I. Run for Refugees

MPB would like to invite you to run/walk in New Haven for the ‘10th Annual Run for Refugees’ on Super Bowl Sunday, February 5.  The 5K runs through East Rock and begins at Wilbur Cross High School (181 Mitchell Drive, New Haven, CT) at 10:00 AM. 

The run benefits IRIS, a non-profit organization that helps refugees begin their lives in Connecticut. For more information, see http://www.irisct.org/

We have 15 Morse-specific, free registrations that are allocated on a first come, first serve basis – please register soon as these places go quickly. Register here while they last.  The code is: MORSE17. This code expires when all slots are filled. 

Be sure to wear Morse red to the race. Both Dean Silverman and MPB will be running too!

II. Fellow’s Display in the Arts Library

Our own Morse Fellow, Lindsay King, invites all Morsels to her new exhibition, “The Play’s the Thing: 50 Years of Yale Repertory Theatre,” which just opened last week. It’s in the exhibition space on the lower level of the Arts Library, and includes production photographs, programs and other ephemera, and costumes from the history of Yale Rep. It will be on view until the end of March. 

 

You can find more information here:

Lindsay is the Associate Director for Access and Research Services at the Haas Arts Library, and a terrific resource for anyone seeking assistance with library research.

III. Donate Your Empty Ink Cartridges!

Recycle4Fundraising is collecting used printer and copier cartridges, for which all proceeds will go to the International Rescue Committee, who is working to aid in the refugee crisis during the Trump presidency.  There are UPS labels in the office so that no one will have to pay to participate; as soon as there are six donations, the first wave can be sent off, so the next time you have an empty cartridge, please bring it in to Mary Powers!
