For Adrian Hollingbury, Manager of the OVC Cafeteria

10. Keep September 9th open! Very early in the coming semester we will be losing one of our much-loved community members - Adrian Hollingbury, Manager of the OVC Cafeteria. You probably already know this, and this is not an official notification. Instead, it's an attempt to solicit your participation in a special event designed to make sure Adrian does not leave without our having had an opportunity, collectively, to celebrate his time here and let him know how much we will miss him. It’s an opportunity to express our appreciation for his many kindnesses, sparkling personality and wit.

Adrian has served many College groups or constituencies in the OVC over the years. We are hoping to arrange a small get-together in the afternoon of September 9, 2016 where everyone can come along to shake his hand, BUT more importantly, we are hoping to have a series of "happenings" throughout the day, and we are hoping each group can arrange one such exercise. Nothing should take place that is potentially damaging to person or property, but whatever happening your group contrives, it should be good fun and something everyone can enjoy - with Adrian being the focus. We don't need to know the details, we just need to know you will rise to the challenge and when you hope it will take place - so we can avoid two things happening at the same time. This should be a day that everybody, and especially Adrian thoroughly enjoys.

If you need more details or ideas, get in touch (more info to follow) with Kim Best at
