The Public Safety Department wishes to thank all the volunteers who arrived at Ladies of Charity to deliver a truckload of toys, clothing and household goods! Members of Student Life, Griffins Giving Back, Facilities and Campus Ministry all helped deliver the donations, which were so generous and heartwarming. We are so grateful.
Makerspace is an opportunity for all participants to engage in fun and creative activities. This year, the two holiday card workshops were no exception. Thank you to the students, faculty, administrators and staff who took time out of their day to send messages of holiday cheer and hope.
The first batch of holiday cards were sent to detainees at the Batavia Detention Center with the assistance of Grace Speranza and her associates at Justice for Migrant Families. The second batch of cards pictured below were sent to Fort Drum, NY for several soldiers who were injured during deployment and are at a Warrior Transition Unit. Thank you to Ben Dunkle, professor of Digital Media Arts, who prepared cards, purchased supplies and offered wonderful encouragement as participants worked on their handwriting and calligraphy skills.

Ross Publishing announced its latest book by Paul Young, EdD, emeritus professor of Education, entitled Niagara Falls, Survivor of the Ice Age, the Natural History of the Niagara River and Its Gorge. It is a recounting of the 12,000 year old factors producing the five prominent sections of the gorge, retreating glaciers, vanishing lakes, a forty acre whirlpool that reverses, variations in the height of the falls and differing volumes of water cascading over the falls. Included is the geologic history of the different rock layers along the gorge revealing how and where they were originally formed, and their impact on the seven mile gorge and its recession. The book is meant for the general reader, local residents and visitors to the area.
