Many Enjoy Grand Opening Week Events

Students, faculty, staff, and neighbors enjoyed a variety of events planned for the official grand opening week of the Bootsma Bookstore Café.

Activities included: an open house for faculty, staff, and students; student focused events, such as a bonfire and Super Bowl party; performances by TrinProv, Jon Wenzel ’07, The Eastern Sky, and Jeff Bodkins, Brandon Muske, and Joseph Barker; and events planned in conjunction with Homecoming weekend, such as the book signing with alumnus and author Travis Thrasher ’93, and story reading and face painting for children.

The bookstore and the café held several drawings during the week.

The café offered complimentary snacks and coffee samples and gave away t-shirts and gift certificates. The winners of the commuter student drawing for a $25 gas card were Brenda Roethel ’09 and Matt VanderWoerd ’10.

Congratulations to all the winners of the drawing at the bookstore on Friday, February 8.
