29 Aug You Never Know Who You’ll Meet…

Preparing the logistics for Telluride’s summer programs entails a lot of different tasks, from creating contracts to ordering books and…buying extra sheets. Telluride’s Administrative Director Ellen Baer was in the Ithaca Target this June buying extra sheets to have on hand. The clerk at the checkout register noted the large quantity of sheets and wondered what they were for. Ellen explained they were for a summer program. “What, kids don’t supply their own sheets anymore?” the clerk asked jokingly. “What summer program is this?” Ellen explained about TASS and TASP, and the clerk laughed. It turns out he was Tom Flood SP67 BB68 DS69 and was very familiar with Telluride summer programs! Tom is retired and spending the summer in Ithaca, and hopes to swing by the TA office and say hello in earnest soon.
