Dear Friends:

Please join me and hundreds of your fellow staff, faculty and alumni on Friday, Aug. 27 for a Day of Service to our community in commemoration of the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.

We will spend our day either building homes for Habitat for Humanity or mulching, clearing brush, planting trees, weeding and otherwise beautifying a true New Orleans gem, our 1,300-acre City Park.

Don't worry about transportation or lunch. We will provide both, along with a closing celebration with food and drink. We just need your commitment to mark this landmark anniversary, honor Katrina's victims and survivors and make a meaningful contribution to the renewal of our city. With the full force of the Green Wave behind us, we can make a real difference indeed.

Those who cannot participate on Aug. 27 are encouraged to join 1,000 students who will hold their traditional day of service, Outreach Tulane, the following day.

For more information on both of these events, please visit the Wave of Green website. I look forward to seeing you there.


Office of the President Emeritus, 1555 Poydras St, Suite 700, New Orleans, LA 70112 504-274-3638
