Maryland Unites Labyrinth Stone Project
Want to do something a bit different this Friday morning, October 2? Our colleagues at the UMD Arboretum are sponsoring a Maryland Unites project for the Chapel Garden of Reflection and Remembrance. We will be giving a facelift to the Labyrinth, including the addition of lovely black river stones in the sunken pathways.
The entire volunteer period is 8 am to noon, and partial shifts are possible. To sign up, please go to this address: http://vpaf.umd.edu/community/mdunites/. Would love to see you!
The Chapel bells ring the Maryland Fight Song at 11:30 am (or 1:30 pm) and 30 minutes before each home and away football game.
