Spooning for Solutions

Letter to the Editor | Wednesday, April 22, 2009

Dear Notre Dame,

I am writing in to inform you about an awesome event this Thursday on South Quad. Last year, you may have read about some brave and noble scholars setting the Guinness World Record for the World’s Largest Spoon Train with 126 people. This was a great deal of fun, largely because spooning is one of the best things in the world. This year, we are going to attempt to shatter the old record in an amazing display of greatness on Thursday, April 23rd. This year; however, we are going to be a little bit more ambitious. All proceeds from this event will go towards research for cures of childhood diseases through Alpine Children’s Charity. It is a great organization and a great way to spend an afternoon. So I encourage you to please come out to South Quad at 3:30 on Thursday and spoon with hundreds of other spooning enthusiasts. Remember its all for the children.

In spooning,

Joel Sharbrough
