Community unites to support one of its own

For over 23 years, Marge Petteys has brightened the days of all who enter and exit Soper Commons Dining Hall, and recently the Hamilton community showed Marge that same kind of support. After her husband’s failing health led to some financial concerns, 844 people raised $25,875 over six days on the crowd funding website GoFundMe.

Hamilton comes together

Tough times make close friends; at least they did this week at Hamilton. Anyone who visited Commons in the last twenty years was greeted by the warm, motherly embrace of Marge Petteys. If you wanted to sum up the brightest part of someone’s time at Hamilton, we bet Marge would come in pretty high on everyone’s list. When it is raining Marge tells you to wear a jacket, when you are stressed Marge tells you to take it easy on yourself. She cares about every kid she sees, and she never lets a day go by without being one of the warmest members of campus. So when Amit Taneja started a fundraiser for Marge last weekend, it did not take long for the campus to reciprocate Marge’s love many times over.
