Cafeteria Meal Service July 7-15
Please remember that the cool, air conditioned (!) cafeteria will be
open for meal service July 7-15. In addition, cold beverages or coffee
are available all day. The meal hours are:

Breakfast 7:30-8:30
Lunch 12:30-1:30
Dinner 6:30-7:30

Please see for more info

All breakfast is continental $4.00 a person
All lunches are deli, salad bar and pizza. $5.00 a person
Dinners:(all include salad bar) $9.00 a person

Please note that the staff will not be serving dinner on the 12th or
the 13th. And Sunday the 15th is breakfast and lunch only.

The cafeteria is also open until 10 pm each evening to give you a place
to get out of the heat and humidity.

Wanted: Movers and Shakers
No, we're not looking for politicians and social climbers, but people
who want to reach new spiritual heights through movement during chapel

Anyone with any type or level of dance training or experience is
welcomed--along with anyone who has NO PREVIOUS TRAINING at all! Jesus'
example encourages us to meet people at their level, and we will work
with the gifts and skills that you bring. If you can wave your hands in
the air (and wave them like you just don't care), that's great!
Percussionists and other musicians are also sought.

Currently, we need people who want to present sacred movement during
the Fall Convocation, Wednesday, September 12th. For those living in and
around Boston, rehearsals will occur over the summer, so please respond
by July 15th.

New and returning students: if you will arrive on campus by September
7th, there still will be a place for you. Come and join us!

If you're interested or have questions, please contact Regina Boyd at
or call 571-723-2652.

Looking for baby equipment to borrow
I have an au pair daughter from Holland arriving July 28th for 3 weeks
with three children, 18 months, 2 and half and 5. I am in need of two
car booster seats, one car seat for 18 month old, a high chair and a
crib. If you have any of the above that you could loan me for a few
weeks could you please let me know. I tried to rent this all and it
will cost a fortune. I leave for Zambia on July 9th, but you can email
me and I will pick up my emails at least once a week. Many thanks.

Thank You from Nancy Stuart
I want to thank the ANTS community for those who came to my Mom's
Memorial service and for the flowers, beautiful notes and cards,
prayers, care and support given to me. To have your workplace be a big
part of your personal comfort and support system is truly a blessing.
Words cannot express how much it means to me.
Thank you, all.

Nancy Stuart

Collecting Musical instruments for Zambian orphans
I leave for Zambia on July 11th, leading a delegation of 20 with
another member of the Board of DIrectors of the NGO Communities without
Borders . We will be working in community schools with AIDS orphans and
hope to bring as many musical instruments as we can with us,
particularly recorders and small instruments. If you have anything you
can donate could you please leave with Jennifer Shaw. We will also be
building a health clinic in Simukanka, a rural community in Zambia, to
which some members of the ANTS staff and faculty have contributed. I
am deeply grateful for your help in this project. Brita Gill-Austern
