Summer Movie Night at Andover Newton Begins Thursday, June 5th!
------------------------
Beginning this Thursday, June 5th and continuing every Thursday evening
throughout the summer, the Student Association and the Office of
Recruitment and Admission have teamed up to show a movie in the Wilson
Chapel beginning at 7:00 p.m. The Chapel has a fantastic, theater-sized
screen and a great sound system. Bring your own comfortable cushion,
chair, or bean bag (or be stuck with the pretty uncomfortable chapel
chairs) and join us!

This Thursday's movie will be Juno:

Facing an unplanned pregnancy, teenage Juno (Ellen Page) devises a plan
to locate the proverbial perfect parents to adopt her baby. But the
seemingly ideal couple Juno chooses still has some growing up to do.
Now, everyone in Juno's world must do a little soul-searching. Michael
Cera co-stars while Jason Bateman and Jennifer Garner play the pair of
affluent yuppies anxious for a child in this offbeat coming-of-age
comedy, which won the 2008 Oscar for Best Original Screenplay.

There's no need to RSVP for any of the movies but if you have any
questions, feel free to contact Liz Miller or Sean Porter at
recruitevents@ants.edu. See you Thursday!

------------------------
Recycling TVs and More
------------------------
For those of you needing a place to deposit your old televisions,
furniture and more, and knowing that our dumpsters cannot accommodate
such items, please remember the Newton recycling center. The center (on
River St) takes computers, televisions, compact fluorescent bulbs, etc.,
and is free of charge to Newton residents. It's open every morning
except Sundays. No appointment is needed. This is a good way to get
rid of old equipment without fouling up our on-site recycling or trash
disposal systems!

Thank you,

Nancy Nienhuis
Dean of Students and Community Life

Invitation to the Coolidge Corner Theatre
------------------------
The Coolidge Corner Theatre wants to let you know about two films that
we are opening that may be of particular interest to seminarians:
CONSTANTINE'S SWORD and A JIHAD FOR LOVE
(http://constantinessword.com/) and (http://www.ajihadforlove.com/).
CONSTANTINE'S SWORD, by Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Oren
Jacoby, is an astonishing exploration of the dark side of Christianity,
following acclaimed author and former priest James Carroll on a journey
of remembrance and reckoning. A JIHAD FOR LOVE is the world's first
feature documentary to explore the complex global intersections between
Islam and homosexuality. CONSTANTINE'S SWORD opened May 29 and A JIHAD
FOR LOVE opens June 27.

'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,

------------------------
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 organically....no 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:
