Ringed with crushed stone and benches that might have been erected by Druids long ago, this installation is a magnet for great social interaction and fun, as was proved at its inaugural firing Saturday. (The location is north of Slocumb--which is seen in the background--immediately east of North Street, right in the center of campus.)
