.” Thank you to all our customers and special thanks to all who helped make this such a success, especially Ann Ogle, Sally Allison, Dan McLaughlin, Rob Williams, Kim Cassidy. ********************************************** NEW FLAG FLYING Last year, “Sky Warrior” Bill McKenna (Facilities) designed a new flag called “The Owl.” This year, to celebrate 25 consecutive years of flying flags atop College buildings, Bill will be displaying another new flag, called “The Coat of Arms” which depicts a familiar owl symbol. Look for Sky Warrior and the flags at the opening of the new academic year, from August 29 to September 2 and again for Inauguration weekend (October 3 – 6). ********************************************** DO YOU REMEMBER FRANK McALEER? Frank J. McAleer worked at Bryn Mawr College for 45 years in Facilities as a Master Plumber. This year Frank was the Grand Marshal at the 58 th Annual Garrett HillRosemont 4th of July Parade. Dawn Bruton (Housekeeping) was on the parade committee and supplied this news and a parade program. The program noted Frank’s years at Bryn Mawr and some other details about his life that you may not know: Frank has been a lifelong resident of the Garrett Hill neighborhood. Frank has also been a lifetime member of the Garrett Hill Golf Club. He was married on the 4 th of July in 1957 to Marcy and they raised four children. Frank had a twin brother, Jim, who sadly passed away last October. Frank enlisted in the Navy and served with his brother Jim during WWII on a tanker in the Pacific. Frank played on Radnor High School’s football team and he and many of his teammates meet at the annual Radnor Has Beens Dinner on the evening before the Lower Merion game and “are still raising a little ruckus each year.” P.S.--You might also see Frank at the annual BMC Holiday Party at Wyndham.
