MAC prepares for annual Christmas Celebration

Mrs. Claus reads “T’was the Night Before Christmas” to the kids as Santa Claus listens in. The pair will be returning to this year’s Christmas celebration and tree lighting at Mineral Area College which takes place from 5-6 p.m. Dec. 12 in the concourse on MAC’s Park Hills campus.

With an eye toward celebrating the coming holidays and offering holiday cheer to the community, Mineral Area College staff members are planning the community college’s annual Christmas Celebration from 5-6 p.m. Dec. 12, in the concourse area of the Arts & Sciences Building.

The event is free and open to the public.

In addition to the annual tree lighting, holiday music, cookies with hot cocoa, decorating stockings, and children’s visits with Santa, the children will receive a present directly from the North Pole.

“Everyone involved is looking forward to spreading Christmas joy and high spirits to our community this year,” said Erin Sites, MAC assistant. “MAC’s Jazz Band and MAC Singers will be our entertainment for the evening. Mrs. Claus will read ‘The Night Before Christmas,’ and for the grand finale, Santa Claus will make his appearance. Of course, he won’t arrive empty-handed; he’ll certainly have surprises for all of the children.”

MAC employees will be selling chances to win a Lottery Tree, with all of the proceeds going to the college food pantry.
