Staples Cannot Deter Beloiters

Some readers may have noticed a fundraising envelope inserted into the last issue of our magazine.
  • Gift box with a staple remover for Beloiters who returned a gift envelope.

Because of a snafu at the printer, some of those envelopes were mistakenly stapled right through the spine of the publication. But the staple was no match for the Beloiters who apparently disassembled their magazines to retrieve the envelopes, which they sent in with their gifts—staple holes serving as evidence of their determination.

For their efforts, Frances Klaverkamp’16, who works in the college’s Development Office, sent them a gift box with a handwritten thank you note and what else? A staple remover.
