Our annual end of year celebration is almost here! The theme this year is “A Musical Christmas” and presents why Christmas is such an important holiday to Christians all over the world through music and drama.

Festivities begin with special Dickens Carolers singing in period costume in the lobby starting at 6:30 as well as an art display showing the story of Christmas. This is also a great time for pictures among the beautiful decorations and Christmas trees.

Doors for the Banquet and program open at 7PM. The Banquet will be of traditional Christmas food followed by a program highlighting popular as well as traditional Christmas music (with some participatory sing-a-longs), a dramatic reading of a famous Christmas poem, and of course the annual Christmas drama by international students portraying the first Christmas. We will also check out some international contributions to Christmas music! This is capped off with a short sharing of the significance of Christmas to Christians worldwide and dessert! There will be childcare available for children under 10 years of age during the program.

Dress is semi-formal to add a touch of elegance (but you can dress casual as well). 

If you need a ride (or can give  others one), please meet at 6:00 PM at the FOCUS transportation place at the South Park blocks on the PSU campus, SW College and SW Park, by the Stott Athletic center.  You may also get picked up at the same time at Goose Hollow this year since such a large number of you live in those apartments. We will have bus transportation from the South Park blocks at 6PM (bus leaves at 6:15) and shuttle bus outside Goose Hollow Apartments at 6:00PM (leaves at 6:15PM).
