FROM LAST TIME


Spring cleaning? Michelle Person ’01 is “pretty sure the girl in the photo is Mary, whose last name I can’t remember. She was an Accent with a powerful voice. I watched her in many a concert where she sang with my roomie Sarah Conti ’01.” Kerry Shearman ’01 remembers her as “an ’00 graduate who was part of the Sonneteers,” but she’s surer about the other person in the photo: Zak Trojano ’02. Person admits she has “no idea what they’re doing,” while Shearman guesses that they’re “collecting donations for a community project.” Pretty good. In fact, Tro- jano is volunteering with Mary Patterson ’01 in May of 2002, when Patterson was finishing a yearlong stint as


Skidmore’s first recycling intern (pioneering the way to the col- lege’s hiring of part-time North Woods stewards and a full-time professional sustainability coordinator). The photo shows them loading a rental truck with items left behind in the resi- dence halls by departing students. With help from a nonprofit called Dump and Run, Patterson and volunteers gathered four truckloads of stuff (mattress toppers, clothes, fans, you name it), sorted and stored it, and then drove it all to Saratoga’s farmers’ market pavillion, where they held an enormous tag sale. The sale did a brisk business, and by its end she handed over $2,500 to five Sarato- ga charities.—SR
