Greetings from The Gambier House!

Wow, despite the upcoming weekend weather, it IS spring in Gambier.  The crocus, forsythia, hellebore and some daffodils are showing their colors and the mulch guys are all over the neighborhood.

Spring Break at Kenyon is nearly a memory but, thanks to the Admissions Office, a whole lot of new memories are about to be made…rumor has it that the acceptance notifications are on their way.  If that’s true, then you’d best make your reservations for a room for the next few weeks pdq!  Our weekends are pretty full and the weekdays are picking up.  We do take a wait list for every evening, so don’t hestitate to call or email if the night of your dreams is unavailable.

February was quite the month.  Kenyon sports teams did fabulous things: Go Ladies in swimming and basketball.  The Lords are no slouch in either sport.  There were plays and concerts — the Dirty Dozen Brass Band out of New Orleans blew the roof off Rosse mid month.  The spring months are shaping up to be just as exciting with more plays and concerts, sporting events and big conference on privacy sponsored by the Center for the Study of American Democracy.

As always, Amish country is just up the road and the Kokosing Gap Trail knows no season.  Of late we’ve seen bluebirds, woodpeckers and a Cooper’s hawk while traversing the Trail.  The Kokosing River is running high and fast due to spring rains — just have a care how you see it.

Windows, beds and refrigerators have been spruced up at the House and we’re looking forward to having you stay, whether you are looking for local color or are visiting The College.

Hope you’ll join us: it is nearly porch rocker season.  See you soon.
