Glassboro Unity DayGlassboro UNITY DAY on Saturday, October 5 was a HUGE success!!!  AFT volunteers were on hand meeting and greeting the public and distributing AFT trinkets!
We spoke with 245 men, women and children with our US History Trivia Game and bookmark coloring station. People were having a good time attempting to answer questions that might have been featured on “Are You as Smart as a 5th grader?” television show. Children that didn’t know the answer… learned something new that day. (Maybe even some of the parents learned too!) We got to provide our platform when the question of “Why do we have unions in America?” was pulled from the basket.

I would like to thank the volunteers that came out to assist that day; LuAnn Maslanik (Financial Aid), Saudia Beverly (CGCE), Esther Mummert (College of Communications and Creative Arts), and Joy Xin and Laurie Haines (College of Education). A special thank you to Diane Doorman (College of Education) for assisting as Site Co-Coordinator and braving the heat the whole day to work at the booth with me! Also, without Diane bringing her tent to the event… we would have melted in the heat!

Thank you to Ruth in the AFT Office for assembling “give aways” for the event! Thank you to Esther and Diane for providing the tables that day!
