  • Outdoor Encounters

    Outdoor EncountersWritten By Nathan Bolls on February 2, 2017We have many “snowbirds” on campus during the summer.  This led me, during 21 and 24 January, to hike every street and trail on our campus except for the line of trees on the ridge between Meadowlark Valley and the cottages along the east side of Meadowlark Road.  I was involved in the “Sport of Kings:”  a scouting and counting venture m...

  • Letter to the Messenger

    Letter to the Messenger on February 2, 2017Submitted by Helen Roser Now it can be told. Instead of a respectable government para-legal, I should have been an entertainer. The ham in me adored the thunderous applause. It was in the days when CBS Television had its first three-camera show. It was taped and would circulate for two years. Very big deal. I was invited to be a jury member on the new ...

    Outdoor EncountersWritten By Nathan Bolls on November 2, 2016Those sturdy conifer and deciduous trees gracing our Campus and Natural Area prove each winter, by standing and taking the full brunt of whatever winter throws at them, that they are tough cookies.

    HOG Wild PartyWritten By Becky Fitzgerald on October 26, 2016The third time was definitely a charm. By all measures, the 3rd annual HOGTOBERFEST, a FOOD, FRIENDS and FUNdraising event to benefit the Good Samaritan Fund, was a success. Some gift-in-kind and expense amounts are still outstanding, but this year’s revenue was nearly $18,400, a significant increase over the nearly $6000 in revenue real...

    Library News on October 19, 2016Submitted by Bea Rasmussen  To the person who borrowed the green basket that sits on the fireplace, used for return books, please return it to the Library.

    Letter to the Messenger on October 19, 2016On Thoughts About Presidents Submitted by Helen Roser In this season of presidential campaigns, I remember my favorite president, Harry Truman. He came into office after President Roosevelt’s death when we were engaged in World War II. His courage and strength of character brought the war to an earlier end.

    Ask SarahWritten By Sarah Duggan on October 19, 2016Trucks, noise and concrete – oh my! It seems like we’ve all been living with the noise and inconvenience of the concrete work for a while now, but as I walk from the furthest distance on campus to my office I remind myself that a few weeks of displacement is completely bearable compared to falling forever into a cavernous pot hole! Nonetheless, w...

  • Update on Shopping Cart Project

    Becky Fitzgerald Several weeks ago, the possibility of purchasing more grocery-style carts was presented to us. We currently have five of these carts and an anticipated need for five more.

  • SOLD! Auction revenue tops 2015 effort

    Becky Fitzgerald Eighty-six. 486. $414. $8,671. Put these numbers together, and they add up to another successful Meadowlark Hills benefit auction.
