Going Away Party for Evn Tomeny
Many of you know that Evn Tomeny will be leaving us to pursue further education. He has been a wonderful member of the staff and the community at large and will be greatly missed. Please join Evn on Thursday June 12th at 2:00 PM for a going away party in the business office.

Andover Newton Dumpsters
'Tis the season to be cleaning out rooms and packing up for the summer. Please remember that only trash may be thrown into Andover Newton dumpsters. No furniture, bicycles, or electronics--especially items like computer monitors, which contain hazardous materials--should be thrown into the dumpsters. Our trash removal company will not empty dumpsters into which non-authorized items have been thrown. If you have any questions about what is allowed in the dumpsters, please contact your Resident Representative or Amelia O'Dowd in the Housing Office (ext. 261).

Thank you for your cooperation,

Nancy Nienhuis
Dean of Students and Community Life

Gardens at ANTS
Gardening is underway....others welcome!!

The "soil" in our garden plot across the road from the southeast end of Davis Hall is turned. There are many small rocks, so root crops are probably not the best choice this year. Also we will want to remove some of the remaining roots to make room for veggies. Being the first year this has been cultivated in many years it requires some persistence to prepare the soil. All have agreed to garden chemical fertilizers or pesticides.

Twelve plots have been marked off with a small (about 1 foot) path between plots. Eight plots are already claimed. The remaining four plots are open, first come, first served.....but you must check in with us to see which are the ones still available. We have tools that were purchased by the SA in previous years.

Please pass the word. If you are interested contact:
