From the absolutely fabulous Katie “runs this school” McLaughlin ’15,
Are you interested in sustainable energy and exercise?
Wesleyan’s one and only bike generator group WesCycle
is looking for members to join our team for tomorrow and beyond! If you want to learn a really incredible new skill, make some friends, and do some good for the world (and your thighs) this could be the student group you’ve been waiting for!
We will be powering a blender for delicious smoothies at the Feet to the Fire Riverfront Encounter event
tomorrow from 12-5pm in Harbor Park. It should be a wonderful event with food, games, and music. We are actively recruiting new members to be trained to maintain the generators for next semester but also could really use some extra hands tomorrow.
If you are interested in helping out for any part of the Riverfront Encounter, or if you are interested in helping out in the future but can’t make it tomorrow, please email kmclaughlin[at]wesleyan[dot]edu
Date: Just tomorrow or beyond!
Time: Event is 12-5pm but you can help for any period of time.
Place: Harbor Park near the CT river
Cost: Free smoothies!

From Becca “champ” Wilton ’15:
WesFRESH (Wesleyan Students for Real Ethical Sustainable Habits) invites you to celebrate the signing of the Real Food Challenge Campus Commitment!
The Real Food Challenge Campus Commitment is a contract that will be signed by President Michael Roth and Dining Director Michael Strumpf to increase real food at Wesleyan to 20% by 2020. Real food is food that is local and community-based, ecologically sound, fair to humans and ethical for animals.
In honor of this historic event in Wesleyan’s history and to celebrate Earth Week, there will be speakers, the signing of the commitment, and a picnic-style meal with food grown at local farm Urban Oaks and other sustainable farms.
