That vast, friendly planetary rumble you sensed on May 13? That was the sound of a worldwide collective of 3,500 Yale alumni, family, and friends—digging, raking, stacking, painting, cleaning, and embodying countless other action verbs at more than 200 sites during the ninth annual Yale Day of Service. In the photo at left, Georgi Sidjimkov ’01MBA, Angela Rodel ’96, and Kerana Rodel chop vegetables at a soup kitchen in Sofia, Bulgaria.
