Good Monday Morning,
I hope you have a wonderful week. There is not a lot of news, which is about to dwindle down for the next few weeks. However, I found a few articles on “Women in Education” and “Universities and Organic Farming” you might find interesting.

FUNDRAISER/EVENTS

Our fellow alumna, Kim Cool, who is working on coffee book still needs your help. Please send high quality photos AND comments of Sweet Briar, its history, and the events of the past months. Thanks

Submitted by Kim Cool
THE BOOK IS EVOLVING!
It still will be 80 pages including index, full color, glossy paper and landscape format 9 by 12 inches with a $25 retail price.

As Sweet Briar is what it is because of its faculty staff and students, and also was saved because of those groups coming together and led by the Vixen spirit
I want the book to be representative of the Saving Sweet Briar group…..my wonderful new friends of all ages and so many various classes from 1950s to 2015, faculty members and staff….It still will be a history of the college with photos but it will be so much better with input from more people and pictures from all the various factions and maybe even some historic photos……
and certainly a photo of our wonderful new president and some of those terrific Vixens who led the charge these past few months because without them there would be no need for this book

The more participants the better. Send high resolution color photos and comments or special memories or whatever else one deems needs to be told to:
kcoolone@aol.com
Thank you one and all for all your help. Books are my business but this will be a labor of love with the proceeds going to SBC

My friend and colleague, Laura Lenhert, is working on pottery again, so those of you who were interested may now contact her and place your orders. What a great way to commemorate 7/2/15! She can duplicate what she so graciously created for me, or, you can send her a photo of what you would like, and she can do that for you. I have had her do fraternity/sorority houses for my kids, houses, and even my daughter’s bridal bouquet as a wedding gift. She can also personalize on the back. Laura will make a contribution to SSB at a later date based on the number of orders that either reference my name, or SSB. I encourage you to reach out to Laura:
email Laura: potterybylaura@yahoo.com

website: http://www.potterybylaura.com

Platters (like below): $50
Square platters: $45
Round Ornaments: $15
