Nicky Kirby Arrangements
------------------------
Dear Community Members,

Many of you have asked about the funeral arrangements for Nicky. Nicki's wake will be on Tuesday from 4-8 pm at the Benson Funeral Home in St. Cloud MN and the funeral will be at 11 am on Wednesday at the Peace UCC in St. Cloud where she served as an interim this past summer. Apparently the funeral home is planning to put a pictorial history of Nicki's life up on their website. Their web site is: http://www.bensonfuneralhome.com/obituaries.php


Benson Funeral Home
1111 25th Avenue South
St. Cloud, MN 56301
phone: 320-252-3132

If you wish to send a card to the family you can do so at the following address:

Joe and Denise Kirby
7403 98th St. South
Cottage Grove, MN 55016

Incidentally, Nicky graduated in 2007--I had the year wrong. I know we will all miss her. We are planning a service for her on campus sometime this week. When a date is set I will follow up with details (and if you would like to help plan this please let me know)

Take good care,

Nancy Nienhuis
Dean of Students

The Worship and the Arts Program at Andover Newton is sorry to announce that the Parables Symposium that was to take place on October 20th has been cancelled due to low enrollment, and will be rescheduled for another time.

The Charles McCollough exhibit of "the Art of the Parables" is still ongoing in the Wilson Chapel, and I would like to invite you to attend the reception and gallery talk by the artist that will be held on campus on Thursday, October 18th, from 5:00 - 7:00 pm.
