Gambier is Talking About...

A facelift. The dining room and hallways of the Kenyon Inn were redecorated, creating a more contemporary look. New floors, lighting, and wall coverings in rich tones of silver, black, and brown replaced pastel colors in the restaurant.

Middle Path Day. Students and village residents honored the memory of Richard Ralston '50 H'89 P'71, a former, longtime Kenyon superintendent of buildings and grounds, with the revival of a service project that dates back to 1971. Middle Path Day 2008 included raking, trash cleanup, tree planting, and mulching.

Housing. The Sustainability Group conducted a housing survey to gauge interest in and satisfaction with housing in Gambier and College Township, as authorities work to provide attractive and affordable living accommodations.

Recipes. Community members pitched in to produce an all-new, mouthwatering Gambier Community Cookbook, which became a Kenyon Bookstore bestseller, with more than four hundred copies of the 227-page book sold so far. The cookbook was inspired by a 1964 version published by the Women of the Harcourt Parish of the Church of the Holy Spirit. Copies are available for $20.
