Earth Day at CMCC
Tammy DeFranco, Donna Marie McElroy and the Circle K Club members provided a fun-filled Earth Day for students and staff April 19. Students participated in yoga, Zumba, painting birdhouses, designing T-shirts, making dog and cat toys, free plants and seeds, playing volleyball and other exciting games. They also received information at the adopt-a-pet table from Instructor Linda Koch, volunteer information from AAUW representatives, and information from the Stone Harbor Wetlands Institute. Students took turns playing the ukelele, dancing and singing. Thank you to the SGA for supporting this wonderful event, to the NJEA for supplying water ice, and to all of the students and staff who helped: Rebecca Ackley, Curtis Fitzpatrick, facilities, Al Jayne, security, Assistant Professor Karl Guilian, Instructor Fran Rauscher, and Dr. Mitchell Levy, vice president of student affairs and branch campus management.
