   Thank you, Betsy. The event has been canceled. Our Dean has been
   made aware of this issue and it's been taken care of.

     I am writing you to express my utter disgust with the turkey
     bowling event being held today and tomorrow at the FRCC Boulder
     campus.  I find it absolutely appauling that with so many
     families in our community going hungry this Thanksgiving, FRCC
     chooses to waste food and resources.  After looking over the
     Mission and Strategic Plan on the FRCC website, I am even more
     perplexed.  You claim to be recognized for resource development
     and sustainability?  How is throwing frozen turkeys at bowling
     pins and then tossing them in a dumpster to rot being resourceful
     and sustainable? You are committed to fiscal responsibility and
     efficeincy in all operations? Does that include student
     activities?  You value community?  What about the members in the
     community who are struggling to feed their families?  How is
     this event in any way teaching your students to be responsible
     citizens of society?
      
     I hope that in the future, you take the time to consider how
     events such as turkey bowling can negetively reflect you, your
     institution, and all of the students and alumni-whether they take
     part or not.
      
     Sincere Regards,
     Betsy Farmer
