Contest

You are invited to participate in this week's contest, sponsored by The Geneseo Foundation. Some member of the Geneseo Community may be the lucky winner of a chocolate bar. To encourage careful reading of this week's bulletin, the Editor has hidden the first two letters of some person's mother's father's uncle's middle name in the text of the Bulletin. The letters are not necessarily in the correct order, nor are the letters necessarily adjacent to each other. If you can find the letters, send a signed, blank check made out to the Geneseo Foundation to Art Hatton, and he just might send you a chocolate bar in return.

GOOD LUCK!
