Inaugural Tar Heel Service Day set for October
Carolina Clubs have long been involved in making their communities better by bringing a Tar Heel brand of com-
passion and ingenuity to their local activities.
But never before have UNC alumni banded
together the way they will this October.
As part of a nationwide public service
effort sponsored by local Carolina Clubs and
in celebration of University Day, the first Tar
Heel Service Day has been slated for observance
Oct. 12- 14. The goal is for all 85 clubs across
the United States to participate in a commu-
nity service project during that weekend.
To date, plans are in the works for club
members to volunteer at soup kitchens, food
banks and with children's causes; work with
neighborhood beautification and environmen-
tal projects; and help with literacy programs.
In the Charlotte area, clubs are joining forces
to throw a charity golf tournament. And in
Wake County, alumni will compete with N.C.
State loyalists in a rival blood drive.

Atlanta-Area Alumni Welcome New Carolina Club
N othlng makes a Tar Heel game better than watchlng it with fellow Tar Heels. For Atlanta resident Steve
Long ' 90, the love of Carolina sports blossomed inro a new network of friends.
Long is club leader of the Rainbow
Carolina Club of Atlanta. Although the club
was officially founded in July, Long says he
thought of the idea about a year ago.
''I'm still a huge UNC sports fan and
wanted to find some other gay and lesbian
alumni to watch games with," Long said."The
group sort of evolved from that."
He contacted Rick A. Davis ' 85, director of
enrichment at the General Alumni
Association, and they worked together to spur
the club's growth.
"We had the Atlanta Carolina Club send
S ep , e"' b er/0 C,ob er 2 0 0 ' 1
out a notice about the formation of the group
in an e-mail last fall," Long said."I got some
responses from that as well as an ad I placed in
a local gay and lesbian newspaper. Word of
mouth helped bring in other alumni, and our
numbers continue to grow."
The Rainbow Atlanta Carolina Club now
has about 25 to 30 members. The new club
will co-sponsor, along with Atlanta's other area
Carolina clubs, the Georgia Tech-UNC foot-
ball pre-game party at the Atlanta Brewing
Company on Nov. 1.
Although the club is relatively new, there
are tentative plans for other events besides
"We're still trying to get things organized as
far as activities," Long said."We may have a
group participate in the AIDS Walk here in
Atlanta this October, which will coincide with
the Tar Heel Service Day."
