Michigan Union reaches century mark

A century after two students decided the campus needed a central gathering place, the Michigan Union celebrates its 100th birthday with an afternoon of festivities. Visitors at the Jan. 14 event took architectural tours, applauded the ribbon-cutting for a new Opera Lounge, and viewed scrapbooks, yearbooks and more. One item on display was a spoon, along with a note dated Sept. 28, 1999: "To whom it may concern, I stole this spoon in 1986. I'm sorry for that and I'd like to return it." Here, the candles on a giant birthday cake are lit by: Jorge Delva, assistant professor of social work and a member of the Michigan Union Board of Representatives (MUBR); Donna Maples, facilities coordinator for the Michigan Union; Linda Siglin, sales and promotion coordinator for the Major Events Office; Robbin St. Amour, financial clerk II in the University Unions business office; Audrey Schwimmer, director of the Michigan Union; and Ben Moerman, chair of MUBR.
