RINDGE, NH (April 17, 2012) —As part of an annual Community Service weekend, Franklin Pierce University students and staff rolled up their sleeves along with Rindge community members on Saturday, April 14, to help the Rindge Historical Society with spring clean-up at their Museum in Rindge Center. President Birge and Vice President of Institutional Advancement Ahmad Boura were there as well, working with the group of about 32 FPU students, alumni, and Rindge community members (about half from the town, half from FPU).

To add to the community spirit, Grappelli’s Pizza of Peterborough provided pizza for everyone; Grappelli’s owner, Steve  Faccidomo, is a graduate from the class of 1969. Dave Groder ’66, was also on hand to help out—one of the original 97 students who started in September 1963. Everyone enjoyed the time together and the Museum in Rindge Center is ready for spring!
