More than 80 children of Central Lakes College parents enjoyed the 2011 holiday party on the Brainerd campus Dec. 14, where the Staples and Brainerd campus student senates coordinated activities for a festive and fun-filled evening. The party is held annually for all CLC single parents and their children. The party includes games, crafts, dinner, and a visit from Santa Claus. Thanks to the generosity of CLC staff and students, each child went home with a gift. "The Student Senate really looks forward to this event each year and senators are already talking about next year," said Erich Heppner, director of student life. Santa was Staples Student Senator James Deegan.
