Take a Bough, Everyone

Armed with supersized plastic bags to hold their stash
and hooded jackets or big umbrellas to shield them from the
rain, scores of employees descended on Levering Plaza Dec.
10 for a longtime annual tradition on the Homewood campus:
the Dropping of the Greens. The always-anticipated event
allows the campus's seasonally pruned boughs —
ceremoniously lowered from two dump trucks — to be
put to timely holiday use. To sweeten the festivities,
Plant Operations, which organizes the event, supplies lots
of doughnuts and hot cider.
