Pam Hilliard, Cougar Pride Days committee chair, said, “We’re set to go. There is a lot of enthusiasm among students, faculty, staff and Pullman citizens. I’m thankful for the hard work which makes improving and beautifying campus and the city possible.”
“All the tools, including shovels and rakes are ready. Bark is piled up and ready, too. After our winter, being outside and sprucing up for spring and summer will be a pleasure.”
Opening and closing ceremonies will both start at 12:30 p.m. on March 26 and April 9 respectively. Pine Street Plaza, part of the Downtown Pullman Riverwalk, will be the opening site. The closing ceremony will take place at WSU’s Terrell Mall or at the Terrell Library in case of bad weather. Although Cougar Pride Days on campus and in Pullman ends April 6, the closing ceremony is scheduled for April 9, said Hilliard.
