May 2, 2008 – Last Friday, HCL Operations thanked the custodial crew and movers, expressing appreciation for their hard work during a particularly snowy winter with a lunch hosted in the Lamont Forum Room.

"It was a tough winter," said Paul Bellenoit, Director of Operations and Security, addressing the assembled staff, "and you did a great job both inside and out."

The custodians, in addition to their daily maintenance work inside the libraries, were responsible for removing snow and ice from library entryways and paths in order to keep buildings accessible to patrons and staff. The movers likewise braved messy and icy roads all winter as they transported materials back and forth between Widener Library and 625 Mass. Ave. In addition to moving books, they also transport the majority of materials during office moves throughout HCL.

The custodians and movers, who are not part of the HCL staff but rather vendors who work closely with HCL, were also recognized for their instrumental work in cleaning up after the Pusey water emergency in March. They responded to Operations' call for assistance well after midnight and worked straight through the night until six o'clock the next morning.
