ENMU VOLUNTEERS SOUGHT FOR TRASH WALK
University individuals and organizations need
to mark the morning of April 20 on their calendars. On this date, the
Roosevelt County Chamber of Commerce, the Pride In Portales Committee
and the City of Portales will hold the annual Great American Trash Pick-up
to rid our community of unsightly trash and litter. As always, the event
will consist of two activities. Those campus groups that have adopted
a mile of highway in Roosevelt County are asked to police their miles
on that day. Bags of trash can either be left off the side of the road
for County pickup or they may be brought back in to town for disposal.
City dump trucks will be stationed in the parking lot of the Chamber
of Commerce for this purpose.
Too, the Chamber is asking for additional student volunteers on April
20 to help clean up within Portales and on Eastern's Campus. As always,
those groups and individuals willing to help should plan to meet behind
the Chamber building around 9:30 a.m. on the 20th for assignments and
supplies. At noon, everyone is invited back to City Park for a Hot Dog
Picnic and Awards Ceremony. Many prizes and cash awards will be distributed
as the Chamber's way of showing its appreciation to the participants.
In order to adequately prepare for food and cleanup assignments, groups
intending to participate in this year's Great American Trash Pick-up
should contact Dr. Patrick Rucker, Eastern New Mexico University, Station
37 at 562.2092 or 359.0038 the week of April 12. (Email: Patrick.Rucker@enmu.edu).
This year marks the fifteenth consecutive year for this worthy event.
At all previous events, Eastern's student body has been amply represented.
So, we expect a good turnout from the campus again this year......and
thanks, in advance, for being a Pride In Portales volunteer.

CEREMONY SET On Tuesday,

A WALK TO CURE CYSTIC FIBROSIS
We need your help! for the "GREAT STRIDES" charity
event; "A Walk to Cure Cystic Fibrosis."
The national society, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, has contacted
me (Nicholas Wright) to organize a local fund raising event- the "Great
Strides walk for cystic fibrosis". Cystic fibrosis is a genetic
disease, which affects approximately 30,000 children and adults in the
US. A defective gene causes the body to produce abnormally thick mucus.
This results in the lungs, in particular, being unable to clean themselves
properly and therefore making the sufferer susceptible to life-threatening
infections. Currently there is no cure! We need your help to raise money
to fund research to find a cure for this debilitating condition.
This is a non-competitive walk/gentle "stroll" of around 10K/6mi.
starting at the Greyhound Arena car park on N. Ave."O" at
9 a.m. on Saturday, April 27. We will walk about three miles out of
town to the junction of "RSV 6" and "RSV U" and
back. The idea is that you pick up a sponsorship pamphlet from either
the biology department office in Roosevelt Hall, (Room 111), or the
Students Union Help Desk. Then using any means at your disposal, (this
can include blackmail, extortion, etc!), obtain sponsors for your walk
and collect the monies in advance. On the day of the walk you should
arrive between 8 and 9 a.m. in advance to register and hand over your
sponsorship money. Then we walk! Water will be available at the halfway
point but, as this is a gentle walk, you can bring your own if you wish!
Kids are welcome but only if accompanied--and they cannot be "walkers"/sponsors
in their own right, only adults please! The same applies to well-behaved
pets! (on leads please--there may be traffic!). If you can collect $75
then you will be entitled to a free Cystic Fibrosis Foundation T-shirt;
larger amounts can gain even better prizes! We hope to have a City Official
start us off at 9 a.m.! So please join us on the 27th. More details
can be obtained from me, Nick Wright, at: Office phone--562.2543; Home
phone, (leave message)--356-2363; Emailemail@example.com.
