FUDDY MEERS:  The Tech Theatre Company presents a twisting, turning, hilarious mystery chock full of colorful characters!  “Fuddy Meers ” by American playwright David Lindsay-Abaire, runs November 3-5 & 10-12, 7:30 pm in the McArdle Theater in the Walker Center, adjacent to the Rozsa Center.  Join Claire, a victim of psychogenic amnesia, as she puts together the pieces of the mind-boggling puzzle in which she awakens each morning with no memory of the past.  One morning Claire is abducted by a limping, lisping man who claims that her husband wants to kill her.  The audience views the ensuing mayhem through the kaleidoscope of Claire’s world. The play culminates in a cacophony of revelations, proving that everything is not what it appears to be.   The play’s title “Fuddy Meers” is one character’s attempt to pronounce the phrase “funny mirrors.”  Please note, the play contains adult content.   General Admission $10, Michigan Tech Students Free .

MESSAGE FROM LES COOK:  On Thursday November 10, 2011, Michigan Tech will conduct an emergency response drill at the Student Development Complex. This drill is designed to help the University and emergency response agencies from the local community refine our skills and ensure we have procedures in place for responding to complex disasters.  One key component of this exercise is identifying and treating critically injured victims. Michigan Tech will collaborate with local ambulance services and hospitals to triage patients and ensure they receive timely, effective emergent care.  For this component to work, we need 100+ student volunteers from approximately 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm to serve as victims for the mock incident.  I know all of you are very busy but we would appreciate any help you or your organization can provide during this exercise.  The regular class schedule will be in effect during the exercise and unfortunately class release time is not available.  If you can participate or have organization members who are available to help please ask them to contact Rachel Wussow (rlwussow@mtu.edu) to volunteer.  If you are only available for a portion of the afternoon, please contact Rachel and let her know exactly what time you are available.  Thank you in advance for your support and participating in this training activity.  With appreciation,   Les.
