Picnic to Celebrate Success of The Plan for Mount Holyoke 2003

The all campus picnic set for May 6 will feature traditional picnic fare and a performance by the band Inner Orchestra, shown here.

In 1997, the College adopted a six-year comprehensive blueprint for Mount Holyoke's future. This year marks the completion of that initiative, the highly successful Plan for Mount Holyoke 2003, which has had an impact on virtually every area of College life. As the College stands on the threshold of embarking on The Plan for Mount Holyoke 2010 (the board is set to vote on it this weekend), President Joanne V. Creighton felt it was "important to acknowledge the hard work of the community in bringing to fruition the goals of The Plan for Mount Holyoke 2003 and the overall success of the Plan." To this end, the president is sponsoring a special picnic for the MHC community. Set for Tuesday, May 6, from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm on Pageant Field, which is located behind Gettell Amphitheater, the picnic will feature live music and great food. There will even be commemorative souvenirs.

Picnic goers will choose from grilled hot dogs and burgers (both vegan and traditional versions of each), potato salad and spicy black bean salad, brownies, and watermelon, among other picnic fare. Dining will be to the tunes of the band Inner Orchestra, which describes its music as "sophisticated, forward-thinking, danceable, and fun." Featuring four horns, bass, drums, and guitar, the band combines the influences of Herbie Hancock, James Brown, Duke Ellington, and Yusef Lateef in its writing and improvisation. In the event of rain, lunch will be served at the luncheon centers, and the band will be cancelled.


The counter is 3,607
