“Little School March for Babies”- March 2, 10:30-11:30 a.m.

Help support the MOD by lining the walkways as our Little School students walk from the Little School (by the Teaching Zoo) to F Building. The students will begin walking at 10:30 a.m. and walk pass the Zoo, go up the sidewalk toward D Building, turn right and go between C and E Buildings, through the P Building Breezeway, and ending in F Building. We will stop for a snack and a story in F Building. Please line our walk route and drop coins in our buckets!

“Chili Cook Off” – March 15,  11 a.m.-1 p.m.

Join us in the Oak Grove for the Chili Cook-Off competition. You can taste, eat and vote for your favorite chili! For $5, you may purchase a large bowl of the chili of your choice and a drink. For only $1, you can select any five chilis to taste. What better way to determine which is your favorite? You may vote on your favorite chili by dropping a dime in the jar located in front of each pot of chili.

Does your chili have what it takes? Do you want to help out the March of Dimes? If so, please email  gloria.kersh@sfcollege.edu. All you have to do is prepare your favorite chili recipe, bring your Crockpot to HR on the morning of March 15, and pick up it up after 1:30 p.m. We are hoping for 20 pots of chili, about 10-14 folks to serve, and plenty of healhty appetites.
