Wells College News
As many of you know, the Wells mailroom [which is located in Main Building, near the back entrance] offers the full service of a normal post office. Need to send out a personal package when the U.S. Post Office is closed? Let us do it for you!
NOW, UPS is being offered as well! Wells is a daily pick up/drop off location for UPS and whether you have a prepaid printed out label or need to arrange payment, just let me do the work! UPS often offers a more affordable service and also includes tracking numbers with shipments. UPS is a better option when time is not an issue as they are not always as quick of a service, but often is a cheaper rate.
Right now, the summer mailroom hours are difficult-I am the only employee in the summer months and the mailroom itself is often closed as I run around delivering/picking up mail and packages through campus. In the fall, the mailroom will be open 830-430 daily and 9-12 on Saturdays! To offer service to residents it may be more efficient to wait until 9/1, or call ahead to the number below.

Help with the Feral Cat Population
Maureen Seaman works in Aurora and is concerned about the village’s feral and roaming cat population. In an effort to help both the cats, primarily living around the Wells campus, and the village, she has contacted Dr. Paul Maza and his team at the Cornell University Veterinary School who use a technique called Trap, Neuter, and Release. The cats will be trapped overnight and as many cats as possible will be neutered and vaccinated the next day, and then released back into the area to live out their lives. This is the safest and most humane way of taking care of a feral cat population. The tentative date to set traps is July 31st with the clinic on August 1st…
Maureen is currently raising the funds to complete this project. Dr. Maza’s clinic will come and run the TNR at a cost of $40 per cat for as many felines as they are able, regardless of how much we are able to raise. Any excess funds will be used to purchase food for the cats.

The beginning stages of an Aurora fitness trail is underway! Using the sidewalks, pocket parks, and the village park behind the Inn, you will soon be able to get a great workout of your own design right in the village. With the help of Certified Personal Trainer Chris Brozon of Barn Warriors Cross Fit, we are designing workouts at each park in the village. There is a station for cardio, upper body, core and legs as well as half mile marks on the sidewalks to know how far you are jogging, running, or walking. Look for a kick-off event in the early fall!
