September at Hamline

posted Sep 9, 2011, 7:54 AM by Hamline Law Veterans Association   [ updated Sep 9, 2011, 7:57 AM ]
 The Veterans Advocacy Committee is planning a couple of activities next week that we hope you will participate in.  The first is an information table in the Giddens Learning Center lobby in the morning on Monday September 12th.  Feel free to stop by between classes and pick up information on Hamline’s veterans programs or speak to members of the Veterans Advocacy Committee.

The second is a barbeque that will be held on that afternoon from 3:30 to 5 p.m. on Hedgeman lawn (by Hedgeman Center, Hewitt Avenue).  The inclement weather location will be Sorin A/B.  If you are planning to attend, please reply to this message by noon Friday Sep 9th, so we can get the right amount of food.  Hope to see as many Hamline students veterans there as possible.

You are probably also aware that this Sunday is the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.  While I’m sure we will be discussing the topic at the barbeque, there is no formal commemoration planned.  Hamline’s Wesley Center, however, is organizing the following activities.  Thanks to Nancy Victorin-Vangerud, Hamline Chaplain and member of the Veterans Advocacy Committee, for providing this information.
Reflections on September 11th Ten Years After, at noon in the Bush Student Center Chapel, led by  Megan Dimond, Coordinator of Religious and Spiritual Life Programs, Rola Alkatout, Student Co-leader of Multi-faith Student Alliance, Rev. Nancy Victorin-Vangerud, University Chaplain. All are welcome!  Contact mdimond01@hamline.edu, ralkatout01@hamline.edu
Volunteer Opportunity with Minnesotans Standing Together: Remembering, Healing, Hope  September 11th Ten Years After

Video Viewing for Reflection on September 11th, BSC HUB, 7pm-9pm    
We will be viewing the video made by Valarie Kaur, who spoke at Hamline two years ago, entitled, Divided We Fall: Americans in the Aftermath.  Kaur was a 20 year old college student when after Sept 11th she set out across the country with her cousin, Sonny, to document hate violence against her Sikh community.  From Ground Zero to the desert towns of the American west, her journey confronted the forces unleashed in a time of national crisis--racism and religion, fear and forgiveness--until she found the heart of America--halfway around the world.  And where have we traveled since then?  Viewing and discussion led by Chaplain Nancy Victorin-Vangerud.  Contact nvictorinvangerud01@hamline.edu.
