Last week Craig Smith, Vice President for Institutional Advancement and Executive Director of the BCC Foundation, spoke to us about the college.  With a short PowerPoint presentation, Craig provided an overview of BCC facts, enrollment demographics, plans underway for facility improvements and touched on the controversy surrounding the turf field installation.  Craig noted that the College had established a food pantry for students going without.  After his presentation Joel Greenberg gave a brief extemporaneous explanation of the history of BCC.

It's January.  We're at the Crowne for the month.
Auction Update - Panic Mode!

Joan DiMartino reported last week that the Club was $25,000 short of our goal.  They have yet again pushed their deadline back, but please do not delay.  If you can secure items, please get them to MOLARI before Thursday's (1/21) meeting.  We're counting on all members to get their items in.  Our Club benevolence depends on this auction success.  The sign-up sheet for auction volunteers was passed around last week.  If you have not yet signed up, we need your commitment to help at the auction.  Contact Gail or Joan to let them know how you will help.  Joan also reported that the proceeds of the auction within an auction this year will go to Barton's Crossing, the homeless shelter located on upper North Street.   Auction tickets have been passed out at the last two meetings.  If you haven't received your tickets yet, contact Joan by email ( and she will get them to you.
