Stone Soup: What is the taste of Williams?
As the classic story goes, many contributions to one shared pot result in a delicious soup. On Claiming Williams Day, our campus stone soup will reflect the generosity, diversity, and cooperation students, staff, and faculty invest in our community. Contributions from the Williams community are critical to make stone soup successful. Please bring an ingredient to offer to the process on Claiming Williams Day. Only a small amount (1/4–1/2 pound) of any particular ingredient is necessary; smaller quantities are also gladly accepted. The stone soup will be prepared on Paresky steps the afternoon of Claiming Williams. Bring foods that you believe represent something about yourself: a specific vegetable, a favorite cheese, a family spice blend, or a traditional grain are just a few examples of the many possibilities. No ingredient will be refused! Those contributing ingredients will be asked to record their names, contribution, and note the personal significance of their contribution. Participants will also have the opportunity to write a part of a Williams-specific version of the stone soup story.
