Unity in the Community celebrates cultures
The annual Unity in the Community outdoor festival is scheduled for April 23. This day-long celebration brings together our diverse neighbors from around the world. In the past there have been events including music and dance from Latin, Irish, Native American and Japanese cultures. The campus-wide picnic will provide a taste of ethnic food for everyone (food will be made available for purchase for those without a meal-plan). Bag lunches and blankets are encouraged if you are visiting, so you can stay and enjoy the multicultural festivities. This event is located on the University Center mall.
Choral group to host fundraiser for trip
The UWRF Women’s Chamber Ensemble is hosting a brunch and silent auction fundraiser May 20 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at St. Bridget’s Parish School Gym.
The menu for the brunch will include an egg bake, rolls, fruit, juice and coffee. The cost is $5 for adults and $3 for students and children. Money raised will help support the ensemble’s performance tour to Venice, Florence and Rome, Italy, in May. All are welcome to attend this event.
Motorcycle parking to be enforced
Motorcycles must park in designated motorcycle stalls (located in A, E, F, G, O and Q lots). A permit is not required for motorcycle parking.
Mopeds and motor scooters (under 50cc engine) may be parked in bicycle racks on campus, provided they are within the confines of the actual bike rack.
Parking such vehicles on sidewalks, curbs, etc. next to the bike rack will be subject to a citation. Such vehicles may not operate under power between the roadway and bicycle racks.
Operation off roadways could result in a fine of up to $249.00 and impoundment.
