Caroling, seasonal energy at CLC

The Central Lakes College Chamber Singers strolled the Brainerd campus during the lunch hour Thurs., Dec. 9, wishing happy holidays and spreading musical cheer through season carols. The group passed through the Cube and into the Administrative Suite, where staff enjoying a festive potluck lunch delighted in the vocal expression delivered by students under the direction of Brenda Handel-Johnson. The CLC campuses are adorned with festive greenery and colorful holiday floral arrangements, thanks to the students in the Horticulture program. Student clubs and organizations are enjoying the tree decorating competition. A special tree contains envelopes with children's gift needs waiting the "adoption" of willing college benefactors. On Dec. 15, the annual single-parent children's holiday event will be hosted by the student senate in the Fireside Lounge, with a special appearance from St. Nicholas himself. Games, crafts, food, and gifts are part of the late-afternoon party. The fall term's final exams Dec. 14-17 wrap up the semester, with the school vacation for students at CLC until Jan. 10, 2011 when the spring term starts.
