Mortar Board to Collect Books and Cash
At Homecoming Game for Charity

Posted October 8, 2003

HOLLAND – The Hope College chapter of the Mortar Board national collegiate honor society will be collecting books and cash for local service organizations during the college’s Homecoming game at Holland Municipal Stadium on Saturday, Oct. 18.

The chapter is seeking new books and used books that are in good condition for all ages.

The student-staffed collection will take place on the lawn near the main entrance from 1 p.m. to approximately 4 p.m. The college’s game with Adrian College starts at 2 p.m.

Mortar Board recognizes college seniors for their achievements in scholarship, leadership and service; provides opportunities for continued leadership development; promotes service to colleges and universities; and encourages life-long contributions to the global community. The national organization was founded in 1918.

The 54-member Alcor Chapter has existed at Hope since the 1936-37 academic year, and became a part of the national Mortar Board organization in 1961.
