On February 27, forget your
diet and help celebrate Meredith's
Meredith's Charter Centennial
birthday cake will be cut on
February 27 at 11:00 am in Johnson
Hall's Rotunda. If you are used to
Belk Dining Hall's monthly
birthday cakes, you are in for a
surprise. Those regubr cake slices
with awesome chocolate icing
are always devoured by 5: IS p.m.
but this birthday cake will feed
2,000 people and is five times
lai;ger than the usual cakes.
The giant double layer yellow
cake with vanilla icing is equal in
size to four dining room table
tops. Meredith's logo, in mauve
and gray, will be formed from
two additional layers in the lower
left corner of the cake. The
centennial slogan will be written
across the bottom.
President John Weems will
cut the birthday cake at 11:00 am
and students and alumnae will
step in to help with slicing duties
until 3:00 pm.

Alumnae Association is

hour to call prospective
donors. When asked about
this new method of
conducting the phonathon,
Rebecca Askew of the
Department of Annual
Giving replied, “I like using
paid callers because they
are more efficient and we
don't have to retrain a new
set of callers each night"
