Emmanuel College’s Volunteer Corps once again rallied to the call and arrived early in the morning on April 14, 2011, to help install 400 plants around the library’s new reading plaza.
Volunteers included local alumni, the men’s basketball team, this summer’s Costa Rica missions team, and members of the Emmanuel College staff.
Within one hour, all 400 plants were sorted and arranged according to the landscape plan. From 9 a.m. until 5:30 p.m., volunteers dug holes and put plants into the ground. Lunch was provided at the Emmanuel College Dining Hall.
A marathon-style golf tournament is similar to a walk-a-thon or jog-a-thon. Before the tournament, each golfer gathers pledges. Participants are encouraged to play 100 holes of golf (or as many as possible), at their own pace, while enjoying the fellowship of friends and the benefits that will be provided. At the end of the allotted time, each golfer collects money according to how many holes he or she was able to play.

Emmanuel College Alumna Mollie Walton Corbett (’95) sang “God Bless America” during the seventh-inning stretch of Game 5 of the World Series on Nov. 1. Her performance was viewed by more than 50,000 fans in Texas Rangers Stadium and broadcast to millions of television viewers.
