The Oscar Meyer wienermobile at CMC.

For all of you hot dog fans, the Oscar Meyer wienermobile is here on campus this morning.  While we had hoped they were here to host a cook-out to start off our Monday, it turns out that they’re staying at a vacation rental nearby and the wienermobile couldn’t make it up the dirt road.  If you’re a fan, catch it before they leave around 11 a.m. this morning.
