Good Morning:

What began two years ago as a way to commemorate the 5th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina is fast becoming a new Tulane University tradition of service.

I hope you will join me and your fellow staff, faculty and alumni on March 16 for "Wave of Green," a day of service to our community.

This year we will again target City Park, one of New Orleans' most beautiful and beloved treasures. We will plant, mulch, clear and beautify this wonderful space while we joke, encourage and help one another. I am betting that at the end of the day, we will realize that we have received a lot more than we have given and that we feel even more renewed than the grounds on which we have worked so hard.

OK, we may feel a little sore, too. But don't let that stop you. Please register before March 2 so we know how many lunches, water and buses to order. "Wave of Green" volunteers will check in at Turchin Stadium at 8 a.m. on March 16. Parking will be available at the Rosen lot and the Diboll Complex. Buses will leave from the Rosen parking lot at 8:30 a.m. to take volunteers to their work sites. Lunch will be provided on-site.

Buses will return volunteers to the Wilson Center at 3 p.m. Then we will all gather near Turchin Stadium for a closing celebration with free food and drinks from 3-5 p.m. All volunteers will also be given free admission to that evening's baseball game against Brown University at 6:30 p.m.

This is going to be another great day of Tulane service and Tulane fun. I hope to see you there.

Have a great weekend,
