You don’t stop laughing because you grow old. You grow old because you stop laughing. — Michael Pritchard

With a high intensity academic year ending, laughter is important to maintain our (in)sanity.  I have a file called “Funny Stuff” where I keep funny artifacts from my work with students/job candidates/programs e.g. interesting copies of resumes, cover letters etc. My guess is that others save some of these artifacts too.  BRING YOUR FUNNY STUFF TO PennACE FOR DISPLAY where attendees can look at them and laugh.  Feel free to remove identifying information.

From there to here, from here to there, funny things are everywhere. — Dr. Seuss
