MAC Opens Its Doors for the Annual Cardinal Christmas Celebration
PARK HILLS, Mo. – To celebrate the coming holidays and offer cheer to the community, Mineral Area College is planning the community college’s annual Cardinal Christmas Celebration from 5-7 p.m., Thursday, December 8th on the Park Hills campus. The event is free and open to the public.
Festivities will kick off with an annual tree lighting ceremony in the Arts and Sciences Concourse, but the cheer will be spread throughout campus with four themed areas to enjoy—Candy Cane Lane (Technology Building), Winter Wonderland (Arts and Sciences Concourse), The Grinch (Library), and Santa & Mrs. Claus (Student Services). Each location will have its own special holiday music, food, craft, or activity.
North County and Central schools, as well as Mineral Area Fine Arts Academy, will provide musical entertainment, and an old favorite will return as Santa and Mrs. Claus read 'Twas The Night Before Christmas. As always, children who visit can expect a present from the jolly couple!
“Our staff is excited to welcome you to campus for our annual holiday celebration,” said MAC President Dr. Joe Gilgour. “From live music to kids’ crafts and visits with Santa and Mrs. Claus, there’s something for everyone to enjoy! We look forward to seeing you there.”
Parking will be available in Student Lot A or Faculty Lot 1 at the front of campus. The Technology building entrance will take visitors to Candy Cane Lane. The event is free, but donations of non-perishable food will be accepted for the MAC Food Pantry.
