"There is always a piece of fortune in misfortune." --Japanese Proverb

Final day of ice cream taste testing, voting in UC 

College of Arts and Science Dean Brad Caskey, top, samples new flavors of ice cream with students Tuesday in the UC as part of the CAFES Centennial Ice Cream Flavor Contest. Tasting and voting continues today from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. in the UC lobby for Lemon-Lovin’ Centennial Poppy Seed Muffin, Centennial Wake Up Call, and Midnight Centennial Snack flavors. More than 188 flavors suggestions were submitted and the winning flavor will receive a $100 VISA gift card. Taste the winning flavor at CAFES campus-wide Birthday Celebration in September and starting this fall, the Centennial flavor will be available for purchase in the Falcon Foods Store in Ag Science and the C-Store in the UC. Can't make it to the UC to taste our finalist flavors? Look for the Centennial Ice Cream Flavor Poll on CAFES Facebook page for your chance to vote until 2 p.m. today.

Printer repair service contract extended

The existing Printer Repair Service Contract with Laser Sharp that was to expire April 30 has been extended one final time to finish out this fiscal year and will now expire June 30. If your printer has a TLC sticker on it, you should continue purchasing remanufactured toner cartridges with Laser Sharp to insure that your printer will still be covered for repair service. Beginning July 1, all printers will be on a Time & Material basis for repair service until we switch over to a Print Management System, still to be determined. If your printer does not have a TLC sticker on it, you have two options for ordering toner cartridges: order new tone cartridges from Staples or order remanufactured toner cartridges from Cartridge Savers. All contact information can be found on the Purchasing website at http://www.uwrf.edu/Purchasing/SupplyOrderingInformation.cfm
