If you've handed in your pledge form already, thank you and good luck with Western's early bird draw. If you haven't, it's not too late! Please give. If you don't have a pledge form, call Kris Dundas at ext. 86415 or Kathy Wallis at ext. 81136.


The Great Stair Climb Expedition, held November 1st had seven energetic folk sporting the Schulich logo, as part of an impressively large Western team. Our group climbed the 472 steps (25 floors worth) in about 8 minutes, making us all proud and bringing in another $1258 for the campaign. The team included: Nancy Fedyk, Gillian Sneddon, Barb Sandford, Karen Funk, Patricia Morris, Stephen Sims, and Kris Dundas. Our thanks to McCabe Promotional Advertising for donating the good-looking t-shirts. Students from Meds & Dents also made the climb!
