Community College Community: Holiday Evening .....

To say that it's a little busier-than-usual around the workplace, today, would be a mild under-statement. Midland College's Holiday Evening, one of the Tall City's premier seasonal celebrations, is TONIGHT!

It's a family-friendly evening that offers, as the saying goes, 'something for everyone.' Most of the events taking place this evening are free-of-charge, and we're hoping you, your family and friends can join us. I don't think there's a single part of the college organization - students, staff and faculty - that isn't helping out in some way.

The students are a big part of the evening. The
MC Students In Philanthropy organization will be holding their annual Frito Chili Pie Fundraiser this evening from 5:15-6:30 p.m. in Marie Hall Academic Bldg. Proceeds from the event benefit SIP's spring grant-making activities.

Then there's MC's art students. There will be a
reception for the Fall Student Art Show this evening from 7:00-9:00 p.m. in the McCormick Gallery of Allison Fine Arts Building. Also taking place at Allison (tonight and tomorrow) is the MC Student Art Hallway Sale, a wonderful opportunity to get a one-of-a-kind gift for someone - or yourself! - and, at the same time, reward the work of an MC art student.

You can also enjoy the work of our students during the “Sounds of Christmas” concert presented by the MC Jazz Band and the MC Chap Singers, this evening from 7:20-8:45 p.m. in the Wagner & Brown Auditorium of the Allison Fine Arts Bldg.

But Wait! You Also Get ...

Lighting of the Hodge Carillon Tower and Carolling by MC Chap Singers at 6:45 p.m. Our physical plant staff have been hard-at-work getting lights up around the campus, and it's a sight to behold.

Christmas at the Dollye Neal Chapel, from 5:15 - 6:30 p.m. in the chapel. Enjoy music by harpist, Megan Metheney, in a candle-lit setting filled with holiday cheer. Also, plan on seeing the special holiday decorations at Hall’s Way.

And I almost forgot Santa! He'll be around the entire evening, making his list, checking it twice ... and visiting with you to find out if you've been naughty or nice.

It should be a great night, and we hope you can join us!
