Hello WOC family! Come check out some of the awesome outdoor events we have
going on this week. All events are open to the Williams College community.

Sign up for the Accessibility Van for Mountain Day!

Mountain Day season is almost upon us! If you need accessible transport to
either Stone Hill or Stoney Ledge (ie you would not otherwise be able to
hike/walk to these locations but would still like to attend), please fill
out this form <https://forms.gle/U8Gd5FPztr3tM5H89> to reserve a spot for
the van to either or both locations. Space is limited. Vans will leave from
campus, and will drive directly to the festivities. Once on Stone Hill and
Stony Ledge, there will be donuts, cider, scenic vistas, and various music
performances. If you have any questions about transportation, please
contact Sam Magid ([log in to unmask]) and Li Platz ([log in to unmask]).
