— Pie A Professor Volunteers Needed April 27th from 1-3 and on April 28th from 2-4. The CJ/FS Association is holding a fund raiser on April 27th from 1-3 and on April 28th from 2-4. For $1, you will receive a paper plate with whipped cream on it and can toss it in the face of your favorite, or least favorite, person from Hilbert College. We are looking for some adventurous folks to donate to this fun event as well as those folks brave enough to sit in the chair with a barber’s smock to be the recipient of those cruel people who desire to toss the plate.

Please let me know your availability to sit in the chair so I can get an idea of what we can accomplish. By the way, I’ll be willing to sit on April 28th from 2-4 so come join us for some fun and fund raising. Thank you!  Dr. Mark Paoni — Office:  (716) 926-8861 || Email:
