Co-Lin opens campus for Christmas

Come join the Co-Lin Natchez Family as we welcome in the Christmas Season.

Our Community Christmas Open House is scheduled from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, and we would like to invite everyone to come out and enjoy the fun.

This family event is sure to put smiles on the faces of the young and young at heart. The decorations will be sparkling, and the trees will be lit.

The campus is beautiful, but it is even more spectacular when you add some Christmas cheer. It is our gift to you during this special season of giving.

The evening’s festivities will consist of classic games, crafts and activities for all the children. Mrs. Claus has even offered to have story time for everyone.

What Christmas celebration is complete without Santa? He will be dropping in from the North Pole to visit with the children. While Santa visits, he will have one photo taken with each child for them to take home, at no cost.

Be on the lookout for Elves, too! They are flying in with Santa and Mrs. Claus to assist this year and will be serving delicious Christmas snacks.

This is one of our very favorite community events, but this year is extra special. Last year, we were unable to host our annual Community Christmas due to a fire in August 2012, which destroyed our maintenance building and all of our decorations.

So, we are very excited to be able to offer this wonderful evening of fun again. Please accept our invitation and join us on Tuesday. Co-Lin is “your” community college, and this is just a small way for us to thank you for your continued support.

I would like to wish everyone in the Miss-Lou a Merry Christmas and a peaceful new year.

Teresa Busby is vice president of Co-Lin’s Natchez campus.
