*Helping to Get the Emeriti Park Ready for the On the Green Weekend*


We have just two Wednesdays left (this week and next) to spruce up the 
Emeriti Park as much as possible before our Emeriti Reception at 
Latitude 39, 10-12 a.m., on Saturday, May 31. So come out this Wednesday 
and/or next if you can. If we have a big crowd, you might be wise to 
bring your own clippers, hoe, digger, or whatever. If you have none, 
come anyway. The groundskeepers bring some tools  for our use. No one 
will pester you about coming more than these two Wednesdays. There are 
plenty of twigs to pick up, flowers to weed or deadhead, gone-wild 
shoots to trim, etc. The last time I was there, I  gave a "haircut" to 
the tall grass alongside the stairs that connected one walkway with 
another. Evidently the power mowers can't get those bad boys when steps 
are involved. Things like that make the Park look a lot better.  Your 
own creativity, or anyone you ask, will keep you busy for the hour or so 
  we spend there. If you are new to this, just ask anyone what to do next.

What about weather? If it looks worrisome to you, call Park chair Dick 
Dean (593-8487), and he will have left a message on his phone to tell 
you of any change of plans. Ordinary work time is 9-10 a.m., but Susan 
Calhoun, university landscaper, has said that she would like to start 
earlier this week and next. So come at 8:30 if you like.  We gather 
along the Oxbow Trail (west side of the Park, near the new fieldhouse). 
Everyone will be glad to see you.
