Record number of volunteers gather for Reunion Volunteer Work Project 2013

By Rebecca Fensler, Alumni Relations Officer for Volunteers and Chapters

More than 100 alumni and friends convened on campus June 10-13, 2013, for the largest annual Reunion Volunteer Work Project to date. 108 volunteers gave more than 2,568 hours to Antioch College during the week leading up to Reunion 2013. Some traveled from places as far away as Alaska while others live locally in Yellow Springs. Many were long-time volunteers. For others, this was their very first work project. For E. Macdougall “Mac” Palmer ’61 coming to work project is a tradition—one he began decades ago in 1986. This year, Mac could be found every day, alongside Jonathan Zimmerman ‘70, in the greenhouse, repairing tables and removing old steam pipes.
