EMU alumni invited to help beautify campus June 3
YPSILANTI - Eastern Michigan University Graduates of the Last Decade (GOLD) are invited to participate in a campus beautification day Saturday, June 3, 9 a.m.-1 p.m., at EMU’s McKenny Union, 850 W. Cross Street, Ypsilanti.
Alumni will participate in gardening and weeding flowerbeds, distributing mulch and dirt and planting flowers. In case of inclement weather, indoor projects are planned. Volunteers should wear work clothes and are asked to bring work gloves and small garden tools.
There will be a complimentary continental breakfast from 9-9:30 a.m.
The event is free and friends are welcome. R.S.V.P.s are encouraged for project planning. To register, contact the office for alumni relations at 734.487.0250 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The GOLD program is open to all EMU graduates of the past ten years and serves the alumni association by catering to the needs of its younger constituents. Like the alumni association, there are no dues for GOLD membership. Events are designed to further the program’s mission of fostering strong bonds between young alumni and EMU through social, networking, educational and volunteer opportunities.
“Helping beautify campus is a great way to become involved in a GOLD event, while meeting new friends and making an investment in EMU,” said Ken Ruppel, assistant director of constituent relations.
For more information about GOLD or to suggest ideas, contact Ruppel at 734.487.0250 or visit www.emich.edu/alumni/gold.
