Middle Path Day: A Tradition Renewed
This year the College is reviving Middle Path Day, a community celebration of spring that takes the form of cleanup and beautification chores. The event, to be held on Saturday, April 19, will bring students, faculty, staff, and village residents together, to plant bulbs and trees, mulch plantings, rake pathways, and pick up trash. Middle Path Day originated in 1971, a year after the first Earth Day. This year's efforts will honor the memory of Dick Ralston, Class of 1950, Kenyon's longtime superintendent of buildings and grounds.

Alumni Authors at Reunion Weekend
If you have written a book that's been published in the past five years and you will be attending Reunion Weekend, please notify Sue Dailey (dailey@kenyon.edu) by April 18 if you would like your book to be displayed at the Kenyon Bookstore during the weekend. No self-published books, please. There will be a reception in honor of recently published alumni authors on the Saturday afternoon of Reunion Weekend in the Olin Library.
