Gentle Friday Presentation and End of Voting in MDNGP

The Clarke would like to announce two important dates coming up early next week.

First, on Monday April 14, the Clarke, in association with the CMU Alumni Association will be offering a retrospective on the history of Gentle Friday. Going back to the 1960s, this unique CMU tradition was invented to help relieve tension on campus. Today, it is a reminder of how we all benefit from a culture built on the concepts of civility, good will, and a free ice cream cone. The presentation begins at 7:00 pm in the Park Library auditorium with a reception, co-sponsored by the Alumni Association, to follow in the Clarke.

Second, Tuesday, April 15 is the last day to vote in the Michigan Digital Newspaper Grant Program. Your votes will determine which one of five cities - Muskegon, Lansing, Grand Rapids, Cheboygan, or Marquette - will have their newspaper digitized and uploaded into the Michigan Digital Newspaper Portal.
