We had perfect (if a little seasonably warm) weather for yesterday’s Pinwheel Day. Between the abundant sunshine and the good vibes that hundreds of spinning plastic pinwheels spreads throughout campus it seemed like everyone was out on Founders Green for at least part of the day. Students sunbathed. Local families picnicked. Little kids played. And several Ford musicians gave impromptu concerts for the gathered crowd. We hope you managed to come away from Pinwheel Day 2012 with a smile on your face, a tune in your head and a pinwheel (or 10) in your hands. Relive the good times below.
