STEPPIN' OUT--The Adams Street Recreation Center Step Team performed at the Martin Luther King Jr. celebration at the Medical Center. The celebration began with an invocation by the Medical Center's chief chaplain Gloria Fish. Also participating were Strong Memorial Hospital retiree Bessie Dowdell, who offered a hymn; peace advocate Denise Young; and poet Robert Ricks. The event was co-chaired by two hospital employees: mistress of ceremonies Zola Brown and Julie Choate. Brown also is with the Service Employees International Union, Local 1199, which sponsored the event.

Thanks to all donors!

In October of 1998 the Finger Lakes Donor Recovery Network put donor cards in all University employee paychecks. The response was phenomenal. Over 400 people sent back their signed donor cards, making that the biggest response ever from one event. The network wants to thank everyone for their incredible generosity: "What a wonderful reflection you cast on our community."

Weather watchers dial 6111

To find out about emergency notifications of schedule changes due to weather or other unforeseen situations dial x5-6111, or 275-6111 from outside the University. The University never completely closes, although in cases of extreme weather conditions (such as on January 15) a "minimal staff plan" goes into effect where only essential personnel may be required to report. If you have questions about such a plan, contact your supervisor.
