Volunteers Sought for New UNO Green Thumbs Program

Green UNO is looking for individuals interested in participating in a new campus-wide beautification project. UNO Green Thumbs' volunteers will be responsible for deadheading flowers and weeding near buildings and designated common areas.

Each volunteer will provide his/her own gloves; however, Landscape Services will make available gardening tools and receptacles for the disposal of plants. If interested, sign up to participate at this link.

Individuals who sign up will be invited to a kick-off meeting. All green thumbs' volunteers are required to fill out a Faculty/Employee Volunteer Form. The designated building leader will determine participation. Proposed volunteer times: before/after work and over lunch hour. This pilot program will run until Columbus Day (mid-October).

Don Smith Retirement Reception This Thursday

A retirement reception will be held in honor of Don Smith at 3 p.m. this Thursday, May 31, in the Milo Bail Student Center Chancellor's Board Room. Smith has served for more than 24 years as the supervisor of Energy Management and Controls Services in the Facilities Management and Planning offices. 

"During Don's career with UNO, he has experienced and incorporated many technological changes to the energy systems at UNO that many of us are unaware," said Larry Morgan, assistant director of Facilities Management and Planning. "His commitment to UNO and understanding of the campus energy systems has served all of us on a daily basis from the heating and cooling of our offices and classrooms to the operations of the Henningson Campanile bells during the week, holidays and special occasions."

Join Facilities Management and Planning staff in thanking him for his years of service.
