Heritage Corner ProofSouth Tunnel Graphics are released for production.  Heritage Corner Graphics will be released Tuesday Morning after a few edits (If you want a close up view to check the spelling on your name you can download this .pdf file: heritage_corner_preflight. By the way we are aware of four typos – you see any other typos please send an email to the Heritage Committee ASAP:

Other graphics including Community Corner and Timeline Wall will follow shortly.  Huge kudos to Flying Hand Design and Repros, Inc. from CSU and Fenn College Swimmers, Divers and friends worldwide for helping us make this a reality.

We have a few more surprises as well so stay tuned.  Hint: Think “Outside the pool”.
