Fountain Day is organized by the Mount Vernon Programming Council, with most of its planning headed up by co-chairs Swetha Ramaswamy, Kylee Grenis and their advisor Ashley Venneman. This year, the event is co-sponsored by Haagen Dazs, hopefully meaning ice cream will be plentiful.
Volunteers are welcome and are mostly needed the day of the event. Ramaswamy said that they find most of their volunteers through student organizations like the Program Board, but anyone looking to lend a hand is encouraged to contact the Mount Vernon Programming Council.
This theme for this year’s Fountain Day is awareness and the event will feature a great deal of tabling by political and student social organizations including Green GW, GW Stand, both the College Democrats and College Republicans, and WRGW.
