Bev Fetter, long-time exemplary employee of the Space Studies Department, celebrates her 29th birthday this week. Often overrun by the famous holiday Valentines’ Day, her colleagues and students in the department thought that a surprise early celebration was the way to go. A few Space Studies elves thought it necessary to create artwork upon carbon dioxide filled latex inflatables that covered the floor of her workspace and write the message “Happy Almost Birthday Bev” on the glass surrounding Fetter’s office. Justin Bieber was the theme of the celebration, and faculty/staff in the department were great sports, wearing their conical shaped party hats which read “Simply Marvelous at Any Age” to support Fetter while eating delicious chocolate cake and snacks. Fetter, the Jedi Master for the day, was pleasantly surprised and is happy that she has almost completed another trip around the Sun. Happy Birthday Bev!
